    Hi Steve,

    HTTP Error 404.0 – Not Found
    The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.
    Most likely causes:
    The directory or file specified does not exist on the Web server.
    The URL contains a typographical error.
    A custom filter or module, such as URLScan, restricts access to the file.
    Things you can try:
    Create the content on the Web server.
    Review the browser URL.
    Create a tracing rule to track failed requests for this HTTP status code and see which module is calling SetStatus. For more information about creating a tracing rule for failed requests, click here.
    Detailed Error Information:
    IIS Web Core
    Error Code
    Requested URL
    Physical Path
    Logon Method
    Logon User

    Pls help
