What is Software Castle?

At my home computer when I try to get onto the forums it loads a page called Software Castle but when I come to the forums from work it works fine. Was there a server problem? I know I'm not infected with any spyware/viruses.

ADD Forums has no connection at all to Software Castle and I have no idea why you're seeing this message at home. Perhaps you should run an adware program of some sort, as it appears that something is going on with your system.

I had the same error too, ran spyware checks with no issue. I could connect fine using a proxy though.

Just had it again, cleared the cache and reloaded the page. Worked fine.

My fault I think, I have a habit of omitting the 'www' part of a URL, using; http://addforums.com/ goes to The Software Castle.

They have an entirely different IP address than you guys too. It's still happening at home. What happens is if I type in addforums.com and then it will load the main page and then it will 404 and say there is no page because it is trying to talk to Software Castle.

By any chance did you guys change servers last night? It could be an issue with the DNS not propogating throughout the entire web yet.

Yeah that would probably be the reason why this is happening. DNS can cause problems like this with other sites resolving while typing in addforums.com. If it has been fixed by your host then the problem should subside eventually once all the DNS servers have updated

I had the same problem-was on the site successfully for quite awhile this afternoon and all of a sudden, Castle Software was the only result that showed up.

It looks like your hard work paid off, I am back on and see no more problems. Thanks! You all are great, sorry you had to deal with this though. You should feel very satisfied that this forum means so much and is used by so many people!

I was seeing the same thing myself this afternoon (for the 1st time) when I was trying to go to the forums. I have addforums bookmarked and always use that link and it always works. So I know I am not typing the address in wrong..... I have no idea why that happened earlier...
