Sometimes when surfing the internet an error that states 400 bad request might be encountered. This is an issues that typically occurs during the exchange of data information during the beginning of bringing a new page up. Basically a 400 bad request is when the information is not correct when visiting a website. There are different points in which the initial information exchange can cause a 400 bad request error, however more often than not the bad request error comes from other reasons not related to the actual data that is transferred. Listed below are some of the reasons why 400 bad request errors can take place.
Virus, malware, spyware or other malicious programs can cause 400 bad request errors to happen as there are different types of infections that will actually take control of your computers traffic and change the destination of the pages you are going to. If this is the case it is often hard to identify an infection other than the error codes of 400 bad requests being displayed, or changes to the destination. One example of this change in destination is if you were trying to get to a website such as www.google.com and the bad software actually took you to another domain or website even though you wanted to go to www.google.com. The best way to fix this issues, and prevent it from happening, is to get the most current updates for the operating system that is being used as well as using an anti-virus program and anti-malware. These will not only remove bad programs but prevent them from coming onto the computer and causing 400 bad request errors.
400 bad request errors can also occur if there are issues with the internet such as dropping of access or intermittent issues. This can cause 400 bad request errors if the website is trying to be contacted but the internet connection is lost. This will make it so that the data cannot be transferred as there is no connection. If this is an issue that is being seen it is best to try to figure out why the connection is not good and repair the issue.
Another possibility of the cause of 400 bad request errors is if the actual website that is being contacted is having problems with sending information. The best way to check if this is the issue is to try to access other websites. If the other websites that are being contacted to not cause 400 bad request errors to come up then it is most likely due to the actual websites issues that are causing the issues. If this is the case the best thing to do is to try to contact the websites tech or admin person and advise of the issues to try to resolve them as quickly as possible.

One of the easiest things to try is to download a registry cleaner to ensure that none of the problems are caused by any issues related to the registry of the computer being used.
