Up until a couple of days ago the website was working okay but now: www.adorabledora.com.au Wont load in any Internet Explorer it will load partially then display a Error 404 I've had friends try to load the website on there computers in IE and they say the same things happen. The website loads fine in Chrome, Firefox, Safari and on Android phones.

If you can open IE:
search www.adorabledora.com.au
You will be able to see the partial load then 404.

I'm wondering if the problem is through the website code as I have tried the website on 2 different Hosts with the same problem.

Any help will be most appreciated. This is the first job I have logged and if it's resolved I will definetly use this website again !

I should Stipulate I have designed the website and need the website to be compatible across all browsers. Thanks for your help Samnasser but The last message did not work !

404's on /style.css /cshover2.htc & /MyFontsWebFonts.css

If you fix the /MyFontsWebFonts.css it will probably work ok..

Most pages have a invalid character at line1 character 1 (a space maybe?)

RoyalGraphics--The site works fine using my IE10.  This suggests the problem is with your IE and not the website.
Try running IE without Add-ons.
Put the site into Trusted Sites.

However, if you feel coding is the problem you may find help here

if you remove the site from compatibility view it shows properly..  Otherwise it will flash and then you get the 404 error message.
