IE 7’s friendly HTTP messages are unfriendly if you want IIS To do custom error messages

So IE7, by default, overrides Web Servers’ custom error messages with very helpful “friendly” reinterpretations of error messages. To turn these off through the UI, go to Internet Options -> Advanced, and disable “Show friendly HTTP error messages”.

Thanks, Microsoft!
