Weird encoding characters and "Continue" link for any changes

I have Pro v3.03 installed in my local machine under IIS7. I've been twisting around the dev site in my local for two weeks and everything was fine until yesterday - there was a group of encoded characters on top of every page in both Store Front and Admin. In Admin, there was “Continue” link after characters. I can click it to go to next page, or wait couple of seconds for auto redirect. This happened on every time I made changes in Admin, like changing product info etc. In addition, this “characters & Continue” happened in Store Front for any changes, like removing product from shopping cart.



I am using FF. The following is the encoded characers.

I have been having the same problem the last few days with a random continue page popping up. Also items aren't being added to the cart.

I did site search for “INDX” and found the whole encoded characters in “addons/discussion/config.php”. However, when I directly opened that file, I saw correct php coding, nothing was encoded. Then I disabled “Comments and reviews” and everything was back to normal. So I Active the add-on, same issue happened again. I guess it's a bug in Comments and Reviews?



Anyone have the same issue?

Tech support offered a simple solution - replace the encoded file with original file from the package.



Hope this could be a tips for people run into similar problems - just replace the original file should put things back to normal.
