Can't find anything about this..anyone have any idea what it's about
and how to deal with it?

What are you doing when the message appears? It sounds like a web server
having a problem rewriting a url.

Are you running any software that gets weather information?
The reason I ask, after doing a quick google search on that kind of error,
all of "Invalid location provided" errors relate to getting weather
information.

In fact I am. I have the Weather Channel goody that came with the
computer. I searched twice, through dogpile, and never found any
mention of that error.
