That shouldn't be happening... Could you answer a few questions that 
may help us figure out the cause of your problems:

- which version did you install? Did you download the .tar.gz from the 
validator.w3.org site? Or did you download the development version from 

- Which installation guide did you follow?

- is your installation visible from the Web, or is it on a private 

- what server did you install the validator upon? (apache, IIS, other?) 
How did you configure it to serve the validator? Could you show us the 
relevant part of the configuration file (send that to me only, not the 
whole public mailing-list, if necessary)

- what is the size of the file located at httpd/cgi-bin/check ?

I suspect either that there was a mistake in how you configured the Web 
server for the validator, or perhaps that you accidentally copied the 
configuration file over the "check" file. Either way, this should be 
easy to fix as soon as we understand the cause of the problem.
