My access log files have recently been filling up with 400 errors. In all of 
these lines I see Microsoft URL Control 6.00.8169

62.253.x.x - - [16/Jun/2002:12:11:01 +0100] "GET /../../index.html HTTP/1.1" 
400 360 "-" "Microsoft URL Control - 6.00.8169" 0 www.mysite.com "-"

>From what I gather from searching the web this usually indicates a nasty 
robot that is not obeying the rules. But the the IP address looks like a 
fixed cable customer address. Checking the rest of the logs shows that this 
is a regular visitor to my site. He views other pages fine, but sometimes 
gives this 400 error.
