Source File: c:\4833248\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\Temporary ASP.NET Files\root\30e2fac9\c8e43583\App_Web_thveb1ei.6.cs Line: 0

You need to add validateRequest="false" in either the @Page directive at the top of the ASP.Net page(on which particular page this issue is being generated) or in the "web.config" file(if you want to avoid this particular issue with all of your other pages too, for the same web application).

Please Note: If you're using .net 4, you need to drop back to the validation mode from 2.0, by altering web.config slightly and adding the following:

<httpRuntime requestValidationMode="2.0" />

Hope this will help.
