Just rename the plugin dir through FTP and it'll deactivate. It's probably clashing with another plugin...

  • Thanks. I found it was clashing with gzip - I removed the line of gzip at the top of the header.php, the site worked, i then turned off the force rewrite, and then reinserted the line of code and all works ok - very strange but relief.
