I've recently checked my Apache's error log, and I found some interesting things in there:

[Mon Aug 29 12:04:06 2011] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] File does not exist: D:/Websites/htdocs/quant.js, referer: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3719549/where-does-the-php-error-log-reside-in-xampp

It seems that you have some relative linking that should be absolute, (or reformatted better?)

Any comments on this one?

You've got quite big trouble. But I have no idea where this appears. There's nothing in HTML source. When you access it, do you have more errors like this? –  genesis Aug 29 '11 at 9:14
    
When I access it it does indeed redirect to my own localhost (and returns a 404 error of course, as I don't have these files) –  Second Rikudo Aug 29 '11 at 9:38
    
Ouch, -5? That hurts you know :( –  Second Rikudo Aug 29 '11 at 13:03

Question shouldn't be closed. It just helped me. Many people block ads on webpages in the manner mentioned in the accepted answer. ...seems like at least the 9 people who upvoted the answer thought it was useful –  Gerrat May 11 '12 at 12:25
    
@Gerrat: It being closed doesn't make it unavailable to anyone. If it were deleted though, that would be a different story. –  Second Rikudo May 11 '12 at 18:28

You have probably mapped those domain names (QuantCast and Google Analytics respectively) to 127.0.0.1 in your local hosts file, therefore your browser is trying to retrieve them locally.

Not our problem.

I only have 2 uncommented lines in my hosts file and they are not related to neither. I have nothing there redirecting to localhost anyway. –  Second Rikudo Aug 29 '11 at 9:34

could be ad block or "privacy" software. Try on a clean OS install in a fresh browser. –  Jeff Atwood Aug 29 '11 at 12:54
    
An ad block is a possiblity as I am using one, I'll try and see :)\ –  Second Rikudo Aug 29 '11 at 13:02
