I know it's unexpected, @Karla65. Let me help you get back to your working track.
The error 404 means that the web page you're trying to reach could not be found on the server. Let's run some basic troubleshooting steps to isolate the problem. We can start with checking if your computer is connected to the internet and then accessing QuickBooks Online in a private browser. Usually, this resolves any browser-related issues since it avoids cache data that may also be causing the page unable to load.
Here's how to open a private browser:
Then sign in as a primary or company admin, then try paying your contractors in the Contractor tab in Payroll again. If it works fine using the private browser, open your account using the original browser and clear your regular browser's cache. You may also try accessing your account using another supported browser.
Please tell me how it goes or if you have other QuickBooks Online Payroll navigation concerns. I'm always here to help you more. Keep safe.
I appreciate your prompt response, @Karla65. I can help you resolve the error 404 you've encountered in QuickBooks Online.

I see how important to run payroll for your contractors. As advised, we'll need to sign in as a master admin to pay contractors. Still, I'd suggest contacting our Support Team since you've performed it already and still experiencing the same result. We'll have to conduct a set of examinations to determine why it is happening in your book. To contact us, we can follow the same steps shared above.
