material flag is being ignored?

A Question for Team Fortress 2

Question Solved

This Question was answered and a solution was chosen.
I can't find any information on this at all and I asked around in multiple places. how can I make tf2 stop ignoring the $ignorez material flag? I tried it in hl2 aswell which didn't work either.

edit: I found the command: mat_reloadallmaterials

    You could reload your materials with a single command.
    And get $ignorez working.

    You have a VMT file that uses $ignorez on a material 
    Usually $ignorez is used on UI and Skybox Textures, however it's also able to be applied onto models
    Before $ignorez got patched, It was used as an exploit to see models through walls. After it was patched, the message in your picture will be shown.

    You either have a mod installed with $ignorez in a VMT or you downloaded a VMT from a community server that uses $ignorez on a model. To fix this you either need to delete the VMT or edit the VMT and remove $ignorez from the file

    (Also I don't know the folder location since the console doesn't show the location of the VMT file so try to find it)
