I can, so the problem is at your end :-)

How does the problem show itself?

It could be that you are sending application/xhtml+xml in the accept 
headers, and so being sent that version, which IE cannot process.

Check your headers here:


If that is the problem, I'm pretty sure Masayasu knows the keys you have 
to edit in the Windows registry to fix it (or search for the string, I 
believe it's fairly obvious).

(There is a rogue piece of XML software that is known to add this string 
  to your accept headers for some unknown reason).

Best wishes,
