Default Internet Explorer won't connect to my server


I have another problem with Internet Explorer!

I have a small site that I set up for the employees where I work. It had been hosted on a free host for the past year or so but the host decided to keel over and die so I decided to set up a server at home to host it on.

The site was working perfectly on IE and Firefox when it was on the free host. I simply uploaded the files from my most recent backup to the new server and everything works great in Firefox now but not in IE.

When I try to pull it up with IE this is what I get:
The webpage cannot be displayed

Most likely cause:
Some content or files on this webpage require a program that you don't have installed.
The index page uses a simple PHP script but I tried a basic HTML page to see if that was the problem and had the same results.

I'm guessing that this is a simple change in my server settings but after spending some time on Google I am still coming up empty!

Any help you guys can offer would be greatly appreciated!
