    Cannot access FTP sites in Internet Explorer 8

    Titles says everything what meant to say here. Very short question. I am unable to access any FTP sites on my Internet explorer 8. I even tried resetting the browser but no success. Could you guys please make me know what is the problem and how can I solve it ?

    See whenever you will go and access an FTP site. The IE will try to display the FTP site in the HTML view.

    • All you have to do is go to the IE 8.
    • Then click tool option.
    • Then click on internet option.
    • Then select the advanced option.
    • Then later on you will find an option for Enable FTP folder view which will be outside of internet explorer. These you have to enable, that’s it.

    Thanks a lot friend, though there is no success yet. I went through IE 8 security setting then reset it to default. Yet the same problem.

    I have been through this problem before, but it was due to some problem with registry. In my case I fixed it by exporting the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ftp key from other computer which was working perfect and importing these to the broken one. But first the most important thing is that you have to create a back up. Don’t forget to back up the registry on the broken computer.

    Before entering the registry (playing with registry is not safe), just open this URL.

    It is the Microsoft Fix It Tool and is best.
