xml files are show as plain text on IE

IE7 and even IE8 are not showing XML the way they should.
I have a simple xml file, test.xml:
<note>
   <to>Tove</to>
   <from>Jani</from>
   <heading>Reminder</heading>
   <body>Don't forget me this weekend!</body>
</note>
When I open the file in Firefox it is show in a tree form I imagine using the xsl default style sheet and if I introduce an error then Firefox is able to tell me where the error is.

If I try to open the same file using IE I'm only getting the plain text file, like viewing the source od the file.

I've try everything and I've been looking around with no avail. Any suggestions please?

Thanks.

I do not have this problem with IE

Maybe a setting in your IE?

It also works on mine.

I have a vague recolection that IE use a form of xsl file to do the formatting and that sometimes that file can get lost or alterred.

Is working on some machines with IE7 and IE8 but on the rest is not working so that's why it seems strange to me.

Here are some screenshots:

Hope this help to clarify my situation.

I suggest you go to Tools -> Internet options and compare the items in the security tab, and in the Advanced tab.
I assume that on the browsers that are not showing you the information, scripting is turned off.

And I hate to ask the obvious, but have you gone into the Advanced Options>Reset on a failed one?

SamKiraAuthor Commented:
Yes, I hit reset on the advanced options and also compared both pc's and everything is exactly the same.

I think it should be something related to missing or corrupted files? Or any other configuration outside Internet Explorer?
