I get the message, "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" (SEE ATTACHED) when I try to connect to the Sharepoint Admin site.
When I click "Explore additional options" I get the normal login screen and can then get to the Admin site. Any suggestions on how to fix this issue?  Thanks error message

1. Try enabling compatibility mode. It is the broken page icon next to the refresh button on the toolbar.

2.If that doesn’t work, run IE in No Add-ons Mode.
--> Go to Start
--> All Programs
--> Accessories
--> System Tools
--> Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) –
If this fixes the issue, then go to Tools- -> Manage Add-ons and enable the add-ons one by one to find which one was causing the problem.

You can also try resetting Internet Explorer's settings by going to
--> Tools
-- > Internet Options and then the "Advanced" tab, and click "Reset..."

If you’re still not having any luck, I recommend you reinstall IE8 on your system.
Good Luck
