Hi there,
I'm unable to access this particular website: https://connexis.bnpparibas.com/.

But however some of the machines in the office are able to access. like Win XP with IE6.

But with Win & using IE8, it just told me Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage.

Kindly assist.

Regards,
Lawrence

Unfortunately, some websites are not made compatible for every browser (poor web-designing). Try using Firefox or Google Chrome to open this website as it is working fine on my Firefox.

I just checked on my IE 8 and it runs fine however. You might need to download and install the latest service pack, everything new for internet explorer can be found and downloaded here for free (including the new IE 9):

I second TRTurner's advice and I would also just browse to windowsupdate.microsoft.com to have MS pick up any updates / service packs needed.

Have you tried using compatibility mode?

See: Introducing Compatibility View at http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ie/archive/2008/08/27/introducing-compatibility-view.aspx

also: Understanding Compatibility Modes in Internet Explorer 8 at http://blogs.msdn.com/b/askie/archive/2009/03/23/understanding-compatibility-modes-in-internet-explorer-8.aspx

This usually fixes any issues.
