Cannot access IIS FTP on IE 8 , windows 2008 R2 server


I am not able to access FTP on windows 2008 R2 server having IE8.
FTP is accessible from other servers except from this server.   "Internet Explorer Cannot Display The Webpage"

Tried below steps but no luck.

Firewall is off
Tried making IEESC status to Off
disabled Antivirus
Compared IE settings same as another server's IE where FTP is working.

What else can i check or what might be missing here?? Please help.

Have you tried with other browser i.e Chrome or Firefox>

I have read somewhere that this might be issue with corrupt regisrty key

Export HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ftp key from a computer that works fine and importing it into the broken one.  

Make sure to back up the registry on the broken computer first and that you only do the ftp key.

Can you use an FTP client on the computer to connect to itself on

Registry value was copied from the server where FTP is working but no luck.
FTP is not setup on this server. But its accessible from other servers and desktops too.
