I guess it is the response from a machine that is incorrectly used as proxy.

If you do not need a proxy, then disable its use in IE (I have no idea how you
can do this)
If you need a proxy, copy the config you have in netscape as you said it is
working. Do not forget the port number.

If it is not a proxy config problem... I have no clue what it could be.

HTH,
