Wikipedia MIME problem

  BILL WHITE 19:05 31 Mar 2009

When I try to access Wikipedia articles using IE8 and XP, instead of getting the web page I get a message saying that it is an unkown file type :
MIME Type application/x - gzip compressed
'Windows does not recognise this MIME type'

I used to access Wikipedia on AOL with no problems. Any ideas, please?

Many thanks

I registered with Wikipedia and now seems ok but never had to register before.
