Post Method not working for IE, but works for other browsers

I have been trying to solve this problem for a while now and have it narrowed down.

I am on an XP SP2 trying to run ASP.NET. The page I can't seem to get to work is:

<%@ Page Language="VB" Trace="true" ContentType="text/html" ResponseEncoding="iso-8859-1" %>
<script runat="server" language="VB">
Sub Page_Load(Sender As Object, E As EventArgs)
If Page.IsPostBack Then
Select cmbPeople.value
Case "Bill Gates"
Case "Larry Ellison"
Response.Redirect ("")
Case "Steve Case"
Response.Redirect ("")
Case Else
End Select
End If
End Sub
<form id="frmPeople" method="post" runat="server">
<select id="cmbPeople" runat="server">
<option>Bill Gates</option>
<option>Larry Ellison</option>
<option>Steve Case</option>
<input type="submit" value="Submit">

This code works fine on Mozilla and Netscape on the same machine.
If I change the form method to "get", it works everywhere - including IE.
The old file (with post) works fine on my other machine, however.
Why would IE have a problem with POST?
I am running an MS OS (XP), MS web server (IIS) and the only program that doesn't seem to work on my machine is the MS Browser (IE).

I just found out this only happens on my machine, running IE and IIS (as mentioned Netscape and Mozilla running on the same machine work fine).

However, I just found that if I go to another XP machine and run the page on my machine, it works fine.
For example:
My machine is and is running IE and IIS and is an XP SP2.
If I run localhost/development/test10.aspx
It doesn't work.
I go to another machine and run:
It works.
Why would this be?
