"Content Encoding Error" on a NEW Confluence install cannot access any content

Content Encoding Error

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression.

When i try to view a page which i just created on a fresh installed Confluence ( Latest Version ) 4.3.7

I have checked with Firefox and Chrome, they both give same error
