"Old thread, but I thought this may help someone.

Windows 7 Pro / IE 11

I had the exact same issue (http://localhost works in Chrome, and 127.0.0.1 worked in IE too). Tried various things like updating hosts file entry, disable ipv6 in network settings etc.. nothing worked.

Finally fixed by adding http://localhost to trusted site in IE Settings Internet Options>Security>Trusted sites. Make sure to un check the ""Require Server verification (https).. "" option when adding the trusted site address."
