Sitecore Launchpad is giving "This type of page is not served"

Hi all -

I am on Sitecore Version 8.2 and I am setting a new localhost. The Sitecore login page launches fine and lets me in. However, the launchpad is giving the error in screenshot below. Any page (like the control panel) under /sitecore/shell/client/applications is throwing the same error.

This type of page is not served.

Description: The type of page you have requested is not served because it has been explicitly forbidden.     Please review the URL below and make sure that it is spelled correctly.

Requested URL: /sitecore/client/Applications/Launchpad

I spent quit sometime trying to figure this out. Can someone please help?

Thank you much.
