I reinstalled it a couple of times. But still no luck.

Can you try changing your Router Mode to Localhost? You can find this by going to Preferences>Advanced>Router Mode

The same site was not loading, so I deleted it and reinstalled a new site, but the same error appeared. I don’t have any antivirus software but the Windows Defender is turned on.
Thanks for sharing the trouble shooting link.

You might have to look at your Windows Defender settings to make sure it’s not blocking Local. Here is an example:
