get browser type using ASP

I have the following code in my page to find out the browser type. I am using Internet Explorer 7. But how comes the result returning the Browser is Netscape...?

the result which I got is

output:
Browser: Netscape
Version: 4.00
Majorver: 4
Minorver: 00
Platform: unknown
Supports frames: True
Supports tables: True
Supports cookies: True
Supports JavaScript: True

thanks

Probably because you are using no or an old Browsercap.ini file which does not have the correct information.
