Hello
I have been working on a site for a doctor, I used Joomla 2.5 and a Rockettheme template(called Clarion). The website looks exactly the way it should in Internet Explorer 9, chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera. But it is not working correctly in IE6, 7 or 8.
The menu is gone, and the site is alligned to the left.
I noticed there are CSS files that are called template-ie6.css, template-ie7.css , template-ie8.css
inside the template.  
I have no clue where to start fixing this issue.
I attached all css files.
Please help.
Thank you
template.css
template-ie6.css
template-ie7.css
template-ie8.css

You don't have to make it work in IE 6. IE 6 is notoriously horrible. Look for compatability mode in the other versions (I know 8 and 9 have it). IE is so broken.

This problem only seems to occur in the non-legal version available through various torrents, though I'll not post the solution to your problem.

I did not get this version via torrent, I have a Membership with Rockettheme and downloaded it from there.
I asked my question in their forum as well, here is what they said.

"The problem you are having with IE is because your site is generating Quirks mode. You will need to check to see if anything has been added to the template to cause this as the default template works just fine in IE7,8 & 9. You can read more here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quirks_mode

As for IE6 it is dead and buried so stop considering it. Not even supported by Microsoft now. :cheesy:"
