We need a link to the page, and what version(s) of IE is it not working in.

The HTML validator throws 48 errors; some of which are serious and indicative of structural issues.  The page is apparently supposed to be HTML5, but has  obsolete attributes attached to some tags.  The CSS and scripting are a jungle.

The most like causes are the page structure not being valid.  The excessive sripting has aIE incompatibility or there is a conflict between js libraries.  It appears that the menu generation is either be terminated, or overridden by some of the other junk stuffed into the page.

You should start by cleaning up the page so it validates, and then strip out every not need for the menu.  If it does no work on its own in IE, then the problem is in the menu scripting.  If it does work then bring back each of the other libraries until it breaks and you will know the culprit.
