ASP.Net clientId render incorrectly.

On some PCs (not all) my the clientIds in a repeater control get out of whack. This problem is specific to IE11 but I don't see the issue on most IE 11 PCs. I have a PC in my development environment that has the problem, I have another one that does not. Both these PCs are running Win 7 64 bit and the IE setup is identical. I've tried several variations of the page directive "ClientIDMode" but it doesn't seem to correct my issue.
I've also tried some meta tags to force it to render in a specific IE version but that had no affect. See attachment for more details

 Thanks in advance






Server is: IIS7 .net 4.5
Website is: C# vs 2012

Specify client id mode to "Predictable"

example:

<asp :TextBox ID ="txt" runat ="server" ClientIDMode ="Predictable" />

The default value of ClientIDMode for a page is Predictable. The default value of ClientIDMode for a control is Inherit.

However, if you use Visual Studio to convert a Web project to ASP.NET 4 from an earlier version, Visual Studio automatically sets the site default to AutoID in the Web.config file.

The solution started out as ASP.Net 4, there is no AutoId in the web.config, only the page directive. I tried all the various ClientIDModes at the page directive level, I could see in the Ids in markup were changed as expected, but on my one dev box it was still messing up?  I pretty sure that it has something to do with the client not the site itself, I just can't isolate the issue. Thanks

Solution was to move the no-cache meta tags to the bottom of the page and to turn off IIS7 Static HTTP compression and  turn on dynamic HTTP Compression. Never figured out why the problem was NOT on all IE 11 PCs?

This link explain why move the no-cache meta tags to the bottom makes a difference:
