Internet Explorer

Whenever I sign into to certain websites like "Evite" or other websites, it says my browser is out of date.  But it's not out of date.  It's version 11.0.9600.17633  I can't uninstall and reinstall it and it's as up to date as it can be.  I have automatic updates enabled.  So how do I make this website appear as it should to certain websites?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It's not that IE is out of date, just that those sites are using:
1.  Code that IE cannot (or will not) translate/understand.
2.  Stylesheets that IE cannot (or will not) translate/understand.

You either have to use a "modern" browser; e.g. - Firefox, Chrome, etc...; or you can try to use the Compatibility View in IE.

I have put the sites in compatibility mode but it has not helped.  I do not have this problem on any other computer I have.  Unfortunately, I cannot use the other browsers for certain sites because I am at a University and many sites are only accessible through explorer.

HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals

Build a website from the ground up by first learning the fundamentals of HTML5 and CSS3, the two popular programming languages used to present content online. HTML deals with fonts, colors, graphics, and hyperlinks, while CSS describes how HTML elements are to be displayed.

Thank you. I did that.  I am still getting the message that my browser it outdated. . Seems to me there has to be a solution for this. I can't be the only person who has had this problem.

Have you tried deleting your browsing history?Capture.JPGAfter doing this, remove the sites from your Compatibility Settings, close IE, reopen IE and try to access them again.

I have done that numerous times. It didn't help.  Is there some way to uninstall and reinstall IE?

Windows 7 Pro.  Today I got an email from Evites saying this is a known problem with business networks and I should only use it when I am not at work.
