Why do websites keep saying I'm in IE6? Freezing.

    Every time I try to log in, it says "We're sorry, but Internet Explorer 6 is
    no longer supported.
    Click any browser name from our Systems Requirements page to download a
    supported browser."

    The annoying thing is, is that I've downloaded IE8, gotten this error,
    installed Firefox, deleted IE8, then reinstalled IE8 through Firefox, and I

    Why am I not asking the website for support? Because I already have, and
    they have suggested a million different things for me to try (which I have
    followed all their instructions). Since I seem to have drained their
    resources, I'm thinking it's more a problem with the browser than the website.

    Also, IE seems to enjoy freezing lately.

    Anyone know what's wrong or what I should do?

  2. Click Help>About in your browser and see what it thinks is running.

    You may have DOWNLOADED the new browser, but did you INSTALL it?

    What does it say is your web browser and its version?


    What does that one say is your user-agent string (what the web browser
    reports to identify itself)?
    Often caused by retaining old incompatible add-ons when upgrading the web
    browser or installing new add-ons that aren't fully compatible.
