After January 12th, 2016 Microsoft will discontinue support for all older versions of Internet Explorer.

Microsoft will not provide updates, security patches, compatibility fixes or any other support for versions older than Internet Explorer 11.

To avoid security breaches or browser issues, please do the following;

Verify your version of Internet Explorer by opening Internet Explorer and select Help => from the menu bar and select About Internet Explorer.

You should see a dialogue box similar to the one below.

If the dialogue box shows version 11.0 or higher you are up to date and do not need to continue.

However, we do recommend that you select the box Install new versions automatically (version number displayed may vary slightly but should represent version 11.0 or above).

If the dialogue box shows a version older than Internet Explorer 11, go to the link below and upgrade to Internet Explorer version 11.
