After turning compatibility mode off from all sites and setting it back to standard
settings i end up getting this result:

Quote:

User agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.1;
Trident/4.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; Media Center PC 6.0;
.NET4.0C; Tablet PC 2.0)
So i guess its not wise to have compatibility mode on all web sites then?

many thanks for your help on this. reputation tap for you
