Hack for IE Windows Version ID?

When I try to stream live races from, it fails on the requirements for OS via IE. It says "windows 6.1" not ok. Is there a way to change the registry or some value so it thinks it's a older version?

Only thing I can think of is to (temporarily) set compatibility mode for your browser to one of the vista ones and see if that fools the site to think the OS is 6.0 (vista).

Anyone know the registry tweak to adjust the delay when windows close? They look fine popping up but when I click the close button, there's like a jitter during the hesitation, then they close. Really annoying.
