Microsoft Terminates Support Of Old Versions Of IE!!! 

Finally! Thankfully! As of Jan 12, 2016; old versions of IE are no longer supported.

Be absolutely certain you are not using IE 8, 9 or 10, (with just a few exceptions). Using any of these outdated versions is a serious security risk and many sites will not work properly with anything other than new browsers. Read More.

Also, the Microsoft Operating Systems: Windows XP and Windows 8 are no longer supported. You will also want to be aware that Windows 7 Mainstream support ended Jan 13, 2015; although security updates will continue until Jan 14, 2020. By that time, you will need to upgrade to a current Windows OS.

The best practice is to upgrade your Windows PC to Windows 10 or at a minimum update your browser to IE 11 or Edge.

This is a most welcome step by Microsoft in its apparent and crucial strategy to bring its browsers up to the level of performance of its competitors, Safari, Firefox and Chrome, all of which are automatically updated and therefore supported every time they are opened. That enables safe browsing and good, up to date performance by the browsers.
