  1. Open Internet Explorer or Netscape.
  2. Click on Help in the top tool bar.
  3. Select About Internet Explorer or About Netscape Navigator.
  4. This will then display what version you are using.

Poor connection solutions

If you have a poor connection to the Internet via your Internet service provider, you can sometimes have difficulties connecting to the site. This would result in slowness loading the page, or time out errors as shown at the top of this page.

Please contact your internet service provider for assistance

Identifying proxy server problems

Sometimes Internet providers, who use proxy servers, can cause difficulties when connecting to particular sites. This generally occurs when the content that they store on the proxy server has expired or been overwritten with the wrong data. Secondly, if their proxy server does not support Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), this can cause difficulties. To resolve this problem you will need to contact your Internet service provider and ask them if they support SSL or are having any difficulties with their proxy server. In some cases they may need to refresh their content in order to display the page correctly.
