When I try to get to target.com using IE11 on Windows 7, I get a screen that says, "it's time to upgrade your browser." That screen gives me links to download Chrome, Firefox, and Safari, but won't let me access the Target website. It I use Firefox, I get right into the Target site. I haven't had this issue anywhere else (beside Target.com). I haven't found any solution online to this issue. Can anybody help?

OK, got it now. Thanks to those who pointed out that my minor version was outdated. I had to disable IE in Windows Features, then reboot, then downloaded (using Firefox) IE 11 from the MS download site, then installed IE 11 again, then rebooted again, then enabled IE in Windows Features, then rebooted again, and voila! I have the right version and can access Target again. Still don't know why Windows Update wouldn't give me the IE updates. Whew!

You are running a way old version of IE11.

Your screen shot shows "version: 11.0.9600.18499

The current version is "version: 11.321.14393.0"

Make sure you have installed every single patch/update from Windows Update.

OK, thanks. But I can't seem to find a way to update IE. The box that says to "Install new versions automatically" is checked. But it doesn't update. Windows Update doesn't find any new updates. I uninstalled and reinstalled IE 11, but I still show 11.0.9600.18499. Any ideas on what else to try?

Thanks for any help you can provide.
