Problems with Internet Explorer 8?
We have had some reports of WebAdvisor not working properly with Internet Explorer 8. You can change IE 8 to run in the “Compatibility Mode” when accessing the NIACC site and this may solve the problems. In IE 8 click on the “Tools” menu then click on “Compatibility Mode Settings” and add niacc.edu to the settings. The next time you go to the NIACC web site Internet Explorer 8 will run in an Internet Explorer 7 emulation mode which may allow you to access WebAdvisor properly.
