I'm not using Internet Explorer 7... Desuchan 5/9/12 5:33 PM
I would have used the "report a bug" link for this, but it's gone now.

I'm using Internet Explorer 9, specificially version 9.0.8112.16421 and just recently started getting the following message:

"You are using Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 web browser. YouTube is ending support for Internet Explorer 7 soon, update your browser now."

Any idea what's going on?

You've tried the simple stuff already, right?

-Clear cookies
-Restart browser
-Restart computer
-Scan your computer for updates and virus'

If the real simple stuff doesn't work, try redownloading Internet Explorer 9. Just say yes if it asks you to overwrite the same files. Sometimes when you update things you can get bad cookies that mess it up.

Browsers can be modified to "report" anything, any version, even different browsers. A common setting that changes what the browser reports is "Compatibility Mode." If your browser is set to compatibilty mode it will report that it is an older version so websites that modify content based on what browser they see can provide older-style content. There should be no reason you need to use compatibility mode with YouTube on a permanent basis, turn it off.

Turn off Compatibility View -- see the video here: How to use Compatibility View in IE9 - Microsoft Help - click here.
 
Bascially, click the torn-page icon in the address bar to turn it from a solid color (on), to grey (off).

Strange, I think Youtube's coding doesn't know much about Internet Explorer 9, but knows about those using IE8.
