    with the following URL typed in HTTP://www.parade.com it loads
    HTTP://mobile.parade.com. This occurs on 2 of the machines that I work with
    daily, 1 is Vista Home Preimum x86 SP2 and the other is WIN 7 Enterprise. I
    only see this on this one site all other load as expected. I have reset IE8
    and it did not rsolve the problem.

    Hi Earl,

    You have some software installed on your computer that is putting the
    letters 'pda' in your browsers User Agent String.

    A User Agent String is a description of the web browser you are using that
    is sent to the web site you are visiting to allow it to determine what to
    do.

    Some sites incorrectly look for the letters 'pda' in UserAgent strings to
    identify Mobile or Personal Data Assistants (PDA) web browsers.

    Go to http://www.enhanceie.com/ua.aspx to test your brower's UAS. Look for
    the string of 'pda' characters in yours or copy and paste your UAS back here
    and we (may) be able to identify what program has placed it there and how to
    remove it.

    At the bottom of that page you will find instructions on how to repair your
    UserAgent string.

    Regards.

    Creative Update strikes again :)

    A distinct lack of foresight in the browser detection scripts assuming that
    "pda" anywhere in the string means a portable device ;)

    Hi Earl,

    Your UserAgent string is "overly long" (greater than 200 characters in
    length - 280 characters). This may also cause web sites to incorrectly
    identify which web browser you are using.

    at http://www.enhanceie.com/ua.aspx

    It should tell you this and at the bottom of the page there are instructions
    on how to remove unneeded entries from your Registry that may reduce its
    length.

    Your Google toolbar is also out of date... the latest version is 6.5 which
    you can upgrade from toolbar.google.com

    This part BO1IE8_v1;ENUS, is malformed and I could not identify(from a web
    search) what program it is coming from... It looks like an IE BHO (Browser
    Helper Object). Do you know what IE Addon it is for? (Tools>Manage Addons -
    Sort by Type (Browser Helper Objects)). A web search produces a lot of
    results, so it is in common use and possibly could be a cause of a lot of IE
    issues.

    Please Post back if you can identify it, otherwise follow the instructions
    at enhanceie to reduce your IE userAgent length. You may, after fixing your
    UAS have to uninstall some of your IE Addons (this BO1IE8 most probably)
    otherwise these Addons may put their entries back in the registry and
    corrupt your UAS again.

    Sorry for the complexity, but this is something that you have to do on your
    own machine... there is no magic fix.

    Regards.

    Isn't the magic fix to just cut out all that crap from the browser
    string? It does not serve any useful purpose other than advertisement.

    Just use something like:

    Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Win32; Trident/4.0)

    That will work just fine.

    Zune would be my guess...

    UAPick confirms that. (Using the identical UAS without Zune and pressing
    Ctrl-F5 while on the following page.)

    BTW it doesn't look like they often provide support for their site but they
    might be interested in hearing about your symptom nevertheless:

    I have done 2 thing so far I have shortened the User Agent String and
    finally removed Zune 4.0 and here is the resulting User Agent String
    Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.0; Trident/4.0; GTB6.4;
    SLCC1; Media Center PC 5.0; .NET CLR 3.5.21022; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR
    3.0.30729; .NET4.0C)
    and now www.Parade.com loads correctly. Thanks to everyone for their help

    I'm not sure Rob. My assumption is to do so at your own risk. Some of the
    ..net and office tokens may be required at some sites.

    I haven't seen any MS documentation advocating a complete removal of all UAS
    tokens. Even the IE9 PP retains the exogenous tokens.

    FWIW, I have just this and have not had any errors from websites indicating missing
    UA string data. YMMV

    Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; FDM)

    To be safe, just copy/paste your current UA string into Notepad. Then, if needed,
    you can copy/paste back to UA Picker.

    In the interest of tying all of this together, is the bottom line that the
    search in the UAS for forms of pda not entirely correct? If ZUNE is a device
    that works like a pda, then the UAS identifying itself as a pda OR zune
    would have been the correct information.

    I'm not trying to say that the suggestion was wrong, I'm just trying to
    understand that the User Agent String sends information to the server to
    identify the kind of device, cellphone, PDA, whatever, and the content of
    the site is rearranged to suit the device. I think that was the original
    intent, so anytime one is trying to figure out why a mobile site is opened,
    then the UAS should be scanned for a description of any kind of mobile
    device that would make the presentation be changed to fit the device.

    Where would I go to look for my User Agent String?

    Does the User Agent String repair itself, or does the user have to maintain
    it properly? That is, if I were to delete the UAS, would it IE see that it
    is gone and simply gather the appropriate minimum information and make a new
    one?

    I've never played with UAS, as if it wasn't apparent by now ...

    1. Uninstall all third-party toolbars (e.g., Google; Bing).

    2. If you do not (a) access a Hotmail account (b) in Outlook (c) via Outlook
    Connector, remove Outlook Connector & Office Live Add-on from your install
    of Windows Live Essentials.

    3. Now see the section entitled "Problem: Overlong headers result in
    HTTP/4xx or HTTP/5xx errors..." (and the related script to fix it) towards
    the very bottom of this page: http://www.enhanceie.com/ie/troubleshoot.asp

    I'm not sure Rob. My assumption is to do so at your own risk. Some of the
    ..net and office tokens may be required at some sites.

    I haven't seen any MS documentation advocating a complete removal of all UAS
    tokens. Even the IE9 PP retains the exogenous tokens.
