We recommend, if you use Internet Explorer 11 to access the system, that you make the following changes to your browser configuration. This will ensure that you get the best possible user experience from the system.

If you have Google and/or Yahoo toolbars installed you will need to disable the pop-up blocker settings.   Also, note that other internet browsers such as Firefox, Safari and Chrome are not yet fully supported.

If you have Windows 10 operating system you will need to use Internet Explorer 11. Please follow the details on the below site to find Internet Explorer 11 on your Windows 10 PC and open it

The following sections will guide you, step by step through the changes in browser settings.
