Cannot view de Souza Institute website or links using old Internet Explorer / Unsupported Browser

A Browser is a program used to look at Internet websites.

Microsoft no longer supports out of date versions of the Internet Explorer browser (version 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10) as of January 2016. de Souza Institute’s websites and courses, as well as Cancer Chat Canada, do not work with outdated versions of the Internet Explorer browser.

Additionally, to keep you secure we do not support using outdated browsers that could potentially expose your information, such as those on Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) or earlier.

If you clicked a link to get here, please copy it and paste it into a newer browser or update your computer software using Windows Update / Software Update.

You can also try download a newer browser, for free, from the ones listed below. These newer browsers work just like Internet Explorer or Safari but keep themselves up to date and support new features including enhanced security.


To download a newer browser:
Click a browser below to reach the browser’s download page:

What to do after downloading:
After downloading one of the browsers above, you must open the downloaded file and follow the onscreen instructions to install the browser. After you install the new browser, you must use the new browser to view our courses and websites.

Click on the Icon to Open the New Browser

You can do so by clicking on the icon for it from your desktop or start menu, going to the new browser’s address bar, located at the top of the window and typing in http://my.desouzainstitute.com. If you were trying to get to another de Souza Institute website such as https://cancerchat.desouzainstitute.com or clicking a link in an email, please copy and paste the link into the new browser's address bar instead.

Additional Tips

  1. If you are using a work computer with an unsupported Internet Explorer Browser, you may ask your IT department for a browser upgrade or for Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
  2. If you are unsure if your browser is up to date and secure, you can visit https://www.howsmyssl.com/ to test it. If it says "Your SSL Client is Bad.", please update to keep yourself protected.
  3. If you are using Internet Explorer 11, make sure to disable Internet Explorer’s ‘Compatibility View’.
    If the ‘Compatibility View’ button (pictured below) in the address bar is blue, click it to disable ‘Compatibility View’.
