Hello Frido and welcome to the forum!

Can you be a little more specific about why you think that sites think you have IE5 installed?
That program hasnt been around for a long time. I think Windows 95 used it.
In the beginning there was the command line.

When I log into say my banking site for example It will tell me to upgrade to the latest version of explorer though i have ie8 installed. I may have been wrong to say ie5 detected may be ie6.its just a lot of credit card or any secure site telling me older version of ie detected best to upgrade to newer version though i have.for example bank of america had this to say "You are currently using an unsupported browser.
This application is best viewed using Internet Explorer 6.0. Please visit the links below to upgrade"
