Solution: Internet Explorer detected as mobile device

IE LogoProblem description:
"Internet Explorer redirects to mobile layout web site"
"Some websites are connecting to mobile version"
Why am I getting mobile sites? I'm using my desktop PC!
Solution: (as found in this thread)
  1. In the Windows registry navigate to the following key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\5.0\User Agent\Post Platform
  2. Remove the entry "Creative AutoUpdate v1.40.01"
  3. Close all Internet Explorer windows.
Some websites are scanning the user agent string for the word "PDA", unfortunately the word "Update", contains PDA. Thus, those websites present their mobile versions instead.
