Problem: Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 7 Professional renders a bootstrap website with form controls in the wrong place and the layout is corrupt

Cause: Internet Explorer 11 has been configured to display legacy banking website with ancient IE8 settings

Resolution: Install a meta tag in the <head></head> section of the web page.

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" />

For cake PHP you can generate one with the HtmlHelper thusly:

            'http-equiv' => 'X-UA-Compatible',
            'content' => "IE=edge"
