Overlib.js not working in Internet Explorer 10 (IE 10)

The overlib.js fail to work in IE 10. The error that is usually thrown in the console is "SCRIPT5007: Unable to get property '1' of undefined or null reference "
I investigated and found that the code simply considers the browser version to be only 1 digit. So, when we use IE 10, this does not match.
There is a simple solution though.

Select multiple items in Windows Explorer (files and folders) without using ctrl key

Selecting multiple items using touch pad often makes us to repeat the same procedure from the beginning when we inadverently click outside the selection which deselects all the previously selected items. It is more difficult when you have a large number of items and you need to scroll the page which most probably deselects the items.

In Windows 7, you have a provision to display checkboxes to all the items such that you can use to select individual items.
