    It seems to be caused by the "top" and "left" declarations in the ".nivoSlider img" rule.

    It sounds like IE might be using an older rendering mode. Open the developer tools in IE (one way is by pressing the F12 key) and check which "Browser Mode" and "Document Mode" are set to. Make sure that they are set to the newest one available.
