Speed up Internet Explorer

A Registry Tweak to speed up IE

The success of this particular Registry Tweak depends mostly on your current Internet connection.

The success of this particular Registry Tweak depends mostly on your current Internet connection, but this tip is an excellent example of putting the registry to work for you. I am on Cable and saw a slight improvement.

NOTE: Making changes to the registry can cause serious harm to your computer if done incorrectly. Always backup your registry before making any changes.

This article shows how to increase the number of streams that your browser can draw from. Since Internet Explorer complies with HyperText Protocol v1.1, browsers usually only draw two streams or less from a Web server.We are going to increase that from two streams to six. This should enable you to browse much faster. To begin:

  1. Click Start - Run.
  2. Type "regedit" and click OK.
  3. In the left pane navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings
  4. In the right pane you should see the contents of Internet Settings.
  5. Check Regedit's right-hand column for the following two lines (values): MaxConnectionsPerServer MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server
  6. If these values are present, right-click on the first value (MaxConnectionsPerServer), select Modify from the drop-down menu, click Decimal, and set the Value data field to 6. Repeat this process for the second value (MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server).
  7. If these lines (values) are not listed, right-click on the white region of Regedit's right-hand column, click New, and then click DWORD Value.
  8. Enter MaxConnectionsPerServer for the name of the new DWORD Value and press Enter. The new value should now appear in Regedit's right-hand column.
  9. Right-click the new value and click Modify.
  10. As in step six, click Decimal and set the Value Data field to 6, then click OK.
  11. Repeat steps seven through 10 using MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server as the new DWORD Value name instead of MaxConnectionsPerServer.
  12. Close Regedit and test Internet Explorer.

How to Increase Your Internet Browsing Speed

Internet performance can be slowed due to files stored on your computer without you even realizing it. Files are dumped on your hard drive every time you visit a Web site. Spyware and Adware can also cripple your computer. The steps below will help you increase your browser speed.

  1. Install and frequently scan your computer with a good Spyware removal program. This will keep these troublesome programs off of your computer.
  2. Scan your computer with a good Adware removal program. This is in addition to the Spyware program. Removing all the Spyware and Adware can do wonders for computer productivity.
  3. Empty your Internet files on a set schedule (usually every 7 days). This will keep the computer from getting bogged down with millions of files to scan through.
  4. Click “Tools” in Internet Explorer, then “Internet Options.” Click the “Delete Cookies” button. This will dump cookie files left on your PC by Web sites you have visited.
  5. Clear the history on your computer. This clears the folder that saves every Internet address you go to.
  6. Enter "0" in the box that decides how many days Internet Explorer should save your web history, then click “Apply” and “OK.” This will keep these files from building up and slowing your PC. You can enter as many days as you want. "0" will immediately remove Internet sites from your history after you view them.

For those who use Windows XP Professional then it is possible to squeeze an extra 20% out of your internet connection. By default Windows XP Pro holds back 20% of your Internet speed for various services like windows update and spyware checks.

If you want to tap into this locked speed then make the following changes:

· Expand the Administrative Templates branch
· Expand the Network tab
· Highlight QoS Packet Scheduler
· Click on Limit Reservable Bandwidth and check the ‘enabled’ box
· Then Change the Bandwidth limit % to 0 %

Once you’ve done this click apply and restart your PC. After rebooting you should see a noticeable improvement in your net speed.
