    Hi bluzeboy,

    I found this for you, not sure if you've tried it but here goes

    Remember to back up your registry


    FOR FASTER WEB PAGE LOADING:

    This tweak will help web pages load faster, it has no real effect on download speeds, just helps your pc look up websites faster thereby speeding up how fast the page loads and making websurfing more enjoyable.

    Navigate to this registry entry and change the following settings:

    For XP & 2K

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic
    es\Tcpip\ServiceProvider



    On the right for ALL OS's change these entries: (ALL values are HEXIDECIMAL)

    Class = 1
    DnsPriority = 1
    HostsPriority = 1
    LocalPriority = 1
    NetbtPriority = 1

    To change the value right mouse click on the value and select modify and enter the values above once you have done all of them reboot to take effect and see how fast your pages load.

    Thanks to mnosteele

    Hope this helps you

    Alan
