    Have you emptied all old temp files and old cookies and stuff?

    call your ISP and ask them - It sounds like the delay times are off, it could be there end.

    I have the exact same problem with IE + NTFS.org + 56k modem. However, Firebirs works fine. Cleaning out temp files continuously is annoying - I switched browsers.

    Thats why in the tools /options you can have it delete the temp files on exit :)

    I have that enabled but it doesn't solve the problem. Problem occurs during the session hence the continual manual emptying before exiting.

    Somewhere in the IE menus is an option to use page info from memory or update it on every visit.

    They recommend setting it to use from memory for 56k connections. Find that setting and change it to update on every visit. I'll go looking for it again. They seem to have moved it...

    Tools-internet options-general-(temp internet files section)-settings check the top box.

    That'll slow things down for 56kers. I'd rather set it to never update then press the refresh button when needed.

    You could try the ultimate IE fix. Open the command prompt, and type each of these in one at a time. Press <Enter> after each entry.

    regsvr32
    urlmon.dll
    actxprxy.dll
    shdocvw.dll
    msjava.dll
    oleaut32.dll
    mshtml.dll
    browseui.dll
    shell32.dll

    This fixes various IE problems. It is included in Microsoft's Knowledge Base... articles 281679 and 326815. Read one of those articles for further explanation. :)
