    Help...
    I want to follow this procedure that i got from the "tweak" section but i'm a little bit confused. pls. help...

    -- tweak procedure --

    Allow more than 2 simultaneous downloads in IE 6 TOP
    This is to increase the the number of max downloads to 10.

    1. Start Registry Editor

    2. Locate the following key in the registry:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/InternetSettings

    3. On the Edit menu, click Add Value , and then add the following registry values:

    >>> when i clicked on Edit Menu I got these options :

    I didn't see any Add Value but at New I have a choice :

    Key
    String Value
    Binary Value
    DWORD Value
    Multi-String Value
    Expandable String Value

    >>What should I choose and how exactly to "add it"


    "MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server"=Dword:0000000a
    "MaxConnectionsPerServer"=Dword:0000000a

    4. Quit Registry Editor.
    Reboot

    and in the value section for MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server write : Dword:0000000a

    and in the value section for MaxConnectionsPerServer write : Dword:0000000a

    It might be just me but I have always been able to download more than two files simultaneously. I have XP Pro. It just makes me wonder what this tweak is actually for? XP Home maybe?:confused:

    tweak IE

    i was just downloading 3 or more files at the same time using "save target as" and i noticed that you can only download 2 files at a time.

    Any version of IE will only download max of 2 files from any single server. If you were able to download 3 or 4 then you are going from more than one server.

    The tweak is for "just about" all versions of IE, def for 5+

    someone posted a .reg file that all you had to do was double click it and boom! you had 10 downloads per server. Forgot where it is though. Might wanna find it and post it here

    The point was for a tweak, not a program to do it for you. Plus, I hate download managers
