    Yet another "pages won't load" thread

    I read through that thread, but I haven't tried the fix yet. Is it common for an ISP to suddenly change MTU settings for no reason? I have been with Time Warner for years and never had a problem. Also, I would assume that my desktop would also have issues if Time Warner changed MTU...

    Do not display icon associated with file

    OK... I'll see if it changing it to the generic icon works. The problem is a slow network folder with a ton of files in it that is VERY slow to respond while XP refreshes the icons from the generic icon to the icon of the associated program.

    Did Windows Update Kill The P2P Star?

    Roadrunner here also. Download speeds are usually very high, but uploads are terrible. I also just downloaded a batch of 12 MS updates tonight. I notice that with, every consecutive test I run, regardless of if it's an upload or download test, returns slower and slower results...
