Any time I try to load a page in IE - whether on my hard drive or on the web, my entire system bogs right down. Even just moving my mouse pointer across the screen takes forever, because it will only move about an eighth of an inch at a time. This happens even when I set IE not to automatically load images.
I'm nearly positive that the problem lies with IE, but in case it's with Win98, I'm posting here.
When I checked IE's settings, I discovered that the amount of disk space set aside for temp. internet files is at 0%, and no matter how many times I change it, it goes back to 0.
I took a look through the registry to see if changing the amount of space allocated for tifs could be changed easily and I think I found the right key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main ----->
the value right now is: "0a 00 00 00", which I'm assuming is the binary equivalent of 0%.
The problem is that I don't know how to write a binary "code" (or whatever it's called) that corresponds to anything. It really doesn't matter to me how much space is set aside since I empty my temp folders on a regular basis, but I do need someone to tell me how to change that 0% - whether thru the registry or not.
I've got a Pentium 133, 32 megs RAM, 4.3 gig h/d partitioned in half, 420 meg h/d, Cirrus Logic 5446 PCI/2 meg video card. SP1 for IE4 is installed.
Thanks in advance,
