You can't count page hits with a browser.
That's done by the server.....

Let me make this clear.

In IE4 go to "Internet Options" in the View menu. Select the "Advanced" tab. There is an option in there to "Enable page hit counting". I _know_ that the hits must get counted by the server, but I want to know how to utilise the option in the IE4 menu.

Ok, let's try again.
RIGHT hand click that option and select "What's This".
It's for "content providers"

Quote from a page on the net :
MS IE-4.0 allows servers to determine the URLs you view at their site even if accessed from cache or through a proxy. To disable this, try: View, Internet Options, Advanced, clear the check-box beside Enable page hit counting. Or get another browser.

This is for servers and is probably tracked via .asp's
