Frequent Timeouts with IE8

Hi,
I just purchased a new ASUS desktop with Windows 7 and IE8.  I run the 32 bit version of IE8 almost exclusively.  I frequently run into a timeout problem on many sites after what seems to be a short period of time.  I'll try Firefox and have no problem.

I looked at my registry under Internet settings and there is a "ReceiveTimout" value of 10,000 (millisec?).  Is this the problem?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
hefterr

I deleted all Temp internet files, and set the max cache to 8 MB. This solved it for us.

Hi,
>>Do you have any "internet security software " or firewall enabled?
I do not not have any Internet Security software.  I do have the Windowsfirewall enabled but that has never been an issue in previous releases.

>>and set the max cache to 8 MB.
Q:  How do you set this?

You could use CCleaner to clean the system of any temporary files and junk files

Also try DelDomain.inf
