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.
