IE's great. That's why it's used by 98% of the world's internet surfers.
IE also encounters a lot of problems. Because 98% of the world's internet surfers use it.

Bigger net, catch more fish.


Run disk-cleanup, delete your files and history from within IE, and THEN...go to Tools->Internet Options->General Tab, click on Settings, and adjust your "Temporary Internet Files Folder" to allow more MB of space. I think by default it's 64, which is WAY too low. If your's is low, set it a good bit higher, like 400 or 512. Mine's set to 3400, just because I do webwork on it. You should also verify that there are no files in that folder (see the View Files button below the slider).


Don\'t hate the player...Hate the game...
