    I would like to know if anyone has used a program from Webroot.com called:

    ACCELERATE 2K2

    It is supposed to boost your surfing speed and connection by tweaking your settings.

    I know, looking for the magic bullet...

    I use their Window Washer with no problems but hesitate
    to try something that tweaks my settings.

    Any info would be appreciated.

    About the only setting that makes significant difference is the MTU size, there are any number of Internet Tweakers that will adjust that. If you are on a dial-up, you want the smaller 576 MTU, for broadband, you want 1500. There are other settings that make a small amount of difference, but there really isn't a "Silver Bullet", unless it's a cable modem to replace your dial-up. :D
