    I have this problem with IE 5.5 and hopefully someone can help! Every time a page or frame is done loading that window goes on top automatically, now it may not sound annoying if i only use one window but when i am surfing 5 pages at once and every time another page loads it dissrupts what i am doin. If any one can help it would be GREATLY appreciated!

    Hi,

    The following reg hack is used to prevent applications from stealing focus:

    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop]
    "ForegroundLockTimeout"=hex:98,3a,00,00
    "ForegroundFlashCount"=hex:03,00,00,00


    Copy the bold to Notepad, save as Focus.reg, and doubleclick to import into the Registry.

    See if that corrects the problem.

    Good luck,
