    :eek: I am using IE ver6.. with windowsME. I can sign into the internet and browse without any problems, but when I disconnect from the internet, the browser won't close right away.
    If I am online for a short time (10-15 minutes) it will close right away, withing a minute or so. If I am online for a long time, say about an hour or so, when I click the X to close the connection, it will disconnect the modem, but the browser remains on my screen for
    several minutes, then closes. It seems that the computer is storing something to disk
    or cleaning out something before it closes. The longer I am online, the longer it takes
    for the browser to close and get back to my desktop.
    I was wondering if anyone else has or has had this problem, and what is the fix for it??
    It gets to be quite frustrating to sit and wait for the browser to clear the screen, meanwhile I can't use the computer for anything else.
    Thank You.

    Hi try..in IE>tools>internet options>advanced tab.
    Scroll down to..empty temporary internet folder when browser when browser is closed.
    Tick box..apply>ok.
    Under General tab...Clearing out temp..cookie files also will help.
