    I am running Win XP Home Ed. with Internet explorer V6. I used to be able to download more than two files at a time. but now I can't. I seemto remember there was a registry adjustment I could make to allow IE6 to download more than two files. Does anyone remember what this registry change is or how I can configure my system to allow more than two downloads at a time.

    downloading files with Explorer is not very convenient, to put it mildest. not only will you have trouble downloading files, you also lose the files once your connection fails and you will have to start all over. if you dial up, this is suicide.

    you could use any download manager to download any number of files at a time, like GetRight, FlashGet, ReGet etc. they are mostly shareware... one is free which i am using, it is NetTransport, download at http://www.xi-soft.com , you get faster speed, download resuming etc etc...
