Title: Change IE timeout settings
Post by: Rennhack on Jul 29, 2007, 12:27
Although Microsoft does not encourage this approach, you can change the default time-out setting for Internet Explorer. To do this in Internet Explorer 4.01 Service Pack 1 or later, follow these steps:

1. Add a ReceiveTimeout DWORD value with a data value of (<number of seconds>)*1000 in the following registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

For example, if you want the timeout duration to be 8 minutes, set the ReceiveTimeout data value to 480000 (<480>*1000).

2. Restart your computer.
