Tweaks to Speed up Browsing (Latest)

I am pretty sure you will enjoy browsing when you apply these tweaks.

Please be extra careful because it is the registry that you will alter. I assume that you are already familiar with the registry and knows how to change its values.

The tweaks were tested on Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Service Pack 3 RC 1 & RC2.

1) This tweak will speed up page loading:

Go to:


On the right, change the default to the following decimal entries. Double-click to do it:

Class = REG_DWORD 0x00000001 (1)
DnsPriority = REG_DWORD 0x00000001 (1)
HostsPriority = REG_DWORD 0x00000001 (1)
LocalPriority = REG_DWORD 0x00000001 (1)
NetbtPriority = REG_DWORD 0x00000001 (1)

2) This will increase your Receive Window (RWin) and Send Window (SWin):

Go to:


DefaultReceiveWindow = 937500
DefaultSendWindow = 937500

Just in case these parameters are not there yet, you can create them by right clicking then select New\DWORD Value.

There you go. Restart PC and enjoy faster browsing.
