Make Internet Explorer go faster

Ok everyone, first things first. Credit to the original person who wrote this at: ... ke-it.html

And now to the fun part.
Here is how to make internet explorer go a lot faster then it currently does. This especially helps if you use multiple tabs instead of multiple browser windows.
This hack works on ie5, ie6, and ie7. It works on 2000, xp, and vista (maybe older too, idk)
This really does work, almost all my web pages load about 10 times faster now.... all of them are less then 1 minute! (Just kidding... I mean 1 second)
What it does, is it sets IE to use 16 connections instead of 4. This isnt enabled by default, because "If everyone who uses IE would use 16 connections it would slow down the internet"

I would post the file you need to download, but i cant post .reg files. So, save the text at the bottom as a .reg file using notepad; Then run it. Please remember that adding anything into the registry can be dangerous, so please be careful, and check the file over before running it to make sure you are ok with what its doing.
I am not responsible if you run this wrong, and screw up your registry... idk how anyone could be dumb enough to, but what ever....
