Fixing the Pesky 2 Downloads at a Time Limit in IE7

IE-Logo Have you ever noticed that with IE7 you can only download 2 files from any given domain at any given time?  It's actually slightly worse than that, you may only have 2 connections total, including a connection to request web pages.  That means if you are downloading two things from a single domain you are unable to browse!  Much to my angst this is actually a W3 standard! 


Basically it's a quick registry fix.  If you are comfortable making changes to your registry this will be really quick!

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

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