    x-no-archive: yes

    using dialup with w/98 and IE 5.50.... i often have to disconnect and redial,
    as downloads (internet, and newsgroups, via outlook express) seem to stall-
    anything i may have overlooked?

    i clear out temp files, pause scheduler and other non essential progs, on
    each start up....

    It is usual for ISP's on (anytime) dial-up account to disconnect you after 2
    hours !
