Operating System Version:Windows XP Pro
Problem Application Name & Version:Internet Explorer (latest version)
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:

The Internet Explorer on my computer used to automatically disconnect me from the internet every 10 hours. Now it's disconnecting me every 6 hours. I haven't changed any settings at all on my system. Why is it suddenly kicking me off after a shorter time now? Is there any way I can fix this so it lets me stay on longer or doesn't kick me at all? Or would it even be possible to just uninstall IE from my computer and not be kicked by it at all? I use MSN so don't know if the two are tied into each other. I'm just tired of having to log off and restart my internet all the time. Or be in the middle of something important and suddenly be kicked offline.

Open internet explorer, and go to internet options at the tools menu. In the connections folder, click settings. Click the settings button to the right for your username you see.
Go to the dial-up tab and unmark the two boxes for:
activate disconnection at inactivity and
disconnect when connection no longer needed.

Restart your computer.

Hope it works! ;-)
