This version has been improved slightly. There is now a new Button on
the toolbar: STOP. This works in a "stronger" way than the PAUSE button
- try it and tell me about. It is not perfect - it won't stop threads
where the system tries to find the IP address of the host. The STOP
button only works after the PAUSE button has been pressed.
What you can also do, is to set a smaller timeout value for Internet
Explorer (of which WININET.DLL is a part of, whether you like it or
1. Start the Registry Editor
2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \
CurrentVersion \ InternetSettings
3. Select New > DWORD from the Edit menu
4. Call it ReceiveTimeout with a data value of SECONDS*1000
5. Restart your computer
For example, if you want the timeout to be 1 minute, set the
ReceiveTimeout data value to 60000 (60 * 1000)
The default is 5 minutes.
