Registry Editing Tips

Lengthen Cache Expiry Period

It is sometimes very annoying that the cache expires too soon and your channel icons, image, and default homepage isn't properly cached. Don't worry, we have a solution.

Open up the registry editor and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Cache. On ther right pane just change the value of CleanupInterval and FreshnessInterval (value is in seconds, LSB first) into the required period you want.

The recommended is seven days (value=80 3A 09 00). This will cure your problems. Don't set it too big or you will find that your Internet cache grows with it. However, if you can afford the disk space, a larger cache means faster browsing.
