But, if you want to disable it, you can change it by doing the following. Note, this is not available in Windows XP Home Edition.

No loss. That tweak does not do what it is claimed to do anyway. It's been argued back and forth on any number of sites, but bottom line is that QoS does NOT reduce available bandwidth.

jbravo,

What other forums do you subscribe to? I have been looking for a forum that discusses spam and how to reduce it on a company wide basis.

I'm always interested in the forums other people subscribe to. Me: maximum-suzuki.com, forums.techguy.org, 2wm.org, and bleepingcomputer

Even if the info you posted doesn't work as advertised, I still appreciate the link. This is my kind of reading material :thumbsup:

That and Thor Heyerdahl.
