Among other things, they recompress the images, and\or, change the file type. This is what gives the apparent
acceleration when surfing. It is normal to get blurry images, and can usually be adjusted in the Accelerator program, as to how much acceleration you want.
If you uninstalled it, and changed ISPs, then maybe your compressed images are still in your browser cache. Try clearing that.
Recently, after installing and testing the accelerated dialup connector of ISP AllVantage.com, all images became very blurred and sloppy as I tried the 5x acceleration.
This made me decide to go back to my other dialup ISP of 650Dialup.com. But, although I uninstalled AllVantage and removed its connection (from Internet Options), and set 650 again as my default connection, I'm still getting the same rotten resolution on almost every image.
How can I fix this? I've tried going to the Add/Remove window and using it to do an IE6 repair, but still no success.
Is there any way I can reinstall IE6 and/or return it to default settings? I have Win2K on a CD.
