hi guys
is there any way to set your internet explorer in xp so it will automatically refresh every say 5 mins?

thanks

No, not that I am aware of.

But if anyone knows a way of doing it I would be interested too!

If you're specifically talking about PCA pages, why not have a 'chat' with the FE to see if an auto-refresh can be installed?

so if there was a program to simulate F5 being pressed at intervals ...

I use Avant Browser whch is an add on for IE, with Avant you can set web pages to refresh from every 10 seconds to 15 minutes. I find Avant work is better to use rather than IE

I use Hotmail as well, with Incredimail click here in which one can set it to give a variety of audible warnings on receipt of an email(s) and a setting to check for emails at whatever interval of time you wish.

...to help you. My Hotmail tells me as new mail arrives. Also when some contact signs in. I'm using Windows LIVE! Hotmail but have never tried to find the setting for this - must be there somewhere!

thanks Technotiger i will look at that

martjc i must admit i never thought of that. i will check it out when i get 5 mins.

If you are using the latest version of messenger click tools>>> options>>>> Alerts and sounds>>>> tick the box for 'Display alerts when e-mail is received' You will then get a pop-up box telling you when you receive a e-mail from Hotmail.
