Launching QuickNet Web Accelerator
QuickNet Web Accelerator launches automatically each time you start Windows. It operates in the background to accelerate your Internet connection. No user intervention is required.
If QuickNet Web Accelerator is not running and you need to launch it manually, an icon titled "QuickNet Web Accelerator" is located in the Windows Start Menu under the QuickNet folder (as shown below).
If QuickNet Web Accelerator is running, the QuickNet taskbar icon will appear in the Windows system tray
Accessing the User Interface
Once launched, QuickNet Web Accelerator icon will remain in the system tray (as shown below).
In general, there will be no need to change settings during web browsing. You can use the user interface to change settings, view connection status or acceleration statistics. To access the user interface features, click on the QuickNet Web Accelerator icon in the system tray (shown above). A pop-up menu will appear (shown below), providing access to all the features of the product. Selecting and single-clicking any of the menu items will access that particular feature.
Setting Username and Password Information
Your username and password information is located in the Connection Status dialog. To set your username and password:
Changing the Image Quality Setting
The image quality setting changes the quality of images that appear in your QuickNet Web Accelerator. The higher the quality you select, the longer it will take the image to load. For slower Internet connections, it is recommended that you lower your image quality. This slider can be adjusted anytime while browsing.
You can easily obtain full image quality for a particular image (described below), so don't be overly conservative about lowering your image quality setting.
Getting Full Image Quality
Note: The following information applies only when browsing with Internet Explorer.
While browsing, if you would like to request the full quality image, simply right-click on the desired image from within Internet Explorer and select "Show Original Image" from the menu (shown below).
The full quality image will appear in place of the lower quality image.
If you want to see the full quality version of all images on the current page, simply right-click on any image from within Internet Explorer and select "Show All Original Images" from the menu (shown below).
Changing the Pop-Up Blocker Settings
QuickNet Web Accelerator can prevent pop-up windows and floating flash advertisements from appearing while you browse the Internet. This behavior is enabled by default, and no user-intervention is required. However, you can disable these features at any time.
A limited number of web sites require pop-ups to function correctly. QuickNet Web Accelerator allows you to specify a "White List" of sites where pop-ups will not be blocked.
You can also see a list of all pop-ups that were blocked. This information is useful if you suspect a web site is not functioning properly because pop-ups are being blocked.

Blocking In-Page Advertisements
QuickNet Web Accelerator can block many graphical advertisements that appear on various web pages (i.e. ad banners). Enabling this feature will prevent these ads from being downloaded and displayed in your browser. The Block In-Page Advertisements feature will thus reduce download time.

For example, a savings ratio of 4.00 means that the actual data being sent has been compressed to 1/4 the size of the original data.
