Internet Explorer does not allow more than two simultaneous download sessions. This is to comply with certain Internet standards that prohibit multiple file downloads at a time. This can however be changed by making changes in the registry.Make sure that you follow these steps closely and only in a manner as described below since certain changes to the registry can be risky. Do make sure that you read the footnote at the end of this tip.

extend Type in “regedit” and click “OK”.
extend In the registry, navigate to “HKEY_CURRENT_USER|Software|Microsoft|Windows| CurrentVersion|InternetSettings”.

Click “Edit | New|DWORD
Value” and name it as “MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server”
extend Double-click on the newly created Value and enter the Value Data as “10” and Base value as “Decimal”.
extend Again, click “Edit | New| DWORD Value” to create another Value and name it as“MaxConnectionsPerServer”
extend Double-click on the newly created Value and enter the Value Data as “10” and Base value as “Decimal”.
extend Close the Registry Editor.
