    I am wondering if anyone knows how to turn off the drop window that drop downs when:

    If you search on yahoo mark, bark, mets, baseball, bat
    And you go again to search for best as your typing and type in "B" a drop down window/box will drop down and shope bark, baseball and bast since you recently searched those...

    if you're using ie6

    tools
    internet options
    content
    autocomplete
    click the "clear forms" button, or turn it off.


    sounds like someone went on some naughty websites, and doesn't want his parents to know

    i speak from experience, many years ago when autocomplete was first released, i would go out searching yahoo for free porn, with descriptive terms that would make larry flint blush. Then, an hour before the parents were scheduled to be home, i was freaking out trying to figure out how to clear that information. At the time there was no option to clear that data, so the only thing i could do was to format the system and reinstall windows.

    Of course, later i learned to use less popular search engines that i knew my parents would never visit, then before they would get home, i would just modify the history to not include records of me going to those websites .

    no

    No its not because of sites I visit, its just I dont like the auto complete unless its for passwords and usernames.


    Its weird, this is my computer no one else uses it. I am the admin and only account on this computer and Im using Windows XP Home Edition. I cant access the IE options thru the browser, it says "this option had been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact the system adminstrator."
    -- but I am the adminstrator....

    I can access the options by right clicking the IE icon on the desktop tho, anyone have this problem b4?
