    You mean auto complete on forms? You can highlight a single entry, and press Delete to remove it.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    First of all, your version should look like the below.
    Second of all, download spybot S&D if you update and it still won't wipe it out. Spybot gets rid of EVERYTHING.

    wow, that just doesn't seem right, SnD wipes out stream history from widows explorer for gods sake...do you have full admin powers on that machine??

    My next suggestion would be to go to add remove programs, then windows components, then IE. Then reinstall it by going back in and adding it so it installs (you'll need the xp cd). That'll do the trick.

    in light of the mozilla :: opera thread i said f*** IE and got phoenix.....then i deleted as much of the IE stuff as i could

    i have a program called eraser, it erases everything by overrighting it w/junk 35 times.....5 times more than the nsa says you should, AMAZINGLY, after i did this to the internet explorer folder, the folder doesnt go away

    i HATE microsoft internet explorer

    Some may say that is GOOD, that you cant erase something important like IE.

    And, remember lots of ppl use IE (like me) and have no trouble-it is how YOU use it and what YOU do to it that causes trouble.

    Such is life.

    What he means is some people, like pc repair men or the common user, would think an anti-remove feature on IE is a good idea as explorer and internet explorer are tied into windows pretty deep, and removal of one or the other, or both, could cause problems if removed un-intentionally.

    If all else failes, last resort, try "reg restore" from dos, depending on the OS. Only problem, is, you may lose some functions, or use of certian programs installed after the last registry date.
    The keyboard is the standard device used to cause computer errors!
