That looks like autocomplete. And you went into Tools, Internet Options, Content, Autocomplete, and cleared Forms?

Also delete Cookies and Internet Files. Then clear the MRU file list by right clicking the Start button, Properties, Start Menu tab, Customize, Advanced, Clear List.

Reboot your computer. Go back to Internet Explorer. I just did all these steps, and when I went back to IE and types in hot (for hotmail), clicked the down arrow, I had absolutely nothing in the list.

Did that help?

Yes, I guess I'll try again. I DID do this.

Then be sure to clear the other stuff I mentioned, reboot, and open IE again.

I should mention, all those are actual files. Even stuff. That's a folder.

Here's another link that gives some addtional suggestions, including a registry edit, to clear autocomplete when the normal techniques don't work. Please review all the suggestions. Did any of them help? If so, which one?

I need to clarify something. When I went through the steps in Post #18, rebooted, then opened IE and typed in "P", I got a list of internet links from my Favorites and files from my Desktop that started with P. This may be by-design.

This is all I have.

So you have that too?

Fine but how come I don't get all the files, only certain ones? Like I have a whole bunch of other folder on my desktop.

Also, I have a problem similar to this on this other account. It seems to be a history that won't go.

For example, everything is deleted right? I look at the history from the side there is nothing there but my homepage. Now, I go to search for example, MSN.com and search this link..and there it is, still there. This one is a link that doesn't go. How do I remove that?

You could download and install CCleaner here. It removes all types of stuff, including IE history.
