The only other thing i could suggest is run a quick adaware scan, and then check the 'MRU lists' box. i know that removes what documents you have opened, but i dont know if it does the same for internet explorer searches.

I understand that it removes everything in there, however there is no way to determine what is safe and what isn't under cookies and files. Besides it's much faster and better to clean 'em all up every now and then.

yeh i know, but sometimes clearing all of the users internet files can surprise/annoy them. i belive johanna asked my to use a more selective approach instead of clearing all temps. its up to user though, not us. :tazz:

It will only clear it, but in the future, it will certainly come up again..


jhamby,
You have to disable Auto-Complete (forms) if you want to get rid of the keywords/forms on search box and such others.

Internet Explorer
Tools
Internet Options
Content Tab
At the bottom part, click on the Auto Complete button
Uncheck Forms
OK, Apply, OK

I am assuming your using IE 6 SP2

jrom727 & Zoey Z have explained how to clear auto complete and prevent it from storing the drop downs again.

I use a free prog(I'm sure there are many) SrubXP , it clears all temp files for the user logged in(plus much more, via a double click on a system tray icon. Truely an excellent time saver, i like to keep everything clean so manually clearing temp files and so forth would take an awefull lot of clicks...

Hope i didn't break any rules posting that link, im sure an admin will remove it if needed :tazz:
