Windows 7: Autocomplete the Annoyance That Won't go Away :(

Autocomplete the Annoyance That Won't go Away :(

Hi all, I hope I've put this in the right section.

My problem might seem trivial but it is fast becoming very annoying. I have autcomplete disabled and every checkbox in the autcomplete bit unchecked.

BUT, Windows constantly asks me if I want to turn autocomplete on by popping up at the bottom of my screen. Is there anyway I can stop this pop up appearing for good? I tend to delete cookies and all the rest after each day, is this whats causing IE to keep asking me this question and if so is there anyway to disable it?

Thanks for reading and I hope it makes sense


Ps. It done it again after I submitted this, it asked about webform entries

I dug up the below thread that has a few fixes that might help you out. Give as many as you can a try and see if any of them help. It doesn't seem to be a cookie-related problem and the fix in this post seemed to help.
