Windows 7: remove default favourites/suggested sites IE11

remove default favourites/suggested sites IE11

The address bar in IE11 displays some (famous) websites which I have never visited. I think they stated to appear after I updated IE recently. Any ideas how to remove them? They do not show up in favourites. I have attached the example images.

Try going to Tools>Internet options> Content tab and look at the settings for AutoComplete. If Address bar is checked, uncheck the whole heading or the individual items you wish to modify.

Hi Gini,
Unchecking search from the address bar would not help Google search results very much because I believe it would stop all searches from being displayed,
Cheers.

No matter how often I say "No" to "Suggested sites" in IE 8 (Windows 7) it keeps coming back and hogging my taskbar. Is there a way I can shoot this thing so it stays dead? :mad2:
