Please help ,e with this simple question!!

Can anybody help me?! A very simple question I guess ...
When you are surfing the net and you are asked for your email / password / name, whatever, you click with the mouse where you want to type and as soon as you put in one letter, below appears a sort of memory list with all previous words you have entered starting with that letter. How can I get rid of this?? Please? ...

Hi siannie, welcome to the forums

What you are describing is 'form' behavior. If you click 'Tools -> Internet Options' you can set IE to delete this data when you exit.

By setting the above options you can be sure that 'form' data will not be saved.
[note]If, however, you have a saved pages that you do not wish to have saved then you need to un-check the 1st option in the second pic[/tip]

Press start then in the search box type in autocomplete. Touch the link in the list which will open the 'Internet Properties' dialogue box. Towards the bottom you will see Autocomplete settings - in there there are various check boxes.

That should solve your problem.
