I've done several fresh installs of IE9. The only "change" I've implemented has been Internet Options > Content tab > AutoComplete Settings button > uncheck all AutoComplete options, which should turn AutoComplete off. At least it does in IE8 and I don't get any nags asking if I want to turn it back on. But the nags do appear in IE9. Using "reset" merely restores the check marks to the AutoComplete Settings options. Only with AutoComplete "enabled" do the nags stop.

Brink may be your best bet at figuring out why your system has this problem with IE9 but his does not. I'm sticking with IE8 until IE9 is no longer beta.

I'm hoping he'll have some success. This is the only remaining issue I have with IE9. I'm just being mule-headed trying to figure out why the AutoComplete nags are happening.

If you're deleting cookies regularly, why don't you just enable AutoComplete. If I'm not mistaken, those entries will just go away when you delete your cookies (or was that internet history)...

Lee,

In addition to the location above from the PM you sent me. I found this one as well that may be related.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Internet Explorer \ Main]
"Use FormSuggest" = "no"

Shawn, thank you for that added information. Just to bring everyone up to speed, I edited the registry as follows:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\AutoComplete
"AutoSuggest"="no"
"Append Completion"="no"

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\IntelliForms
"AskUser"=dword:0x00000000 (0)

The registry originally had Append Completion=no, but it did not have IntelliForms or AskUser. Once the new registry key/values were added, I also showed Use FormSuggest=no (as suggested by Shawn's detective work.)

For the first time since I installed IE9 beta, those nagging, constant prompts asking if I wanted AutoComplete to remember web forms has ceased.

remove the "open" and "merge" entries from context menu?
safe to assume its impossible to remove the "open" and the "merge" entries from the context menu? I figure if i want to open or merge them i would simply double click. Clutter and redundency in this vein dont suit me :P
