    Ok....I'm fairly new, but learning fast. Using MSN.CA as my homepage....There isan address bar at the top. Whenever I click on this to type in a new URL, all the previous ones appear in a drop down menu. This page/program doesn't have a tools menu...I can't find the files for it in REGEDIT.....I want to clear these, and stop them from recurring. Anyone have a clue???
    Thanks in advance!!!

    goto internet options
    click the content tab
    then click the AutoComplete button near the bottom
    uncheck Web addresses
    choose ok and that should stop it

    Yes...I've done that, and it worked in my IE....but it didn't affect the drop downs on my MSN>CA page. 8<(

    the same basic concept should apply to msn.. check the options for any autocomplete entries, and deselect them.

    MSN Explorer doesn't offer that function. I'm stumped!

    Maybe because it is a web based browser....just like Hotmail is web based. It only allows you certain functions. Does that make any sense?
