I think you are referring to "auto-complete". This is IE's educated guessing system on what it thinks you want to type. As you use IE more and more, it will slowly learn what you normally type, and you'll start finding that it knows what you want to type.

There's no easy way to get around this, just visit sites and type in your information. Over time, it'll learn.
