I'm using IE 6.0 but I'd imagine that this setting is in the same place.

Go up to Tools in the menu. Then Internet Options, then to the Content tab. There should be something like Personal Settings or it'll even say "AutoComplete" like it does in IE 6.0. You can turn all that stuff off there.

I hope that works for IE 5

Just out of curiosity, can you tell me what my explanation lacked that yours provided? Or did you just not see mine when you started on yours. Just curious.

I didn't see yours. I replied when there weren't any replies. You must've snuck your reply in right before me

Oh, ok. I just wasn't sure if I was too cryptic or whatever.

I perfectly understand your explanation but then again I do have a degree in Computer Science.
