  1. Heya,
    I have cleared my history, deleted my temp files and cookies and still I have a couple of sites that, when I type in the address bar, are still there and come up when I type in the first letter of that site :mad: . Please can someone tell me how to get rid of the damn things.
    Ta very much
    Jonbo.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs in registry contains the typed-in addresses. Delete all the "url" entries.

    Cheers. I've actually already tried that but it doesn't seem to work. :(

    Have you checked if you have the Autocomplete on?

    Under Content in Internet Options, look for Autocomplete and uncheck all checkboxes. That should solve it. Hope it helps.
