    Mine used to work, when filling in user names and passwords, but doesn't anymore. Just wondering what could have happened. Thanks in advance. Hope you're having a good start to the weekend.

    Possibly an anti-spyware program or privacy protector program has changed your settings.

    Try Internet Options, Content, Autocomplete.

    I checked where you said .. the settings were as before, meaning to 'auto fill' .. they were 'checked' ..

    Its not a huge problem, just an annoying one. Thank you!!

    Is it really not working or have you just recently cleared all the MRU's so that you need to start refilling them?

    You might also check the registry. Run: regedit

    Find:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

    Check the valus for FormSuggest Passwords (yes), FormSuggest PW Ask (yes), Use FormSuggest (yes).

    Then:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\AutoComplete

    Append Completion (yes)
    AutoSuggest (yes)
    Use AutoComplete (yes)

    If any of these keys is missing (registry cleaner or something), they will need to be created either manually or by reinstalling IE.
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Just FYI, IE generally only autocompletes .com addresses. You can increase that ability by adding other domain names that end with .com, .org, .edu, and .gov.

    Run: regedit:

    In Registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\UrlTemplate, add or change the value named 1, changing its current data of www.%s.com to www.%s.com.

    In Registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\UrlTemplate, add or change the value named 2, changing its current data of www.%s.org to www.%s.org.

    In Registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\UrlTemplate, add or change the value named 8, changing its current data of (none) to %s.net.

    In Registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\UrlTemplate, add or change the value named 9, changing its current data of (none) to %s.edu.

    In Registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\UrlTemplate, add or change the value named 7, changing its current data of (none) to %s.org.

    In Registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\UrlTemplate, add or change the value named 6, changing its current data of (none) to %s.com.

    In Registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\UrlTemplate, add or change the value named 5, changing its current data of (none) to www.%s.gov.

    In Registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\UrlTemplate, add or change the value named 3, changing its current data of www.%s.net to www.%s.net.

    In Registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\UrlTemplate, add or change the value named 10, changing its current data of (none) to %s.gov.

    You're welcome. Did you add the second part, or did it look too intimidating :D?

    Hi,
    i want to set "FormSuggest PW Ask" = no for all users
    but i find this option only under HKCU.
