    I'm running Windows XP. In Windows 2000, when you type something in the run box or in the address bar in IE, the rest of what you type is automatically filled in based on previous entries. How do I enable this in XP? I receive a drop down list with previous entries, but I either have to completely finish typing what I want to run, or I have to use the arrow keys or mouse to select an entry. It's not automatically completed. I do not want forms or usernames or passwords on internet sites filled in.

    On the tools tab in IE, go to Internet options and click the advanced tab. Enable inline auto complete.
