    Hellooooooo

    I am looking for a way to clean up the autocomplete list. You know when you click on seach window or an email window, and it drops down a list of items that have been used. (not the history list for the internet) Some friends came over and looked up some things (not natural things) and I would like those out of that list, or find a way to clean that.

    IE has a "clear autocomplete" in Internet options>content tab. You can also try highlighting the item you want to delete and hit the delete key on your keyboard.
