    Now when Internet Explorer 8 is finally a bit moore realiable it feels prioritated to fix this issue..for me its an issue atleast, everytime i write in an adress i get site suggestions after "first word" typed in, picking from my favorites and previous unrelated sitevisits.

    how do i disable this damn function thei dont even have asked for to enable in the first place?

    It will not be enough to link to a Microsoft FAQ that i can search throu myself, i even have diagnose papers (that im holding up infront of my screen right now :D) from the braindoctor that i can't search and find in large documents even thou the answer can be right infront of my eyes (y)
    so a direct klick by klick instruction paste could help here :cool:
    Thanks in advance

    :)

    Open IE
    click on tools top of the page , right hand side beside File Edit View Favourties, then tools is next, come down to Internet Options
    then click on the Content tab
    then the autocomplete box
    take the check out of web addresses
    then click on clear forms
    then in the general tab in Internet Options
    click on delete history

    Hope this is clear enough for you to understand
