    I have a small problem, I have a computer that runs Windows 2000 and when I go to the interent to aircanada.com and I start to fill in the place I want to fly if I type the first 3-4 letters the town pops up and I can choose it. With my laptop that is running XP when I start to type the first 3-4 letters nothing comes up at all. Is there something I need to do to my XP laptop to make this come up. Thanks

    Open IE and click Tools> Internet Options> Content tab> AutoComplete button. Check the boxes that you want to use autocomplete for.
    Web addresses, Forms and/or User names and passwords on forms. Then click OK, Apply and OK.

    I don't think auto-complete within Windows has anything to do with this problem. The autocomplete function is coming straight from the webpage and not Windows. Sounds like maybe you have some firewall or antivirus software that is detecting the suggestion as a pop up or ad and blocking it. Try lowering the privacy settings and/or ad-blocking features of your firewall/anti-virus.
