    How can I stop the auto-complete option from giving me past entries as options when I enter something in Google, Techsupportguy.org, and
    other Internet sites. The "Use Inline Autocomplete" is not checked in
    Tools, Internet Options, Advanced. Is there someplace else I can check to stop this from happening? Thanks.

    Look in Internet Explorer.. Tools > Internet Options > Content, Then click on AutoComplete and uncheck those options.

    And if you just want to get rid of all the entries, also click on the "Clear Forms" button in the same place top_gizmo directed you to.
