Im having trouble with links in my address bar of my IE. I would like to get rid of them because i dont know how they got there and either does no one else in my family. I can delete my history, clear cookies, and and delete offline content and files but they still seem to come up. If you type the first letters of the site in it pops up. How do i make them go away?
Thanks

In internet explorer click tools, internet options, on the content tab click 'auto complete' and uncheck the boxes of the items you don't want remembered. Web addresses being the one you are asking about.

That would stop all of the websites from coming up. There are only some that i dont want. Is there some way to delete them out of the address bad? If i do it that way i can only pick to not have any websites show up when i only dont want a few, also would the websites still be there even though you cant see them when you type them in or am i wrong because it is a huge possibility. I thought i happened to read that somewhere but am unsure about it.

Start>>Run>>Regedit
Navigate to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs
Delete the keys/values you don't want.
The keys are numbered- rename them so they're in order (URL1, URL2, URL3, etc.)

That wont work. A dialog box comes up saying Windows cannot find it. I have windows ME if that makes a difference.

That did work, but i was typing i nthe wrong thing. opps. Those websites are ok though because I have been to them since i cleared my history, its the websites that dont go away after i clear istory and arent in my favourites that are giving me a problem. They arent in that list that showed up under typed urls. I want to know how to get rid of these sites? Does anyone know what I am talking about?

Does this sound like it might do the trick. http://www.teosoft.com/go/index.htm

I dont want to download it in case it is spyware itself, but has anyone heard of it before.
