    How do I turn off the memorized fill in blanks in internet explorer 6. When I go to google it remembers the last entries in the search area.

    Those need to be removed in Regedit:

    Go to Start/Run/Regedit, and delete what you wish in the right pane of HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Doc Find Spec MRU

    Good luck,

    Thank you for your help. I didn't try the regedit. I looked but didn't see how to do it. I was just wondering if it was as easy to do as the internet auto complete.

    Tony, where did they move them (Doc Find Spec MRU is not in the 2000 registry) in 2000?

    Hi Brooks,

    No idea. I don't know much about Win2K, I'm afraid.
    However, I would expect this key to be there in Windows 2000 as well.

    Have you tried searching Regedit by typing Doc Find Spec MRU in the 'search' box?

    I did a search with two different registry editors (I have an aftermarket advanced editor for 2000). It must be called something different in 2000. I will find it eventually.

    Thanks.
