Hi,

1) Tools/Internet OPtions/Content/Autocomplete/clear Forms (drop down lists in forms, search engines, etcetera)
2) Start/Run/Regedit >HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs (address bar drop down list)
3) HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Doc Find Spec MRU (Find/search drop down list)

Good luck,

You can also download <A HREF="http://www.microsoft.com/ntworkstation/downloads/PowerToys/Networking/NTTweakUI.asp">Tweak UI 1.33 </A>, which will do most of that automatically every time you start up if that's what you want:



Good luck,
