    I have two systems, an older AMD system and a brand new Pentium dual core. Both run XP Pro.

    In Google when entering search details, Google helpfully offers a list of previous searches starting with the same characters.

    This doesn't happen on the new system and I can't for the life of me discover how to correct this.

    Any ideas anybody?

    Thanks blackmirror,

    I had that set for web addresses, but hadn't checked the "forms" box.

    Problem solved.

    Easy when you know how.
