    When I make a change in the registry and exit it gives me no choice of saving changes. This is ok untill I reboot and then the registry goes back to what it was befor the changes.
    Help

    Hi padutch

    you don't need to go into the registry to delete the contents of the address bar

    Go to Tools\internet options and click "clear history"

    steam

    Yep , in Typed URL ___ Anyway I found my mistake. I had IE open when I made the changes to the registry. THis time I closed IE and made the changes, rebooted and the changes stayed. Thanks to all the knowledge I have obtained on this site my pc has run perfect for over a year. It is so nice to find such dedicated people with so much knowledge in one little site.
    Thanks
