Hi!
When i go to certain sites such as http://www.saymail.sympatico.ca I get a popup window with a scrolldown list of previous user names I have typed in. How do I delete this list of user names??
In the windows help it says click on the name of the drop down list and click on delete, but the user names are still there, not deleted, Thanx, Win XP home edition, service pak 2user.jpg
Hum I took a screenshot and uploaded the picture. but it wont show.
Anyways it will be pretty obvious if you go to the site mentionned above, its a legit site. no virus etc. Got it now!

Hey dude,

What browser do you use?

In Firefox, its easier to clear them...
press Ctrl+Shft+Del --> this clears your private data (Cookies, temp.internet files, saved passwords and saved data in the forms)

In IE, go to Internet Options, in Temperary Internet Files section, u'll find delete files and delete temp. files. Just delete them. Then Go to Content tab in the internet options dialog box, u'll find AutoComplete button. Click it. Then clear forms and clear passwords..

In the above given solution, u'll find ways to clear different things..

To clear forms (solution for ur query):
IE ---> Internet Options -> Content -> AutoComplete -> Clear Forms.

Mozilla FireFox --> Tools -> Options -> Privacy -> Saved Forms -> Clear

Actually those user names are leftovers from a previous version of MSN messenger, though they do not show in the current newer version. Go figure

You might try searching all files and the registry for one or a few of the entries. Have also seen entries stored in the latter.
