Auto Complete Prompt

Can somebody please explain to me how to disable the Auto Complete prompt in Internet Explorer? I'm running XP Pro. I know it has something to do with the registry key [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Intelliforms but, having navigated to it, I don't know what to do with it!

Hi

In internet explorer go to tools then click on intenet options, click on the content tab and look under Auto complete and click on settings and then deselect the check boxes.

Is that all there is to it? I thought you had to go stomping around in the system registry! Thanks for that.

Thinking about it, doesn't that just turn off Auto Complete rather than the prompt that asks you if you want to turn it on? What puzzles me is that it has only just started prompting me.

I dont think so. Give it a try and see what happens.

If you still having problems try resetting Internet Explorer:
1. Open Internet Explorer 7.
2. Click Tools, and then click Internet Options.
3. Click on the Advanced tab.
4. Click on Restore Advaned Settings.

What anti-virus software are you using and when is the last time you did a full virus scan?

Thanks for your help. I have actually scanned using Zone Alarm Security Suite (AV and AS), and Superantispyware and Malwarebytes in the last 24 hours. Not much came up.
