    I run IE 6.0 on Win XP pro. even when I clear clear history, delte
    cookies, files, autocomplete. It doesn't clear fully when I type
    something in address bar. how do i correct this?

    I even get rid of stuff from History, temp and Temporary Internet
    Files folder.

    try running regedit then go to key location

    HKey_users//<Long number unique to user>>//Software/Microsoft/internet
    explorer/Typed URLs

    or a quicker way is Regedit then edit menu ans click find. Enter a url
    that appears in ie6.0 that hasnt been cleared and it will find it :)
    hope that helps




    Outa here.... got a muppet to save

    Have you also deselected the three check boxes above the autocomplete
    button?
