A little confused about autocomplete...

    I understand it and I admit that it is helpful when online and I need
    to fill out forms and enter passwords and such...but I hate it when I
    try to save an image and it tries to fill in the name I try to type
    with something close to it's spelling. I know it must be a function of
    WinXP because it happens even offline when I'm not using IE or
    Mozilla.. I use a few different image viewers and no matter which, it
    still autocompletes in the "save as" window. I'm sure it has to do
    with a function of XP, but I can find no documentation on the subject.
    Can someone tell me how to disable this?

    Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, "Internet Options"

    Click the "Advanced" tab. Scroll down to "Browsing",
    uncheck "Use Inline Autocomplete for Windows Explorer"

    Click "Content" tab, under the "Personal Information" section,
    click the "AutoComplete" button, uncheck what you don't want.
    To clear the "Auto Complete History", click the "Clear Forms" button.
