After all of these years I finally am posting a queston that i have wondered about for sometime. How do I rid of the "drop down" topics that show up when I type in a search in IE7 "http://www........etc. that shows up when I am doing my newest search, or is it possible?
I hope that I explained myself well enough, thank you.

Tools>Browser Options. There's a button there that will allow you to do that.

In Internet options click on browsing history, then click on Delete, then you should see five options, click on Form Data and select (yes). Hope this helps :thumbsup:
