When logging onto some sites or searching on sites such as ebay, options will appear underneath the text boxes with things I have entered before.

How can I stop this?

Any help would be much appreciated

Hi G0N,

Which browser are you using?

Do you mean that things are already filled into spaces when you get there? If you are using Internet Explorer, Autocomplete maybe turned on. There is a setting to let autocomplete help with forms. That setting can be cleared/ and is found by:

Clicking TOOLS on the top toolbar and selecting OPTIONS.
A window will open - click on the CONTENT tab.
Click on the AutoComplete Button - located in the personal information section.
The AutoComplete window will open. Uncheck the FORMS check box and click on clear forms.

I hope this helps,
