My children spilled sweet tea on our tower and since the hard drive is installed "upside down" the hard drive is soaked. I have a new one now, but had to reinstall everything and i am trying to get my settings like I like it. I just don't remember how.

I would like to know how to do a few things...it has been so long since I had to I can't remeber how. When I start to type in a username, it offers me a name after a few letters type...I don't want this to happen.

I also do not want to save the history of places I have visited online, I don't know remember how to do this.

Would you also be able to tell me how to do these things on IE8 AND Firefox? I am thinking of only using Firefox, buthave no idea how to make the setings like I want. I want to cover my tracks, thats all.

Maybe you could suggest a website I can go to for how to's on this type of things. I hate to bother ppl with such minor questions if its on a website somewhere. I had used the kimkommando site before but i think you have to be a memebr nos for that.

Cheers

If you want to "cover your tracks" you can use "Private Browsing" in Firefox and "InPrivate Browsing" in IE8.
