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.

What is thy bidding? My Master?

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

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
