Hello,

I allow Windows XP to save my log-in info on various sites, such as this one. I like to click on the username box and have my remembered username show up on a drop down menu for me to choose it. However, I am having an issue with this feature.

On one site in particular, I am given too many choices. It is showing me saved usernames from other sites as well as the correct username. Does anyone know why this might be? Or, how to delete the extra choices?

This is not a big problem, but is one that has me stumped. BTW, I just reimaged this machine, and otherwise it is working perfectly. It is not infected.

I have created a picture for you to see what I am talking about. Thanks so much for your help.

Not being an IE user, I could only find an option to delete all autocomplete info, rather than selected entries. Perhaps there's an IE guru about?

It seems that there must be a registry entry for this info that could be modified.

EDIT: I just searched the registry for one of the saved usernames and came up empty. Perhaps these are not saved in the registry after all.
