I dont want my computer to rememeber everything that I enter in text boxes. For example, in email "subject" boxes, if I type a W, it lists all of the last things I wrote starting with a W. How do I get it so it doesn't remember anything?

2. Select Internet Options
3. Select the Content Tab
4. Click the AutoComplete button
5. Select the checkboxes you desire
6. Click OK back out, to the beginning
