How do I get rid of those windows prompts when you go to type something in a web page ie at one stage I miss-typed my email address in an order form and now any time I go to fill in another form this one keeps coming up. I think there may have been a program on one of the PCWorld CDs anyone recall what it is called or where can download?!
Thanks

have you tried selecting the emeail address with the mouse (not clicking) and pressed delete? i think this was in the pcworld once.

Are you using Internet Explorer? Have a look under Tools > Options and for the auto-complete section. You should be able to clear previously entered data. There might be a option for not using auto-complete on forms as well ... but I'm a bit hazy on this. An IE user might be able to clarify this some more. :)
