Description:
Internet explorer uses the option "autocomplete" to remember the typed text in a web form or a url. On the web forms, internet explorer can call previously typed inputs of a field. It can suggest from the previous entries existing in the list, if any. By applying this registry setting you can disable the option of auto-completion on forms. For this, go to start > run menu, enter regedit and navigate to the registry path listed below. If any of the sub keys internet explorer\control panel is not present, create it as explained below. Then, create a dword value formsuggest, if this value does not exist. Now, right-click and modify the value to 1 which can disable the option of auto-completion on forms. However, if you want to enable the option back, change the value data to 0 or delete the value. The changes take effect after a restart or logoff. When editing the registry it is highly recommended to run a quick scan for optimization, you can test your system now for free.
