So, for an editorial I was doing, I needed to search for Mickey Mouse, so, using IE, I Googled a search for Mickey Mouse.
Well, that was some time ago but I have a problem I have no clue how to get rid of.
No matter how many times I clear my AutoComplete, History, Temp. Files, cookies, and on/offline content, whenever I type the letter "g" the mickey mouse google search comes up.
I know it's not a big deal, but it is really annoying the heck out of me. Can someone please tell me how to get rid of this problem? I have searched and emailed google and got the same answer of "Clear AutoComplete/Turn Autocomplete off" or "Use down arrow and hit delete button" but nothing works or will get rid of it.
Any and all help on this would be greatly appreciated. I mean, I don't think there is an uninstall/reinstall IE on my computer. I mean, when you put up Windows XP, isn't having explorer just a default program as part of the setup? So, yea...I need help. Thanks.
In IE help, put in the phrase autocomplete. It brings up a few options.
I think you can completely turn off autocomplete by doing this

You can configure AutoComplete to save and suggest only the information you want. You can choose whether to use AutoComplete for Web addresses, forms, and passwords, or not use it all. You can also clear the history for any of these.
In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options. Click the Content tab. Under Personal information, click AutoComplete. Select the check boxes for the AutoComplete options you want to use. Related Topics
You can also apparently clear the autocomplete by clearing your history.

The AutoComplete feature saves previous entries you've made for Web addresses, forms, and passwords. To delete entries from the Address bar, you must clear your History folder. You cannot clear individual entries from the list of saved entries.
On the Tools menu in Internet Explorer, click Internet Options. Click the General tab. Under History, click Clear History. Notes
When typing information in Web forms, and typing passwords, you can remove an item from the list of suggestions by clicking the item and then pressing the DELETE key. For Help on an item, click at the top of the dialog box, and then click the item. Related Topics
If those don't work, you could always switch browsers and use a Mozilla product. I recommend Firefox, but the Mozilla suite also works nicely. Http://mozilla.org for more details about both products.
Hope that helps.
Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.
Well, I'm declaring it done, although it's failing in the kindest, gentlest fashion I've ever seen from unhappy hardware. :-) Power up the machine & the tray opens. Close the tray, it thinks a moment, then opens the tray. Repeatedly.
