    don't want internet remember my password

    I knew this is not right place to ask the question. I just create web page, in the first time i type my user name and password. But later, it remembered my user name and password. How can i delete it. Many thanks.

    1) ask the question on an internet rathrer than a databasae forums site
    2) search the web for autocomplete, or internet explorer vulnerabilities
    3) don't answer yes when asked if you want internet explorer to save or autocomplete

    there is a setting somewhere within IE that asks if you want to auto complete set it to no.

    Since this is a general conversation I don't understand the flaming of the guy...

    As for the question, Internet Explorer fix is Tools --> Internet Options --> Content tab AutoComplete.

    See if that fixes it.

    I've often wondered about this myself. I just discovered today that my computer remembered some info that I put in a website more than a year ago,
    even though I frequently delete all my cookies.

    I remember finding a way several years ago to delete either
    the fat.db or index.dat (I don't remember which). I wonder if that would
    eliminate all of those autofills....

    This may be a bit off-topic, but here's a quick article on index.dat files:

    Of course, they're peddling software that cleans all such files. But there are a few available that work on a free trial basis. I was just curious to see if I could dust off the ol' DOS skills and do it manually.

    I found out how to do it in DOS. It worked well on my pc...

    Restart in safe mode, with dos prompt
    Log on as Administrator
    type "cd\"
    type "del index.dat /s"
    shutdown -r

    This will remove all versions of index.dat from the pc.
    It found about 30 of them on mine. (network pc, multiple accounts)
