Preferred Solution: windows 7 with IE9 auto complete not working?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello leroyj & welcome.
*Has Auto Complete ever worked?
*Has it indeed been turned off?

Internet Explorer 9 Privacy Statement



The AutoComplete feature in Internet Explorer lets you more quickly fill out web forms and navigate to websites you have visited in the past. AutoComplete collects and stores in the registry on your computer the data you type in web form text boxes and the Address bar. If you choose to use AutoComplete for passwords, they will be stored in encrypted form on your computer. AutoComplete information is not shared with other user accounts on your computer.
The first time you submit a web form, you will see a message box that asks if you'd like to turn the AutoComplete functionality on.

To turn AutoComplete off

In Internet Explorer, click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.
On the Content tab, in the AutoComplete section, click Settings. In the AutoComplete Settings dialog box, clear the appropriate check boxes for the AutoComplete options you do not wish to use, and then click OK.

To clear AutoComplete history

To clear AutoComplete or web address history, click the General tab, and then, under Browsing History, click Delete.
In the Delete Browsing History dialog box, select the Form data and Passwords check boxes, and then click Delete.
Note:To clear web address entries, you must select History, which also deletes your browsing history.
Click OK.

I use Microsoft Office and Word 2007 and I.E. 9 in Vista Home Premium. After doing some ?fixes? for other issues, I lost the feature of Auto Complete for dates. I tried to restore to an earlier time and that did not fix it. I also checked the Auto Complete in Internet Options and ran Malware. How can I restore the Auto Complete for dates?

Running Visa Home 32 bit on a laptop, using Windows Mail/Outlook. The email address auto complete was working then all of the sudden it stopped. Now it will auto complete only email addresses that a message was sent to in the last 24 hours. I checked the settings and they are correct, it should be auto completing. I tried going in and deleting the reg key for that, no help. I restored it. I personally don't use Vista, this is for the bosses wife, so I don't know a lot about what else to do. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Sometimes email addresses will auto-complete, and other times they will not when I am composing messages. It's quite irritating. Does anyone have any suggestions for how I can fix this? Obviously, I do have the "auto-complete" option turned "on."

Thanks in advance!

Ok so here is the story.... If you want to change a windows icon on the desktop....

-you right click on the icon
-go to properties
-go to the shortcut tab
-click on the change icon
then if toy browse to the system32 folder and type the letter P all the folder with P and more appear... if you type pi then the count drops only to the pi files.... eventuall trping the letters prins you to pifmanager.dll

The process that got me there once insidethe system32 folder is a form of auto complete... so how does one turn this on for all file in the explorer folder.... say saving a document and then once my documents opens you hit the s and all files with the s turn on se filters it down to only thoes files.... hence this is the question? How to turn it on for everything

Could someone please help me in figuring out what I need to do to have Windows Mail auto complete the address of the recipient. Sometimes it works and most of the time it does not. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you

A:Windows Mail (auto complete address)

Hello Therapist,

Welcome to the forums.

WM will auto complete the last 29 addresses you have sent emails to. If you have the addresses in your contacts folder, it should auto complete from there. It may however wait until you hit the send button to do so if you haven't installed SP1. You can use just a first or last name and if there is only one possibility it will send(go to outbox). If more than one possibility it will give a list to choose from. It will not look these up until you click (or tab to) somewhere besides the line you are entering the addresses in.

Hope this helps.

I know this is symple as hell, but how do I clear my windows auto-complete history, as far as windows search and such--in MS antispyware I use their "clear search history in windows" option, but it does not clean the auto-complete as far as starting new words and the HUGE list pops up

When creating a "new message" you place the curser in the "to" box and as soon as you start typing a letter of an email address you have used - it "automatically gives you options of all email addresses that start with that letter (that you have used) and you click on the one you want.

I want to disable that feature and delete those addresses that I can click on. How do I do that?

Hi Dalton,

Welcome to the forums.

In WM, click Tools/options. Click on the send tab and uncheck 'automatically complete...' That should do it.

I don't know what is going on with auto complete? It only functions sparingly especially when I am browsing websites like Amazon and Ebay. If I type a subject in on Google, I get a drop down list of subjects that are similarly spelled. It bypasses all my previous searches. Is this a bug from Google?

A:Auto complete or Auto Fill field in Access?

Yes, well, unfortunately, in Access, the drop-down list is the only type of control that uses auto-fill, unless you want to use a text box and code (there's an example of that in the developer's handbook, but it's complicated).

No matter how big your list is, if you sort the underlying query alphabetically on company name, it will still autofill, and you can even build a not-in-list response to add new customers...

Make sure the auto-expand property of the drop-down (or combo) control is set to Yes, and you'll see that you never even have to drop down the list...

I know that Auto Complete works in a column vertically but is there a way to make it work horizontally in a row, going across the sheet?

A:auto complete

Hi there,

Not in the traditional sense, no. But if you select a cell and click and hold the bottom right corner (cursor should turn into a bold + sign), you can drage right. Alternatively, if you select the cell in question and the cell(s) to the right you want to fill, you can hit the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + R to rill right. You do not have the luxury of double clicking the bottom right corner as it will only fill down as far as the adjacent left column has contiguous data in it. Set your autofill options in Tools | Options.

In XP, is there a difference between Auto Complete and Auto Fill? In all the help features there is no mention of Autofill but I have it on my toolbar.
It was working fine until I inadvertantly typed 2506 instead of 25303 for my zip code. Someone suggested Autowhat from PC Magazine but that has not cured the problem. Is there a way to start over or find the pesky 25606 and kill it for good? Thanks.

A:Auto complete

One thing you might try, type the zip code so that the auto-complete fills in, Move your mouse cursor over the word that you want to delete but do not click on it. It will be highlighted.
# Click your delete key on your keyboard.
You can right click the IE on your desktop, properties> content tab> AutoComplete button> check the items you want auto-complete to fill in. You can also clear all the enteries from this tab.

I am not that familiar with auto complete. But when I would go to my web mail site, I had clicked "remember me" and when I would go there, I could just type the first letter of my address and it would automatically fill in the address bar, then click on it again and it would post my password. Now my user I.D. is already filled in but I have to type in my password. How can I get that back, the password filled in automatically?

I have a interesting problem that is probably something I am overlooking.When I finally installed IE7 with the updates, it finally worked great except for one issue.When I use the Auto complete feature for certain forms and passwords, it will ask if I want to store them and on certain ones that I do not worry about security issues ,I say yes. It saves the info but the issue is that when I return to the site later, it does not auto complete or offer a few suggestions the way it used to in IE6.The proper boxes are checked in options to use auto complete and save passwords and it does work but just does not auto complete when it should. Example: This site as I would log in would show my logon and complete the password, now it stays blank...Any Ideas??Moderator Edit: Moved topic to more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

I inadvertently saved a wrong password into IE and instead of prompting me when I put the correct password in, it's not. So every day, I start to type in my user name and it auto completes and puts in the incorrect password, and I type in the correct one. I don't know if it's Vista or IE 7 but in IE 6, if I made a mistake, it would ask me next time around because it was a different password. I know I can "clear" the settings in tools but I don't really want to do that since I've already saved some other passwords. I've only had this Vista system for three days. So is this a glitch in IE 7, maybe?

I have Office XP with Outlook 2000. When I type an address of an email recipient, I get the auto-complete feature. However, there are loads of obsolete addresses in there, many of which I haven't used in ages. I might get a menu of 6 names, only one of which is still valid. How do I edit the addresses that appear under auto-complete? They have to be connected to Contacts, but how do I edit them out? It's not simply a matter of deleting them from Contacts...I don't see a lot of the names I want to edit in Contacts at all...

Now, check or uncheck the options you would like. For example, to stop IE6 from automatically entering in web addresses, uncheck the "Web addresses" checkbox.

Press "OK" to close this dialog box, then "OK" to close the "Internet Options" dialog box.

Has anyone got any suggestions to solve the following:

I am using IE7 on Vista Ultimate with SP1.

When I log onto my providers e-mail site or into Windows Mail I cannot get "Auto Complete" to retain my log on and Pin/Password info. in either mode.

I have tried all of the obvious things in: Tools/Internet options/content/auto complete etc. and Tools/Internet options/general/browsing history etc. Nothing works.

If I switch users and go on line to my IP e-mail everything works fine and IE7 auto complete saves my log on info. I do not want to change my Windows Mail to a different user so I would like to try to solve this problem. It started AFTER I downloaded SP1?

I hope someone can help.

I can't get Outlook 2010 auto complete e-mail addresses to remain from session to session. Auto complete is removed every time I start Outlook again. I can put them in every session by dragging all my contacts to the inbox and pressing control + K to initiate auto complete for all my addresses, but once I close down Outlook and restart again they are not there and I have to physically type the address in which is becoming a bit of a drag. As you can see from the following image I have auto complete selected.

For the benefit of anybody else who has this problem I was having trouble getting the auto complete e-mail list to remain after the current session. I had used a program called PC tuneup and it obviously emptied my auto complete list and my usual method of dragging all my contacts to the inbox and pressing control K would only work for the current session. In other words when I closed outlook and reopened it the auto complete list was empty. I ended up downloading a little app called nk2view and it works really well, not to mention that it made adding e-mail addresses to the auto complete list very easy.

A:Can't get auto complete to remember an email address

That's a nice explanation, but, what the heck webmail and browsers are you using??

If you're using IE, see: Internet Explorer AutoComplete - Turn On or Off for settings.
Since your Host changed servers that first addy may have to be placed in a trusted zone.
There's the possibility with the transfer of servers, the new server still thinks that, that first addy is already saved.
It could be the new server doesn't recognize a security certificate for that addy.
If browser settings are okay, I'd check with your Host.

And please; It would be very helpful if you would fill out your System Specs, you can use the tool included in the Tutorial here: System Info - See Your System Specs just read through the tutorial, use one of the downloads, and it will automagically fill them in for you.

In one spreadsheet I can start typing a word or phrase in a cell and if that is in any cell above it (in the row) it will finish the word or phrase. (even with blank cells above it)

In another spreadsheet, I canít, even though I went into the Options and made sure that it is an exact mirror of the one that will auto complete.
Is there any where else to look at?

A:Solved: Auto complete a word or phrase

Hi mrl,
In the spreadsheet that does autocomplete with blank cells above it, is there data in the column next to the column you want to autocomplete? That may be the difference. For example, if you're entering text in A4 and A3 is blank but B3 has text, it will autocomplete. If both A3 and B3 are blank, it will not.

You need to set the bios (tap F2 after pressing power button until you enter setup)so that cd drive boots first before the hard drive so you can boot to the cd to restore. Ctrl F11 has nothing to do with running the restore disks.
Are you pressing Ctrl F11 immediately after pressing power button and continuously until you enter restore partition?

Before upgrading to Window$ XP whenever I placed a program CD in the CD-ROM drive windows would run the setup file on the CD for me. Now that I have upgraded to XP this has stopped working.
Any ideas?

Did you try "system restore"? Try it, if you haven't already and back up about a week or so.
