Hi Telse

Is it logging on to an account on the web? If so you can try & clear autofill. Which browser are you using?

Thank you for your help.I am using Firefox.I am fairly new to the techworld and still find things confusing.I tried finding disable autofilland thought I had done so. Not.With a liitle more patience and more reading, I discovered that the up and down arrows enable autofill.SoI tried this-along with delete,and low and behold-gone.Amazing what a little patience will do.Thanks again for your help.I'm not sure how tovote.This is my first time here.I pressed the arrow-up.???cheers Telse.

When you are typing in your user name and the incorrect one appears, you should be able to delete that name by simply highlighting it completely and hitting the DEL button. After this, it should no longer appear in the list of autofills.

Thank you for responding.I did try that.Everything seemed stuck.I have it working again.I discovered the up and down arrows on the keyboard enable autofill.Using these arrows and delete made the name disappear.Thank you Nauti.cheers Telse

      I can't be alone out there but is there a way to permanently get rid of the annoying "Speed up browsing by disabling add-ons" message that appears at the bottom of IE9 everytime you launch?
      Thanks

      Okay I'm asking a lot of questions here at once. I'm not too savvy with computers. So in my apartment I have a TL-WR340G router and my upload speed is really slow. I do a lot of video editing for YouTube and so I'm trying to figure out how to upload videos faster. I seem to be capping out at around 700 Kbps but I'm supposed to be getting 70 megabits per second on this connection. Everything is hooked up over wireless. The speeds are the same on my new Mac and on my old windows PC.

      Hello there. I would like to know if there is a way to select and forward (quite a few) e-mails all at once. Instead of doing one at a time.I do not want to move all of my mail - just selected folders of my mail. I tried an e-mail moving program a while ago and it moved all my mail and made a mess.
