I realize that I have asked this question before, I understand that I can setup or refresh the autocomplete in IE via right clicking on the IE icon, going to properties, clicking content, clicking autocomplete and either checking or unchecking the boxes.  Ok, I have done this on my Windows 2000 machine, but it doesn't do any autocomplete, it does ask me if I want to save passwords, but doesn't automatically put in my information.  Now I have put my contact information in the "My Profile" area is that hampering what I am doing?

Thanks

If you left click in the field of the form you should see the information you've typed before. I won't automatically appear.

Also goto tool then internet options. And click the Advanced tab and check Use inline AutoComplete.

You know, I have done all of these and it still does not autocomplete.  I am running Windows 2000, does this have anything to do with it?

Is this at home or is it on a network?

This is at home, why would that matter?

Administrators sometimes put limitations on workstations that can disable AutoComplete.
And yes it should work on Windows 2000 however they will not automatically appear you either have to start typing or click on a field in a form.
Just to make sure if you goto a form and click on where it ask for your name does it drop down a box with your name? Could you give me some examples of websites that are not working? Yes some sites can stop it.

Actually any website that I go to is not working.  So I don't think that it is due to the specific website.  I have never been able to do this on this machine.  Not sure what the problem is.

Ok try going to the Control Panel and open Add/Remove Progams and select Internet Explorer and click ADD/REMOVE. This should give you a repair option.

If you don't see Internet Explorer listed I would recommend going to Windows Updates and download IE5.5 SP1. This SHOULD be a fairly small download.

I would also recommend doing the Critical Updates also.
Also what service pack do you have on 2000. They're up to 2 now.
