Contents Of Registry File:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\AutoComplete]
"Append Completion"="no"
"AutoSuggest"="no"
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
"Use FormSuggest"="no"
"FormSuggest PW Ask"="no"
[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\AutoComplete]
"Append Completion"="no"
"AutoSuggest"="no"
[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
"Use FormSuggest"="no"
"FormSuggest PW Ask"="no"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel]
"FormSuggest"=dword:00000000
"Form Suggest Passwords"=dword:00000000
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have one check box that I have not been able to uncheck through the registry.
"User Names and Passwords on Forms"

If possible I would also like to know if there is an entry to completely make the AutoComplete Section Dissapear from view for the end user so they do not see

You can hide the entire content tab in IE using Group Policies...

Start > Run > gpedit.msc

User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer > Internet Control Panel > Disable the content page (Set this to Enable)

I need to do this through the registry not through policy.

To hide the Content tab, and make the section disappear...
'HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel\ContentTab' - Set the DWORD value to '1'

The missing forms key is:
"HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FormSuggest Passwords" - Set String value to 'no'
