How do you make the username auto-populate in the logon window in IE7?

I have 3 shortcuts on my desktop, to 3 different sites.  When I click on 1 of them, the username auto-populates in log on window with but no password.  Which is what I want, username to be there and have to type in the password.  The other 2 are not like that.  When I click on the shortcuts, the username is not in logon window.  However, when I type the letter "l" in the box, the username appears as a selection to choose.  How can I get the username to stick in the username logon window for the all 3.  I have all 3 sites in "Trusted Sites" and have tried putting the username/password in Users > Manage User Passwords.  I don't want to put the password in the registry.

Have you looked at your auto complete settings?

Yes.  We have set that to remember both usernames and prompt to save password.  We have cleared the forms and passwords also.

It looks like the username saves for intergated windows authenication in iis.  The two that don't auto-populate are basic authenication.

you say
"However, when I type the letter "l" in the box, the username appears as a selection to choose"
Are there other selections to choose?
If you start with a different letter does it auto populate with a different username ?
