Disable AutoComplete in IE for a specific website only

Hi All,

Our users use a dedicated website that is hard coded to not allow AutoComplete so IE doesn't remember AutoComplete options for that website. This annoys users as they are getting IE prompt to save the credentials but it doesn't save them. They however do use AutoComplete feature for other websites.

So our aim is to disable IE autocomplete for that specific website and enable it for all other websites.

Is there any way of achieving this in IE (policies, reg hack, settings, etc) or is there any 3rd party software that can do this?

An alternative option would be a software / workaround to force remember credentials for that website.

Thanks a lot!

I must misunderstand.  That seems the exact situation you already have .

Sorry for late reply.

"So our aim is to disable IE autocomplete for that specific website and enable it for all other websites."

I meant that we want to get rid of autocomplete prompt to save credentials on that specific website and enable the prompt on all others if possible.

The issue however is now resolved. Thanks for your reply!

Absent any further clarification, the present situation seems to be what the OP wants.  See my earlier post.
