Internet Explorer Address Bar

O/S XP Pro
I have items in my Internet explorer address bar that I can’t remove. I have deleted the history and every other thing that I know of to remove them without successes. Any help appreciated as this is now getting to me.

Click start, run type regedit navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs you can delete or edit the items in the address bar from there

I suppose you tried TOOLS > INTERNET OPTIONS > CONTENT and Auto Complete - then clear history and unchecked the various options?

  expertec 13:47 11 May 04

That doesn;t do it

expertec followed your instruction but there is nothing in TypedURLs.

Taff36 yes I have done all that you recommend but when I replace the tick in Web Address they return.

It does it for me. Basell is talking about the drop down box in the address bar - if so clearing the history on the general tab (1st post) and then the auto complete (My post) gets rid of everything in that drop down box and stops automatically filling the address bar in. What am I missing?

That did work for me in the past but now I have 12 addresses in the address bar that will not delete? If I remove the tick in the Web addresses box then I don’t get any addresses but replace the tick and the 12 addresses reappear. These addresses are from two dates 5/3/2004 and 10/5/2004 very strange.

Are the web addresses linked (Malicious) or random? In other words is this a deliberate attack - if so adaware and Spybot between them should get rid of them.
