google remembering requests

Q: google remembering requests

Folks

On my work computer whenever I use google to search for something it retains what I have typed so that when I begin to type initial letters a string of past requests drops down, which is distracting. I know it is there to save me having to retype common requests but.... I'm not that busy and it is a nuisance. Is there anyway I can disable this function?

Look forward to hearing how to do it.

Preferred Solution: google remembering requests

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Folks

I have posted this elsewhere too but... whenever I type in a search in google my computer retains what I have typed. I know it is there to help me not have to retype all the time but it is a nuisance and is distracting. Imagine what it is like when I type www. and a string of loads of past requests drop down. Anyway I want to be able to switch off this 'thing' that is creating this memory.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi,

I've set to clear all history when quitting the Google Ghrome browser, but it is still recognized them so far.

I really did this with MS IE and FireFox, so all history is removed after quitting the browsers.

So how can I do this with Google Chrome?

It would be quite greatly appreciated if you could help me with this.

A:Google Chrome is still remembering history, although set to not do.

When you say History, what exactly are you seeing even after changing this setting? Try to be as specific as possible because what you're seeing could be controlled by a different setting.

What are your opinions about this? "Google keeps its users' search requests as part of its efforts to better understand what specific people are looking for on the Internet. "
There is more to the story about this. I'm sure other search engines do the same thing.
Also, have heard that Google keeps(or could keep) copies of your e-mail even if you've deleted it? Guess that's with the Gmail?

When searching on google I get the following message:

"We're sorry...

Hello,
I started noticing odd behavior from my computer after installing a couple of new programs (Camstudio from downloads.cnet.com, and another one that I may have gotten from elsewhere--I can't remember). It would redirect me to ezpapersolutions.com when clicking on Google links; then if I went back and clicked again, the link would work correctly. I also started having popups. Further, I had Process Explorer set as my task manager, and now it keeps resetting itself to the default Task Manager for Windows 2000. Also, my firewall started receiving these two kinds of requests every few seconds or minutes: for one it said "Someone on address 10.12.15.1 wants to send ICMP packet to your machine" (the firewall reported the 'owner' as "Tcpip Kernel Driver"), and for the other it said "'Run a DLL as an App' from your computer wants to connect to 95.211.128.4, port 80". I have attached the log from the firewall to this post.

Whenever I would go to a site on the net and type in my user name and a new pin, xp would prompt me to remember the pin, so that if I clicked and my user name came up, my pin would automatically be entered.

Now, when I go to Fidelity Investments, I click, but no user name comes up. When I manually enter, no reminder to save the pin comes up either.

When I go to other sites and click, my user name and pin come up.

I don't know if it is a Fidelity site thing, or if I need to do something else.

Greetings BC,

This problem is happening in Chrome. At my school, you have to log in to use the internet. When I connect using the wireless my log in credentials are saved and all I have to do is click log in. However, when using the wired connection (much faster) it does not remember my log in details. I believe it used to but one time a friend logged in with theirs for some reason and now it doesn't remember them. Typing this in every time I want to get on the internet is pretty annoying and I would like to have it remember my log in details.

Picture if you want: http://i.imgur.com/QQjJa.png

I tried deleting the saved password in Chrome for the URL I get when logging in to wired but it didn't remember it after I logged in again.

Could someone please let me know how I can get Chrome to remember the log in details?

Thanks,

In Internet Explorer, I am having a problem. My first step was to contact Microsoft, but they said I would have to talk to you as it was an OEM version. In IE, the box for a username and password pops up. I fill in the info, and check the box to remember it. However, the next time I go back, the fields are blank. This happens every time, for all sites. I have tried everything I can think of, including reseting all default settings, etc. Thank you.

 

A:IE NOT remembering passwords

So Microsoft gave you the address of this site to get help? Is that true?

Anyway, are you talking about IE not remembering the userid and password when you first connect to the net via your dialup connection or are you talking about userids and passwords when you go to certain webpages?

If your talking about it not remembering the userid and password when you first connect to the net via your dialup connection then do this,

Start>Find>Files, key in *.pwl and press enter. You should see one that has the username for your PC. Right click on it and select Rename. Now rename it .old, for example, bhesson.pwl would be renamed to bhesson.old

Now click on Start>Shutdown>Restart. When the Windows logon box appear at startup leave the password box blank and click on OK. It's important that you click on OK and not on Cancel.

Now see if IE remembers the userid and password. You may need to key it in the first time but after that subsequent conections should remember it.

If your talking about userids and passwords when you go to certain webpages then do this, Start>Settings>CP>InternetOptions>Content>AutoComplete. Make sure userids and passwords are selected.

Hi All

Would appreciate some help here!

I have a userform that opens up in excel and allows you to enter information in textboxes on the form.

What often happens is that I am busy entering data into a textbox and then need to switch to a different screen(Alt+tab) to obtain the data I need.

However when I switch the screen back to excel (and the userform) the cursor is no longer positioned in the text box where I left off (it is nowhere on the screen and I have to click in the text box again to be able to carry on typing).

Is there anyway that I can ensure that the cursor remains at the same spot even if I move away form the screen and then return later?

Hi All

I've a minor problem with one of my DVD drives and was hoping that someone might know of a solution. My computer runs off Windows XP Home Edition. I have 2 DVD drives in my computer, (there are also 2 hard drives in the tower) a NEC one and a Pioneer one. In most respects, these two drives work fine independently of, and in conjunction with each other, I've come across no problems so far anyway. I am afraid I can't say how the slave/master relationship works as I've no idea, if it's necessary to know to solve this problem, please let me know how I find out and I'll be happy to provide the info. The only niggling problem is as follows:

My Pioneer drive is the newer, quicker of the two drives, and I use this most of the time, to watch DVDs, play games etc etc. Often I leave a disc in this drive when I shut down my machine. When I turn on my machine again and put another disc in this drive, it still displays the previous disc's contents when I go into explore, and by going to start, run and entering the drive details, it won't start it either. I have to 'wipe' the memory of the disc being in that drive by rebooting. It isn't only limited to a disc being in the drive on booting up either. If the drive was empty, and I put disc A in it, if I later remove it and put in disc B, it still thinks disc A is in there. This doesn't seem to happen with my NEC drive, only the Pioneer one, and the only solution I have found... Read more

I know most think it's terrible, but I love how IE has my username all filled in to sites even when I'm not logged in (but about to). Banks, shipping companies, even facebook. WHen I go to these pages, my username is filled in, and just the password field is blank.

But I must have edited some settings previously, because now SOME of these sites arent showing my username. On my other computers/laptop it still shows, but not on this one anymore.

How can I get that back? I use IE8 if it matters.

Having Windows remember your passwords for logging on to certain sites is very convenient. My husband clicked "no" when prompted to have Windows remember his eBay password. Now he wishes he had clicked "yes." Is there a way to reactivate this? TKS

Since I've been using my new system running Windows XP Home, I've noticed on sites that require log-ins, that I have to re-login all the time when I visit. It's like somehow now my computer is not remembering to automatically remember my log-in information. It may be due to the new firewall installed called CA Internet Security Suite. I tried changing the settings to "medium security", but when I check again, the setting all revert to "high security." This was not a problem with the old computer running Windows 98. What's causing this and is there a fix?

check your firewall config to see if you are blocking cookies. They contain that logon info so if blocked you will have to re-enter your info

I have all of my folders set to default to a list view, but I have one folder on my desktop called "Games" (it's actually on the desktop, not a shortcut to a folder) with shortcuts to my game programs. There are only four icons in there now, so I keep the folder small and tell it to display the shortcuts as Icons, not as List. The folder often reverts, for no apparent reason, however, to a large size and a list view. Why is this? I have tried everything, even resetting all folder options and then setting this folder again (and obviously I have the folders remember settings options turned on). This folder and this folder alone constantly forgets its settings; my My Computer and My Documents windows, for example, remember their size exactly. Does anyone have any idea why this one folder constantly resets itself to this random state?
 

A:Folder not remembering info?

It's a common problem, and I have not heard of a perfect fix. But some times installing the latest service pack (SP) or updating your broswer will cure the problem.

Has anyone had any updates about solving the problem with hotmail failing to remember passwords? It gets irksome having to type in the password every time an emailing session takes place. There doesn't seem to be any way of contacting the administrators of hotmail to get a direct answer. Any ideas?

Silly question and in all my work on computers this is the first time I've run into it...

If you log into another computer via LAN, enter the user name and pasword, check the "remember me" box .... how do you later tell it to forget you so that it will ask for your username and password again?

(p.s. I know how to manage my own... it's a problem that I need to delete someone else's)

A:Un-remembering network credentials....

Are you talking about the main login for a machine on a domain? The "remember me" box is throwing me off, not sure what you mean.

I'm sure this has been covered before, so pardon me asking it again: Why is it that when I specify a folder to save a series of images, it opens to save in My Pictures every time and I have to navigate back to the folder I want. Frustrating!

how can i fix?

A:Folders Not Remembering View

Hello Johny,

It sounds like you are in a library. If so, then this is normal since all included folders in a library share the same folder view.

To have separate folder views per folder, you would need to open the folder at it's actual say "C:\Users\(user-name)\Documents" location instead of in the Documents library.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
