IE Autocomplete

Question

How can I stop the Autocomplete feature from asking "Do you want to turn on Autocomplete?" I have disabled Autocomplete, but after visiting the same site 2-3 times the message will come up asking if I want to turn Autocomplete on. I am securing Public PCs and don't want users to click on "yes" and risk having their sensitive data displayed.

Thanks!

A registry tweak will prevent IE's "helpful" reminders First close all IE windows Launch REGEDIT from the star menu Run dialog navigate to the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel in the right hand pane, look for a DWORD value named FormSuggest it will probably not be present in that case, right click in the right hand pane and choose new | DWORD Value from the pop up menu name the new value FormSuggest whether you found it or created it, double click this value and set its data to 1 that should terminate the annoying reminder.
