predictive text on Windows XP
A couple of years ago I logged on - once - to the New York Times website. Now whenever I start to type a URL starting with N, the predictive text function spells out nytimes.com for me and I have to overwrite it. A very very minor irritation, but how do I stop it? I've deleted my history, cleaned out my cache, given the whole terminal syrup of figs... Can I disable it? Where is it hiding?

strangely enough Kerplunk, that is unchecked already; the system is obviously taking no notice of it. Hmph. I shall try the Tracks Eraser again ( it got snarled up first time I tried.) None of this is a big problem, I can't see the NY Times hosting spyware and I do have Norton and AdAware prowling around hissing at intruders. But I'd just like to think I could be the one to decide what appears on my own screen. Thanks everyone.
