    URL trouble

    OK, so I am having trouble deleting an URL (He, don't ask why I want to delete it )
    I have tried all the common, like Tools>InternetOptions>Settings>ViewFiles and deleting them. Also I tried deleting everything I could think of on Internet Options.
    I have also tried the registry. Looked in Typed URL and stuff, but it just isnt on the registry

    But every time I type "y" on the Address bar, an annoying address keeps showing.

    Any of you guys might have an idea where the problem is located?

    this is information which i believe is stored in index.dat files on your computer. Try to look for a utility to scan for those and delete them.

    CCleaner should do the trick i believe
    I am the luckiest man in the world

    Its under internet options. You will want to clear the history and possibly the autocomplete stuff. History is under General, AutoComplete is under Content.

    AE was right, the problem was located in AutoComplete.
    And CCleaner actually removed arround 50Mb of stuff I didn't really need ...

    Thanks
