ive done that bit its still ther =[

exactly how to you "navigate" to the following key?

When you open regedit, on the left side there is a collum with a bunch of folders. HKEY_CURRENT_USER is usualy already open... so you just have to go in Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs and delete what you don't want ^_^

P.S. Not sure if Vista is the same.

Dear Pamela,
When you join a group on line and agree to their terms, so you can leave comment, they own what you say on their web site. It's like that in the real world as well. Once you put it in my ear I can't give it back to you, no matter how much we try, short of taking shock treatments of some sort. I always tend to say too much! Sorry?
