    Not sure what you call this.

    When I open a website and I have to type in the user name, after the first
    letter it predicts the user name.
    However I have typed many errors so when this happens I have about 7 names
    appear, is there a way to delete the error ones?

    thanks

    AutoComplete

    Internet Options -> Content -> AutoComplete settings

    You could delete all the cached entries.

    Or maybe you could highlight the misspelled entry in the drop-down listbox
    and hit the Del key to delete it. (This is a guess since I configure IE8 to
    purge all such data to retain a secure host.)
