I am using IE7 and have noticed the autofill has stopped , it is there but it is non active. How do I re activate it?

Thanks rawprawn but i think i will just fill in by hand this looks too risky for an old fogey like me. Thanks anyway.

I'm an old fogey as well, but have you checked the simple thing open IE > Tools > Internet Options > Content tab > Auto Complete Settings and make certain each box is ticked.

Yes they are all ticked. Funny thing is autofill worked a couple of times yesterday although it is greyed out now. So perhaps it is like me good days and bad days. Thanks for your advice, i will leave it at that.

..doesn't work unless the site you are using has configured for it. So sometimes it will work, sometimes it won't. I usually find that you need to click in the space so that there is a flashing input cursor.
