you could try this when in safe mode click start run , and type in msconfig then click mormal start up then apply , then reboot hope this helps

hi, just tried that, and it said msconfig was not recognized, so i typed "exit" again, that took me back to the page with just "safe-mode" in each corner, and nothing else.. but thanks anyway...

Crap cleaner should get rid of your unwanted files.

damn.... Sans le Sou has beat me to it.... CCleaner DOES remove the "Typed URLS"

thanks all, ccleaner, window/washer and at least 4 other progs have failed to delete the URL's, been into regedit and all there is there is a icon with ab written in it and the word "default" there must be some way, I have just found out that if you press "ctrl" and O nothing is listed, but that is for another day.

click here
Microsoft instructions on how to repair IE and/or Windows from previous postings click here click here You've tried all the programs which normally clear your URL and other history , and a good number of other fixes as well...none of which have worked.You clearly have some problems with either IE itself or Windows or both....I think you will save yourself a lot of time and bother by going down the repair/reinstall route.

ok, i will go down that path, just to see what happens, because this is on two laptops, one running XP with sp2, the other is a clean install of XP without the SP2...I will report back.........thanks

you said earlier that if you type a letter into the "open" box you get a list, they are not URLS they are bookmarks, and you are not the first to make that mistake, if you go to your favorites folder, pick out a letter and delete all those starting with that letter, then go to your open box and type in that letter nothing will come up, you can always put them back after.. hope that helps.....
