AutoComplete stopped working

by alydar66 / January 22, 2005 4:06 AM PST

The other day I cleared the Auto-complete forms and user names. For some reason the Auto-Complete function does not work anymore, even though it is enabled. It stopped working right after I cleared everything. Im using Win98. Does anyone have any ideas why it is not working?

Have You Tried ?

Autocomplete problems aren't common but you may have received some file corruption.

The first thing I would do is a "Scanreg /restore". It should revert the registry back to a time when things worked correctly. When you run the command, you will receive 5 different registry backups to use. Choose the one that worked.:

If that doesn't get it done, then Windows 98 has a small utility called System File Checker which can find and replace "corrupted" files...

Hope this helps.
