Default autofil

OK.. I give up.. I have this "autofil" button in my IE7 that when a web page asks for my info, I click it and it "autofils" it in for me.. but.... its partly wrong and I always have to change it... so.................. where the heck can I correct this once and for all? I've searched, ran Help, asked, and still can't find it.. if I can't change it, how do I just delete it so it goes away and doen't bother me anymore..?... thanks.. frustrated!

The best way to USUALLY get it to clear itself out is to go ahead and disable AutoComplete (under tools), close the browser, open the browser again, and re-enable AutoComplete. (It is under the content tab by the way - inside of IE's Options section.)

Then go to General Tab, Browsing Histroy, Delete, Delete All
