Default Editing drop down boxes in XP

Does anyone know of software to edit saved passwords, search info etc. for XP? For instance if I'm searching for something on Ebay, it will save it in the search window, so if I type the same first letter for something else, all searches that begin with that letter drop down. I'll try to right click to delete the items I don't want saved anymore, but I don't get a menu to delete any items. Any suggestions, or software for this problem? Thanks

look lil new here? well welcome if so
ok u use IE? i hope not.. first u can get FireFox or Opera
idk bout opera but here is how u can fix it for FF or IE
IE: tools>internet options> ull see a box titled temporary internet files
delete your cookies and cache (wont harm your system) and there was an option when xp was new on ur computer to look up words like u explained called auto complete

FireFox: tools>options> (on the left) privacy. now u can just hit clear all to make it fast. should help

I'm Forgetful! so if i stop posting on something that i was helping you with... PM me or IM me
yahoo and aol: blitze105
you can always IM or PM me if i offend you as well, i will edit the post if i have.

to delete auto complete entries, make the selection appear, highlight the selection you wish to remove and press the delete key on your keyboard.
