Default Turn off password auto remember?

I must have clicked YES to the "remember login/password stuff" in XP that allows the computer to refill in forms and things like that. How the heck can I turn that back off? Right now if I type in my login, for instance, with Yahoo, I type the first letter and it brings up my login underneath, if I highlight it auto fills in the password. I don't like that one bit.

Any help is really appreciated. I was too tired when I did the build last night and must have not been paying attention.

Yep, it was IE. Thank you VERY much! That was an easy fix.

i hoped it was correct... i haven't use IE in over a year so I had to base that on memory..
