I know how to clear my cache so that it doesn't load up with old email addresses, however I would like to know what to shut off so that I have to fill out forms each time. It can remember some delicate information at times and I would like that to stop, not just keep happening as soon as I fill out a new form. Thanks!

Troubleshooting information

Java quick starter, Microsoft .net framework assistant, AVG safe search
