    I am at work on a windows xp machine and it is driving me mad having to fill in usernames and the like all the time. With our old 2000 system everytime you entered the first letter it would have a dropdown list of all the previously entered text and you chose the one you wanted instead of filling it out all the time.

    You need to turn on 'Auto Complete' within the IE preferences.

    Open IE
    Tools
    Internet Options
    Click on the 'Content' tab
    Click on the 'Autocomplete' button
    Check or uncheck the options you require
