    Even though I think that your question is really OT as the "feature" in IE you are asking about can only be set in the configuration settings of IE, which a (guest) user on a shared machine might not be allowed to change I would suggest that you compose the name for the login and passwd field randomly and send it along with a session Id to the client. You have to temporarily store the session id along with the name of those fields to be able to process the form fields in return as every request will then deliver different named fields.

    Have a nice day
    All decision is left to your taste

      Not neccessarily, you can put the name the password field in the value of a (consistently named) hidden field...

      ... <input type="passwordd" name="rand_a1s2d3f4"> <input type="hidden" name="passwd_field_name" value="rand_a1s2d3f4"> ...
        yeah!

    A better place to look might be the Microsoft Developer Network. I know using VBScript you can control a lot of the IE experience, but I'm not sure if you could turn off the nag message/AutoComplete feature.
      Uhm, and if the Windows scripting host is disabled? You couldn't even figure out that it is without at least trying to execute a script.

    There are a lot of different sort of ways to do it, I think, but you may want to try looking into Win32::Registry or Win32::TieRegistry and hitting the right key. Look around on Google (I found the info here), and realize that any registry mucking is dangerous.

    Keep in mind, that you may not be able to do it while IE is running (well you could, but it may not take hold). You'll wanna search MSDN to search to see if there is an appropriate OM call. What exactly are you looking to do?
