Default IE auto complete

Hello there,

Is there anyway to delete only some of the autocomplete entries in IE, instead of deleting them all?

Give this a whirl

History: as you surf the web, the list of places you've visited is kept as your history. You can control how much history is kept by adjusting the setting found in Tools, Internet Options, General tab, History box, Days to keep pages in history setting. By making this a smaller number, perhaps a week or even just a few days, you'll make a significant reduction in the number of URLs that IE will show for auto complete. You can also completely clear history here, if you like. Alternately, if you would rather truly edit the history, press this History toolbar button, which will open the history window, and you can right click on any entry and select delete.

Sorry about that man... i misunderstood the question.

Did you just try deleting it from the list, when the list appears just use the down arrow to select the one and press delete.
