    Installed IE7 this evening on a production laptop with no other helper
    software, (track eraser, etc.) other than Google Toolbar. IE7 would not load
    any previous autocomplete info from IE6 protected storage. Tried "Inline
    Autocomplete" checkbox in Advanced settings. No go.

    All Internet Options>Content>Autocomplete settings would indicate that
    Autocomplete should be working but no logon/password combos ever appeared
    when attempting to logon on to the 6 or 7 sites tried where IE6 Autocomplete
    info had been used previously.

    IE7 has been uninstalled successfully and reversion to IE6 is complete where
    all Autocomplete functionality has been restored.

    Our division (300 laptops and 1500 desktops) will not be installing IE7
    until this is addressed. I suggest that MS devise a plan to fix the broken
    Autocomplete function for those upgrading from IE6.
