When you are in IE click on Tools (from the menubar), Internet Options (from the menu) and click on the Clear History button to remove all the sites you have in the list. The effect is immediate.

If you don't want these at all change the number of days to keep history to 0 and IE won't save anything.

Go to Internet Tools click the content tab, and select Auto Complete. There you can clear the forms and password information. You will also have the opportunity to turn this feature off for future use.

It might help too if you delete all entries EXCEPT the default key from the registry.

Located here:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs

The feature you're refering to is AutoComplete. The data for this is stored in the registry (encrypted) at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Protected Storage System Provider
followed by a name. The should be a key under this with field names from HTML forms (name, lastname, etc.).

You can also delete them individually by hitting delete with the item highlighted in IE5 (while using it)

Hope this helps
