In Internet Explorer, click on Tools, Internet Options, then the Content tab. Next click the AutoComplete button. Now click the Clear Forms button. Click OK.

If you want to turn off the feature entirely, uncheck Forms under "Use Autocomplete for:" before you click OK.

OK, go to the same place where you cleared forms. Uncheck Web Addresses under "Use Autocomplete for:" and then click OK. Now go to the General tab and click the button that says Clear History. Then click OK. That should do it.

If there are remaining things that show up when you type "www.", then you have to edit your registry to get rid of them, or you can download TweakUI from here:

It includes that option.
