IE 8 Adress Box history

I'm running IE 8, for some reason, despite clearing the browsing history, "History" files keep popping up whenever I'm typing in an adress into the adress box.

Granted there's nothing particularily lurid there, they're just not things I'd want visible to anyone who uses my computer (especially were it to be stolen).

I know in IE 7 you'd just go into the registy, and under:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs

You'd just delete everything except the default. When I go into that key now, there's nothing there but the default value.

Any ideas?
