Web addresses won't delete (autofill)

Here is the problem:

Autocomplete automatically fills in certain web addresses even AFTER i have deleted the history, internet files, auto complete, etc. I even tried Norton "Clean Sweep" and microsoft's antispyware "Tracks Eraser." Every time, after doing that all the web addresses are gone except for those listed in my favorites and the dozen or so that myseteriously won't disappear!! An example of a website that is "sticky" is "www.alta.com" It won't delete!! IF I start to type www.a... it will fill in Alta.com even though I deleted the cash, history, autofomplete, etc).

What gives? The problem is driving me nuts because I can't find those addresses listed anywhere on my machine (I used the "search" utility of windows to look for them.) They just seem to magically stick around!!

I checked my registry via regedit, and they didn't show up there. So where are they? And how do I get rid of them?

$10 to anybody that can solve my problem!! Thanks!
