Are you refering to the autosuggest or autocomplete feature of IE?
To disable AutoComplete:
On the Tools menu, click Internet Options
On the Content tab, click AutoComplete
Uncheck the option to use AutoComplete for Web addresses
Also there is buttons to click on to clear Forms and Passwords, if you want to clear the URL's then go to the General tab of the internet options and click on Clear History.

To answer your other question about where the entries are stored on your hard drive, the answer is in the registry.  Check this out for a discussion:
