auto-fill user name, etc. in browser

At my office, I have auto fill turned off, have disabled my cookies, deleted them, cleared my cache and emptied my recycle bin.  Yet, when I go to any website I have previously visited, it always 'remembers' me, no matter which website.  Is there a way to get rid of this?

    Greetings texastwostep,

    From the IE, Go to Tools>Internet options>Content>Auto complete>Clear Forms, Passwords, and then uncheck all the other boxes above.

    Good Luck!

    The AutoComplete feature can be enabled / disabled by modifying a preference in Internet Explorer. Here's how to change the setting with IE6:

    Load Internet Explorer
    Click Tools -> Internet Options
    Click the Content Tab
    Click the AutoComplete Button
    Ensure that "User names and passwords on forms" and "prompt me to save passwords" both have a check-mark
