It is most likely a browser setting that is causing this.  I'm guessing you are using IE.  Try this:
Go to Tools, Internet Options, and choose the Advanced Tab.
Find the checkbox that says "Use Inline Autocomplete".  Uncheck that and see if it is still happening.

If the problem is still happening, it's possible that you are dealing with an ajax enabled page, and there should be some type of event that is calling a database and providing that information.  Look for a "onkeyup" or "onkeydown" event that should be in the textbox tag.  Just remove that event, and it won't make the call to autofill.
I'm sorry I think the proper way is actually:
Tools, Internet Options, Content Tab

Then choose "Autocomplete".  Uncheck the boxes, and autocomplete won't occur anymore.
