    Let's just say (hypothetically) that you visited a site you may not be so proud of.

    I deleted history but when I go back to the browser and type the first few letters in the address bar the old site shows up as an auto-complete option on the list.

    I have cleared history, create a new page and X'd out the old one, rebooted the phone, but it just won't go away. I'm not talking about the google/yahoo bar but the address bar.

    Any ideas how to clear out the auto complete history?

    You can clear cookies and cache but it will always go back to the last page u viewed.

    I have to agree that I have ran into the same problem. Not because I went to a place, but what I was looking for was not where I ended up. I had to make sure that all items were cleaned out of history, temp files and the cache in order to make sure that it was removed and it seemed to work for me.

    Sometimes a random clean up process could land you in big trouble. My phone started hanging when I did the same. After much research I figured that deleting cache before History could leave no actual space for .tmp files in history and while deleting the History the phone hangs up because of a virtual deadlock.

    you need to delete everything from your internet settings,the cache,the history,the last viewed page,everything.
    only then will it not the page which you hypothetically dont want to be shown :p
