history does not delete in ie8

Has anyone had a problem with IE8 not deleting history from system.
I delete history as I`ve always done using Tools,
Internet options and delete history, or Tools, safety,delete history in W7b, history is then empty in Favorites Tab, but when I type in a few letters of any previously loaded webpages they are still there in the browser bar.
I can get rid of them by using CCCleaner and deleting all internet and temp files.

Nope... just tried it to be sure using just IE8 delete history and also running disk cleanup. All gone when I type into address bar.

In Tools/Options/Browsing History/Settings - How many days have you told IE to keep your history files? Set this option to 0 days if you want all your history files deleted on exit.

Try turning Options/Content/AutoComplete off.

Went into options / content, and unticked browser history.
