clearing address bar history



I just changed to XP from Windows 98. Clearing history
in Internet options is not clearing the address bar of
websites visited before I changed to XP; it does erase
sites visited since the change to XP. Is this
coincidence or is there a connection? Unchecking the web
address search in Autocomplete eliminates that function
but the addresses remain nonetheless. Thanks.
