I am trying clear all websites on my work computer. But when I go through normal steps of clearing cache I can still go to my browser and start to type in WWW.B and the website I thought was gone auto fills in how can I get rid of this so I can not be traced? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hang there, Explorer or Mozilla?

Explorer: Right click IE

goto: properties

click: ''privacy'' tab

click: ''autocomplete'' button

click all three and ''clear forms'' & ''clear passwords''

.........

That seems to have worked. What else can I do to make sure my employer can not back track anything to find what web-sites i have been on?

Your employer can easily set up the company gateway to log all web traffic. You can't erase that without access. The only way to ensure your privacy is to make a secure connection to a trusted proxy BEFORE you browse. Of course, your employer may be curious about all the secure traffic to an off-site machine, but it's somewhat rare for someone to watch things that closely.
