How can I disable IE10 from providing "assumed/suggested"

    How can I disable IE10 from providing "assumed/suggested"

    Hi all,

    Let me be clear that the reason I wrote "assumed/suggested" in quotes is only because I don't know how else to describe what I'm seeing. However, please note that the real Suggested Sites feature is currently OFF.

    So what is happening is that, for example, I start to type "js" in the Location Bar and right below it, I see "", then the "History" section and the history URLs that match "js", then the "Favorites" section and the URLs from my Favorites that match "js".

    But what is that top entry? Where did it come from? And there's no section header (e.g., like "History" and "Favorites"), so I don't know where that is coming from.

    So in the case of "js" being typed in the Location Bar, where is it getting that URL from to "suggest" that's the URL I want? Furthermore, how can I disable that part of the list so that I only see History and Favorites which match what I type?

    Is 'Suggesting URLs' ticked in the following location:
    Internet Options > Content > Autocomplete Settings > Suggesting URL's?
