Go to ~/Library/Caches/com.appple.Safari and trash that folder.
(Go to your Finder "Go" menu hold the option key to choose "Library")
Resetting Safari does not clear the cache for some reason... you can file feedback here.

Thanks for the speedy reply.
Unfortunately, this did not clear up the issue.
In looking closer at the drop down box that I get when I use the search/address bar, I noticed that it is pulling search items from my bookmarks folder.
Is there a way that I can restrict the search to the web only?

I don't think you can restrict where is searches, but you can clear your history manually under the History menu, which isn't a full reset.

I think reset Safari/Clear History and Caches is all you can do.
In light of the title of this discussion, just to be sure, you know you can "Clear Recent Searches" by clicking on the little magnifying glass on an empty search bar?

Thanks to all of you for your input.
I will call an Apple rep tomorrow, to see if there is a way to disable the Bookmarks/History part of the Search feature.
If that dosen't work, I will try to encrypt the file.

When using Safari, set it to Private Browsing in the Safari menu. If you hold down the option key while selecting it, you won't have to click the Ok button on the confirmation dialog.
