    I chose "Reset Safari...." and checked every box. Clicked Reset

    It then closed and re-opened a new Safari window.

    I went to at least 3 websites, and it still remembered my log in credentials for those sites.

    Shouldn't those have been deleted? What am I missing?

    At that time I was running 4.0.1 (now 4.0.2).

    Thanks.

    I noticed the same thing in Safari 3. I always just click Reset Safari... about three times to clear everything out and that works.

    KEYCHAIN. That's what you're missing.
    Finder>Applications>Utilities>Keychain Access.

    That seems to the trick. I did it a few times, and also rebooted, now things seem to be cleared out.
