... won't turn off. See screen caps. 

What else do I need to do to stop it?

Thanks

So... it's been nine months and multiple releases, but this PITA is still negatively impacting my sanity. My stock agency wants a zillion keywords per image, so having a majority of my entries auto completed WRONG burns up a lot of whatever lifetime I have left.

As a workaround while waiting for this to be fixed, try deleting the Helper.lrdata folder (Windows) / file (Mac).  See here for details:

The unwanted auto-completes may start slowly coming back, and then you could delete Helper.lrdata again (ugh).
