Clearing autosaved entries from Run line

When one enters a command, filename or web address in the Run line, Windows saves the information via an autocomplete feature. Can you tell me how I can clear these saved entries and disable the autosave functionality in the Run command? Thanks in advance!

Yes, XP Professional on one machine. I'm running 7 Professional on another (so if Window 7 does the same thing and you can guide me on both that would be terrific!) Thank you.

To clear the Start Run Auto Saved entries on Windows XP:


Right Click the Taskbar

Click Properties

Click Start Menu Tab

Click Customize Button

Click Advanced Button

Click Clear List Button

Click Ok a few times


That should clear everything that's in the Windows XP Start Run history.
