What you wish can be done within Word or Excel.

Open Word and Excel. Select Tools -> Options -> General. Uncheck box by Recently Used File List.

Heres another way you can remove them (The way the guy said to do it above was good to)

Try this

ctrl alt -
use the top minus not the one near the numeric pad, You will see a -- click file and select the file you want removed.

Window Washer will wash away all your dirt.

Alternatively you can use Window's built-in disk space cleaner (START > PROGRAMS > ACCESSORIES > SYSTEM TOOLS > DISK CLEANUP) to clean out junk from your hard drive. I know this doesn't fix your problem but it should help tidy up your system. There's also a way to schedule this utility by running "cleanmgr.exe -sageset:01" once set, run "cleanmgr.exe -sagerun:01" to re-run the job. You can schedule this job to run whenever you like in Scheduled Tasks.
