Have you tried just right-clicking on recent items and selecting remove? Seemed to work for me...

Hello MaverickBlue, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Normally in the Start Menu, that would work. However, the OP is referring to tryin to remove Recent Items from the location boxed in red below in the common dialog window (ex: Save As, Open, etc...).
