Windows 7: deleting search history - wordpad I think

deleting search history - wordpad I think

Sorry if this is the wrong place to put this. But I've been trying to figure how to delete the wordpad search history. The problem isn't the "most recent file list" but the browsing list. See attachment. I want to do this manually without installing any extra programs. Any help is appreciated. Btw I'm not quite sure that it's wordpad since the list popped up again when I went to add the attachment.

I got it! I opened the registry and went to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\

I then deleted anything with MRU in the name.

Deleting history
I use "history" to revisit a session but someone has started deleting it all the time, there are several in the house using the computer. Is there any way I can "lock" or make it inaccessible by any chance? Can one disable the Ctrl/Shift/Del function???
