Disable "History" in the run dialog box

Pretty much the title, I would like there to never be any history there. Is there a way to accomplish this?

Any history where?
Where do you not want and history stored?
What kind of history are you talking about?
What dialog box?

Yes, this can be done. The way that I do it is to change the permissions on the RunMRU registry key so that it is read-only for all accounts (including system). Are you sure that you want to mess with the registry?
