Erase Auto-Populate history

Guys/Girls,
Is there anyway to get the history of recently opened documents from showing up in the open documents?

Just to verify, we are talking just about the start menu, and not MS Word. Correct?

Click the Office Orb (ie top left of window) > Word (or Excel, or Powerpoint) Options (at the bottom of the window that then opens) > Advanced > Scroll down to Display > Set "Show this number of Recent Documents" to zero > Click OK, and that should do it

Uh huh. I wanted to know if the OP meant MS Word. Guess it's taken care of on both ends!
