Windows 7: Clear Jump Lists in Windows Explorer Only?

Clear Jump Lists in Windows Explorer Only?

I would like to find an automatic way to clear jump lists for Windows Explorer only that would not entail having to go to %appdata%\microsoft\windows\recent\automaticdestinations and deleting them manually, one by one, since they are threaded through with jump lists for other Windows programs.

Better yet, I would like to prevent jump lists from even forming for Windows Explorer, while still allowing them to form for my Office apps like Excel, Word, etc.

Is there any way to accomplish this?
