Is there anyway of erasing the 'history' of past commands in the run dialog in the start menu?? I know that several software packages can clear it for you, but was wondering how it can be done manualy.

It would require a registry edit which is not for the faint hearted. Do a search for 'RunMRU'.

I find that the clear recent documents button seems to do the trick, in Windows 2000 anyway but not sure about others.

I mean the one where you right click the task bar > Properties > Advanced(tab) > Clear. That does recent documents and the run box history at least.
