Default Start | Run Entries

When you click on Start and then Run, and enter a letter ("m" say to run msconfig) a lot of entries appear for you to choose from (previous Run entries!).
I would like to know where I can find ALL of these entries so I can delete them. There are 163 of these entries, and most of them are Web addresses.
They are not under RunMRU in the registry which apparently they normally reside.
I am using Win XP SP1a. And I'm getting a bit frustrated because there's probably a relatively simple solution if I could only find it?

If you click the Start button, select Run, and then type various single letters into the "Open" field, you should see that various letters will cause a drop-down list to appear.

When a list pops up, just press the down-arrow key to select the first one, then hold down the delete key. They'll start disappearing.

Don\'t hate the player...Hate the game...
