Deleting file history in MS Word

How do I delete the list of previously opened files in MS Word? I don't think work will be too impressed if they see I've been working on my CV

In Word go to Tools -> Options -> General and untick Recent Used List and click OK
Now repeat to turn it back on again but it should have cleared the list

I thought the files would reappear when turning it back on but it doesn't, thanks.

I think the latest version of Ad-Aware SE will come up with a list of 'Non-critical' threats at the end of a scan. Registry etc settings that include information about file history for various programs. Can't remember the exact terms Ad-Aware uses but you'll see what I mean if you let it scan you're entire disc.

This is all of course useless info if you don't have semi-admin rights and can install programs.
