Clearing Address Toolbar history

OK situation is this: I have searched and searched both registry and harddrive but cannot find where Windows stores the data used in the Address Toolbar (in the Taskbar, NOT in IE).

I know that Start->Settings->Taskbar & Start Menu->Start Menu Programs->Clear will remove all the entries but I want to be able to do this manually (as part of a system-wide cleanup program)

Does anyone have any idea where the info is stored?

Many thanks
