I have accumulated many old IP addresses in the drop down list for Remote Desktop Connection.  How do you delete these so the list is accurate and shorter?

Same general question for managing any other drop down lists.

    Actually if you use Ad-Aware (Current Version) this is very easy to do...

    Download and run a scan, once complete go to the "Negligilbe Objects" tab and look for

    "list of recent systems connected to using remote desktop / terminal services"  

    Check that along with any spyware that it finds and click Next and click OK to remove the objects.


    Hope it helps
