Click Tools, Options, General, and set the size of Recently Used List to 0.  However, remember, that a savy user can reverse that setting to anything from 1 to 9.  The 9 most recently used database files for Access are automatically stored in:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Access\Settings - as MRU1 thru MRU9.  The size setting just tells the system how much of that list to show.  I suppose you could empty each of those entries, by using RegEdit - but that is only for the knowledgeable user.  Before trying anything with RegEdit, make sure you have a safe, current, and secure backup of your mdb.

This looks like it's good for word, excel, and powerpoint. Do you have one for Access?

BTW, I don't have 2007, so I am using A2003 to 'guess' the outcome for A2007.  I see from the reference is says to click the Advanced tab, however, the size option in A2003 is under the General tab.
