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

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.

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.
