GPO - Windows 7 Start Menu program list

How do I disable the option to
1. Store and display recently opened programs in the start menu
2. Store and display recently opened items in the Start Menu and the Taskbar

I would like to control this via GPO.
Regards

>Create and Link a New GPO
>Expand Preferences
>Expand Administrative Templates
>Expand Start Menu and Taskbar

in your group policy editor, click on user configuration, policies, administrative templates, start menu and taskbar.  There are tons of things you can control from within there.
