Right click the Taskbar, select properties, select Start Menu tab
Untick the Privacy tickboxes - Store recent items in start menu and Store recent programs options and they'll clear the items

That was for Windows 7, for XP you right click the Taskbar, properties, click the Start menu tab, select Classic Start Menu then the Customize button - in there is a Clear button - click this and XP's recent items will be cleared...
