"When looking at the previous entries in the ""A word or phrase in the file:"" field, move the selection to a word and as you do, hit Delete on each selected/highlighted entry. This will remove them one by one without dealing with the registry.

If you want to play around in the registry (Start > Run > regedit), follow the path to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Search Assistant\ACMru

Then proceed to delete all the numbered folders underneath that node.

If you would like to prevent it from saving next time, right-click and select Permissions on the ACMru node. For each group or user, check the Deny box and save."
