To clear the MRU list for Find and Replace, do the following:

1. Click the Start button and select Run. Type regedit. If your are using Vista, click the Start button and type regedit.exe in the Search box.

2. In the registry editor, expand the HKEY_CURRENT_USER section in the left pane.

3. Expand the Software, Microsoft, Expression, and Web Designer sections.

4. Select the FindMRU folder.

5. In the right pane, under a key named (Default), you will see several keys with numeric values. The first key is 0, the second is 1, etc.

6. Delete the desired search(es) by deleting the corresponding key(s). Only delete the keys with numeric values, NOT the (Default) key!
