to clear only the ones you don't want you can use registry editor.

Go to start ->Run, type in regedit.


Delete the ones you don't want and then close regedit.

In reference to robsie's post:

This is a registry edit.
Improper changes to the registry could render your computer inoperable.
Remember to backup the registry, before making any changes.
