Can't you just manually delete them after you've used them?

Right click on the file and select Delete, or just drag them to the Recycle Bin.

You can find a file's location by going to Start>Search.

Most Recently Used (MRU`S) shortcuts are automatically removed when you run Ccleaner click here Along with all cookies, history etc etc. In Options>Settings you can set it to run at start up.

Start menu/run,type


press return

Select All, delete.

And for IE ;
Tip: You can adjust your Internet Explorer settings to automatically clear the cache whenever you close Internet Explorer. Go to the Tools menu, and click Internet Options. Click the Advanced tab. In the "Settings" box, scroll down to the section labeled "Security," and click to check the box next to the "Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when browser is closed" option. Click OK to finish. This option does not delete cookies, but it will clear your cache of other files when you close your browser.
