To manually remove the URL's you will need to perform a a registry modification. 
"Internet Explorer keeps track of each URL that you type in the
address bar as a convenience to save you from typing the next time
that you visit that site.  However, any user that uses your computer
can find out what addresses you typed in as well so some may be
interested in clearing the address bar addresses.  Just clearing the
browser history will not do this as a registry modification is needed:
1.	Click on Start, then Run. 
2.	Type regedit in the box provided. 
3.	In Regedit navigate to
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Typed URLs
4.	Then just delete all of the keys that list the URL's you no longer want to see.
editor's note: Clearing the recent documents history from start menu
properties will clear this list as well."
