windows clear run dialogbox history after a disk change shows invalid results

As this took a few hours to find, it is worth a post here.

This history is not to be confused with the runMRU history which is apps that have been run, this is the AutoComplete history.

IE/CONTENT TAB/Delete Autocomplete History

As with most versions of windows some of the actual settings for it live in the IE menus.  This is one of them.

Edit: AutoComplete in the Run box is set in (of course) Internet Explorer’s settings (Content Tab / AutoComplete): there’s a button to Delete Autocomplete History. If that doesn’t work, you could try turning AutoComplete off, rebooting, and turning it on again.
