This information is stored in the registry, at:

     HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\POV-Ray\v3.7\POV-Edit\Open
     HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\POV-Ray\v3.7\POV-Edit\Recent
     HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\POV-Ray\v3.7\POV-Edit\Older

You'd have to either...

... (A) close POV-Ray, then delete the respective entry from whichever 
of these registry keys it is listed in, ...

... (B) within POV-Ray, close the file, then open and close 40 different 
other files to "flush" it out of the registry...

... or (C) that (but do /not/ use "save as..." for this purpose ;-)).
