Yes in principle it should be  the same solution. I only con tell you how 
to do it under uunix/Linux but i do assume if you are using windows 
version it is the same or at least simular.

in your home directory you find the following files:

Seek your word/phrase inside them and correct or delete it.
If the word/phrase is deleted the next time aspell should complain about 
it. If the word/phrase is edited/corrected aspell should complain about 
the occurence of the former version.

If your word is found inside the .pws file you have to adjust the last 
number on the first line to reflect the proper number of words which is

<total number of lines> - 1

as  the first line is not counted.

Further have in mind that it might be possible that Kevin or somebody 
authorised by  him may change the layout of the files mentioned in future 
versions of aspell.
hope that helps if you are using aspel version >= 0.50
