    I am fairly new to NT platform and have a question about the registry. Is there a way to disable the registry from recording what is saved? For example, the following hive saves information about each type of file saved. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ComDlg32
    I know the keys can be deleted, but is there a way to disable a list from being made?

    Yes smarac, but doing it in there , is only relevant to that user account.

    Best is to do it through where it says and it clears it for all users :)

    Sorry guys, I'm loged as Administrator, I searched through registry and only found the suspicious key EMPTY, no subkeys under...
    Is this normal ?

    Or is this already Fool's Day ?

    hahahah no Daemon , this is 100% legit

    Are you opening ComDlg32 and not seeing any subfolders ?

    Are you sure you followed the correct registry path - double check

    it will be there, just follow the path exactly :)

    mines empty too when i read the article i checked it and there were a few files so i rebooted and they were purged maybe because i have my internet history set to 0 days?

    I also found mine empty.
    I believe this is due to the setting that clears the MRU on shutdown. In ItweakUI it is 'clear recent documents on shutdown' This applies to the current user only.
