My recently used programs list has disappeared from the start menu. I have tried everything i know to get it back.I have 2 systems both run xp pro, both have windowblinds installed. I have tried disabling windowblinds, still no good. The second system has no probs with or without windowblinds running. All i can think is maybe a registry entry is missing.Does anyone know which entries control this function.

Any ideas anyone.
thanks

right click the taskbar -> property -> startmenu -> change -> advanced
(could be slight different, translating from dutch ;))

have a look at the dialog, maybe you will find it there.

On the general tab of Start Menu properties-customize dialogue, you can specify how many programs are displayed in the most frequently used programs list. This is not by chance set to zero?

If the value for NoStartMenuMFUProgramsList is set to 1 change it to 0.

Registry Value:"NoInstrumentation" 0x00000001 (1) Prevents the system from remembering the programs run, paths
followed, and documents used.

No other ideas at the moment.

This is weird, my second system shows the recent used programs list. After searching its registry for "nostartmenumfu........"it does not have this entry anywhere. Both systems have the "noinstrumentation" entry set at "0". Its not a serious problem so it looks like i will have to live with it.

thanks for the help.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
