Recent Programs not remembered in XP Home

Recommended Posts

I recently ran the latest version of CCleaner and now my Recent Programs aren't being remembered. I've looked through the forums and gone with all the suggestions (turning off Other Explorer MRUs, Start Menu Shortcuts & Menu Order Cache in the Cleaner, and unchecking Start Menu Ordering in Registry), but I'm still not getting a list of Recent Programs. I have the ones I always use pinned, but I don't want to do this with every program I own - how do I get it turned back on?

Welcome to the forum barnkat.


If checked, clear the box for User Assist History.


Cleaner > Windows > Advanced > User Assist History.


Restart your computer.

Right click on the start button and select properties > customize and check the number of recent programs to display then click OK > OK.

Open a program like CCleaner, then check the list of recent programs in the start menu. Open another program then check the list again.


Any luck?
