List of Files Not Available in Apps

By Shesca ·
I am using WindowsXP,SP2, and until a few days ago in programs I use, there was a list of the most recent files opened under "Files" in the menu bar. In Excel, the task pane listed my most frequently used files. I looked the problem up in the MS knowledge base, and it said I can no longer list the files because I make a change in IE6 using TweakUI. I didn't use TweakUI, I did nothing. I have been having small problems like this in the past few months. When I load the Windows CD, it loads some files, then tells me that the CD is not recognized as WinXP CD, so I can't use the repair function. I am unsure what to do now. I never realized how much I rely on those lists.

Check your task bar and start menu properties, goto the start menu tag and clik customise that check your settings aer all good. Your profile could of been wiped out, find the recent folders documnet and check that it is still working. If you ahve claered history in I.E this could of also wiped out your rescent list.
