Stop files being added to recent list

I am currently using Office 2000 on a Windows 2000 platform.  Each time I open a Word document a Shortcut to the file is stored in the 'Document and Settings\user\application data\microsoft\office\recent' directory.  Is there anyway of stopping this from happening?

With kind regards

Sure - Tools/Options and from the General tab, deselect Recently Used file list.

Oops - that's for office 2002...may still be a simliar setting however.
You might also delete the Recent folder and create  a File with the same name...

No it's the same for Word 2000.  Tools/Options - General tab, uncheck Recently used file list

I'm not sure if it's the same in 2k...it might be the option to set  recently view files to "0."  I know i ran into this difference before on some office programs.
