Hi Experts,

I have MS Office 2007 running on Windows XP SP3. I have all the latest Office updates as well as Windows updates. Whenever I change the Show Recent Documents setting to anything other than 0 and close and restart the application (Word or Excel for example) and check to see if my change was saved, it isnt - in fact, it keeps defaulting to 0 (zero). Is there something I'm missing?
