My Recent Documents not showing files

I have installed Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate and use it frequently.  However none of my files appear when I click "My Recent Documents" in the start menu.

How can I activate it?  I've never had this problem before on numerous PCs running XP.

I went into Start Menu Properties and despite "List my most recently opened documents" being checked I clicked on the button "Clear List", created a file and it then showed up in "Recent Documents".

However, after half and hour the item has disappeared and the list states "(Empty)" again as it did before!

Do you some sort of cleanup service running? The cleanup programs I've used tend to like emptying the recent files entries.

I purchased NIS 2010 Performance Pack incl. Norton Utilities last week.  When I ran the utilities program it apparently found >800 issues with my regsitry that I asked it to fix.

Not only do I have a faster running notebook (that was an issue itself) but the Recent Documents are now listed.  I will see how it goes over the next couple of days.
