previously I was able to open a document in word or excel by going to open and start typing the name of the file and it would rember the files and bring up the remembered list of files based on what I will be typing for the name of the file. I ccleaner and some other security tools and now when I go to open a file it doesn't bring up a list when I start typing the names of a file

That is because ccleaners clears
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\File MRU registry. Word returns recent file list from this registry key

Check  / Uncheck the options from the CCleaner's Windows Tab to choose what entries to remove / keep as per your requirement.

if I uncheck the option to clear the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\File MRU registry. Will it start rebuilding the list from scratch again or do I need to change something else.

I'm unclear or don't see the mru registry after i go into the registry ?? That file isn't listed in the word folder in the registry.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\File MRU registry
