Hello

I have a server running Windows 2008 Enterprise....when I log into this box and click Start, I cannot see any programs shorlisted in the box that comes up. I can only see them when clicking "All Programs"

Any ideas? I have rebooted to no avail.

What entries do you have set for this reg key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\ NoRecentDocsHistory

Ususually, it saved as part your profile. Did you logged on using a different user account? It shouldn't be the case but thought of asking that..

Agreed with choward16980 - check for the registry entry mentioned above. It could be that this registry entry is configured in GPO?
