This is a Windows 7 system just commissioned.  Classic Shell is installed.

  • Classic Shell has been configured to disable the recently used items area.
  • The group policy has been changed to disable this area.
  • The registry has been edited to reduce the number of items in the recently used list to zero.

Nonetheless, the system is still content to put each recently used program into that list, as shown in the screenshot below.

I have run out of hammers to hit this problem with.  Suggestions on how to remedy the issue will be gladly received.
