recent documents list
When opening Word, the "recent documents" list does not appear. I followed
instructions in the "Options" menu, but the appropriate box is dimmed. So I
can't check it to enable this feature.

I have recently purchased a computer with Windows 7 Professional and am using
MS office 2007. After transferring to the new computer, all of my recent
documents (in all MS office software) are erased each time I shut down the
computer. I have searched everywhere I can think of to correct this, but
have not found the solution. I am also using Norton 360 Premier, if that is
the problem. Does anyone know where I would go to correct this and allow for
my recent documents to remain available after I restart the computer?

Any suggestions as to how to fix "My Recent Documents"? No new documents add
to the folder and it remains persistently empty. I get an "Access denied"
message when attempting to go to customizing the Start menu advanced tab.
Are you Right-Clicking on the Start Button and then selecting Properties
from the list?
If you select Properties then You need to select Customize from Start
Menu Tab. Then from Advanced Tab you should ensure there is a TICK next
to "List my Most Recently Opened Documents".

Reset the list to whatever you like.

Recently upgraded to Office 2007. After I activated a few Add-ins in Excel,

which basically renders "My Recent Documents" useless since it happens every
time I start Excel. Any idea how to correct this issue? These add-in files
never appeared like this when using previous versions of Excel. Also, they
do not appear in "Recent Documents" within Excel.

...Recent Documents Disappear
Office 2007 has been running fine for 18 months with Vista. Last month
the "Recent Documents" list began disappearing after a reboot of the
computer. Just exiting Excel or Word didn't cause the problem. Using
Excel Options/Advanced or running the Diagnostics did no good.
I wonder if this isn't some kind of Registry screw up, but will specific
instructions to fix.
Any help is appreciated.
Usually this behavior is the result of the user installing some
privacy/security software that wipes/erases recent history entries.
