First of all I'd like to say a big Hello to everyone as this is my first post here. I've had a quick look around and this looks like a great forum... can't believe I've not come accross this until now. :)

So, my problem is with the start menu in Windows 7 x64. There are no recently used programs displayed on the far left column it's just a blank white space.

I've done some searching and most solutions advise me to right click the start menu and look in the Properties--> Customise menu and check the 'Number of recent programs to display' has a number in the box to the right and then I should see the list populate in the start menu.

This however is not the case, the number is the default (10) but nothing shows up in the start menu. I've also attempted to 'Use Default Settings' but to no avail...

If some bright spark knows what I'm doing wrong I'd love to hear from you.

Many thanks,

Mike
