Ken - like you I have a copy of Notezilla (won it here! Thank you Carl and ConceptWorld!) and love it. RecentX clears itself whenever you clear the MRU menus via windows cleanup (or whatever app - CrapCleaner for example - that you use) so privacy is an issue in the sense that people can access your documents but it isn't really any more insecure than a standard windows installation. In a way, it's almost a security feature because you can SEE what links are being retained in your registry, all in one place. "My recent documents" is a bit hit and miss in this regard in that it reliably displays recent Office docs but is not so reliable in linking to recent non-office files (strangely it's good about zip and exe files - go figure) even if they are contained in MRU entries in your registry. You can also use RecentX to clear them all... I dunno, as I said, I go for ages without even running it (for now have autostart disabled) but will then run into a situation where it is just the ticket. I like it because, as noted above, it places EVERYTHING in one location and organises them as well (tabs for Files, Folders, Webpages, etc.).
