    What has to be done for deleting frequent list from Windows Explorer on Windows 7?

    When I pin ‘My Computer’ to taskbar on my PC upgraded to Windows 7, the frequent list appears on Windows Explorer. It is a privacy issue as a guest to my system can easily find out which all programs have already used by looking into the list. How can I clear off this list?

    Go to bottom right part of the desktop and locate the ‘Start’ button. Right click on that button afterwards and wait until a menu pop up on the screen. Then, navigate through that menu and click the ‘Properties’ option. This will bring up ‘Properties’ window on the screen. Make sure that the ‘Start Menu’ tab is already selected on that window. You can then find two options under the ‘Privacy’ section. Clear off the check boxes next to these options by clicking on it. After that, press the ‘Apply’ button resides at the bottom part.

    To disable the windows explorer from displaying detailed accessed programs list, do the following :

    Go to : start > right click on it > properties > privacy > clear the checkbox adjoining thw two options> apply.

    This should deter windows explorer from showing the list.
