Windows 7 only gives you three options.
1. Let windows display and manage recently opened programs in your start menu.
2. Tell windows not
to display recently opened programs in the start menu, leaving the start menu, as you say, blank.
3. Tell windows how many recently opened programs to display in the start menu.
If you actually want
programs to appear in the start menu, but you don't
want windows messing with them, you're going to have to locate every program you want to display and "pin" it to the start menu. These programs will appear above the divider line in the menu. Below the divider line are all the recently opened programs that windows puts there. Windows will manage this area on a daily basis depending on which programs you are using most often. Keep in mind, all programs listed above the divider line in the start menu are permanent, pinned items. They will stay there, unchanged, until *you* change them.
Windows will not mess with them.
Everything below the divider line belongs to Windows and windows will modify as it sees fit.
