Windows Automatically clears recent list

So the titles says it all
My recent lists like my recent folders,recent music played and all of those things are getting cleared automatically at random times and this has been happening to me for 1-2 weeks now and i noticed it
i don't know what is causing this to automatically clear my recent items before this use to happen i used CCleaner to clear my recent files and stuff and been using it for months and months now i want to know what is causing this and will really appreciate the help.

Thanks guys!

Hi SparX534, welcome to the Forum.

Have you inadvertently set CCleaner to run whenever the computer starts.

To check that, open CCleaner & select Options & then in Settings make sure the "Run CCleaner when the computer starts" is not ticked.

No, I have not. It's unchecked.
