Windows 7: Office 2003 won't retain recent files list

Office 2003 won't retain recent files list

I just installed Office 2003 on my new machine running Windows 7 Home Premium. Because this PC has an SSD, I installed Office on Drive D: with all my other programs.
On my old machine running Windows 7 Home Premium it was installed on the C: drive without any problems.

But now Word and Excel do not retain the Recent Files list after a restart of the PC. It will retain the list while the PC is running, even after closing and reopening the programs.

It is also not remembering the window size, or whether the ruler is on or off.

Any suggestions or workarounds?
Where does Office store the recent files data?

The ruler setting might be there also.

I can't test on a second drive like you have it :-(

Thanks. I think if I can just set a pointer it would be good. I'll look in that key for clues.
