Application History

For me the only thing that bothers me about this feture is WMP and VLC all have a Recent tab easy accessible with a single click and you can see what someone has watched.

Can I turn this future off?

Hi thescreensavers,



I am not sure about VLC, but for WMP the procedure is as follows:
  1. Open WMP.
  2. Click Organize and then Options...
  3. Select the Privacy tab.
  4. The options you require are listed under History.

In the Privacy box uncheck "Store and display recently used items....."

I disabled application info and application update in services.msc
And now I am so screwed. I can't even open services.msc, I can't install an update, I can't run updates and I can't re enable anything because I can't get into services to do it. Please don't say system restore because I disabled it. If you say get a mac, then yes, I agree!:D
