Windows 7: 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.

Thanks for your reply, but I found another way which did what I wanted

Start Menu>Properties

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