Windows 7: Info on the AppData/roaming directory tree with use of RogueKiller

Info on the AppData/roaming directory tree with use of RogueKiller

I was running the system cleaning tool Rogue Killer and it stopped at:

Users > <Mysystem > Appdata > roaming > Microsoft > Windows > Recent > (various content)

Things in there are all .lnk shortcut files.

Can these be cleaned out? Does Seven Forums have a cleaning routine similar
to those recommended by other sites or a specific recommendation?

I normally use Malwarebytes plus their specialty Junk Removal Tool (JRT)
and some others.

No viruses here that I know of but I was trying to refresh my cleaners from some
pop up ads.

Other tools such as rootkit TSSKiller etc came up with no malware to report.

Thanks I'll use the guide and clear out "recent."
Unknown if Roguekiller will run past the point of 58% this time. But I'm not a user of the program past "do a scan."
