Recent Places folder on Windows 7 is not working.

Hi there,

The recent places folder in my Microsoft explorer does not show all my “recent places”, it only shows ‘system security’, ‘hardware and sound’, and ‘Network and Internet’.

The ‘recent items’, on the start menu, however works fine.

Hopefully there are some intelligent people on this forum who would be able to tell me how to fix this!

Would you know what Services need to be running in order to 'Recent Places'?

I am running Windows 7 32 bit.

Thank You.

This is on my mom's laptop. It has a fresh Win 7 install on it about four or five months old. It has very little 3rd party software installed on it. Avast, Office 2007, Firefox, Irfanview, and her HP printer/scanner driver are about all I can think of. A couple of weeks ago she created a new...
