how to change recent document location



How can I change the location where Word saves the recent document list?

I use McAfee and have it set to do a file clean-up of temporary files once a
week and after it runs I lose the list of recent files in all my office
programs, Word, Excel, Access. I have tried to 'pin' the documents but this
does not keep them from being deleted in the clean-up.

In the older version of Word I could change the location of my recent
documents but it seems in Office Word 2007 there is no way of making these

Well, naughty MacAfee for ignoring the pinning; does it not have any options
for what it 'cleans up'. AFAIK you can't change the location but they are
held in the registry in key:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word\File MRU
