in the Documents and Settings folder, there are several subfolders
under Administrator, Defaut User, etc. called "Recent". Every
thing I do on the computer is recorded in there. If I had other
people using this computer, I'd be concerned about privacy, but I
use it myself. Yet, I really want to shut off that tracking if it's
possible. If for no other reason, everytime I search for a file or
folder, those useless junk links show up if they match the search.
Not to mention just more useless clutter filling my hard drive. I
no purpose for this at all, at least not for my needs.
Is there a way to permanently disable this?

Hope this helps.
Arthur: All my life I've had this strange feeling that there's
something big and sinister going on in the world.
Slartibartfast: No, that's perfectly normal paranoia. Everyone in the
universe gets that.
