 Security MRU-Blaster - remove all traces of recently used files
Here is a small program that will help satisfy even the most paranoid users' unquenchable thirst for privacy. MRU-Blaster will remove the MRU lists that all your Windows programs create. The authors claim it will remove MRU's from over 30,000 locations on your PC. How well does it work? I tried it out and it found over 1300 MRU's on my system. Some of the MRU's were from programs I'd forgotten I had and were almost 2 years old. MRU-Blaster is good at what it does.
Thanks to Shannon at ComputerHelpClub for the tip.

Quote from the website - MRU-Blaster is a program made to do one large task - detect and clean MRU (most recently used) lists on your computer. These MRU lists contain information such as the names and/or locations of the last files you have accessed. They are located ALL OVER your registry, and for almost ANY file type. By looking at these MRU lists, someone could determine what files you opened/saved/looked at, what their file names were, and much more!
