Strange behavior in "Recent Docus" folder


New Member
I've been encountering some strange behavior in my Vista "recent Documents" folder ever since the last time I cleared it. Ever since then, it seems to be filling up with every document I've opened since then, but items are not "clearing" as time passes - instead, the list is just growing indefinitely. Also, only the first 15 items in alphabetical order (from that growing list) are shown.

Even after I disabled and then reenabled the Recent Docs feature (from right-clicking the Start menu), the folder automatically repopulated with the same huge list that was in there before!

I'm running Vista 32-bit Home Premium, by the way.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.
