    Default IE Recently used list

    How can I STOP spybot from clearing my Internet Explorer recently used list?

    You could get Spybot not to scan for usage tracks altogether,if you wish.That would be the easiest way:

    If you're using Spybot 2.4,you'd do that by opening Spybot 2.4,checkmark Advanced User Mode,click Settings(say yes to UAC,if applicable),click the categories tab,then rightclick somewhere in the window to the right and select Spyware Scan Only.

    I did as you recommended and it seemed to work and do exactly what I wanted.
    For what it's worth, it appears that just "unchecking" the check mark to make the change works the same way as doing it via the right click method.
    Thank you very much for your assistance.

    Thanks, it seemed to work. I should tell you that it reset ALL recently used files including Excel and Word.
