In a way this goes in the increasing security forum.

Ok, this works for windows.
To hide your recent documents and recent programs opened, right-click on start, click on properties, click on customize, click on advanced tab. You will see the recent activity area, click on clear recent activity, then uncheck the box that says list most recently opened documents. I have mine set to only list one or 2, so that when people snoop my computer, they only see one or 2 things. When the box is unchecked, the recent documents tab doesnt show, so people cannot see your docs and look in them.

Hope this helps some of you.

nothing a little CTRL+ALT+DEL does not fix. that is common practice in the corporate world. when leaving desk hit WINDOWS+L (Lock) and then walk away grab your coffee and walk around the shop for 15 mins (since everyone else has smoke breaks!) then go back and hit CTRL+ALT+DEL and enter password. no one is the wiser to what is running on system and what have you. Pfft When in doubt Clear all your history files. This takes no time at all. and with what you put I can still FIND your recent documents. just not in the Start menu! Good try though Wink
