    I have been having a weird issue with Office 2007 ever since switching to Windows 7. For some reaons, the recent documents keep getting erased every couple of weeks. I clicked on the office button and verified that recent documents is not grayed out or set to zero. Does anyone know why they are getting cleared out automatically or how I can fix it?

    Hi there,

    Sounds like a Windows issue as opposed to an Office issue (just to clarify). Do you have any kind of cleaup wizard going on? That would be the first place I would check. Check your settings (should be able to right click your taskbar and selecting properties) and let us know what they are.

    I checked and I don't have any kind of clean-up wizards running.

    Zack,

    You led me to the solution. I use Ccleaner and I checked the settings and noticed that I didn't uncheck "Office 2007" from the cleaning list. It was Ccleaner that was deleting my recent documents. I unchecked Office 2007 and now I have no issues. Thanks for rattling my brain a bit!
