Is there a way to permantley stop an icon of a program show on the recent program list that is in the Start Menu?

if you want to block just one program, and allow a few others, i don't think there's a real way to do it. the list is based on frequency--if you use a few other programs substantially more often than the one you're trying to hide, and it gets bumped down far enough, you might not see it.
i'll check the registry later when i've got time to see if there's some sort of way to lock that list.
if nothing else, you might try disabling the 'recent programs' list, and just putting some shortcuts in c:\documents and settings\username\start menu\, on the same level as Programs. this'll put those shortcuts on your start menu.
just don't fall in love with that 'recent programs' deal. i disable mine a long time ago, and then i switched back to the old-style start menu.

I can't think of one - you'll just have to right click and delete it every time. You can turn off the List Recent Programmes facility completely by setting the number to display to zero. Right click the taskbar>Properties>Start Menu>Customise>Advanced.
