    [W10] Delete executed programs list from registry.


    Hi!

    I would like to delete the list of programs my PC has executed. Not the start menu recent program list, but the complete one. I'm using a program called "Executed programs list", from Nirsoft, that tells me which programs have been executed and when, but doesn't allow me to delete the registry entry associated. CCleaner hasn't been completely helpful (only deleted half of the list). The program searches data from the following registry keys:


    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\MuiCache
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Compatibility Assistant\Persisted
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Compatibility Assistant\Store
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\MUICache


    I've also deleted those keys manually, except the ShellNoRoam one, because apparently doesn't exist in my registry, to no avail. What am I missing? Is the ShellNoRoam key elsewhere? Is there any program I can use to completely wipe this information?

    Only Nir Sofer knows

    Seriously, R-Wipe and Clean might be able to dig deep enough.
