     Updated 12/28/2004 Added the ability to delete all values in a selected node. Also added the typedURLs key and runMRU key 'This Program will read the Recent Doc List located in the registry at: 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\RecentDocs 'This data is stored in a binary format, so we have to read the binary data into 'a byte array and build it into strings. 'As with all of my submissions, I have utilized code found on PSC and elsewhere 'for various functions, but the rest was written by me. 'Special thanks to Kegham, whose Winstartup 2004 project had some valuable code 'for enumerating and walking through registry keys and for some treeview pointers 'and to MrBoBo who also had some very useful code for the registry 'also to David Sykes for his XP style module that i have implemented in all 'of my projects for that XP Look 'once the key values are loaded into the list, pressing delete will delete the selected 'entry from the registry. '

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
