In order to aquaint myself with the registry in MS Windows, I wrote a short program.  This program removes the Most Recently Used entry for various programs.  I have you the souce code in case you want to extend it for your use.

Here is the C# source code to CleanUpMRU.cs
Here is the download to

Another thing I was thinking of doing it to allow it to removed entries from the registry to files which are no longer present.  A third thing I wanted to add was the ability to update moved files based on their path, e.g suppose that you moved things from one drive to another.  Then this program should update the links.
I was thinking of making this a Windows (not a Console) application with a GUI, so that you can type in some entries as well.
