MRU-Blaster probably cleared the MFU list.
Open MRU-Blaster | Settings button | UNCheck: Windows "Recent" folder(s) |
Save Settings button | Click OK to the popup | Close button |

Program Settings looks like this...

Start Menu Most Frequently Used programs (MFU) list is empty

Clean up the MRU listings using MRU Blaster

To display the My Recent Documents folder on the Start menu:
1. Right-click Start, and then click Properties. Or, if the Start menu is
already displayed, right-click an empty area of the Start menu, and then
click Properties.
2. Click Customize.
3. Click the Advanced tab.
4. Under Recent documents, click to select the List my most recently opened
documents check box, click OK, and then click OK. The next time you click
Start, the My Recent Documents command is displayed on the Start menu.
