How do I keep the command items I have typed previously into the RUN
window's drop down menu.
It seems to clear almost everytime I reboot and I then have to re-type them
again. Do they always clear or is there a way to keep them listed and save
myself soem time?
Thanks in advance!

More about : msconfig

They are placed on the Windows Registry. Open Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) and expand this key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\RunMRU. You will see there all previously typed commands in the Run box. Export the key (Edit, Export) and you will have saved all this data within a REG file.

Well when I rebooted this morning the old MSCONFIG entry from last night
appeared in the Run window...so it appears that the Run entries are NOT
always cleared on every restart.
That is the perplexing part..it seems intermittent..why?

the only time I notice them being cleared is when I clear the IE History,
they seem to be clumpped in w/ them.

Spybot S&D and AdAware will remove MRU's also if you don't purposely exclude
them. I would imagine other spyware and AV products do the same. Do you
maybe have such a program that runs on a schedule or at start-up that might
be clearing them?
Just a thought......
