So, whats the deal with Most recently used lists? Why does Adaware show it, but not as an immediate threat?

I didn't know that Adaware even showed it!

But it wouldn't be an immediate threat, since it's just links to other files and the links themselves are not actually dangerous. The files on the other end of the link might be detected as a threat, though I guess that depends what they are.

It's a privacy issue - do you want the next user (or a malicious user) to see what documents you just worked on? Nah, I don't care either, but some people might.
