|Just to comment.|
I do not see where commands in ME would relate to XP, or even
should be like ME commands.
In the Command Prompt, ever do del /?, to see how command is written. ???
And I do not see where CMD is needed for a batch.
All this gives me the idea to do ----
Windows key + R
then type C:\Documents and Settings\username\Recent
then CTRL + A
then ALT + F4
Then all is done. The normal method also removes the RUN command drop-Down list.
The normal method is ----
Right click Start,
then Customize... button,
then Advanced tab,
then click "clear list" button at the bottom.
