    MRU-Blaster is great!!

    Can you please add the capability to clean Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Acrobat Reader's mru? Thanks!

    MRU-Blaster cleans Adobe Acrobat Reader's MRU, but not Adobe Acrobat's MRU.

    Hmm, which MRU are you refering to exactly?
    I'm a little confused, I know adobe offers "more than just the reader"

    I believe Jay is referring to the Adobe Acrobat MRUs.

    Adobe Acrobat is the commercial product that allows the creation of PDF files. The Reader is a freeware product that just allows everyone to view them.

    Unfortunately, I'd need someone with Adobe Acrobat to tell me where the MRUs are located in their registry (as I certainly don't have the money to buy the full version, and there doesn't seem to be a good trial).

    Best regards,

    Here is the Adobe Acrobat reg keys:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ADOBE\Adobe Acrobat\5.0\AVGeneral\cRecentFiles]
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\5.0\AVGeneral\cRecentFiles]

    The first is the full Acrobat product. The second is just the reader. These 2 keys can be deleted by MRU-Blaster as Acrobat will recreate them everytime a file is opened. Thanks!!

    If I zipped the Adobe5 program that I have and sent it to you -- would that help? o_O

    I use Adobe all the time almost everyday for my research projects - I have not been able to find the 'manuel' config to keep the darn program from keeping all the MRUs -- it really totals up after a while. :(

    Version 6 of Acrobat/Reader is out, and the version number seems to be recorded in the registry entry text.

    I hope this doesn't make your job more difficult, Javacool.
