How to disable user tracking in Windows XP and Vista. Disabling this feature disables customized menus and other features that require user tracking information such as which files were accessed and the times they were accessed.

  1. Hold down the Windows key and press R.

  2. Type regedit and click OK.

  3. Click the plus sign next to HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    then Software
