I'd like to be able to track what programs are run on my pc and how often. I know the information must be stored somewhere for the "frequently used programs" list. But I can't find it. Any ideas?

I'm using XP pro.

MRU stands for "Most Recently Used" and is used for tracking the files opened bu a certain program, to save the user going through the process again. As far as I know, Windows does not store this information, but you can check the Event Viewer.
