If you've ever looked through a memory dump and noticed the following registry key getting modified, here's my take on what it's doing.
It appears each time a folder is accessed in a Windows operating system, it records that folder in the BagMRU registry

And was able to read the following values
Which would seem to me to indicate that a folder named login_scripts was accessed.
NirSoft has a nice utility called ShellBagsView that allows you to view these values.
