Adobe Flash Player settings.sol
Posted 18 October 2007 - 05:04 PM
I'm not sure if this is necessarily a bug, but probably more of an annoyance. I have noticed that CCleaner clears the settings.sol file created by Adobe Flash Player. One of the settings that is stored in this file is the "Automatic Update" feature for Adobe Flash. I typically disable this setting, especially on lab computers, so that new versions of Adobe Flash don't automatically try to download. The problem is that CCleaner deletes this file. I'm not sure why it would do this. I could see a purpose of removing it on other website, but not the main file.
I know that the problem can be fixed by unchecking Adobe Flash Player under applications, but this removes the other cleaning of Adobe temporary files. Maybe there would be someway to prevent this file from being cleaned by default. I know I could add an exclusion, but then I would have to add that everytime I install CCleaner. I guess I'm just failing to see the purpose of cleaning that file.
This is the file:
%userprofile%\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash Player\macromedia.com\support\flashplayer\sys\settings.sol

Don't PM me for advice or help! I'll only ask you to read forum rule #15.
Old versions of CCleaner can be found here on FileHippo.

either you have included it or are using an old winapp2.ini
DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.
Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)
ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.
