ZoneMaps in XP registry and password
Posted 29 February 2012 - 10:27 AM
There are a couple of feature requests I have for CCleaner.
Is it possible for CCleaner to have a registry setting which would check and delete the keys within the
Within Windows XP registry, a listing of all sites the computer has visited is located within some of these registry keys.
Also under the individual users, such as
And all the other HKEY_USERS under S-1-5, that may be on the individual computer, -20-, -21, -22, etc....
To totally clean a computer of any previous activity, these Domain Listings should be deleted.
The examples above were for a Win XP system.
On a Win7 machine, some of these locations may be under the registry of TypedURLs or DOMStorage, etc..
2. Is it possible to have a password option within the Options/Advanced Tab.
Something along the lines of having the Option, to password protect the Registry tab and or the Cleaner tab, or no passwords at all.
Plus make it sticky so you dont have to enter the PW multiple times during a single session.
2a. If password protection is possible, can the password be encrypted within the registry?
Such as how it is being done at:
Thanks for maintaining such a fine product.

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.

Some of those locations you list I would think would completely wipe out restricted websites people have on purpose placed into Internet Explorer to block, and surely also disrupt anti-spyware/anti-malware software such as SpywareBlaster.
Yes, I did that once, had no idea what I was doing, and messed up the system. Don't remember the details, but it was difficult to fix. You are wise to ask first.
Pssssst: ... It isn't really a cloud. Its a bunch of big, giant servers.
