Adding the Event Viwer Logs ?
Posted 10 June 2013 - 12:10 PM
Does anyone have a way of actually adding this to cleaner ? through winapp2.ini or something ? I do periodically check my event logs however I find it annoying to have to clear them manually one log at a time (system, application, security, office, powershell) when I run ccleaner I wish to clear everything with as few mouse clicks as possible or at least have the option to do so.

The logs are just so useful for troubleshooting.
However the devs read all posts.

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.

and to be fair.
I agree with both of you, since most people are not the most computer savvy having such a thing as a default option or even a checkable option in the main release would be problematic.
Being decently computer savvy I am looking to add the option of clearing the event viewer for my own personal use. As usually I like to read the logs, then clear them and watch for new activity if I suspect a problem.
also there is a lot of annoying and useless information in the event viewer such as office logs etc... so if someone knows how to add this to ccleaner it would be helpful.

and stipulate the event log files under Options / Include

I think you should be able to clear the logs with winapp2.ini if you stop the service, but you may be better off with a batch file.
@echo off net stop eventlog rd /s %WinDir%\System32\winevt\Logs net start eventlog
