  1. I just cut and paste include/excludes straight into the config ini
  2. is there a way to work in includes/excludes into the filekey ini? all files besides \History, \Preferences, \Thumbnails, and \Plugin Data\ are safe for deletion Include1=PATH|C:\Documents and Settings\StreamlinePanda\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\|*.*Exclude1=PATH|C:\Documents and Settings\StreamlinePanda\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Plugin Data\|*.*Exclude2=FILE|C:\Documents and Settings\StreamlinePanda\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\|HistoryExclude3=FILE|C:\Documents and Settings\StreamlinePanda\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\|PreferencesExclude4=FILE|C:\Documents and Settings\StreamlinePanda\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\|Thumbnails
  3. Small follow-up: All files but \Preferences, \Thumbnails, \History can be removed without a hitch. \Preferences removes the options configuration, \Thumbnails preserves the icons for bookmarks and bookmark toolbars, and \History stores bookmarks. The built-in utility SHRINKS \Thumbnails and \History, presumably to remove the browsing thumbnail cache and browsing history - so in other words, my CCleaner.ini file looks like this Include1=PATH|C:\Documents and Settings\StreamlinePanda\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\|*.*Exclude1=PATH|C:\Documents and Settings\StreamlinePanda\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Plugin Data\|*.*Exclude2=FILE|C:\Documents and Settings\StreamlinePanda\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\|HistoryExclude3=FILE|C:\Documents and Settings\StreamlinePanda\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\|PreferencesExclude4=FILE|C:\Documents and Settings\StreamlinePanda\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\|Thumbnails .. but I still have to run the built-in utility because I don't know how to read these files or modify their contents from a script. Anyone have anything to add?
  4. Write this batch file and replace F: with the drive letter of your flash drive COPY F:\CCleaner C:\CCleaner "C:\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe" /AUTO RMDIR C:\CCleaner /f /q then install the normal version of CCleaner on a hard drive to pre-configure it for .ini stuffs. Once you configured it, copy the CCleaner files to the F:\CCleaner directory. I do this all the time at work
  5. I've personally never had a problem with it on my home computer, been doing check all fix/delete for months now, but there have been people that I know personally as well as reports on these forums and such of the registry cleaner interfering with stuff. I go through the entries manually on my business computers for that reason. So you do take a chance by just deleting all every time that something's gonna break, but if you do system restore points for your Windows drive or registry snapshots or something of the sort then I say you're good, even if it's not the "official" thing to say. EDIT: Might be relevant to add, most of the complaints I've heard have been from Windows Vista users. Might be ironic, might have a rhyme or rhythm, I don't know
  6. Hi popotes, welcome to the forum about Google Chrome, see the topic here. And about the data records, I'm not sure if MFT modifying would be too safe Also, this should go under the Suggestions forum.
  7. I have this batch file on my business network [mostly made of computer labs; its a university] called Autorun.bat: @ECHO OFFschtasks /delete /tn Autoclean /Fschtasks /create /sc onidle /i 180 /tn Autoclean /tr "//networkserver/backgrounds$/CCleaner/autorun.bat" /ru "domain\labuser" /rp "password"START \\networkserver\backgrounds$\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe /AUTOEXIT The \\networkserver\backgrounds$\CCleaner\ directory on the network is a hidden folder for running CCleaner and has all of the CCleaner-related config files and a typical CCleaner install [not the portable]. I mostly use the schtasks recreation ability of this batch file because the lab computers have varying frequencies of use, and some classes last for more than 4 hours. The main thing I did with CCleaner was set it to remove everything that's not a part of the hard drive image we use at the uni by using a massive include/exclude list that excludes every folder and shortcut that is supposed to be there and includes every directory on the hard drive [very useful for removing games and game shortcuts without going through privilege limitations]. So the batch file lets me configure how often it runs by modifying the batch on the networkserver, lets me configure the erased directories from modifying the config ini files on the network server, and lets me update by downloading new versions and replacing them. This batch is deployed on at least 200 workstations, so I needed a remote management solution that could be deployed with remote scripting :-) Hope this helps someone out there
  8. I like the idea of grouping/selecting by item type in the registry scan results, there's always so many issues of the same kind whenever I do a reg clean and I always have to go through all of them
  9. Hello, The directory that the temp files are kept is in %userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default. The only two relevant files in this root directory are \Default\History, which has bookmarks in it, and \Default\Preferences, which stores preferences. It may be good to keep the \Default\Plugin Data\ folder as well but I have not experimented What I do know is that the majority of files are just cache and will restore themselves upon startup. EDIT: Scratch what I said above Chrome has a built-in deletion utility which erases all files but the following: Current Session ~~useless? Preferences ~~settings Web Data ~~probably usage stats? Thumbnails ~~icon cache, bookmark images get distorted when this gets erased Archived History ~~useless? Cookies ~~useless? Visited Links ~~useless? History ~~stores bookmarks
  10. Hello Jam, You mean that you keep CCleaner open while you use your computer? For the most part, I just use /AUTO shortcut parameters to run it whenever I feel the need. I'd recommend making a shortcut pointing to "C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe" /AUTO , with the /AUTO extension at the end making CCleaner stealth run whenever you'd like it to run rather than making it stay on as you browse as an idle task, then putting the link either on your Desktop or Quick Launch bar. Cheers
