  1. AppCompatCache

    Still not sure if it's possible to completely clean that Key then. Thanks anyway.
  2. AppCompatCache

    [Session Manager *] LangSecRef=3025 Detect=HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows Default=False FileKey1=%WinDir%\AppCompat\Programs|*.txt;*.xml FileKey2=%WinDir%\AppCompat\Programs\Install|*.txt;*.xml RegKey1=HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\AppCompatCache|AppCompatCache RegKey2=HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\AppCompatCache|CacheMainSdb RegKey3=HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\AppCompatCache|SdbTime HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\AppCompatCache doesn't exist on Windows XP. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\AppCompatibility is the value under which the AppCompatCache key is stored (duplicated also at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Session Manager\AppCompatibility & HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet003\Control\Session Manager\AppCompatibility).
  3. AppCompatCache

    Sorry for dragging this old thread back up, but the method doesn't work. The new value simply gets re-written with all the previous data (probably what was stored in memory from previous boot up). Question: So does anyone know if it's possible to clear the data in the AppCompatCache value and "start from scratch" as it contains lots of "history" of previous executables.
  4. Cookie Query

    Thank you
  5. Cookie Query

    I was wondering, in Options>Cookies sometimes there are 2 cookies that are similar in the Cookies on Computer list: e.g. internetdownloadmanager.com www.internetdownloadmanager.com When adding cookies to Cookies to Keep list, is it necessary to add both or will adding either suffice? I have a massive Cookies to Keep list, and about 30% are the same site but with www infront of them. Thanks.
  6. Cleaning files in Opera Application Data folder

    They only get created when AutoUpdate is disabled. I'm not going to enable updating to stop them. I did this instead: ssdfp*.*.* And that keeps them at bay.
  7. If Opera auto update is disabled, files with names like ssdfp2896.1.1760381288 & ssdfp4320.1.1475299922 are created in Opera's application data folder each time the browser is exited. These build up over time, each one is unique but always begins with ssdfp. The typical size is 176 bytes but doesn't have a file extension. With each file being unique ,is it possible to create an Include filter so that CCleaner can remove them? Thanks.
  8. lot of unwanted software in download

    The CCleaner update check would take you direct to http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download to download it. So why would you go to filehippo for the download is anyone's guess...
  9. I noticed the Option>Exclude>Add Exclude dialog window has an option to include a Registry Key. Is it possible to have a Registry Key option on the Include diaglog window also? Example: Quite often when updating a program, it's adds itself to Run/start on Windows start up, even if it was previously disabled. An option to clean specifc registry keys when running CCleaner before shutdown/restarting would enable me to include registry entries to stop programs running on the next boot. (It would also eliminate me having to run newly updated programs - occasionally not possible anyway before a reboot has taken place - and checking manually whether a Start xxx when Windows starts "box" has been re-checked). Any thoughts? Thanks.
  10. Firefox Cookie Exceptions Deleted

    Many thanks
  11. Hello. There are some sites I do not wish to store cookies on my computer, so I add them to the exception list in Firefox: Tools>Options>Privacy>Exceptions. But after running CCleaner, the exceptions list is cleaned. I want Firefox cleaning included in CCleaner, but not the cookie exceptions. Is there anyway to stop the exceptions being "cleaned"? Thanks.
  12. CCleaner 4.08 hanging

    I've just installed this version and CCleaner hangs when the cleaning is showing Firefox>Internet History (24% through cleaning). It's hogging 50% of the CPU. I have to use Process Explorer/Task Manager to shut CCleaner down. I went back to 4.07 and CCleaner finishes to 100%. Using Windows XP SP3 & Firefox 25.0.1.
  13. Corel Video Studio X4 & Paint Shop Pro X4

    Hmm... I got the boxed version of VideoStudio X4 from Amazon.co.uk, and PaintShop Pro X4 direct from Corel. I'll try an unistall/reinstall of both programs to see if that helps. Although I only use the Help and product information button occasionally, I cant be doing with things not working correctly. Thanks.
  14. Corel Video Studio X4 & Paint Shop Pro X4

    Hmmm... I've restored the contents of the following folder from a back up: C:\Documents and Settings\MIKE\Application Data\Corel\Messages. The restored Messages folder contains 1408 files within 464 folders - more importantly the Help and product information button is working (for both VSX4 & PSPX4) After running CCleaner, the Messages folder now contains 3 files (each called Message.policy) within 3 folders (540244232_807001, 540226262_810007 & 540222514_410003) and the Help and product information button now does not work. ??
  15. Corel Video Studio X4 & Paint Shop Pro X4

    This didn't work. It looks like some necessary folders/files (i.e. not junk) have been deleted. Wonderful (!)
