  1. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thank you for the info. I found out that it depends on the installation type. On the first setup screen you can click on "Advanced" and choose the "Installation type": "Install per user" (default setting) uses "%LocalAppData%\Vivaldi\Application" and "Install for all users" uses "%ProgramFiles%\Vivaldi\Application".

    That's correct, because GitHub uses the Markdown format (.md not .txt). Workaround: You can copy and paste the readme text, instead of downloading the .md file. Thanks!

  4. Change Avast Install default

    This registry key prevents that Avast will be offered again (with the next update). https://forum.piriform.com/topic/51681-avast-hidden-install/?tab=comments#comment-295038

    I can confirm this behavior. It seems that the TRIM function has a little bug. I think Winapp2.ini will fix this soon. No need to worry. Wildcards are working flawless with CCleaner.

  9. 1) The option is still there (please check the screenshot). 3) The CCleaner installer offers Avast, not McAfee. (And the CCleaner installer always offers Chrome if it is not installed.)

  11. Yes, this would be a strange accident. But you wrote that you don't see a boot logo or HDD access. That's why I assumed that the BIOS initialization fails.
  12. That sounds more like a hardware or BIOS failure.
  13. Winapp2.ini additions

    Winapp3.ini: IMHO the entry [Useless File Extension *] should be used with "Analyze" only. It would be hard work to make this entry safe. The entry [Windows 10 Useless Files *] seems to be wrong: The path "%ProgramFiles%\WindowsApps\Microsoft.CloudExperienceHost_*\" doesn't exist; it should be "%WinDir%\SystemApps\Microsoft.Windows.CloudExperienceHost_*\". But the sub-folder "media" doesn't contain *.mp4 files. We can correct the path and rename the entry to "Windows Apps Media Files". (Or because the files don't exist on your system also; maybe we can remove the entry then?)
  14. Winapp2.ini additions

    The entry was removed by request: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/32310-winapp2ini-additions/?page=234&tab=comments#comment-277438. I was not happy about that also: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/32310-winapp2ini-additions/?page=234&tab=comments#comment-277444. That's just a mistake; all entries should have Section=Dangerous. I can't find any information why this entry was removed from Winapp2.ini. (It seems that the folder isn't used by Windows anymore. On my systems the folder is empty always.)
  15. Avast Hidden Install

    I checked the registry and found the following key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\AvastAdSDK\". If I delete the value "LastOffer" the Avast offer shows up again.
