  1. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for the new and revised entries. Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/56f81edca62b5fb4653d0a1a5801e6fbc52f8fc4

    Thank you for pointing that out. If the entry deletes the Autofill data, then we better add the warning again.
  3. Winapp2.ini additions

    But it was once available and not everyone always buys an update/upgrade. That's why we should keep it. Many other entries also support older versions of programs.

    Thanks for the research. The entry needed some minor corrections: RegKey13+14 are duplicates of RegKey5+6 and ExcludeKey6 is a duplicate of ExcludeKey2. The sorting is not alphabetical (triggers errors in WinappDebug). Revised entry: [Windows ShellBags *] LangSecRef=3025 Detect=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows Default=False Warning=This will reset folders size, view, icon or position settings to default and remove traces of the folders that do not exist anymore.

    I think you forgot to remove "Software\Classes\" from RegKey1+2 and ExcludeKey1, right? I would suggest to keep the removed ExcludeKeys . As far as I know, they only exist on older versions of Windows (and also depend on 32/64 bit).

    Many thanks for all the replies and the new or revised entries. Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/24609673dd246f5756aca501cb0817c28ad990b3

    The entry [HTML5 Store *] cleans the folder "\storage" already. Except for the folders "\storage\default\moz-extension*", because Firefox stores all settings of all installed add-ons (extensions) there. Deleting these Indexed Databases resets all add-ons to their default settings. For example, if you use uBlock Origin, you will also delete all downloaded filter lists. ("3647222921wleabcEoxlt-eengsairo.*" stores the settings of an add-on that was silently migrated by Firefox 66. "1671402671ueBglaorcokt0SCeahc.*" stores the uBlock Origin filter lists.) The Indexed Databases created by websites ("\storage\default\http*") are always deleted, even by the built-in entry "Cookies". [HTML5 Store *] ... FileKey2=%AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*\storage|*.*|RECURSE ... ExcludeKey2=PATH|%AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*\storage\default\moz-extension*\|*.* ... The previous entry [FlashPlayer SharedObjects *] and the built-in entry "Cookies" seem to deliberately exclude this location/file. It seems that the file "settings.sol" stores global settings for the Flash Player in this location: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/32310-winapp2ini-additions/?page=242&tab=comments#comment-280836. (If there are really other files than "settings.sol" in the folder after the cleaning, we also could simply keep the entry [FlashPlayer SharedObjects *].) [FlashPlayer SharedObjects *] ... FileKey13=%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\*\Pepper Data\Shockwave Flash\WritableRoot\#SharedObjects|*.*|RECURSE ...

    Thank you very much for your quick reply and checking the built-in entries. Just to be safe: We could then remove the following entries (= move them to "Removed entries.ini"), right? [FlashPlayer SharedObjects *] [Local Storage *] [Omnibox Shortcuts *] [Quota Manager Data *] [Anti-Phishing Data *] [DOM Store *]
  10. Winapp2.ini additions

    Is the following entry correct? (It is your entry, please let us know if it should be revised or removed. Thanks.) [Stored Explorer View *] LangSecRef=3025 Detect=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows Default=False RegKey1=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|0 RegKey2=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|1 RegKey3=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|2 RegKey4=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|3 RegKey5=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|4 RegKey6=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|5 RegKey7=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|6 RegKey8=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|7 RegKey9=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|8 RegKey10=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|9 RegKey11=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|10 RegKey12=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|MRUListEx RegKey13=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|0 RegKey14=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|MRUListEx RegKey15=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\BagMRU|0 RegKey16=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\BagMRU|MRUListEx
  11. Brave Web Browser

    You can add the browser to CCleaner using one of the following methods: https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/advanced-usage/ccleaner-ini-files/how-to-clean-user-data-from-non-standard-mozilla-browsers CustomLocation1=CHROME|path_to_user_profile: https://forum.piriform.com/search/?q=CustomLocation1=CHROME Example: CustomLocation1=CHROME|C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\User Data\Default

    Thanks for the replies. I'm not sure we've misunderstood each other. Therefore a little more detailed: Please use the built-in entries I mentioned and check the modification date of the files before and after cleaning. You will see that the modification date changes, so that CCleaner at least opens these files and accesses the content/database. There are some other built-in entries that just clean the content/database instead of deleting the file itself. That's why I ask the community for their experiences with these entries. If we don't get enough information, we'll leave it as it is.
  13. Winapp2.ini additions

    Question to all: The files of the following entries are also cleaned by CCleaner. Since I don't have Chrome in my daily use, I can't tell if CCleaner deletes the contents completely or only partially. It would be great if you could share your experiences and recommend which entries possibly could be removed. Many thanks in advance. Chrome/Chromium: [FlashPlayer SharedObjects *] ... FileKey13=%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\*\Pepper Data\Shockwave Flash\WritableRoot\#SharedObjects|*.*|RECURSE ... The built-in entry "Cookies" cleans this location. [Local Storage *] ... FileKey13=%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\*\Local Storage|http*.*|RECURSE ... In my tests, this entry never deletes a single file. It seems that "Local Storage" has been switched to Level-DB and the entry is outdated. Edit: The built-in entry "Cookies" cleans the "http*.*" files. [Omnibox Shortcuts *] ... FileKey13=%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\*|Shortcuts ... The built-in entry "Internet History" cleans this file. [Quota Manager Data *] ... FileKey13=%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\*|QuotaManager ... The built-in entry "Cookies" cleans this file. [Web Data *] ... FileKey13=%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\*|Web Data ... The built-in entries "Internet History" and "Saved Form Information" clean this file. Firefox: [Anti-Phishing Data *] ... FileKey2=%LocalAppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*|urlclassifier3.sqlite ... Mozilla stopped using and supporting this file a long time ago. It seems that the entry is outdated. [DOM Store *] ... FileKey2=%AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*|webappsstore.sqlite ... The built-in entry "Cookies" cleans this file.

    Many thanks to all for the new and revised entries. Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/496f3191fe63d674ca3f3365294f885b307c3fdf
  15. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thank you for your quick reply and clarification. Okay, then we will split the entry. Unfortunately, CCleaner only deletes this file for the few Chromium-based browsers that CCleaner directly supports. If you need to use "CustomLocation", CCleaner does not delete the file. Therefore, we should keep these FileKeys.
