    But the entry [TeamViewer *] could remove more files. Maybe this is related to older versions or to special features of the paid versions. Revised entry: Removed "Connections_incoming.txt" from FileKey2/3 (covered by CCleaner already). [TeamViewer *] LangSecRef=3024 Detect=HKCU\Software\TeamViewer Default=False FileKey1=%AppData%\TeamViewer|*.*|RECURSE FileKey2=%LocalAppData%\VirtualStore\Program Files*\TeamViewer|*.log|RECURSE FileKey3=%ProgramFiles%\TeamViewer|*.log|RECURSE FileKey4=%WinDir%\System32|TeamViewer*_Hooks.log RegKey1=HKCU\Software\TeamViewer\Version5|Last_Machine_Connections RegKey2=HKCU\Software\TeamViewer\Version5.1|Last_Machine_Connections RegKey3=HKCU\Software\TeamViewer\Version6|Last_Machine_Connections RegKey4=HKCU\Software\TeamViewer\Version7|Last_Machine_Connections

    Thank you for your reply.

    Question: I found under the folder "%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ShellExperienceHost_cw5n1h2txyewy\AC\Microsoft\Windows" tons of subfolders named with a random number. Each subfolder contains a single .pri file named with a random number also. ("Microsoft.LockApp_cw5n1h2txyewy" and "Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy" contains those subfolders/files also.) Does anybody know if those .pri files are necessary or what function they have?

    I fully understand your concerns. But to be honest, removing an empty folder usually doesn't break anything. There are no reports here that one of those (partially very old) entries causing trouble. If you create a pull request on GitHub I'm sure they will merge it.

    Thanks for checking the entries. But this would be very much work for ROCKNROLL. If the changes are important for you, I would recommend that you create your own pull request on GitHub. And as you mentioned already, you possibly overlooked a few good entries (like AMD/ATI or AVG). And I'm not sure if those changes won't start a debate if empty folder should be removed or not.
  6. New forum look.

    The old links still don't work. Using a RewriteRule should probably fix the issue?

    Thank you for checking! I created a pull request on GitHub.

    Suggestion for [Internet Explorer *]: The entry doesn't include the following FileKey anymore: %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\WebCache|*.*|RECURSE But the folder "WebCache" is still used. Shouldn't we add the FileKey back to the entry? (The folder is a hidden system folder.) Edit: The folder "WebCache" is covered by CCleaner! CCleaner cleans the database, therefore removing the files is not necessary anymore.

    Is that RegKey safe? I checked the key on my system and it contains two entries only, but both are valid paths to uninstallers.
  10. Winapp2.ini additions

    Sorry, but you overlooked it. We can remove the entry [Explorer MRUs *], because it is in winsys.ini already: [Window Size/Location Cache] ... RegKey1=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StreamMRU RegKey2=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams

    Question: Does anybody use "DVDFab" and can tell us please if the detailed FileKeys 3 to 9 are really necessary? Or can we merge them to "%Documents%\DVDFab*\Temp|*.*|RECURSE"? [DVDFab *] LangSecRef=3023 Detect=HKCU\Software\DVDFab Default=False FileKey1=%Documents%\DVDFab*\Log|*.*|RECURSE FileKey2=%Documents%\DVDFab*\SceneData|*.*|RECURSE FileKey3=%Documents%\DVDFab*\Temp\adPixtureTemp|*.*|RECURSE FileKey4=%Documents%\DVDFab*\Temp\MainMovie|*.*|RECURSE FileKey5=%Documents%\DVDFab*\Temp\MediaServer|*.*|RECURSE FileKey6=%Documents%\DVDFab*\Temp\Record\webService|*.*|RECURSE FileKey7=%Documents%\DVDFab*\Temp\ReportCrash|*.*|RECURSE FileKey8=%Documents%\DVDFab*\Temp\updateTemp\adPixtureTemp|*.*|RECURSE FileKey9=%Documents%\DVDFab*\Temp\updateTemp\updateLog|*.*|RECURSE FileKey10=%Documents%\DVDFab\Log|*.*|RECURSE FileKey11=%Documents%\DVDFab\Temp|*.*|RECURSE FileKey12=%Documents%\PcSetup|*.*|RECURSE
  12. The cleaning setting "Old Windows Installation" isn't enabled by default! And if you previously have disabled the monitoring feature, it's also disabled after a version update. (BTW: Restoring the previous Windows version works for 30 days only. Windows clears the "windows.old" folder automatically.)

    SMalik wrote that the FileKey is to aggressive: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/32310-winapp2ini-additions/?page=270&tab=comments#comment-289728. The following two FileKeys should replace the aggressive one: FileKey6=%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\*Cache|*.*|RECURSE FileKey7=%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\*Cache.old|*.*|REMOVESELF But this still covers the folders "ActionCenterCache" and "PRICache". Maybe it is better not to compress the entry and use the previous FileKeys? FileKey=%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\AppCache|*.*|RECURSE FileKey=%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\IECompat*Cache|*.*|RECURSE FileKey=%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache|*.*|RECURSE FileKey=%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\WebCache|*.*|RECURSE FileKey=%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\WebCache.old|*.*|REMOVESELF

    Many entries still have unnecessary trailing backslashes. The trailing backslash after a path consisting of a single %EnvironmentVariable% only are not necessary: e.g. %Documents%\|*.txt We had fixed all related FileKeys in one of the last versions of winapp2.ini. Now there are all back. I think WinappDebug has that test because %EnvironmentVariables% don't include a trailing backslash. Therefore, a path like "%Documents%Folder|*.txt" won't work. The test should check if the %EnvironmentVariable% is directly followed by a pipe symbol and then skip those FileKeys.

    I made some DetectFile tests and found out that wildcards don't work as expected! Work: DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\Test* DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\Te*t1 DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\Test1\program*.exe All other combinations don't work: DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\Test*\ DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\Test*\program.exe DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\*\program.exe It seems that a wildcard works only on the last foldername or filename of a path!
