  1. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for the new and modified entries. Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/6c134ef7668f627b24bbfcc95e32fdbc4b4680a8
  2. Winapp2.ini additions

    Unfortunately, Piriform never updated the manual, so the manual still only mentions Mozilla-based browsers. But it also works for Chromium-based browsers. Correct, the section "Google Chrome" in CCleaner is responsible for all Chromium-based browsers at the same time. It is not possible to clean each of them individually. If you put only the file Winapp2.ini in CCleaner's program folder, only the entries of the file Winapp2.ini will clean the Brave browser. However, if you want a complete cleaning, with the built-in entries of CCleaner, you have to add the "CustomLocation1" in your ccleaner.ini.
  3. There are already some threads on this issue: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53697-cookies/ https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53571-ccleaner-does-not-see-or-delete-cookies-anymore/ Maybe this will help: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53697-cookies/?tab=comments#comment-305366

    The entries are listed under the section "Google Chrome", there is no separate section "Brave Browser". The entries always clean up all installed Chromium-based browsers at once. You should also 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

    CCleaner's already built-in Site Preferences already cleans that exact file, at least in Firefox ESR Portable v60.6.1esr. That's right, thanks. After using the build-in entry, the date (and size) of the file changes. Unfortunately, the file will not be deleted. Question to all: Should we rename the entry to [Site Preferences *] and still add it for those who want to make sure that all traces are really removed? Your opinions are welcome.
  6. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for the entries. In my tests the built-in entry "Firefox - Session" already cleans this folder completely.
  7. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for the revised entry. Winapp2.ini updates: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/3cde3abef95e59a5dbbf193e8c7c7e7d01f0cef3 https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/30f6dc2c3e544c384887c09d87f17ea622140a75 https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/a82bfb3616910b685514ec439ece079b225fb999

    Thanks for the update. I tested the extension and the Winapp2.ini entries [Logs *] and [Internet History *], formerly [History *], do not damage it. We fixed the entry [Logs *] some time ago and it now only removes usual logfiles. But I can confirm that the built-in entry of CCleaner [Google Chrome - Session] damages the extension. As a workaround, you can exclude the following folder in the CCleaner options: C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extension State\ Please report this bug under "CCleaner Bug Reporting": https://forum.piriform.com/forum/8-ccleaner-bug-reporting/. Thank you!
  9. Winapp2.ini additions

    Referring to the entry names you are using an old version of Winapp2.ini. Please update to the latest version.

    Thanks! Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/c8c6096cc27fa9e79360f2ac07cc8ef3b69c3dc5
  11. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks! IMHO we should continue to use [Xbox *], as the other apps are actually only hidden "sub-apps" of the Xbox app. (And if we add more "sub-apps" in the future, the name will be far too long.) https://forum.piriform.com/topic/32310-winapp2ini-additions/?page=302&tab=comments#comment-302515
  12. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for your reply. This should work (Detect does not require "Wow6432Node"): [Auslogics Registry Defrag *] LangSecRef=3024 Detect1=HKCU\Software\Auslogics\Registry Defrag Detect2=HKLM\Software\Auslogics\Registry Defrag Default=False FileKey1=%AppData%\Auslogics\Registry Defrag\Logs|*.* FileKey2=%AppData%\Auslogics\Registry Defrag\Reports|*.* FileKey3=%CommonAppData%\Auslogics\Registry Defrag\*.x\Reports|*.*
  13. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thank you, but is this entry really safe? I guess you're only using the MCT to create an ISO file, right? Because if you read the many articles about these folders, it seems you also need these folders for a Windows rollback if you have used the MCT for a Windows upgrade (or if Windows has upgraded itself). For example: https://www.howtogeek.com/268667/what-is-the-windows.bt-folder-and-can-you-delete-it/. There is also an entry in the Winapp3.ini: [Old Windows Installation *].
  14. Winapp2.ini additions

    Ok, thanks for your quick reply.
  15. Winapp2.ini additions

    Would "DetectFile=%CommonAppData%\CanonBJ\IJPrinter\CNMWindows" possibly work or does this path/folder also exist on your system?
  16. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for the modified entries. Winapp2.ini updates: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/7c2346239aa471742b0ee2b666d4db2b9f59e4d6 https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/17093d77d5537bb0879f720ec5cfcebbb5e40e72

  18. Winapp2.ini additions

    I tested CCleaner with the browser Brave Beta and everything worked as expected. The browser is detected and cleaned by the Winapp2.ini entries: And if you add the CustomLocation, CCleaner cleans up with its built-in entries:
  19. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for the hint! IMHO it is better to use an older version of CCleaner instead of moving the old entries back to Winapp2.ini. If Piriform fixes the problem with one of the next versions, people would think that the cookies management still doesn't work, because the old entries always remove all cookies.
  20. Winapp2.ini additions

    Same as for Chrome cookies: Does CCleaner's cookies management have any problems? CCleaner should be able to open and clean these cookies files without removing the files themselves (at least this has been possible for years). The entry [Stored HSTS Cookies *] was also moved to "Removed entries.ini": https://forum.piriform.com/topic/51568-cookies-visible-to-ccleaner-but-not-to-firefox-settings/?tab=comments#comment-299024 Please try to check the files "Removed entries.ini" and "Winapp3.ini" before posting new entries. Thank you very much.
  21. Winapp2.ini additions

    Does CCleaner have problems cleaning cookies with the latest version of Chrome? The entry [Cookies *] was moved to "Removed entries.ini" a long time ago. The entry [Extensions Databases *] was moved to "Winapp3.ini" a few weeks ago, because it causes problems with an extension.
  22. Winapp2.ini additions

    Question: I noticed that some entries use the same path for error reports: "%LocalAppData%\CrashRpt". Shouldn't we add a separate entry for this path and remove the duplicate FileKeys from the other entries? [CrashRpt Error Reports *] LangSecRef=3024 DetectFile=%LocalAppData%\CrashRpt Default=False FileKey1=%LocalAppData%\CrashRpt|*.*|RECURSE (CrashRpt is an open-source program library for sending error reports.)

  24. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thank you for the new entry, but *.tmp files are already covered by CCleaner (Google Chrome - Internet Cache): The old entry is in the file "Removed entries.ini": During this check I also noticed that the entry [HTML5 Storage *] can also be removed, because the "File System" folder is already covered by CCleaner (Google Chrome - Internet Cache), including the removal of the folder itself.
