  1. I can confirm that the bug still occurs. Some of the favicons still disappear.
  2. Please check the following thread: https://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=48688&p=285717
  3. @mta: Thanks! JFYI: It still occurs with CCleaner 5.33 and Firefox 55.0.2. The option "Firefox: Internet History" manipulates the files "places.sqlite" and "favicons.sqlite". (You can see that on their file dates.)
  4. Can a mod move this thread to "CCleaner Bug Reporting" please?
  5. Sorry, I was wrong. The Firefox bug with the cache files is just a part of the problem. WebHD is absolutely right: CCleaners option "Firefox: Internet History" makes most of the favicons disappear! (CCleaner shows no files and 0 kB.)
  6. Yes, an exception for the file types *.sqlite-shm and *.sqlite-wal helps. (The bug affects all opened database files, not only the favicons.) It is correct that Firefox deletes those cache files on closing, because prior to that Firefox transfers the contents into the database files. Unfortunately, sometimes Firefox 55 closes without doing that.
  7. Firefox 55 added a new database file for the favicons (favicons.sqlite). Therefore, you have to visit every bookmarked website again to get the favicons back. CCleaners option "Firefox: Internet Cache" deletes the cache files (favicons.sqlite-shm, favicons.sqlite-wal) of this new file. After cleaning the cache many favicons are gone again. Edit: This is a bug in Firefox 55. Firefox usually transfers the cache into the database file and then deletes the cache files on closing. But the new Firefox 55 doesn't do that sometimes.
  8. Great! I'm glad I was able to help.
  9. Ok, thanks for the clarification. As far as I know, the problem occurs only if Windows refers to drivers in the windows.old folder. Using CLEANMGR (= "Disk cleanup") should be safe.
  10. I think they can't really fix the issue with the folder "Windows.old". Therefore, I hope they disable that option. I recommend to use Windows "Disk cleanup" to remove the old Windows version. If there are some files left after cleaning, you can boot Windows in Safe Mode and use "Disk cleanup" again.
  11. I guess you have to untick: Cleaner > Windows > Windows Explorer > Network Passwords. Credentials are stored in the Windows Vault. And CCleaner deletes the Windows Vault if you enable "Network Passwords"!
  12. Winapp2.ini additions

    Isn't necessary because %AllUsersProfile% is equivalent to %CommonAppData%. They are both variables for the path "C:\ProgramData".
  13. Winapp2.ini additions

    (Note: .rmi = [wix Files*]) My suggestion for merging [Windows Installer Temps*], [sourceHash Files*] and [wix Files*]: [Windows Installer Temps*] LangSecRef=3025 Detect=HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer Default=False FileKey1=%WinDir%\Installer\MSI*.tmp-|*.*|REMOVESELF FileKey2=%WinDir%\Installer|*.tmp|RECURSE FileKey3=%WinDir%\Installer|SourceHash{*};wix{*}.SchedServiceConfig.rmi
  14. Winapp2.ini additions

    FileKey2 is equivalent to [wix Files*] FileKey3 is equivalent to [sourceHash Files*] FileKey5 should be enough, and it's safe. FileKey4+6 are not really needed. (And FileKey6 could be possibly dangerous.)
  15. Sadly, I don't know why this happens on your system, but you can try to customize the installation: Click on "Customize" (below the blue "Install" Button), then click on "More" (also below a blue "Install" Button) and check the path, respectively enter "C:\Program Files\CCleaner" as the correct path.
  16. Winapp2.ini additions

    Is FileKey11 correct? FileKey11=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_*\AppData\User\Default\Indexed DB\|*.edb;.*jfm*;.jrs;*.log Shouldn't it be? FileKey11=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_*\AppData\User\Default\Indexed DB\|*.edb;*.jfm;*.jrs;*.log
  17. [Issue] Outlook passwords will be deleted

    Do you have those entries? Please copy the following line: REG QUERY HKCU\Software\Piriform\CCleaner >%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\cc.txt Open a "Command Prompt" and paste the line into it. Press "Enter", and on your Desktop appears a new file called "cc.txt". Open the file, copy its whole content and paste it here.
  18. [Issue] Outlook passwords will be deleted

    Did you try this? If you are using Exchange the passwords are stored in the Windows Vault. You can check that: Open the "Credential Manager" ("Control Panel" > "User Accounts") and you will find entries starting with "MS.Outlook" or "MicrosoftOffice". CCleaner deletes the Windows Vault if you enable "Network Passwords"!

    I guess you have to untick: Cleaner > Windows > Windows Explorer > Network Passwords.

    That's good to hear. Missed posts: #6269, #6278, #6285, #6286
  21. Winapp2.ini additions

    If you check the Data Usage before the cleaning, some of the files are locked. And it seems that they are cached in the memory. It works after a reboot. But you have to wait 2-3 minutes before and after using CC. Otherwise some files will be locked or reappearing.

    It's in the winapp2.ini file already! > [sRU Monitoring Traces*]
  23. Winapp2.ini additions

    Cutting off the last digits sadly doesn't work.
  24. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for your fast reply and the update on GitHub.

    Are you sure those changes are working? I think something went wrong.
