  1. CCleaner won't clean standard user files

    @ Bluefoot & RichardKing: Thanks for your replies. Here is the bug report for the developers: The installer creates a shortcut with wrong properties: The option “Run this program as an administrator” on the tab “Compatibility” has to be unselected! Please fix this bug with the next version. Thank you!
  2. Sorry, but you are wrong. Starting with Windows Vista the "desktop.ini" files also include language references [LocalizedFileNames]. The new recreated files don't include those language references anymore. That's why some of the start menu entries changed their names. CC doing nothing wrong.

    You can only use a name once. Two or more entries with the same name are not possible, even if they are in different sections. Adding Firefox or Thunderbird to the name is the best solution. Because you can't use wildcards (*) in a DetectFile line, there is no other way to detect those add-ons.
  4. Winapp2.ini additions

    No need to apologize. You are working on the winapp2.ini in your valuable free time and missing something can just happen.

    Thank you very much for the huge update! 2 posts were missed: - #2032 (New entry [Microsoft Visio 2010*], warning for [icon Cache*]?) - #2052 (Modified entry [Amsn*]) Thanks again!
  6. CCleaner won't clean standard user files

    I just can say that all my installations I have done uses "C:\Program Files\CCleaner" on a 64 bit Windows.
  7. CCleaner won't clean standard user files

    Ok, I have no more ideas why CC shows this behaviour on your system, sorry. You can check if this behaviour also occurs when you start "CCleaner64.exe" directly out of the programs folder (C:\Program Files\CCleaner). But I think the developers have to investigate the problem.
  8. CCleaner won't clean standard user files

    Thanks for your reply. Did you check the properties of CCleaner's shortcut? ("Advanced Properties" > "Run as Administrator" should be unchecked.)

    @saad2011: Thanks for your reply. New entry:
  10. CCleaner won't clean standard user files

    Did you test it with unselected option “Skip User Account Control Warning”? On my system it works flawless with a standard (restricted) user account.
  11. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thank you for your reply. I just listed the missed posts and didn't check them for mistakes, sorry! Maybe saad2011 can tell us why he added this FileKey.
  12. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thank you very much for the update. Missed posts: #1824 (2 new entries) #1875 (2 modified entries) #1877 (modified entry) #1879 (new entry "NetworkService Temps") #1926 (modified "JDownloader" entries) #1942 (modified entry) Modified entry: Modified entry: Please rename [TuneUp XP*] to [TuneXP*]. And above the entry [Windows Audio/Video (Stats)*] is a blank line missing.
  14. CCleaner won't clean standard user files

    I can't confirm this behaviour. CC starts without a password prompt on my system (Win7 Pro. X64). But I unselect the new option “Skip User Account Control Warning” always. Maybe this option causes your problem?
  15. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for the big update! Missed entries: #1824 Modified entry: Entry with typo: I think you can remove the entry ;[Macromedia Flashplayer*], because it seems that the RegKey doesn't exist anymore.
  16. Winapp2.ini additions

    Strange, iTunes showed this behaviour only after I removed the empty subfolders from the cache folder. That's why the entry doesn't remove the subfolders and deletes the files only. Anyway I think it's better to add a warning line for this special case, instead of removing the entry. I never had problems with QuickTime and iTunes until now. Warning=You have to reinstall iTunes after adding a new windows user account. Thanks for your information. I don't use this entry. So the creator of the entry should comment this please. My suggestion is that entries for deleting setup files should be separate entries always. So everybody will be happy. [Windows Live Messenger Setup Files*] LangSecRef=3022 Detect=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Live\Messenger Warning=After running this, you will not be able to uninstall Windows Live Essentials components without downloading the installer again. Default=False FileKey1=%LocalLowAppData%\Microsoft\Windows Live\Setup|*.*|REMOVESELF
  17. Winapp2.ini additions

    Can you tell us why, please? The "Apple Installer Cache" entry does not prevent updates or an uninstallation. Thanks for your modified entries.

    Thanks for the update. Missed entries / suggestions: #1695 #1690 I found some typos: And does anybody know if the backslash before "Last_Machine_Connections" is correct on RegKey4? Shouldn't it be a pipe | symbol?
  20. Winapp2.ini additions

    Also with Chrome the temp folders for Flash are still the same, so the DetectFile for Flash should be enough. Based on the recent discussion, here is my suggestion for the Flash entries: [Adobe Flash Player More*] LangSecRef=3023 Detect=HKCU\Software\Macromedia\FlashPlayer DetectFile=%AppData%\Adobe\Flash Player\ Default=False FileKey1=%AppData%\Adobe\Flash Player\AssetCache|*.*|RECURSE FileKey2=%WinDir%\System32\Macromed\Flash|FlashInstall.log FileKey3=%WinDir%\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash|FlashInstall.log [Adobe Flash Player Settings*] LangSecRef=3023 Detect=HKCU\Software\Macromedia\FlashPlayer DetectFile=%AppData%\Adobe\Flash Player\ Warning=This will delete all your settings, including saved data from flash games! Default=False FileKey1=%AppData%\Adobe\Flash Player|*.*|RECURSE FileKey2=%AppData%\Macromedia\Flash Player|*.*|RECURSE
  21. Winapp2.ini additions

    You are absolutely right! We can use the path of a FileKey line also for a DetectFile line. Sometimes you don't see the obvious.
  22. Winapp2.ini additions

    I use the same settings. That's why I wrote this previous post: 1711. But I think that most users never change the settings, so maybe the new and more "aggressive" entry could be better. But because we don't know what the majority wants, your suggestion for a separate entry would be a fair solution.
  23. Winapp2.ini additions

    Yes, I know this. But as Nergal wrote already, a bad thing is that the "settings.sol" also contains a complete list of all visited domains using flash! I don't know what is more important here, settings or privacy? If you want to keep your settings you can add this line: ExcludeKey1=FILE|%AppData%\Macromedia\Flash Player\macromedia.com\support\flashplayer\sys|settings.sol
  24. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for the updated file. You've missed few posts / entries: #1695 and #1690. Maybe you can modify the "Flash Player" entry and add a warning message: [Adobe Flash Player More*] LangSecRef=3023 Detect1=HKCU\Software\Macromedia\FlashPlayer Detect2=HKCU\Software\Chromium DetectFile1=%localappdata%\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe DetectFile2=%ProgramFiles%\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe DetectFile3=%localappdata%\Flock\Application\flock.exe DetectFile4=%ProgramFiles%\Flock\Application\flock.exe DetectFile5=%localappdata%\Google\Chrome SxS\Application\chrome.exe DetectFile6=%ProgramFiles%\Google\Chrome SxS\Application\chrome.exe DetectFile7=%localappdata%\SRWare Iron\iron.exe DetectFile8=%ProgramFiles%\SRWare Iron\iron.exe DetectFile9=%ProgramFiles%\Chromium\chrome.exe DetectFile10=%localappdata%\Chromium\chrome.exe DetectFile11=%ProgramFiles%\Chromium\Application\chrome.exe DetectFile12=%localappdata%\Chromium\Application\chrome.exe DetectFile13=%AppData%\ChromePlus\chrome.exe DetectFile14=%localappdata%\RockMelt\Application\rockmelt.exe DetectFile15=%ProgramFiles%\RockMelt\Application\rockmelt.exe DetectFile16=%LocalAppData%\Comodo\Dragon\dragon.exe DetectFile17=%ProgramFiles%\Comodo\Dragon\dragon.exe Warning=This will delete your settings, including saved data from flash games! Default=False FileKey1=%AppData%\Adobe\Flash Player|*.*|RECURSE FileKey2=%AppData%\Macromedia\Flash Player|*.*|RECURSE FileKey3=%WinDir%\System32\Macromed\Flash|FlashInstall.log FileKey4=%WinDir%\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash|FlashInstall.log
  25. Winapp2.ini additions

    Is there a file to detect the built-in Flash if you use Chrome only?
