  1. Winapp2.ini additions

    Unfortunately, I do not know it, because I have never used Xbox apps before. Maybe SMalik can tell us? (And/or we could use an ExcludeKey for this package.)
  2. Winapp2.ini additions

    I think you mean that we should merge all the individual entries into one [Xbox *] entry, right? Do you think we can use the following FileKey for this? Otherwise the entry will be very large. FileKeyX =%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.Xbox*_*\
  3. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks! I also found and fixed that yesterday. Normally we use Proper Case (Title Case) for the names of the entries. IMHO the lower case letter "b" is not so important.

    Question: As far as I know, the servers for the following messengers were shut down some time ago: AOL Instant Messenger Windows Live Messenger Yahoo! Messenger Therefore, the programs are useless without their servers and we could remove the following entries: [AIM *] [Windows Live Messenger *] [Windows Live Messenger Chat History *] [Yahoo Messenger *] [Yahoo Messenger Cache *] Are you okay with that? And do you know any other programs where the servers have been shut down in the meantime and the program became useless?
  5. Files not possible to clean

    For example, the "Windows.edb" file is the Windows Indexing database, and you can only delete it if you stop the "Windows Search" service.

  7. CC Drive Wipe filled up my hard drive!!

    You should have one or more files (and/or a folder) with long apparently random names in C: with a creation date of the wipe and a big file size. If you delete them the free space should be back.

    Strange! On my systems CCleaner removes all font cache files without any permission issues. IMHO it is not riskier than cleaning other Windows related caches, as we will never know what Microsoft will change with the next feature update. Like SMalik, I never had any issues after cleaning the font cache. And I don't think anyone knows the correlations why the FileKey1 caused the boot issue on some systems.
  10. Winapp2.ini additions

    Question: Piriform has removed the font cache entry from CCleaner because it could cause a boot problem (if fast startup is enabled). Should we add the FileKeys of this entry to Winapp2.ini? [Font Cache] FileKey1=%WinDir%\System32|FNTCACHE.DAT FileKey2=%LocalAppData%|GDIPFONTCACHEV1.DAT FileKey3=%windir%\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local|FontCache*.dat It seems that FileKey1 is causing the problem, so we could remove it: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/52857-version-540/?tab=comments#comment-300971
  11. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thank you for your modified entry. Wouldn't it be possible to use "log*.txt"? Or are there any important "log*.txt" files?

  15. Refused To Install Updates

    It's really strange that Piriform still hasn't fixed the installer. The installer could run a simple command before copying the new files: TASKKILL /F /FI "IMAGENAME eq CCleaner*"

  17. PatchCleaner Utility ?

    There is a known conflict with the MSI versions of Microsoft Office. Using the utility breaks the online updates for Microsoft Office. Unfortunately, the author of the utility never fixed this. The Click-to-Run versions of Microsoft Office are not affected.

  19. Winapp2.ini additions

    I think you misunderstood each other about the build-in entry. SMalik meant the FileKey and not the entry itself. I found the correct description of the file: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/32310-winapp2ini-additions/?page=31&tab=comments#comment-203981 I added a DetectOS to the entry now. The folder belongs to Microsoft Office 2010 (14.0). Microsoft Office 2010 creates the folder and the files when you open the "Help". I just re-tested it:

    Thank you for the revised entries. Please use the alphabetical order to avoid errors with Winapp2ool. Thank you! Why should it be removed? It's just the cache of the old "(Office) Help Viewer" and doesn't break anything. The cache is always rebuilt.

  22. Winapp2.ini additions

    I think we can remove the following Chrome entries, because CCleaner cleans the folders by now: [Extensions State *] [GPU Cache *] [Session Storage *] If you find more "duplicate" entries, please report them. Thanks!

    Yes, thanks for the hint.
