  1. Winapp2.ini additions

    Yes, we might want to think about that. But usually all removed keys or entries are moved to the Winapp3.ini.
  2. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for the new and revised entries. Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/cccdfc0b67f2b5e55cc7e598f2ddf9e2746db5d0
  3. Winapp2.ini additions

    What a strange error! Since the file "Windows.edb" is not really crap (only if you have disabled the service "Windows Search", but this is not the system default), removing the FileKey should not be a problem.
  4. Winapp2.ini additions

    Is the file no longer locked by the "Windows Search" service? Normally, you cannot delete it without stopping the service.
  5. Winapp2.ini additions

    The use of PATH is correct, but also requires the "\|*.*" at the end. Strange, I have disabled Cortana on all my systems (using group policies) and was able to restore it (rebuild those cache files) using the suggested way.
  6. Winapp2.ini additions

    We revised the entry [Cortana *] a few weeks ago because it always broke the search for settings. We fixed that by adding an ExcludeKey for a cache file ("SettingsCache.txt"). But now it looks like the other files ("AppCache###.txt") should not be deleted either. I think we should then exclude the entire folder ("\LocalState\DeviceSearchCache"). (An easy way to restore Cortana: Right-click on the Cortana icon and click on "More" and then on "App Settings". Now click on "Reset" and wait a few seconds.)
  7. I can't confirm this behavior. It works for me. (I also tested it with a file trimmed by Winapp2ool.)
  8. But unfortunately, not without networking. They want to fix it, but it's still not done. https://forum.piriform.com/topic/52593-ccleaner-beta-v5476700/?tab=comments#comment-299569 https://forum.piriform.com/topic/52921-bugs-ccleaner-v5496856/?tab=comments#comment-301268
  9. Avast Hidden Install

    The installer does not offer Avast (or Chrome) for every installation, only occasionally. If the first page is empty, nothing additional will be installed. This is the first page of the installer:

    Thank you for your entries and replies. Winapp2.ini updates: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/191b47035c1058c4d13c193ebdc985b39ed5511b https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/3eaeadc81a19f095c54ac25f5da80a94e608b8e4
  12. Winapp2.ini additions

    Did you disable "Download" (2. Toggle Download)? It is now enabled by default and therefore Trim ignores your local winapp2.ini file.
  13. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thank you for your information and research. I wonder about the entry, because why would anyone want to delete all databases of all installed extensions? Doesn't this reset all extensions? I think we should move the entry to the winapp3.ini. Does everyone agree?

  15. Winapp2.ini additions

    Ok, thanks for the information. We can add a "warning" to the entry.

  17. The offer for Avast is only displayed on the first page of the setup. https://forum.piriform.com/search/?&q=avast install&type=forums_topic&nodes=4&sortby=newest
  18. Disabling CCleaner on Start-up

    Did you also untick all checkboxes under "Options" > "Smart Cleaning"?

  20. Winapp2.ini additions

    No, we clean a lot of files under C:\ProgramData. Search for entries using the variable %CommonAppData% (=C:\ProgramData).

  22. Winapp2.ini additions

    Yes, if you right-click on the balloon icon in the lower right corner, the menu should also display "Open action center". But Microsoft also calls it "Notifications and Action Center", so the current entry name [Notifications *] is ok for me.
  23. Winapp2.ini additions

    It is already in the Winapp3.ini: [Windows Search Cache *]. It was removed in 2013 because it crashed explorer.exe in Windows 7/8 and temporarily removed all Metro apps from the Windows 8 start screen. The revised entry is now only for Windows 10, but since Safe Mode and/or a reboot are required, it would be better if it remains a Winapp3.ini entry.

  25. Winapp2.ini additions

    I fear that people will already be angry that "we" have deleted their credentials for their NAS share. (That's why I don't understand why CCleaner also has built-in entries for passwords. IMHO passwords are not crap.)
