    Yes, thanks for the hint.

    Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/662b2951e644649b9be3b6d5ce8beb747794ca61 Winapp3.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/f13dd8fff2289c27001138c1f9f53978d6f78214
  4. Winapp2.ini additions

    I have compared your custom entries with the Winapp3.ini and have revised or added the entries.
  5. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thank you for your quick reply. Sure, we can name the entry [CyberLink Media Cache *]. And many thanks for your revised entries.
  6. Winapp2.ini additions

    Since we are trying to avoid duplicate Keys, I would suggest that we add a separate entry and remove the Keys from all CyberLink entries: [CyberLink Common Cache *] LangSecRef=3021 Detect=HKCU\Software\CyberLink Default=False FileKey1=%AppData%\CyberLink\MediaCache|*.*|RECURSE RegKey1=HKCU\Software\CyberLink\DSSharedMediaInfo\SharedInfoCache RegKey2=HKCU\Software\CyberLink\MediaCache\Data4 RegKey3=HKCU\Software\CyberLink\MediaCache\Thumbnail4 RegKey4=HKCU\Software\CyberLink\MediaCache5\Data5 RegKey5=HKCU\Software\CyberLink\MediaCache5\Thumbnail5

  9. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thank you very much for your fast replies.
  10. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thank you for your fast reply. Ok, then I will change the FileKeys of the entry [Internet Cache *] as mentioned. (This will include the .ldb and .log files from "Default".)
  11. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for your clarification. This 0000X.log file is also a database file. But we could change the FileKeys, as mentioned in my other post: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/32310-winapp2ini-additions/?page=298&tab=comments#comment-301811. This should work, because the other subfolders of "User Data" do not contain LevelDB files yet. Is that ok for you? Yes, after the installation the profile folder name is "Default". However, if you add an additional user, the profile folder name for that new user is "Profile 1" (and that also adds a folder named "System Profile"). If you are using the guest mode, the profile folder name is "Guest Profile".
  12. Winapp2.ini additions

    I think SMalik means that he wants to protect the profile folder, because there are other (not profile) folders that could contain usual log files (*.log). My suggestion would be to rename the existing entry to [LevelDB Logs *] and add a new entry [Logs *] with ExcludeKeys for the profile folders: FileKeyX=%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*|*.log|RECURSE ExcludeKeyX=PATH|%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\Default\|*.* ExcludeKeyX=PATH|%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\*Profile*\|*.* (As far as I know, Google Chrome names the profile folders "Default", "Profile X" or "XYZ Profile".)
  13. Winapp2.ini additions

    We cannot add the *.log files because all the *.log files are not usual log files. They are important database files! (I don't understand why Google chose this file extension for an important database file!?) The usual log files are only LOG and LOG.old. Please check the links provided by Winapp2.ini. The *.ldb and MANIFEST-* files are also database files. But if you are 100% sure that this database only stores traces, we could remove all database related files from the folder, e.g.: FileKey14=%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\*|*.ldb;*.log;CURRENT;LOCK;MANIFEST-*;Network Persistent State;Origin Bound Certs (If you want to clean a LevelDB, you should always remove all related files.)
  14. Winapp2.ini additions

    Are the RegKeys 1-4 really useful? I never had this problem. Or should we split the RegKeys into separate entries like [MS Notepad *] and [MS Notepad Window Size*], because not everyone always wants to reset the window size?

  16. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thank you very much for this important note. Yes, if the entry breaks the update function, it should be moved to Winapp3.ini.
  17. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for your fast reply. Winapp2.ini updates: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/83d58d505f25fee9c1937e7b76e9587372038a83 https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/7207c52f72cbb7405ebab3a0c158d8d057ff0fe0
  18. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thank you for your revised and new entries. Own entry? Or should we add the FileKey to [Windows Subsystems *]?
  19. I think you misunderstood the post from Nergal. If you have checked "MyappName" at least once, CCleaner ignores the "Default=" value and uses the stored user settings instead. You can delete these user settings in the registry: - Close CCleaner (also Smart Cleaning, if enabled). - Open "regedit" and navigate to "Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Piriform\CCleaner". - Delete the entry "(App)MyappName". Now CCleaner should respect the "Default=" value. The "Default=" values are only used for the preselection. If you have ever (un-)checked a cleaning rule, the "Default=" values are overwritten with the stored user settings. That is the desired behavior.

  21. Winapp2.ini additions

    It is in Winapp2.ini already: [Auslogics Registry Defrag *]. If you additionally want to delete Registry backups, we could add this to Winapp3.ini. Or did you have an issue with the Winapp2.ini entry?
  22. Issue with Chrome portable databases

    The issue with the cleaning rule Chrome [Logs *] should now be resolved. Now the rule only deletes usual informational logs and not important database files anymore. (If you update the FAQ you should add the rule Chrome [Extensions Databases *], because this rule resets all extensions.)

  24. Strange! Only an older version of CCleaner had an issue that prevented disabling "Smart Cleaning". Are the checkboxes under "Smart Cleaning" still unticked? You could check if there is a startup entry for CCleaner under "Tools" > "Startup" > "Windows" and disable/delete it.
  25. Great! I'm glad I was able to help.
