    Winapp2.ini updates: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/e770f8e96da2e2146eb393e0c64818989e73ed7a https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/4688b19a2be53effa49e30064b42c1b9a6fc6808

    I'm not sure if people will understand something like "Office Hub" if the displayed name of the app is still "My Office"?
  3. CCleaner Beta v5.48.001

    The new Beta looks good, but I found a little bug on the "Privacy" page: If you left-click a second time (anywhere), some parts of the text just disappear. You need to change the language to German to see the bug. And still not fixed: crashing in Windows Safe Mode (boot option 4)...

    Thank you for your renewed revision. Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/e285b8012e7e849512ad96cc5210331b0c823dee Thank you for your information.

    @SMalik: Before we get caught in an endless discussion , I revised the entry [Microsoft Edge *] again. Now it matches exactly with the files shown on your screenshot. If the entry is ok for you now, please test it. And could you please test the new Chrome entry [Logs Old *] also? Any idea for a better entry name? I will wait for your reply before updating the Winapp2.ini. Thanks!

    Thanks for testing and your reply.

    No, the "policy" is that backups should not mixed with other files and that they should have their own entry always. Please check the Winapp2.ini and you will find many backup entries. The community decided not to include backups of security programs (and things like registry cleaners), because that could possibly damage important system functions. Please see siliconman01s reply also. We don't use those (winsys.ini) LangSecRefs because the entries don't appear under the correct section in CCleaner (e.g. tab "Windows", section "Microsoft Edge"). Unfortunately, they appear at the very bottom of the tab "Applications", what people don't expect. And you also would have doubled sections.

    Edit: Before answering, please see my latest post. Thanks. The changed entry doesn't remove more files as before! It still doesn't remove the files "spartan.edb", "spartan.jfm" and "LogFiles\edb.log"! I just changed the pattern of the FileKey, therefore the ExcludeKeys aren't necessary anymore. The bug was caused by removing the file "edb.chk", that's why I changed the pattern of the FileKey. Summary: The entry removes exactly the same files as before, but additionally protects one more file. If you compare both versions you will see that also! This is more precise and removes the same (respectively less) files...

Now the "edb.chk" file doesn't get removed anymore and it may be not correctly synced with the other files. But this should occur only once.

    Ok, I hope I found the problem. It was a strange interaction between the "DBStore" cleaning and CCleaners own entries "Session" and "Set Aside Tabs". Could you please test this new version of Winapp2.ini: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/4ec7fb3015146eae459c33b0ad8ba809edb59c83/Winapp2.ini If the problems are gone, I will made it public. Thanks again!
  12. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for your fast reply and your help. I made some tests on another computer and was able to reproduce the issue now, but only once. I hope I will find the culprit, otherwise we have to remove the "DBStore" cleaning again.
  13. Winapp2.ini additions

    The Chrome issue should be clear. This can be fixed by just adding the ExcludeKeys again. It seems that there are still Chrome extensions that need the ExcludeKeys. The Edge problem is weird. I don't think it is caused by the new "UrlBlock" or the "Recovery" FileKeys. And the old "DBStore" FileKey and ExcludeKeys were used for a long time. Can you please check if your trimmed Winapp2.ini includes the 3 ExcludeKeys? And that the spartan.edb file doesn't get removed? Thanks!
  14. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for your fast feedback, too. Unfortunately, siliconman01 reports a problem with a Chrome extension. Therefore, we have to add the ExcludeKeys to the entry [Logs *] again. Suggestion: Should we move the *.old cleaning into a new entry, e.g. [Logs old *]?
  15. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for your fast feedback. Unfortunately, I can't reproduce this problem. This should only happen if the spartan.edb file gets removed, but the file is protected by an ExcludeKey. (The "DBStore" FileKey and ExcludeKeys were used for a long time previously, without any problem report.) Not good, then we have to add the ExcludeKeys to the entry [Logs *] again.

  17. Winapp2.ini additions

    Sorry, but I didn't define that "policy". The community decided not to include such files from security programs! Feel free to start a survey on whether the community wants to include the definition backups in Winapp2.ini again. (BTW I use that FileKey in my custom Winapp2.ini also.)
  18. Winapp2.ini additions

    Correct, the entries for cleaning old definitions of "Microsoft Security Essentials" and "Windows Defender" are in Winapp3.ini already. I opened a pull request for all revised entries and suggestions: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/pull/301. If no one objects on GitHub, I will merge it on Wednesday.
  19. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for the hint! I don't use Chrome, therefore I can't test it. I will wait 2-3 days before updating Winapp2.ini, because maybe someone will object. I can confirm this. CCleaner can't remove the files.
  20. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thank you for your revised entries. The entry [Logs *] should remove those .old files already: FileKey23=%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\*|*LOG.*;Log;*.log;*.old|RECURSE
  21. CCleaner forced start at startup

    Why didn't you just update to the latest version? The "bug" is fixed already.
  22. I can confirm this bug! (Workaround: add HelpImproveCCleaner=0 to ccleaner.ini or the registry.)
  23. CCleaner Beta v5.47.6700

    Like nukecad has described already: CC disappears without any error message as soon as "Analyze" or "Run Cleaner" reaches 100%. JFYI: This doesn't happen when using "Safe Mode with Networking" (boot option 5).
  24. CCleaner Beta v5.47.6700

    Thank you for the new Beta programme. I can confirm that context menu and command line cleaning are working again! But still not fixed: crashing in Windows Safe Mode (boot option 4).
