  1. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for the modified entries. Winapp2.ini updates: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/7c2346239aa471742b0ee2b666d4db2b9f59e4d6 https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/17093d77d5537bb0879f720ec5cfcebbb5e40e72
  2. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for all replies and revised entries. Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/b3a5205a211b579ef883751bd70e35aa0f404169
  3. Winapp2.ini additions

    I tested CCleaner with the browser Brave Beta and everything worked as expected. The browser is detected and cleaned by the Winapp2.ini entries: And if you add the CustomLocation, CCleaner cleans up with its built-in entries:

    Thanks for the hint! IMHO it is better to use an older version of CCleaner instead of moving the old entries back to Winapp2.ini. If Piriform fixes the problem with one of the next versions, people would think that the cookies management still doesn't work, because the old entries always remove all cookies.
  5. Winapp2.ini additions

    Same as for Chrome cookies: Does CCleaner's cookies management have any problems? CCleaner should be able to open and clean these cookies files without removing the files themselves (at least this has been possible for years). The entry [Stored HSTS Cookies *] was also moved to "Removed entries.ini": https://forum.piriform.com/topic/51568-cookies-visible-to-ccleaner-but-not-to-firefox-settings/?tab=comments#comment-299024 Please try to check the files "Removed entries.ini" and "Winapp3.ini" before posting new entries. Thank you very much.
  6. Winapp2.ini additions

    Does CCleaner have problems cleaning cookies with the latest version of Chrome? The entry [Cookies *] was moved to "Removed entries.ini" a long time ago. The entry [Extensions Databases *] was moved to "Winapp3.ini" a few weeks ago, because it causes problems with an extension.
  7. Winapp2.ini additions

    Question: I noticed that some entries use the same path for error reports: "%LocalAppData%\CrashRpt". Shouldn't we add a separate entry for this path and remove the duplicate FileKeys from the other entries? [CrashRpt Error Reports *] LangSecRef=3024 DetectFile=%LocalAppData%\CrashRpt Default=False FileKey1=%LocalAppData%\CrashRpt|*.*|RECURSE (CrashRpt is an open-source program library for sending error reports.)

  9. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thank you for the new entry, but *.tmp files are already covered by CCleaner (Google Chrome - Internet Cache): The old entry is in the file "Removed entries.ini": During this check I also noticed that the entry [HTML5 Storage *] can also be removed, because the "File System" folder is already covered by CCleaner (Google Chrome - Internet Cache), including the removal of the folder itself.

  11. Winapp2.ini additions

    Based on the modification date of the folder, it looks as if my Windows Defender has never used this folder before. If all the files are just copies of the HOSTS file, I think we could add this to Winapp2.ini. (It's also just a subfolder of "Scans", so there probably won't be any really important data stored there.) FileKeyX=%CommonAppData%\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Scans\BackupStore|*.*
  12. Windows Store App Maintenance

    There's also a brand-new tool for that: AppBuster
  13. VIASAT Browser

    The VIASAT browser seems to be based on Chromium. You can use following methods to add other browsers: https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/advanced-usage/ccleaner-ini-files/how-to-clean-user-data-from-non-standard-mozilla-browsers CustomLocation1=CHROME|path_to_user_profile https://forum.piriform.com/search/?q=CustomLocation1=CHROME

    Winapp2.ini updates: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/988564fc44f2ac6aee6903b4894c76d28a133b36 https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/e2a99bddbfb0102ea2bdc944d676080a1280b1df The latest version of the file "Winapp2.ini" now supports Brave Beta and Dev. You should also add the browsers to CCleaner using one of the following methods: https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/advanced-usage/ccleaner-ini-files/how-to-clean-user-data-from-non-standard-mozilla-browsers CustomLocation1=CHROME|path_to_user_profile: https://forum.piriform.com/search/?q=CustomLocation1=CHROME Example: CustomLocation1=CHROME|C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser-Beta\User Data\Default
  15. Winapp2.ini additions

    Some time ago I asked on GitHub which category should be used for Microsoft Store Games. The answer was that we should also use Section=Games. I hope that's okay with you, too.
  16. Winapp2.ini additions

    In the latest release only the support for different variants of the Brave browser has been added. The "updates from the community" are not finished yet, I think I can update them tomorrow.
  17. Winapp2.ini additions

    Yes, you're right, the changed DetectFile should always match. Ok, then we won't be able to solve the mystery for now. I will then proceed with the compromise as in my post: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/32310-winapp2ini-additions/?page=311&tab=comments#comment-303915 Thanks again for your help.
  18. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks, but unfortunately, there's still an inconsistency: The original Detect used "FilmOnLiveTVFree.FilmOnLiveTVFree_zx03kxexxb716" like the RegKey1. On your image it is now "FilmOnLiveTVFree.FilmOn_zx03kxexxb716". Do we then need a Detect3?
  19. Winapp2.ini additions

    @siliconman01 I guess my last post was overlooked: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/32310-winapp2ini-additions/?page=311&tab=comments#comment-303946
  20. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks again, for your reply. E1: The ExcludeKey of the BleachBit entry is no longer necessary, we removed it some time ago. And it couldn't be the culprit for the issue. Even the wildcards in the directory names don't change the situation, only changes have been made to make the entry easier to read. E2: The FileKey9 of the BleachBit entry is also not necessary as it is already covered by FileKey6. They have removed the same files. So, if you really don't use the ExcludeKey you posted here, then it's very strange that your entry doesn't break Cortana anymore, because without the ExcludeKey the same files will be deleted as with the BleachBit entry. Would it be too much to ask, if you would please post your complete entry here?
  21. Winapp2.ini additions

    Thanks for your clarification. Unfortunately CCleaner does not support wildcards in registry keys. You need to add an additional Detect.
  22. Winapp2.ini additions

    This is not possible because the desktop version already uses this name. We could leave the name unchanged or use [iTunes App *]. The "App" is also used by some other apps, e.g. [ShareX App *]. Just to be safe: Is this a copy and paste error or is the path correct? Because of the double "Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftOfficeHub_*\AC".
  23. Winapp2.ini additions

    Ok, thank you very much for your fast reply. I'm very sorry, but now I have to bother you again: If your entry is exactly like in my post, then your entry has an ExcludeKey? Or do we have a misunderstanding? (Because the main question of the current discussion is whether we need to exclude files or not.) If your entry has an ExcludeKey, we know why your entry no longer breaks Cortana. If your entry doesn't have an ExcludeKey, it's even stranger, but maybe the "SettingsCache.txt" file is only important for non-English systems. The BleachBit entry is the same as the current winapp2.ini entry, but without the correct ExcludeKey.
  24. Winapp2.ini additions

    I don't know this app either. But it seems that it is related to Windows 8.1, as you have already written: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/32310-winapp2ini-additions/?page=156&tab=comments#comment-245854
  25. Winapp2.ini additions

    Here is a compromise to end this little drama: [Cortana *] LangSecRef=3031 Detect1=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppModel\SystemAppData\Microsoft.Cortana_8wekyb3d8bbwe Detect2=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppModel\SystemAppData\Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy Default=False FileKey1=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.*Cortana_*\AC\AppCache|*.*|RECURSE FileKey2=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.*Cortana_*\AC\INet*|*.*|RECURSE FileKey3=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.*Cortana_*\AC\Microsoft\CryptnetUrlCache\*|*.*|RECURSE FileKey4=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.*Cortana_*\AC\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\DOMStore|*.*|RECURSE FileKey5=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.*Cortana_*\AC\Temp|*.*|RECURSE FileKey6=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.*Cortana_*\TempState|*.*|RECURSE FileKey7=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_*\LocalCache|*.*|RECURSE FileKey8=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_*\LocalState\AppIconCache|*.*|RECURSE FileKey9=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_*\LocalState\DeviceSearchCache|*.txt ExcludeKey1=FILE|%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_*\LocalState\DeviceSearchCache\|SettingsCache.txt The ExcludeKey for the single file "SettingsCache.txt" is definitively necessary, because I can still easily repro the issue on every system I tested, even v1803. And we also had an issue report on GitHub. Ok, since the second issue only occurs under special conditions, we try it once again without excluding the files "AppCache###.txt". But if we should get a new issue report, here or on GitHub, we will change the ExcludeKey back. I hope everybody will be happy now and we can close this topic. Thanks for your information. But this is very strange, because the changed FileKey9 you are using now deletes the same files as the previous FileKey of the entry that caused issues on your system. But anyway, let's just wait and see if the issue recurs. Just to make sure: You then also removed the ExcludeKey from your own entry? Or is there still an ExcludeKey in your entry?
