    Remove:  [Dell PC-Doctor (Logs) *]  because it is incorporated in [Dell Logs *].   Note:  Please confirm my assertion that Dell PC-Doctor (Logs) is not needed. ...

    Are you using a custom Winapp2.ini file? Because this entry doesn't exist in the official file. And yes, it is covered by the entry [Dell Logs *] already.

    Modified Entry:  [Dell PC Doctor *] changed to [Dell PC Doctor (.dmp) *]

    As we don't use brackets in entries names anymore, is [Dell PC Doctor Dumps *] also ok for you?

    New Entry ... [HSTS supercookies*] ...

    This entry [Firefox Stored HSTS Cookies Extras *] is in the "Removed entries.ini" file, because CCleaner can clean up the "SiteSecurityServiceState.txt" file itself.

    ... %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*|places.sqlite ...

    CCleaner can clean up that file also (CCleaner modifies the SQLite database directly). If there are still traces left, you could report them to Piriform.

    I think we should add this HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\VirtualStore

    If you remove the key "VirtualStore" you will remove settings of old legacy applications (coded for Windows XP and older) or wrong coded applications.

    You can see it on siliconman01s screenshot. And the Microsoft documentation explains it also:

    Quote

    Virtualization Overview

    Prior to Windows Vista, applications were typically run by administrators. As a result, applications could freely access system files and registry keys. If these applications were run by a standard user, they would fail due to insufficient access rights. Windows Vista and later versions of Windows improve application compatibility for these applications by automatically redirecting these operations. For example, registry operations to the global store (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software) are redirected to a per-user location within the user's profile known as the virtual store (HKEY_USERS\_Classes\VirtualStore\Machine\Software).

    Here you can find a more detailed explanation: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/2007.06.uac.aspx

    (Piriform could improve CCleaner, so that it checks the HKLM RegKeys also under HKCU\Software\Classes\VirtualStore\MACHINE. Unfortunately, they never react on those feature requests.)

    Revised Entry
    Removed unnecessary FileKeys

    [Store *] ...
    FileKey4=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.WindowsStore_*\AC\TokenBroker\Cache|*.*|RECURSE ...

    As far as I know, this is a combined entry for the Store App of Windows 8/8.1 and 10. Your revised version would work on Windows 10 only!

    WinStore_cw5n1h2txyewy = Windows 8/8.1
    Microsoft.WindowsStore_8wekyb3d8bbwe = Windows 10

    And about the FileKey4 of your revised version:

    In Windows 8/10, TokenBroker/Cache is being used to store login infos, so this should be removed from all the Windows 8/10 related entries. There was a similar issue with the [Security Service Token Cache *] entry, where Windows Insider Program account login infos were being removed.

    ExcludeKey's should be removed from the Microsoft Store apps rules. There is no harm in removing the container.dat file. Other programs remove this file.

    ExcludeKey1=FILE|%LocalAppData%\Packages\*\AC\INetCache\|container.dat

    We had discussed this in March already. Some quotes:

    Those apps need the ExcludeKey: Bing Weather, HuluPlus, Netflix (and maybe other?)

    BTW, I checked the container.dat files on my system. They all are empty and have 0 KB. And they get recreated after deletion. It seems there's no reason for deleting them.

    It is similar to the ExcludeKeys of the entry Chrome [Logs *]: most of the Chrome extensions are working flawless without them, but not all.

     


  7. 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)...

  8. @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!

    You twisted my question. As per my understanding, this policy applies to any backup. Therefore, the backup entries from Google Chrome should be removed.

    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.


  10. Edit: Before answering, please see my latest post. Thanks.

    Now, it is deleting favorites. Most programs exclude %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_*\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\DataStore\Data\nouser1\*\DBStore\LogFiles from cleaning. Also, spartan.edb and spartan.jfm files from %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_*\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\DataStore\Data\nouser1\*\DBStore

    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...
    FileKey7=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_*\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\DataStore\Data\nouser1\*\DBStore|V01*.*|RECURSE
    FileKey8=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_*\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\DataStore\Data\nouser1\*\DBStore\LogFiles|edb0*.log;edb*.jrs;edbtmp.log

    ...than:
    FileKey7=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_*\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\DataStore\Data\nouser1\*\DBStore|*.*|RECURSE
    ExcludeKey1=FILE|%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_*\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\DataStore\Data\nouser1\*\DBStore\|spartan.edb
    ExcludeKey2=FILE|%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_*\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\DataStore\Data\nouser1\*\DBStore\|spartan.jfm
    ExcludeKey3=FILE|%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_*\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\DataStore\Data\nouser1\*\DBStore\LogFiles\|edb.log

    Edit: It could be a side effect of the previous entry. 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.
