  1. Firefox 55 added a new database file for the favicons (favicons.sqlite). Therefore, you have to visit every bookmarked website again to get the favicons back.

     

    CCleaners option "Firefox: Internet Cache" deletes the cache files (favicons.sqlite-shm, favicons.sqlite-wal) of this new file. After cleaning the cache many favicons are gone again.

     

    Edit: This is a bug in Firefox 55. Firefox usually transfers the cache into the database file and then deletes the cache files on closing. But the new Firefox 55 doesn't do that sometimes.


  2. last I heard, the problem with CC cleaning the windows.old folder was not being looked into any further as the issue could not be replicated in the labs.

     

    general consensus is to still use CLEANMGR to clean that folder.

    Ok, thanks for the clarification.

     

    As far as I know, the problem occurs only if Windows refers to drivers in the windows.old folder. Using CLEANMGR (= "Disk cleanup") should be safe.


  3. The Windows.old folder takes too much place, i realy would like to remove it.

     

    I didn't try with ccleanr 5.32, is it fixed now? And is it working well with windows cleaner tool?

    I think they can't really fix the issue with the folder "Windows.old". Therefore, I hope they disable that option.

     

    I recommend to use Windows "Disk cleanup" to remove the old Windows version. If there are some files left after cleaning, you can boot Windows in Safe Mode and use "Disk cleanup" again.


  4. Does anyone have any idea(s) and/or suggestion(s) on what it might be that's cleaning my RDC credentials, aside from the actual Remote Desktop option itself? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I guess you have to untick: Cleaner > Windows > Windows Explorer > Network Passwords.

     

    Credentials are stored in the Windows Vault. And CCleaner deletes the Windows Vault if you enable "Network Passwords"!


  5. I think [sourceHash Files*] and [wix Files*] entries should be merged into [Windows Installer Temps*]. Also, please add support for .rmi traces.

     

    [Windows Installer Temps*]

    LangSecRef=3025

    Detect=HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer

    Default=False

    FileKey1=%WinDir%\Installer\MSI*.tmp-|*.*|REMOVESELF

    FileKey2=%WinDir%\Installer|*.rmi|RECURSE

    FileKey3=%WinDir%\Installer|SourceHash{*.*|RECURSE

    FileKey4=%WinDir%\Installer|*.tmp|RECURSE

     

    (Note: .rmi = [wix Files*])

    My suggestion for merging [Windows Installer Temps*], [sourceHash Files*] and [wix Files*]:

    [Windows Installer Temps*]
    LangSecRef=3025
    Detect=HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer
    Default=False
    FileKey1=%WinDir%\Installer\MSI*.tmp-|*.*|REMOVESELF
    FileKey2=%WinDir%\Installer|*.tmp|RECURSE
    FileKey3=%WinDir%\Installer|SourceHash{*};wix{*}.SchedServiceConfig.rmi
    

  6.  

    Please don't forget to include this modified entry:  [Windows Installer Temps*]

    [Windows Installer Temps*]
    LangSecRef=3025
    Detect=HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer
    Default=False
    FileKey1=%WinDir%\Installer|*.tmp|RECURSE
    FileKey2=%WinDir%\Installer|*.rmi|RECURSE
    FileKey3=%WinDir%\Installer|SourceHash{*.*|RECURSE
    FileKey4=%WinDir%\Installer\*.tmp-|*.*|REMOVESELF
    FileKey5=%WinDir%\Installer\MSI*.tmp-|*.*|REMOVESELF
    FileKey6=%WinDir%\Installer\MSI*|*.*|REMOVESELF
    

     

    FileKey2 is equivalent to [wix Files*]

    FileKey3 is equivalent to [sourceHash Files*]

    FileKey5 should be enough, and it's safe. FileKey4+6 are not really needed. (And FileKey6 could be possibly dangerous.)


  7. Revised Entries

    ...

    Added *.edb;.*jfm*;.jrs into %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_*\AppData\User\Default\Indexed DB\|*.edb;.*jfm*;.jrs;*.log

     

    [Microsoft Edge More*]

    ...

    FileKey11=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_*\AppData\User\Default\Indexed DB\|*.edb;.*jfm*;.jrs;*.log

    ...

     

    Is FileKey11 correct?

    FileKey11=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_*\AppData\User\Default\Indexed DB\|*.edb;.*jfm*;.jrs;*.log

    Shouldn't it be?

    FileKey11=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_*\AppData\User\Default\Indexed DB\|*.edb;*.jfm;*.jrs;*.log


  8. Open the "Credential Manager" ("Control Panel" > "User Accounts") and you will find entries starting with "MS.Outlook" or "MicrosoftOffice".

    Do you have those entries?

     

     

    Please copy the following line:

    REG QUERY HKCU\Software\Piriform\CCleaner >%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\cc.txt

    Open a "Command Prompt" and paste the line into it.

    Press "Enter", and on your Desktop appears a new file called "cc.txt".

    Open the file, copy its whole content and paste it here.


  9. I guess you have to untick: Cleaner > Windows > Windows Explorer > Network Passwords.

     

    Did you try this? If you are using Exchange the passwords are stored in the Windows Vault.

     

    You can check that: Open the "Credential Manager" ("Control Panel" > "User Accounts") and you will find entries starting with "MS.Outlook" or "MicrosoftOffice".

     

    CCleaner deletes the Windows Vault if you enable "Network Passwords"!


  10. But it does Not clear the Data usage. :(

    Run CCleaner and then check:

    Go to Windows Settings >Network & Internet >Data usage

    It must be 0 MB but it is Not. :(

    If you check the Data Usage before the cleaning, some of the files are locked. And it seems that they are cached in the memory.

    It works after a reboot. But you have to wait 2-3 minutes before and after using CC. Otherwise some files will be locked or reappearing.
