Winapp2.ini additions in CCleaner Discussion Posted February 25 · Report reply 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. 19 hours ago, Andavari said: It doesn't cause me any issues on Win10 v1803 - I haven't been offered v1809. I tried to post this last night but some forum server error prevented it. ... 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?
