    ...The registry setting is now in Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Piriform\CCleaner...

    The supposed fix, adding a string value (in the correct registry hive) of "CustomLocation1" with data "CHROME|"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome Beta\Application"" doesn't work.

    CCleaner settings are still stored under the registry key "Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Piriform\CCleaner". The registry key "Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Piriform\CCleaner" is used for a few installation settings only.

    If your registry key "Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Piriform\CCleaner" is empty, then you probably enabled "Save all settings to INI file". Therefore, you have to add the CustomLocation1 to the ccleaner.ini file.

    And you have to specify the path to the user profile, for example:
    CustomLocation1=CHROME|C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome Beta\User Data\Default
    (Quotation marks are not necessary.)

  2. I can confirm all three bugs also!

    Workaround for #2: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/52280-unable-disable-monitoring-in-5456611/?tab=comments#comment-297838.


    @Piriform: I'm really disappointed about the poor in-house testing and the extremely slow bug fixing. Please stop adding new and useless features and concentrate on bug fixing! And please release a bug free version as soon as possible, not in 4 weeks or later. Other developers are fixing bugs within hours, your developers need many weeks or months! Why? And keep in mind that your customers of the non-free versions paid for the now broken functions and that there is a warranty for software in the EU.

    Modified entry:  [Syncios Cell Phone Backup & Manage *]

    Added FileKey3 ...

    Thanks for the modified entry. For the FileKey3 you can use the variable %Documents%:

    [Syncios Cell Phone Backup & Manage *]
    Detect2=HKCU\Software\Syncios Data Transfer
    FileKey2=%AppData%\Syncios Data Transfer|*.log
    FileKey3=%Documents%\Syncios Data Transfer|preference_conf.ini.old.bak


  4. @javagate: I think he answered your question already. It seems that a Windows update causes the issue.

    In this case, there is another cause which is an update to Windows 10 (build 1803) that is breaking this functionality. We are working on this issue currently and anticipate a fix for the v5.46 release (release after the next one).

    But it's strange that previous versions of CCleaner are still working...

    After installing the current 64 bit Vivaldi in Windows 7, I noticed that an entry was missing in [SetupMetrics *].  I'm suggesting to add FileKey21 as this is where the files have been going:...

    Thank you for the info. I found out that it depends on the installation type. On the first setup screen you can click on "Advanced" and choose the "Installation type": "Install per user" (default setting) uses "%LocalAppData%\Vivaldi\Application" and "Install for all users" uses "%ProgramFiles%\Vivaldi\Application".


    Winapp2.ini update:

    For the new README.md file with the Winapp2 instructions, it appears that most of the backslashes have been "escaped" like in a c string.  So most of the backslashes in the path names are doubled up, also some of the asterisks are escaped, showing up as *\ instead of just *

    That's correct, because GitHub uses the Markdown format (.md not .txt). Workaround: You can copy and paste the readme text, instead of downloading the .md file.

    For the LangSecRef list, here are a few more:
    LangSecRef=3029 = Google Chrome
    LangSecRef=3030 = Thunderbird
    LangSecRef=3031 = Windows Store



    Winapp2.ini update:

    Winapp3.ini update:

    BTW, even if you don't install Avast an Avast Registry Key will be dropped.  I attached a screenshot of it.  If you are not familiar with the Registry just leave it.  Otherwise, you can delete the key if you want to.

    This registry key prevents that Avast will be offered again (with the next update).

    For some reason, the TRIM function of winapp2ool.exe (V0.8.0.0) does not recognize the DetectFile shown below for Chrome and it trims these all out.

    I can confirm this behavior. It seems that the TRIM function has a little bug. I think Winapp2.ini will fix this soon.

    I wonder if CCleaner is recognizing %LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*  where it is used in FileKey and ExcludeKey. ??? 

    No need to worry. Wildcards are working flawless with CCleaner.

    1/ First thing : i was very VERY desappointed when i saw that you deleted "check update" option !
    3/ I updated CCleaner (forced, because bored with notification) , and (i wasn't accustomed to be on defensive with you !!), I found myself with Mc Afee :wacko: !! Ohhh!! :o There was an option to uncheck !!! First time i see that whith Ccleaner ! :blink:

    1) The option is still there (please check the screenshot).
    3) The CCleaner installer offers Avast, not McAfee. (And the CCleaner installer always offers Chrome if it is not installed.)
