  1. Many thanks for all the replies and the new or revised entries. Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/24609673dd246f5756aca501cb0817c28ad990b3
  2. The entry [HTML5 Store *] cleans the folder "\storage" already. Except for the folders "\storage\default\moz-extension*", because Firefox stores all settings of all installed add-ons (extensions) there. Deleting these Indexed Databases resets all add-ons to their default settings. For example, if you use uBlock Origin, you will also delete all downloaded filter lists. ("3647222921wleabcEoxlt-eengsairo.*" stores the settings of an add-on that was silently migrated by Firefox 66. "1671402671ueBglaorcokt0SCeahc.*" stores the uBlock Origin filter lists.) The Indexed Databases created by websites ("\storage\default\http*") are always deleted, even by the built-in entry "Cookies". [HTML5 Store *] ... FileKey2=%AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*\storage|*.*|RECURSE ... ExcludeKey2=PATH|%AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*\storage\default\moz-extension*\|*.* ... The previous entry [FlashPlayer SharedObjects *] and the built-in entry "Cookies" seem to deliberately exclude this location/file. It seems that the file "settings.sol" stores global settings for the Flash Player in this location: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/32310-winapp2ini-additions/?page=242&tab=comments#comment-280836. (If there are really other files than "settings.sol" in the folder after the cleaning, we also could simply keep the entry [FlashPlayer SharedObjects *].) [FlashPlayer SharedObjects *] ... FileKey13=%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\*\Pepper Data\Shockwave Flash\WritableRoot\#SharedObjects|*.*|RECURSE ... ExcludeKey13=FILE|%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\*\Pepper Data\Shockwave Flash\WritableRoot\#SharedObjects\*\macromedia.com\support\flashplayer\sys\|settings.sol ...
  3. Thank you very much for your quick reply and checking the built-in entries. Just to be safe: We could then remove the following entries (= move them to "Removed entries.ini"), right? [FlashPlayer SharedObjects *] [Local Storage *] [Omnibox Shortcuts *] [Quota Manager Data *] [Anti-Phishing Data *] [DOM Store *]
  4. Is the following entry correct? (It is your entry, please let us know if it should be revised or removed. Thanks.) [Stored Explorer View *] LangSecRef=3025 Detect=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows Default=False RegKey1=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|0 RegKey2=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|1 RegKey3=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|2 RegKey4=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|3 RegKey5=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|4 RegKey6=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|5 RegKey7=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|6 RegKey8=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|7 RegKey9=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|8 RegKey10=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|9 RegKey11=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|10 RegKey12=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|MRUListEx RegKey13=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|0 RegKey14=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU|MRUListEx RegKey15=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\BagMRU|0 RegKey16=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\BagMRU|MRUListEx
  5. You can add the browser 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\User Data\Default
  6. Thanks for the replies. I'm not sure we've misunderstood each other. Therefore a little more detailed: Please use the built-in entries I mentioned and check the modification date of the files before and after cleaning. You will see that the modification date changes, so that CCleaner at least opens these files and accesses the content/database. There are some other built-in entries that just clean the content/database instead of deleting the file itself. That's why I ask the community for their experiences with these entries. If we don't get enough information, we'll leave it as it is.
  7. Question to all: The files of the following entries are also cleaned by CCleaner. Since I don't have Chrome in my daily use, I can't tell if CCleaner deletes the contents completely or only partially. It would be great if you could share your experiences and recommend which entries possibly could be removed. Many thanks in advance. Chrome/Chromium: [FlashPlayer SharedObjects *] ... FileKey13=%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\*\Pepper Data\Shockwave Flash\WritableRoot\#SharedObjects|*.*|RECURSE ... The built-in entry "Cookies" cleans this location. [Local Storage *] ... FileKey13=%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\*\Local Storage|http*.*|RECURSE ... In my tests, this entry never deletes a single file. It seems that "Local Storage" has been switched to Level-DB and the entry is outdated. Edit: The built-in entry "Cookies" cleans the "http*.*" files. [Omnibox Shortcuts *] ... FileKey13=%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\*|Shortcuts ... The built-in entry "Internet History" cleans this file. [Quota Manager Data *] ... FileKey13=%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\*|QuotaManager ... The built-in entry "Cookies" cleans this file. [Web Data *] ... FileKey13=%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome*\User Data\*|Web Data ... The built-in entries "Internet History" and "Saved Form Information" clean this file. Firefox: [Anti-Phishing Data *] ... FileKey2=%LocalAppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*|urlclassifier3.sqlite ... Mozilla stopped using and supporting this file a long time ago. It seems that the entry is outdated. [DOM Store *] ... FileKey2=%AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*|webappsstore.sqlite ... The built-in entry "Cookies" cleans this file.
  8. Many thanks to all for the new and revised entries. Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/496f3191fe63d674ca3f3365294f885b307c3fdf
  9. Thank you for your quick reply and clarification. Okay, then we will split the entry. Unfortunately, CCleaner only deletes this file for the few Chromium-based browsers that CCleaner directly supports. If you need to use "CustomLocation", CCleaner does not delete the file. Therefore, we should keep these FileKeys.
  10. IMHO, the current name of the entry fits better because the *-journal files are typical cache and the *.ldb/*.log files caches download links, for example. CCleaner has been cleaning these files for a long time. But such entries have been added because CCleaner does not delete the files itself, so traces may be left. There are also some other such entries under Chrome and Firefox. This is already covered by the entry [Windows ShellBags *]. Is a separate entry necessary?
  11. Thanks for your reply and the revised entries. Thanks of course also to all others for their new or revised entries. Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/69030c80e2ac9102c6a438d605ef7111ba8bbdd1
  12. Thanks for the revised entry, but did you see that the entry [Updates *] also contains FileKeys for other Chromium-based browsers? I think you just want to separate Google Update because it also updates other Google software, right? Then I suggest that we use the following entries: [Updates *] LangSecRef=3029 Detect1=HKCU\Software\BraveSoftware Detect2=HKCU\Software\CocCoc\Browser Detect3=HKCU\Software\Torch Default=False FileKey1=%LocalAppData%\CocCoc\Update\Download|*.*|RECURSE FileKey2=%LocalAppData%\CocCoc\Update\Install|*.*|RECURSE FileKey3=%LocalAppData%\CocCoc\Update\Offline|*.*|RECURSE FileKey4=%LocalAppData%\Torch\Update\Download|*.*|RECURSE FileKey5=%LocalAppData%\Torch\Update\Install|*.*|RECURSE FileKey6=%LocalAppData%\Torch\Update\Offline|*.*|RECURSE FileKey7=%ProgramFiles%\BraveSoftware\Update\Download|*.*|RECURSE FileKey8=%ProgramFiles%\BraveSoftware\Update\Install|*.*|RECURSE FileKey9=%ProgramFiles%\BraveSoftware\Update\Offline|*.*|RECURSE [Google Update *] LangSecRef=3021 Detect=HKCU\Software\Google\Update Default=False FileKey1=%LocalAppData%\Google\Update\Download|*.*|RECURSE FileKey2=%LocalAppData%\Google\Update\Install|*.*|RECURSE FileKey3=%LocalAppData%\Google\Update\Offline|*.*|RECURSE FileKey4=%ProgramFiles%\Google\Update\Download|*.*|RECURSE FileKey5=%ProgramFiles%\Google\Update\Install|*.*|RECURSE FileKey6=%ProgramFiles%\Google\Update\Offline|*.*|RECURSE Google Update can also be found at %LocalAppData%\Google\Update\, e.g. if you install Google Chrome Canary.
  13. You can use the 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 And here's a short guide for Waterfox: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/49017-cleaning-waterfox-profile-historycache-with-ccleaner-win-7/?tab=comments#comment-287518
  14. Winapp2.ini updates: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/ddd6117bb987744e136e141073fa1be8091b0a77 https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/d55cc4e04850436d1774a16fb8b7cd2728c8a852
  15. That's right. You can't delete an entire drive, only files and folders. You can only use "F:\" if you change "File Types" from "All Files" to "File Types:" and specify the files you want to delete.
  16. There is no button, you must click the checkbox to enable cleaning of custom files and folders: Then you can add your files and folders here:
  17. I guess it should be LangSecRef=3022 (= Internet). For the readme simply click on the GitHub link in the first post. Edit: Sorry, LangSecRef for the category Internet is 3022.
  18. As far as I know, every subkey of \Profiles\ is a profile. The default profile name is Outlook, but you can also add additional profiles, e.g.: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Profiles\Outlook\ HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Profiles\Personal\ HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Profiles\Work\
  19. Winapp2.ini updates: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/6fd8702ce4d928f6badf2a5cad71ef60b5e0c916 https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/aa24a3cf03958bfbeed353377cf7bc1d671f9b5b https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/6787d6577e582237ec3d9ab5f895c63638dc9b9f I have added your entry to Winapp2.ini. I guess it will work for most Outlook users. Maybe @Winapp2.ini can add this feature in a future version of Winapp2ool.
  20. Thank you very much for providing most of the them! I think MS will certainly be more successful with the new Edge.
  21. Winapp2.ini updates: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/e700e7cb6b6ce2b33c4fbab4be92ec42d536fe71 https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/ff1cb36ce624340e5eb69b5ae3420ec38fffa7e6 https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/f08ba60a0d88a041b65e5b624721c397d8d00822
  22. Thanks for the new and modified entries. Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/6c134ef7668f627b24bbfcc95e32fdbc4b4680a8
  23. Unfortunately, Piriform never updated the manual, so the manual still only mentions Mozilla-based browsers. But it also works for Chromium-based browsers. Correct, the section "Google Chrome" in CCleaner is responsible for all Chromium-based browsers at the same time. It is not possible to clean each of them individually. If you put only the file Winapp2.ini in CCleaner's program folder, only the entries of the file Winapp2.ini will clean the Brave browser. However, if you want a complete cleaning, with the built-in entries of CCleaner, you have to add the "CustomLocation1" in your ccleaner.ini.
  24. There are already some threads on this issue: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53697-cookies/ https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53571-ccleaner-does-not-see-or-delete-cookies-anymore/ Maybe this will help: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/53697-cookies/?tab=comments#comment-305366
  25. The entries are listed under the section "Google Chrome", there is no separate section "Brave Browser". The entries always clean up all installed Chromium-based browsers at once. You should also add the browser 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\User Data\Default
