  1. Well aware of this fact. It would be a GREAT option if CCleaner would allow for this file to be cleaned on system reboot, as so many ohter cleaners do. It does not.
  2. I can confirm this bahavior also. The files within the temporary internet folders are deleted, but the folders themselves, and the index.dat file (loaded with internet track history) remain untouched. I have not checked after running CCleaner to see whether or not file NAMES remain in the temporary internet folders. This was clearly an issue back in the 'pre V2xx CCleaner' days. Hope file names are being destroyed now, in addition to content.
  3. It's working normally under my Vista (Business.)
  4. In Vista, the latest RC version nicely stops displaying most desktop.ini files, but it continues to display c:\windows\downloaded program files\desktop.ini. Presumably because this is a protected system folder. It cannot be added to the 'Exclude' list for the same reason. Any way to get rid of this file popping up each and every time CCleaner is run ?
  5. Problem resolved for Vista, and it was not a bug in CCleaner. Found this KB article on the MS website. Turns out you have to CREATE the %rootdir% environment variable on Vista. It's not already there as in previous versions of Windows. Once I created it, following this KB article, CCleaner wiped the TMP files out of my C:\ folder like a charm. Hope this tip saves someone else some agony. KB article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931715
  6. Installed and tested your solution. Works like a charm. THANKS !
  7. Bad Entry in Winapp2.ini or Bug ?

    [*Misc Apps] LangSecRef=3021 DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe Default=True FileKey1=%rootdir%\|*.tmp BUT, only after I created %rootdir% as an environment variable in Vista.
  8. Bad Entry in Winapp2.ini or Bug ?

    EUREKA ! Problem resolved for Vista, and it was not a bug in CCleaner. Found this KB article on the MS website. Turns out you have to CREATE the %rootdir% environment variable on Vista - it's not already there as in previous versions of Windows.

  9. Bad Entry in Winapp2.ini or Bug ?

    Thanks for trying ! ! I do believe it is a Vista thing. Hope someone reads this thread and tries it on Vista just to confirm it's not only mine. Thanks again !
  10. Bad Entry in Winapp2.ini or Bug ?

    I changed my entry to %systemdrive% (copied and pasted your reply) and still no luck. Were you able to get it to delete a tmp file in Vista ? If I simiply change the folder the tmp file is in, it works like a charm, so I am wondering if it could be either a bug or a privs issue. I dont think it s a privs issue because I am the admin and I can add and delete files in the root folder at will...
  11. Not sure if there is a bug in V2 beta 491, or if I am just missing the obvious. Simply trying to clean TMP files out of my root folder in Vista. Winapp2.ini entry is as follows: [Misc Apps] LangSecRef=3021 DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe Default=True FileKey1=%rootdir%|*.tmp The 'test.tmp' file that I placed in my root folder does not delete. Would someone kindly confirm an error in my entry or the possibility of a bug? THANKS !
  12. Beta 2.00.491 Option Not Working

    Problem resolved. Removed the IE temporary files entry from winapp2.ini. (was redundant)
  13. Running Vista, the latest beta - 491 - shows a detailed log of Internet Explorer temporary files whether the option to show them is ticked or not under Options/Advanced. Can anyone else duplicate this behavior ? Everything else in 491 seems to be working so far, including deleting files in the root folder, which I reported as a bug a couple of days ago.
  14. How to Clear Cookies

    Just installed the latest beta release - 4.91 - and indeed it seems to fix the cookie handling. No longer shows 'false cookies' that the first beta showed. THANKS, Mr. G ! !
  15. How to Clear Cookies

    Good advice, indeed. As much as I would like to keep V2, it's just not 'there' yet, at least on Vista. I will continue to run 1.41.544 until the next beta 2 is released, then try again. The older version handles cookies like a champ. The only thing I miss is V2's ability to exclude folders from folder or file deletion. That is one cool improvement. I'll install the next beta release, and those after that, just to see what has been fixed or not. Thanks again ! !
