CCleaner and Chromium

Recommended Posts

Where does CCleaner go to remove the temp files for Google Chrome and how can I adjust it to also include Chromium?

First of all, don't use Chrome or Chromium. SRWare Iron is better in every respect. It has none of the privacy concerns and uses the latest version of WebKit.

 

Read this thread for instructions on how to clean Iron.

 

Sorry, but I'm a touch confused... is SRWare Iron following the dev release? Because I'm getting the daily releases of Chromium and haven't used a "fully stable release" in awhile. Is SRWare compatible with the addons and themes? Sorry for all the questions.

My version is 4.0.287.0 to be specific, though tomorrow it'll probably be a little higher.

No SRWare (stable version) is not as up to date as Chromium, it's not even up to Chrome/Chromium version 4 yet. And as far as I'm aware Chromium doesn't have the tracking that Chrome does either, SRWare Iron just takes the privacy elements a step further and removes any trace or tracking.

 

(Having said that I use Iron, not chromium)

I copied another user's SRWare example, and simply changed it to point to the right executable since it uses the same data paths for temp files and the name of course.

 

Open up notepad and paste the following into it:

 

[Internet Cache]
Section=Chromium
DetectFile=C:\Users\Erik\AppData\Local\Chromium\Application\chrome.exe
Default=True
FileKey1=%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Chromium\User Data\Default\Cache|*.*

[Cookies]
Section=Chromium
DetectFile=C:\Users\Erik\AppData\Local\Chromium\Application\chrome.exe
Default=True
FileKey1=%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Chromium\User Data\Default|Cookies

[Internet History]
Section=Chromium
DetectFile=C:\Users\Erik\AppData\Local\Chromium\Application\chrome.exe
Default=True
FileKey1=%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Chromium\User Data\Default|*History*
FileKey2=%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Chromium\User Data\Default|Thumbnails
FileKey3=%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Chromium\User Data\Default|Visited Links

[Current Session]
Section=Chromium
DetectFile=C:\Users\Erik\AppData\Local\Chromium\Application\chrome.exe
Default=True
FileKey1=%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Chromium\User Data\Default|Current*

[Last Session]
Section=Chromium
DetectFile=C:\Users\Erik\AppData\Local\Chromium\Application\chrome.exe
Default=True
FileKey1=%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Chromium\User Data\Default|Last*

[Form Data]
Section=Chromium
DetectFile=C:\Users\Erik\AppData\Local\Chromium\Application\chrome.exe
Default=True
FileKey1=%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Chromium\User Data\Default|Web Data

Then go to file, Save As, and type, _including_ the quote marks "winapp2.ini" and save it in the CCleaner folder in Program Files. When you open it up it should list Chromium.

 

I get my builds from here Chromium Daily Builds

New builds are made several times a day. Of course it's EXTREMELY alpha.. however, this is using 5.xx branch. Running a few browser javascript tests and whatnot between Chrome 4.xx and Chromium 5.xx I got much better results.

But what if the user wants to use chrome?

WoodburyMan, you forgot some "C:\Users\Erik\" :)

And you are using both %UserProfile%\AppData\Local\ (Vista/7) and %UserProfile%\Local Settings\Application Data\ (XP). It will work on Vista but not on XP. You should use %LocalAppData% ;)

 

Here is a better version.

but there is no such enviroment variable %localappdata% by default in Windows XP.

or CC has its own internal variables working independently upon operating system, hasnt it?

True but not relevant

I believe CC version 2 made the correct susbstitution.

I am sure version 3 does likewise.

 

NB Any of my scripts that may be used on Windows 7 or XP supports %localappdata% with the line

IF "%LOCALAPPDATA%"=="" SET LOCALAPPDATA=%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data

CCleaner has internal enviromental variables? yes.

 

%LocalAppData% = %userprofile%\app data\local - Vista and Seven

%LocalAppData% = %userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data - XP (and I think W2k)
