Thanks. I was writing up some documentation on the entries that are critical to the operation of 2 systems.

[Config.msi Folder*]

LangSecRef=3025

Detect=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\Folders

Default=False

RegKey1=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\Folders|C:\Config.Msi\

FileKey1=%SystemDrive%\Config.msi|*.*|REMOVESELF

 

 

 

I haven't tested it but I do wonder if RegKey1 will cause an MSI installer to fail, and I wonder if Windows Installer is smart enough to re-create that registry key to know where it unpacks the setup files.

 

 

I believe windows should automatically deleted the key after the installation is finnished if the install doesn't fail.

/me waits for patch tuesday to see if it makes & deletes the file + key

I've just noticed we've hit 3000 posts in this thread. *confetti*

 

 

@C4J, I'm not sure but that sounds logically valid. We'll have to see :)

Someone tweeted me and mentioned that an entry causes Windows Defender to not start up correctly when it's set to boot with windows. Does anyone use Windows Defender that can confirm / deny?

Mod Entry

 

[ESET Smart Security*]
LangSecRef=3021
Detect=HKLM\SOFTWARE\ESET\ESET Security
Default=False
Warning=You may need to run this in safe mode. You should also disable the ERA service to properly clean the ERA files.
FileKey1=%CommonAppData%\ESET\ESET Smart Security\Updfiles|*.*|REMOVESELF
FileKey2=%CommonAppData%\ESET\ESET Smart Security\Logs|*.*|RECURSE
FileKey3=%CommonAppData%\ESET\ESET Smart Security\Oldfiles|*.*|RECURSE

 

Added a warrning

Edited FileKey1 so to delete the folder

New

 

[ESET NOD32 Antivirus*]
LangSecRef=3021
Detect=HKLM\SOFTWARE\ESET\ESET Security
Default=False
Warning=You may need to run this in safe mode. You should also disable the ERA service to properly clean the ERA files.
FileKey1=%CommonAppData%\ESET\ESET NOD32 Antivirus\Updfiles|*.*|REMOVESELF
FileKey2=%CommonAppData%\ESET\ESET NOD32 Antivirus\Logs|*.*|RECURSE
FileKey3=%CommonAppData%\ESET\ESET NOD32 Antivirus\Oldfiles|*.*|RECURSE

 

Note: FileKey2 in both entries, the log .dat files can't be deleted; why the first person added it I have no idea.

Can someone please just check if it contains more than the .dat files. Seeing mine only contains the .dat files can’t test FileKey2.

IF so then leave as is if not remove FileKey2 then.

Most antivirus' have to be fully turned off to delete logs, backup files, etc., and I'm not just talking about their services their drivers have to also be stopped - something which Nirsoft ServiWin can do. Maybe that's why someone wrote it, but I don't know.

This is a Prime example of not cleaning junk.

Entire Programs do not belong on the PUBLIC file, what is AVM updater that the entire program should be removed without even a warning. If you don't want it uninstall it or physically delete it...or explain why I'm wrong.

 

it is not a programm its only the installer from the avm driver which you don't need for unistall.

Makes sense.

 

Looks like ESET creates an eScan folder within the Log folder that contains some .dat files that can be deleted. :huh:

 

Message from ESET :ph34r: :

“You should be able to delete the folder updfiles but I would recommend to do this in safe mode for the antivirus package alternatively if you wish to delete the updfiles folder for ESET Remote Administrator then remeber to stop the ERA service.”

I find it completely destructive to remove the *.tun extension, since Total Uninstall is made to aid in the complete removal of a program, and the *.tun files are the kept logs to allow that:

 

[Total Uninstall Backups*]

FileKey1=%CommonAppData%\Martau\Total Uninstall*|*.tlg;*.tun;*.zsns;*.zip|RECURSE

I had posted [Adobe Acrobat Setup Files*] and [Adobe Reader Setup Files*] entries but now, I have removed them because I believe CCleaner is a program to clean Internet junk and optimize Windows not to erase the Installation files of the programs.

 

I think you should also remove all the other entries that remove the installation files of the programs from Winapp2.ini

Are any of these actually junk? Or are they junk to you because you don't use the desktop wallpaper or change any prefs.

Have you heard about a privacy eraser program called {Removed}? This program was introduced 15 years ago.The Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 entry that I provided is a exact copy from that program. I have {remove} on my system I also have Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 on my system. I always wipe traces of this program using that entry without any issue.

 

By the way the FileKey12 is not related to Windows wallpaper.

Saad,

1) I am not an idiot do NOT talk to me as if I were one

By the way the FileKey12 is not related to Windows wallpaper

To use an acronym N.S.S

 

2) This is an official forum, it is not allowed to mention by name, or especially link to COMPETITOR'S PRODUCTS.

I've removed your links et.al.

 

I care Not what other's remove, ccleaner is a gentle junk! Cleaner; and if this whole time you've been submitting rules from another product's code, Willy-nilly I will personally ban you.

 

 

Edit: by the way I also have PSE11 (if you'd've looked at the thread I linked...) and the following post.
