Winapp2.ini additions

Recommended Posts

Made this immediately after reading a post by Hazelnut:

Which reminds me I stumbled across this key recently with a load of reg entries for old Flash player versions: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\RADAR\HeapLeakDetection\DiagnosedApplications

 

Dunno if it's worth an entry or not, or if anyone even has that many old Flash entries to be worth a winapp2 entry (the only real info I could find about that reg key was HERE, old Flash entries should certainly be safe to remove, other entries probably not, or at least unnecessary)

added RegKey3

 

 

these two Keys look like they can be added to most 8 apps

HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppModel\SystemAppData\ "APP ID" \SearchHistory

HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppModel\SystemAppData\ "APP ID" \PersistedStorageItemTable\MostRecentlyUsed

 

RegKey3 not needed, I have tried to get this key created by using the search within the adobe reader app but it does not appear like it does when I search bing weather

 

Something tells me that a search from within the adobe reader app is nothing but a regular file search, not a custom "tied in" search like the other bing apps have

Added RegKey2 to [Windows Photos*]

 

(Need to sort through still there might be a couple that do not need the MRU. I jumped the gun hitting post before I was ready)

@Coffee4Joe you are doing it aggain with RegKey2 and the bing apps. Not all apps are the same, you are not checking to see if the apps even creates/uses this key...This MostRecentlyUsed key is created by apps that can browse & open files and keep a list of recently opened

 

I reckon none of the apps you posted do this, only one that it could apply to (but it does not) is the skydrive app. But I found these similar keys from adobe reader do apply to skydrive

I suggest some one goes thru the Win8 apps to double check for any redundant regkeys

I had copy/pasted my app list and hit post before i was finnished, the ones there should be the correct ones.

edit: so I thought, my first edit didn't seem to save. now it should be correct

Adobe Reader and Microsoft Reader both save a MRU list and they use different keys...another reason to not add that to all bing apps

 

Adobe Reader MRU

Removed due to being a destructive cleaner.

 

Edit:

Renamed it to "User Assist History (More)*" since the one in CCleaner under advanced named "User Assist History" only cleans four unique keys in there - not all of them.

 

FWIW this wiped out my start menu on win7 (the pinned applications and the user assist history)

It doesn't bother me personally since I don't use the start menu much (all of my most used programs are keyed to line commands, anything else I just search for in the start menu) but I think it'll definitely bother people that rely on the menu. Warning needed.

 

Probably something like

 

Warning=This will also reset your start menu and remove any pinned applications.

It wouldn't bother me but the start menu wipe out seemed permanent, I couldn't get it to repopulate (had a reg backup so wasn't a major issue to fix)

Sorry about this, when I read Adobe Reader I kept assuming Microsoft Reader. And thinking it was like the default locations the others used it threw me off

 

Narrowed down to [Windows Photos*] as using the *PersistedStorageItemTable\MostRecentlyUsed

 

[user Assist History (More)*]

 

Nothing from start screen or task bar removed in 8 for me

Mine seems to be repopulating after a reboot.

Warning needed.

 

I edited that cleaner and put in the warning. Note that on my WinXP system it didn't do anything destructive to the Start Menu.

 

Sorry if this caused any of you grief. Hence the reason some things need extensive testing on more than one OS. That website article needed updated info that it could cause issues in newer OSes.

That was my first move. 4 reboots, multiple program launches and the start menu stayed blank.

Mine only re-populated after I manually re-made that UserAssist key, followed by a reboot.

 

Also the only two I have are what I had before the removal although those two that I have are removed by CCleaner's Advanced->User Assist History.

 

Edit:

CCleaner only removes the "Count" portion, not the whole key!!!

I think we should have all the lines/paths in alphabetical order. It looks more professional.

I think we should put all of the Windows 8 Apps entries together in the Winapp2.ini at the end.

Initially I considered having a universal windows 8 key, but then I wondered if that would be overly agressive (not to mention slow - look at the Steam DirectX installer key on a machine with lots of games installed) and figured individual keys may be the better option.

I think it is good to have one universal entry for all the Windows 8 Apps because they're already hundreds of apps for Windows 8. If we add all the Windows 8 Apps separately, it will be too much for Winapp2.ini to handle.

so what does this do exactly?

 

will it clean all the **** websites leave on my computer?

 

i need to be fully anonymous, like if I clean my pc and log in with another user - there must be no way the website could tell it's the same pc. can this ini do this? i have seen sneaky flash cookies not being clean by cc before unless i told it exactly what folder they are in. but i don't want to do that, because i don't know all the folder in windows where every other software places its files.

 

thanks
