This needs removed. It makes MSE sometimes think it doesn't have any definition files installed, and when that happens MSE will download the big/full definition file.

Nah.

I think you may wish to present a better argument if you've got any hope of keeping it

This name duplication is preventing either one from showing up in the Applications tab.  Looks to me that the first/top one needs to be totally removed.  :wacko:

Shows up for me though:

Same here (just added both back to check). Either way, the shorter entry needs removing.

Nah.

 

Well I'm the original author of that cleaning routine, and after today testing out the current version of MSE have had that cleaning routine completely nuke the definition files on two separate occasions after rebooting. So actually it does need removed to prevent MSE stating it has no definition files installed.

Nothing about IE11 saved passwords?

Have you tried unchecking Saved Passwords? I don't believe the IE entries in winapp2 touch passwords

Yes sure, it's unchecked!

This problem came with the last update of winapp2 (CCEnhancer)

FWIW double-entries with different langsecrefs but the same name usually double up in the lower section from my experience.

Hi Robert Ward,
I attached some new entries for Winapp2.ini.
I hope you will add them to the original file.
 
Can you ask the developers of CCleaner program or posting in the forum, if in the near future will ad to the program the feature to remove specific lines or sections from *.INI files.
 
Thank you.

Sincerely,
[redact]

In Win 8.1 FileKey1 sometimes resets default open with apps (Music, Photo Viewer, Video, etc)

 

Edit #1: I see it's been mentioned before, maybe adding a warning as this is useful for removing cached extentions

Edit #2: is there a way to ExcludeKey for registry entries? Like "ExcludeKey1=Key1=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.avi;.mp3;http; etc etc"

Could you please ask the developers to remove the "Nero 12 Platinum HD Suite" entry from the program. The "Nero 12" entry that I provided is already in Winapp2.ini & is far better.

 

If they like to keep the entry, they should at least change the name to Nero 12 because a 'Platinum HD Suite' program never existed after version 10. After that is Nero 11, 12, & now, Nero 2014. If the developers change the name, then we can change the Winapp.ini entry to 'Nero 12 More'.

Nobody has any more or less sway with the developers than you do. However they've read this, I'm sure, and quite possibly will look into it.

I have provided this entry before Windows 8 was released. It doesn't work with Windows 8 or 8.1 properly, it only wipes RegKey2. It doesn't work properly when in Safe Mode either. I think we should limit this entry for Windows 7 with a warning like you suggested. And if they limit this entry for Windows 7, they should remove RegKey2 as it is good on Win 8 & 8.1. I don't have a Win 7 system anymore. Someone can check it.

I think the [Apple Installer Cache*] and [Windows Update Logs*] entries should not be in Winapp2.ini. In some cases, [Windows Update Logs*] entry corrupts Windows Update on Windows 8 & 8.1. It also removes all the Windows Update History. This entry works properly in Safe Mode only.

 

The [MS Search] & [MS Search More*] entries break Search Indexer and cause issues. These work properly only in Safe Mode. [Windows Session Manager*] doesn't work since the Windows Session Manager process is active always in Windows 8 and 8.1. It works properly only in Safe Mode. It keeps traces of all the programs installed even though they were uninstalled from the system. It also holds info about portable programs that were ran once and then were removed from the system. It also holds info about the portable programs that were ran from a removable drive.

 

I think we should have a separate tab for the entries that work only in Safe Mode.

We have no control over the number of tabs in the program, so i'm not sure what you meant

I think we should have a separate tab for the entries that work only in Safe Mode.

I forget the technical term but there are some Detection key values to detect which version of Windows is running and accordingly enable or disable Winapp2.ini entries

Could a similar form of Detection key value be invented and used to detect whether Safe mode is in use and accordingly enable or disable Winapp2.ini entries
