Winapp2.ini

Winapp2.ini additions

Recommended Posts

You probably also permit Microsoft updates which strike without notice,

and some browsers are on rabid release cycles.

 

Have you tried removing Winapp to confirm it is implicated ?

 

What search engine on what browser ?

 

No, I don't ever let Windows update anything on it's own. I let it check for them and then I go through them and choose accordingly. Have removed winapp2.ini and the issue went away. Ixquick search engine/IE 9 on a Windows 7 64 bit machine.

 

Also, I didn't tick any new additions after applying the latest winapp2.ini file. I just left them as they were prior to installation of the most recent file.

 

In the mean time, I'm going to pull the winapp2.ini file off of my sons computer and install it on this one that had the issue prior to removing the updated one and verify that it doesn't have the issue. I haven't updated his, I don't think. I hope not, at least.

 

 

Edit: I pulled the winapp2.ini file from junior's computer and installed it on this one that had the problem with removing search engine settings and the problem doesn't exist now that i have the previous winapp2.ini file installed. Also, I had done the fresh batch of Windows updates (manually) prior to updating the computer with the most recent winapp2.ini file that has the issue. Now that I have the previous release of winapp2.ini reinstalled, I can verify that Windows update that had been done prior to installation of the new release of winapp2.ini had nothing at all to do with the issue. But I knew that anyhow.

 

 

I can probably go through the updated winapp2.ini file that causes it and look for the problem myself, I guess. I just thought I'd ask here first. I really hate going through that thing. It takes forever going behind and fixing mistakes.

Localservice Cookies jumps out to me, as it is "bugged" in that it removes all cookies regardless of your saves.

 

Perhaps it's that?

 

I assume that you are referring to the note.

"- Added FileKeys5 and 6"

Should I assume that FileKeys 1 to 3 also remove cookies regardless of Saves ?

 

Pedantic quibble :- What happened to FileKey4 :huh:

 

SAFETY SUGGESTION :-

 

Desist from using the same header when there is extra cleaning due to an Added DELETE or an Added DETECT.

 

Assuming that this problem is due to the header

[LocalService Cookies*]

then this rule is NOT in effect by default,

and I guess that 2nd Base has checked the box in the past and for that reason CCleaner has remembered the user preference and automatically enabled "disaster".

The previous preference should have been avoided and 2nd Base would have needed to again check the box if the "extra strength" rule been given a modified header such as

[LocalService Cookies 2*]

 

N.B.

I see no need for a different header if a modification reduces the strength of cleaning.

 

N.B. - I counted 17 of these "dangerous" rules in your Modified List - and ran out of fingers :rolleyes:

The "Chrome Installer*" entry interferes with the program's capability to automatically update, then that entry isn't removing a junk file, even if it is 100+ megabytes.

It seems to break the program's capability of making a major version update, but not a minor version update.

 

"Dell Installtion Files*" entry needs spell checking.

 

Keep up the excellent work.

"- Added FileKeys5 and 6"

he's referring to this

 

 

I am the guilty party who requested FileKey5 and FileKey6 be added in this code....and it was an mistake to make this request. I recommend that these two keys be removed from [LocalService Cookies*]. CCleaner is not coded yet to properly handle IE 10's cookies on Windows 7 and this was an effort to clean out cookies of IE 10. Sorry about that. :wacko:

 

Should I assume that FileKeys 1 to 3 also remove cookies regardless of Saves ?

huh? yes this assumption is correct local service items are not listed nor covered by the cookies to keep setting

N.B. - I counted 17 of these "dangerous" rules in your Modified List - and ran out of fingers :rolleyes:

what happened to your other 3 fingers ?...??

Did something get rescribbled with this winapp file that would wipe out my search engine settings every time i run CCleaner? The winapp update is the only thing that I've done to the computer since it started happening this morning. It's annoying as all heck having to reapply my search engine settings every time i run CCleaner with this winapp file now.

 

I have found the Location of search engines (in IE10 Win8)

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes

There are known know entries in Winapp2.ini (or CCleaner's built in cleaning rules) which touch this key, are you sure you are not removing it using the registry integrity section or your Includes?

Does Windows automagically re-create the needed FileExts in there if they're actually needed?

No, i don't use includes. Haven't seen these entries in the registry cleaner either. Whenever i do run the registry tool, I usually have the same entries to deal with from a couple of small programs. They rebuild as well which is why i clean tham. But, no. Neither of those.

 

I haven't really spent any time with this since posting the issue. I just replaced the winapp2.ini file with the previous release and left it. I may reformat the pc a couple of times over the coming weekend and test out some theories I've read here. Depends on how nice it is outside.

 

I'm not really too concerned about it though. As I said, I'm content with the previous version for now.
