Winapp2.ini additions

Recommended Posts

There are softer reg edits to the same end

Why would we want the "same end" isn't that the whole point I'm getting at, we don't want that end.

I wasn't suggesting anything of the sort.

I took the matter to be mute at your first post, and completely understand and agree.

I wasn't being belligerent or argumentative.

 

I was speaking outside of Winapp2.ini.

I've deleted the entry.

The only thing is some cleaners that may not seem like they should be made available via the normal winapp2.ini (file) for average consumption of users due to the risk of using them could possibly be something Winapp2.ini (person) could have if he wanted it in his other collection of stuff not for average consumption, remember he was keeping some of those not that long ago.

Yeah I kind of gave up on those, primarily because I couldn't think of a good way to get the point across that they were not generic cleaning entries, and would scrub potentially important stuff.

Some of the people in this forum start fighting even on a suggestion. Have you noticed the entries listed below? Their Warnings explain everything.

I present the same argument I made to FreeRyde. These are not traditionally thought of as Junk files. Wanrings are nice but should be thought of along the lines of "The USER will, with a rough frequency of 75%, nit read this. Are they going to notice the breakage immediately?" Even if they do read it will they remember "that one time some warning popped up before the ran that one program 8 months ago." In the case of the first entry Saad mentioned definitely not. And the second one, woe be unto the person who loses all of their iPhone backup information because they didn't notice or forgot about the warning.

Also, I'm not fighting with the entries I decry, nor with the entry maker, I am presenting an (weighted by my "moderatorship" perhaps but still) fellow user's opinion on the dangers of adding things which we techies can deal without but would cripple for days the millions of users who aren't.

This stance goes back to the Windows Media Player Databases entry which either initially was "media player more" (or maybe was just noticed) and integrated into CCleaner's Windows Media Player entry, by the devlopers who, in all honesty trusted our entries to be safe, without the warning (see my argument against warnings above anyway) and resulted in MULTIPLE I lost my music library posts.

Does anyone know why IE 10 for windows 7 keeps creating a Adobe folder in the Roaming folder of the users/app data ? I don't have flash installed so am wondering why every time I delete the thing that IE 10 keeps recreating it .

 

I was thinking it's because of Adobe Flash Player, but you don't have that installed. I know under the old IE 8, and even other browsers just opening them causes the Adobe folder to be created under WinXP, but I figured that was because I have Adobe Flash Player installed.

I don't have flash installed so am wondering why every time I delete the thing that IE 10 keeps recreating it . I know it's probably off topic but figgered this to be the best place to get an answer or maybe some idea why.

I believe IE 10 was created for Windows 8 which has adopted FLASH as something that Microsoft will administer.

Perhaps IE 10 and FLASH became deeply integrated.

When Windows 7 users accepted IE 10 they may have accepted a Trojan Horse that is primed for FLASH updates - not from Adobe but via Microsoft Updates.

Saying IE10 may contain a trojan horse if Flash And Microsoft is involved is uncalled for Alan.

 

Flash on Win 7 which has IE10 installed, still has to be updated in the 'traditional' way. It is on Win 8 that it is done via Win Updates.

I agree that Win 7 is still updated as before,

but it occurred to me that "feature creep" when Win 8 and IE 10 were developed,

might have resulted in the expectation of the need for "Roaming folder of the users/app data",

and perhaps IE 10 prepares the ground even if it takes no part in the installation of Flash.

I remember back in the late 1990s when Flash Player was an offered update on the Windows Update site, and was actually already built into Win98. So it wouldn't surprise me if Windows, Internet Explorer, and other installed software that require Flash to be installed don't just automagically create/re-create the Adobe folder out of sheer necessity. Not really a big deal though if Flash isn't installed as it would be an empty folder, and Windows is full of those anyways.

I haven't really messed around too much with trying to dig around and read what it's doing. In fact, once I saw that there was no way to control what flash does, I removed IE10 and reinstalled flash itself. You could watch video and all of that but unlike standard install of flash there was no means of accessing settings. Flash likes to just give itself permission to do things that I don't want it to do by default so because of that IE 10 went away from my pc. At least now, I'm back to being able to control what flash does.

 

I might install it on a junk computer and try to figure out how it's built into IE 10. It's definitely a part of the browser/OS but very protected. If it can play flash video as a standalone then it still has the ability to give itself permissions (and whatever else) like Adobe does if you leave the defaults as they are on a standard flash install. That kind on non transparency annoys me more than anything.

 

I'm really thinking about replacing everything we have around here with a MAC os just on principle alone.

- Corrected 'Detect' ('Total Uninstall Backups' a no show in CCleaner)

There is no HKCU\Software\MartS\Total Uninstall

- There is no 'Analyzed Programs' folder (from v5) in version 6 (now called Installed Programs)

- Merged FileKey1 through 3

- Added .tun removal (program analysis database)

- Works for version 5 & 6

 

Recommend removal:

- 'Total Uninstall Logs' is a no show in CCleaner

- Detect doesn't work. There is no HKCU\Software\MartS\Total Uninstall

- There is no log or Log.txt or GID stored at Program Files \Total Uninstall

I installed and used the functions of versions 5 & 6... Perhaps version 4 released in 2007?

- Found it to be entirely useless.

It would be for the ancient/old v2.35 Last Freeware Version - I assume, which is available here. I know v2.35 does in fact create this registry key (so maybe not entirely "useless" for people still using it):

HKCU\SOFTWARE\MartS\Total Uninstall

 

Edit:

If it is for v2.35 maybe it would be wise to have the version number tacked onto the end of the cleaner name to disclose what version it's intended for.

I'll change that to Total Uninstall 2.35 Logs

It is ironic that an application that removes the residues of other applications should need CCleaner to remove its own residues.

Hi!

 

I'm new here, but I just want to give a notice, that the today update added VMware rule that delete all *.rnd files on systemdrive...

not only the VMware's. I think it's not good because it could be some vital file belonging to another program.

 

In my PC it tried to delete some The Bat! files - not vital but anyway...

I'd imagine that FileKey1 would also make using CCleaner unmercifully slow on some computers as it scours through the whole hard disk looking for those files.
