Winapp2.ini

Winapp2.ini additions

Recommended Posts

There needs to be a format that states "show on all versions but the specified version". For example:

DetectOS=|6.2| = could say "Show on all versions earlier than Windows 8, all versions later than Windows 8, but do not show on Windows 8.

I think you misunderstand the power of this thread, perhaps mention in ccleaner suggestions board.

Folder icons are missing text labels after hibernation or a certain period of time, so I have to restart explorer.exe. I can tell you this didn't happen when I took the advice saad2011 or the previous version of winapp2,ini.

 

I'll just remove it in the next version.

 

FWIW i haven't experienced this though

I believe you, though I'm wondering why other people haven't come forward. Thanks for removing.

 

Cheers for maintaining it for the last 3 years. I've been using this since 2008 when it was first introduced.

what is the danger of playing with WinSxS files?

even .tmp ones?

 

should be a big caveat - USER BEWARE.

Seeing as that linked page states "it's not really as big as it says" and other such admonitions I'd say leave it alone

There are a few other web pages referencing this file and stating to NOT remove it. I agree with Nergal's recommendation.

As per the file size, it is 2.95 GB. I wiped the file from the directory and no issues at all. After wiping the file I reclaimed approx 3 GB on the hard disk!

is there any entries in winapp2.ini that change how we view the screen?

i mean, the font look smaller after i run ccleaner+winapp2.ini with another cleaning software esp at Start Menu

the font size currently at 100% which is default setting

i just want to make sure that there is no entry in winapp2.ini that can do that

It is very tempting to remove reserve.tmp; however, I am going to wait until after Windows 8.1 is installed. If the file is still there, I most likely will save it on a flash drive and delete it from Winsys.

Re: [Windows SCM Logs*]

 

As I was saying, that wiping these log files are completely safe. The problem is when you wipe SCM.EVM files. If you'd like to add this entry back to Winapp2.ini then it should be changed to:

 

[Windows SCM Logs*]
LangSecRef=3025
Detect=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows
Default=False
FileKey1=%WinDir%\System32\LogFiles\Scm|*.*
ExcludeKey1=FILE|%WinDir%\System32\LogFiles\Scm|*.EVM;*.EVM.1;*.EVM.2;*.EVM.3;*.EVM.4

 

A snapshot is attached with this message showing which files shouldn't be deleted.

Thanks for the update. I never had any issues from using the original entry, but having looked in the scm folder I don't have any evm files so maybe just been lucky.

Original - already in winapp2.ini:

[Windows XP Error Reporting*]
DetectOS=|5.2
LangSecRef=3025
Default=False
FileKey1=%WinDir%\pchealth\ERRORREP|*.*|RECURSE

 

Updated, added FileKey2 and Warning. Not sure about the DetectOS, I thought XP was 5.1. Also on my system FileKey2 will only get cleaned as it's listed below using %userprofile%.

[Windows XP Error Reporting*]
DetectOS=|5.2
LangSecRef=3025
Default=False
Warning=This deletes the error reports generated by Windows (such as failed Windows Updates) that Microsoft Error Reporting requests to upload directly to Microsoft. Make sure you upload the error reports before using this cleaner, that way Microsoft may be able to fix the problem in a future Windows Update.
FileKey1=%WinDir%\pchealth\ERRORREP|*.*|RECURSE
FileKey2=%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\PCHealth\ErrorRep\QSignoff|*.*

Edited by Andavari
Added info and fixed the wording in the Warning=

The ExcludeKey1 addition to Windows SCM Logs* still not resolve the basic issue of this code causing Windows Scheduled Tasks to re-run any scheduled task that has the option "Run task as soon as possible after a scheduled start is missed" activated. The logs in the SCM folder are used to control this option.

 

I strongly recommend that Windows SCM Logs* not be re-added to Winapp2.ini.
