Winapp2.ini additions

Recommended Posts

Panda Cloud Antivirus > Panda Free Antivirus > now renamed to Panda Protection in version 18 and it's still fully compatible with WinXP. Although v18.0 has some issues on some systems which isn't just a WinXP only problem when looking at their support forums which is one of the reasons I suppose why they won't have v17.0.1 auto-update to v18.0. If someone wants v18.0 they have to manually download and install it, probably have to uninstall the older version first though.

 

Panda Protection v18.0 has an issue with not being able to complete a Full Scan - which is not cool after spending 75 minutes for it to just stop at 95%, I had to downgrade back to v17.0.1 for that reason.

It's still listed as "Panda Free Antivirus" and "Panda Antivirus Pro" on their site (and download sites). There is "Panda Global Protection" and "Panda Gold Protection" but they are their AV plus Internet Security and other stuff bundled in. Have you go a link to the standalone AV programs being renamed/replaced?

Just download the installer for what's referred to as "Panda Free Antivirus" v18.0, in the main GUI of the program it now has the name of: Panda Protection

 

That's what I saw when I installed v18.0.

If we really want to help many end users (and potential users) of Winapp2.ini, we should come up with a user friendly, easy-to-install/use tool that:

 

1.  Downloads the latest winapp2.ini

2.  Merges in the user's custom.ini

3.  Organizes the entries in alphabetical order.

4.  Runs a TRIM to match the user's system (no user interaction required)

5.  Stores the newly trimmed winapp2.ini in the CCleaner folder

 

---- all steps performed automatically....from start to finish.

 

Such a tool would most likely significantly increase the usage of winapp2.ini, particularly if it worked on XP, 7/8/10.   :)  IF I had the expertize to do it, I would, but I don't.

 

That would negate any need to worry about "obsolete" entries in winapp2.ini. 

 

Again, JMO

1,2,4,5 = voldermort

dunno about 3, maybe it will sort at 4

 

but

seem like no longer in development

TRIM incomplete@remove more that it should

got bug when you working with Portable Locations, winapp2.ini in ccleaner folder will get replaced too

if i'm not mistaken, voldermort download winapp2.ini from its own server so no custom url option

 

try it and report any bug/suggestion to him

he might be interested in releasing major update for voldermort

I never thought about that, knew you'd have good reason to state it, but couldn't find it called that when Googling. I shall be taking your word for it though, not installing v18 just to find out given the potential bugs you mentioned ;)

New Entry:  [CyberLink PowerDVD 16*]

[CyberLink PowerDVD 16*]
LangSecRef=3023
Detect=HKCU\Software\CyberLink
Default=False
FileKey1=%LocalAppData%\Cyberlink\PowerDVD*\cache\|*.*
FileKey2=%CommonAppData%\Cyberlink\Evoparser\|*.xml

Since some time has passed and nothing changed and no one answered me I ask again:

 

There is a folder called 'cache' (seems to be for faster startup) but the actual PowerDVD cache where all the thumbs, previews, BD-Live stuff etc. is saved and which needs cleaning is '%LocalAppData%\Cyberlink\PowerDVD*\Caches'.

I haven't found any download sites which are calling it by the new name, most are still calling it Panda Free Antivirus, some others are still calling it Panda Cloud Antivirus Free - those sites still also have old screenshots of previous versions because the new version looks nothing like the old versions

 

See here, look at Softpedia's screenshots, in particular screenshot 2 where it says: About Panda Protection

CCleaner's built-in FontCache entry does not remove these files. These are locked files and CCleaner Free version can only remove them in Safe Mode. I guess CCleaner Professional version can remove them when CCleaner is set to run on computer start. I have not tried this yet.

In my opinion, [FlashPlayer Settings*] and [Adobe Flash Player Settings*] should be removed from Winapp2.ini.  I do not think users really want to remove their FlashPlayer settings once they customize them to meet their security needs on their systems.  This is somewhat like removing backups via Winapp2.ini for registry cleaners.  Plus [FlashPlayer Settings*] doesn't work on the latest versions of Google Chrome anyhow.  :wacko:

I feel that this entry is something that will not be used by Winapp2.ini users because it doesn't work on normal CCleaner executions and going into Safe Mode is not a tactic that most users enjoy doing.

There are some entries in Winapp2.ini that do not remove locked files. For example, [MS Search More*], but it is a very useful entry, just like this one. Unfortunately, CCleaner does not have an option to wipe locked files on computer boot like some other privacy eraser programs.

Why not then add a warning that it mainly works in Safe Mode?

Or perhaps we could start a campaign to convince the developers of CCleaner to implement a "Delete on Reboot" option that could be used in the cleaning code.  Say call it |REBOOT| that could be used along side |REMOVESELF| and |RECURSE|.

Then the files would be deleted the next time the user reboots the computer.

And that's my biggest gripe about CCleaner, and the only reason I continue to use BleachBit alongside it. BleachBit can remove locked files after restarting the computer and after all these years CCleaner really should have that ability.
