You forgot to remove 'More' from [StarCraft II More *] entry.

There is already a StarCraft II * entry (and it does something different enough from More * that I think they should be kept separate)

If you have a better name suggestion though I will change it to that.

Modified entry:  [Samsung Magician *]

Added RegKey1

[Samsung Magician *]
LangSecRef=3021
Detect=HKLM\Software\Samsung Magician
Default=False
FileKey1=%LocalAppData%\VirtualStore\Program Files*\Samsung\Samsung Magician|*.log;*.txt|RECURSE
FileKey2=%LocalAppData%\VirtualStore\Program Files*\Samsung\Samsung Magician\Log*|*.*
FileKey3=%ProgramFiles%\Samsung Magician\Logs|*.*
FileKey4=%ProgramFiles%\Samsung\Samsung Magician\Log*|*.*
RegKey1=HKCU\Software\Local AppWizard-Generated Applications

I discovered that Samsung Magician is causing the regeneration of the HKCU\Software\Local AppWizard-Generated Applications key on my systems.  Therefore I added RegKey1 to Samsung Magician.  Below is the registry export of this key.   I see [SetRegistryKeys Leftovers *] is no longer included in Winapp2.ini.  I do suspect that other third party programs that users may install also set this key, but SM is the only one I have on my system (that I have identified thus far).  

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Local AppWizard-Generated Applications]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Local AppWizard-Generated Applications\SamsungMagician]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Local AppWizard-Generated Applications\SamsungMagician\Settings]

I think it might be a good idea to insert about line 704 that it's the start of non-browser entries.....  Going to try that winapp2 later today...

That link gets the file as a web page - is there a link to get it as a text file?

Note: the link is:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Local AppWizard-Generated Applications\SamsungMagician]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Local AppWizard-Generated Applications\SamsungMagician\Settings]
 

I googled that key and it seems largely related to PUPs in general (at least, forums posts about it seem related to PUPs

It might be better to target specifically the Magician key for this reason.

I think RegKey1=HKCU\Software\Local AppWizard-Generated Applications\SamsungMagician

would be more appropriate here

Just remember that that link is transient and will not remain up-to-date with the master, and can be destroyed at any time. That branch is my patch branch where changes I make to winapp2.ini wait until they're merged into the public release.

Thoughts on deleting "C:\Users\Galloway\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\yfqe01c0.default\ShutdownDuration.json.tmp" ?

I would imagine this to be part of Firefox telemetry

 

[Telemetry *]
LangSecRef=3026
SpecialDetect=DET_MOZILLA
Default=False
FileKey1=%AppData%\Mozilla\FireFox\Profiles\*|Telemetry*.*
FileKey2=%AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*\datareporting\archived|*.jsonlz4|REMOVESELF
FileKey3=%AppData%\Mozilla\FireFox\Profiles\*\saved-telemetry-pings|*.*
FileKey4=%LocalAppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*|ShutdownDuration.*

 

should work

Someone associated “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Local AppWizard-Generated Applications” with Windows before. Some people do not do any testing before posting entries here. We should be extra careful. We should also be careful when we see an entry’s FileKey’s pointing to %ProgramFiles%\ because some people provide entries that remove program’s help, manual, eula and url files as we recently fixed some of those entries.

[SetRegistryKey Leftovers*] was added back on 1-Dec-2013 ;)

Please note the explanation for the justification of this new entry back then.

The whole first post needs to be updated, to be honest, especially the " How to make your own Winapp2.ini entry" part. We are missing some variables and langsecref.

A new entry making guide would be better hosted on the GitHub with a link to it from the master post in this thread. You are correct in that much of the first post has outdated or incomplete information.

That explanation does suit it better. I think including it even as a volatile entry is fine as there's no expectation that this key exists under normal circumstances (based on that the original contributor said in their email)

I think the entry listed below should be removed. It deletes files you purposely save.

[StarCraft II More *]
Section=Games
Detect=HKLM\Software\Blizzard Entertainment\StarCraft II
Default=False
Warning=This will delete all of your image uploads, replays, and screenshots.
FileKey1=%Documents%\StarCraft II\ImageUploads|*.*|RECURSE
FileKey2=%Documents%\StarCraft II\Replays|*.*|RECURSE
