yes I believe we two three are of the same mind on that, but sadly the question is brought up for one or the other every 3 or so pages :P

Looking at the above. I agree with adding a warning message to the below. It should be pointed out this file is used by Windows to do a normal built in defrag as welll. Some sits I have found do not recommend removing this file from your system as it may not be recreated. You might want to think about either removing completely or putting a Use with Caution message or only periodically as its only one ini

I would prefer that you not remove FileKey2 from this code because the built in code for MalwareBytes removes the quarantined items. I leave that one unchecked because I do not like removing quarantined security items as a normal cleaning element. I would like this cleaning element clean all logs on its own.

The above entry negates part of the features of Perfectdisk in that it prevents Perfectdisk from aligning programs so that the system will boot faster. I recommend that this entry before or a warning message be inserted. It may also negatively affect other third party defraggers (I do not know this for fact, but it may). The link below further explains how Perfectdisk interfaces with Layout.ini.

Suggested Warning message:

 

[Defragmentation List*]
LangSecRef=3025
Warning=DO NOT use if your system has PerfectDisk defragging software.
DetectFile=%WinDir%
Default=False
FileKey1=%WinDir%\Prefetch|Layout.ini

 

First time I saw this entry in R-Wipe&Clean few years back. East-Tec Eraser has it in their program for the last few years. I always have PerfectDisk on my system. Right now I have PerfectDisk 12.5 Pro. I also have R-Wipe&Clean that always removes this file, never had any issue. BTW this file is not a part of PerfectDisk program.

 

It also keeps information about the programs were removed from the system until it got recreated again.

Windows recreate this file after restarting the system as long as Superfetch (Vista-7) service is running. In case if you delete old one and need to recreate a fresh one right away here is a code:

I think we should change the LangSecRef of the entry listed below to bring the CCleaner's Freemake Video Downloader entry and this one in the same category.

 

[Freemake Video Downloader More*]

LangSecRef=3022

Detect=HKCU\Software\Freemake\FreemakeVideoDownloader

Default=False

FileKey1=%ProgramFiles%\Freemake\Freemake Video Downloader|trace.log

FileKey2=%Documents%\Freemake\FreemakeVideoDownloader|fvd.bin

FileKey3=%Documents%\Freemake\FreemakeVideoDownloader\History\Thumbnails|*.*

FileKey4=%Documents%\Freemake\FreemakeVideoDownloader\History|*.xml

this needs to move to winsys2 as Windows Error Reporting is in the Windows tab ( LangSecRef=3003 )

the Windows Media Player break outs replicate a lot of the default windows media player entry, perhaps a warning to Uncheck Windows Media Player or items may be deleted even if one of the breakout is unchecked

 

Both Real Player Trimmer and Realplayer converter only clean realplayer 12 (i.e. realplayer 15 uses HKCU\Software\RealNetworks\RealConverter\15.0\Preferences and HKCU\Software\RealNetworks\RealTrimmer\15.0\Preferences )
