Winapp2.ini additions

People don't read the "Warning" strings. Most of the time they just skim them, or (usually due to language reasons) can't understand them. I get dozens of emails every week from people who deleted things they intended to keep, simply due to a failure to rtfm.

Perhaps where one or more "Warnings" might apply there could be a one-off multi-choice technical question to determine competence to give "informed consent" to remove.

 

Might be a useful feature if added to CCleaner or related products that I dare not name :rolleyes:

You mean a Warning for the Warning stating

Warning please read all Warning Warnings as they warn you of things you of which should be aware

I agree a warning may be in order so people are aware of the caution. This may actually help people for those times when we get corrupted update files Windows refuses to re download.

[Windows Installer Patch Cache *]

Warning="Cleaning this Cache may result in being unable to uninstall software/patches or require you to have your original installation files!! Periodic Cleaning Only !"

New Entry

the entry in ccleaner only cleans the .tmps in the \is folder

not sure if it was a fluke but I kept getting .tmps here

 

Edit: haven't been able to recreate the .tmps getting placed in \Silverlight\ :blink:

Edit #2: was a corrupt mssl.lck file, can be removed as silverlight recreates them. added RECURSE to the Entry

If this works for someone else without resetting there preferences, this could be added to opera more.

FileKey6=%AppData%\Opera\Opera|*.dat

 

Cleaning those 9.dats listed in the link hasn't changed any of my settings and are recreated upon launching opera.

Opera is my secondary browser so most of my settings are still default.

[Windows Tracing*]

[search Everything Error Log*]
LangSecRef=3024
DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\Everything
Default=False
FileKey1=%ProgramFiles%\Everything|Errorlog.txt

Removed filename from DetectFile (was Everything.exe), because the .exe is usually named "Everything*version*.exe" and in my case it was "Everything-1.2.1.451a.exe" so the current entry in Winapp2.ini couldn't detect it.

RegKey2=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Tracing

 

I thought the CCleaner64.exe knows where to look for a registry entry on a 64-bit system?! Does it only work with "Detect" entries? Do we have to change most of the "RegKey" entries now?

It was not working for me on a Windows 7 64-bit system. It works fine on a 32-bit system.

Good to know, thanks. I thought CC64 checks and deletes both paths (with and without "Wow6432Node"). With this new knowledge we should check the other winapp2.ini entries which include "RegKey".
