Cleanning a portable/stand alone program

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

Is it possible to clean a portable/stand alone program ? If yes how do I add it to the cleaning list?

thanks

What program are you're wanting to clean?

 

If it stores settings in .INI files cleaning it probably wouldn't work, unless of course you had CCleaner delete the .INI files.

You can clean using the feature in 'Options > Include' if you don't want to make a winapp2.ini cleaning routine.

I want to clean Maxthon and G.chrome browsers, but as I move towards using more and more stand alone or portable programs it may be a good idea to use options+include, what kind of files type/options should I target? Thanks

I don't use Maxthon or Google Chrome so I don't know what you'd target in them. In allot of portable software you're only dealing with .INI files so that would be all that needs cleaned, however with portable web browsers you'll most likely have some files or folders for cache and cookies.

 

If you use any PortableApps.com software allot of the settings or MRU, etc., are stored in .REG files, for instance I have it clean my copy of VLC Portable using a batch file to delete a .REG settings file and then copy over a clean .REG file with no MRU or anything in it.
