Recovering deleting apps

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I was cleaning my laptop by deleting apps. But later on I found out that I was just deleting the entries in the software list and not really deleting the software. My problem now is that I dont know which application I have installed, because the list does not match the really installed software. 

How can I fix this? Of recover the list, so that is matches the really installed software.

Windows itself will still see the 'deleted' apps in the control panel (and/or settings) and you can still uninstall them from there..

If you''ve deleted the names from the list in CCleaner's Uninstall option then the simplest way to repopulate it should be to uninstall and then reinstall CCleaner itself.

You'll need the uninstall or CC will just remember what you have 'deleted' from the list before.
Of course uninstalling/reinstalling will also lose any other changes you had made to CCleaners default settings and you'll have to set them back again.

Here's the CCleaner documentation on the Uninstall tool. (Not that it helps much in this case):

Seems that on my backup NAS I put an export of all my software. So no need to uninstall and reinstall CCleaner at all :-). Still thanks for your advice.

LOL, yes restoring the list from a backup of CCleaners settings would be simpler.

I guess that we just get used to people who ask for help here because they haven't been doing backups.
