  1. Yes. If the files are in the folder I mentioned in my original post, they can be safely deleted.
  2. That's strange. My installation of CCleaner had the option checked by default. Maybe the scheduled task didn't get removed when I uninstalled the previous version first. Anyway, as this is the Speccy forum, I'll leave it there!
  3. I have noticed that both Speccy and CCleaner contain an option to skip the user account warning that appears when they are opened - by setting up the necessary scheduled task. However, whereas CCleaner has this option selected by default, Speccy does not. In order to give a more uniform look, would it not make more sense for Speccy to have this option selected by default as well?
  4. Would it be possible to add an option to CCleaner to clear the history that accumulates when you search from the Charms Bar. This would be the automated equivalent of opening PC Settings, selecting Search and Apps, and clicking the Clear button. For the time being, the corresponding winapp2.ini entry is as follows: [* Charms Bar Search History] LangSecRef=3025 Default=True FileKey1=%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\ConnectedSearch\History|*.lnk
  5. Hello Richard, The files and folders you mention correspond to Windows Search content indexing. They can be deleted as follows: 1. Stop the Windows Search (wsearch) service via the "services.msc" MMC applet. 2. Delete all files and folders in "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Search\Data". 3. Delete the DWORD registry value at "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows Search" called "SetupCompletedSuccessfully". 4. Restart the Windows Search (wsearch) service via the "services.msc" MMC applet. Windows will begin indexing from scratch, recreating any folders as necessary. Naturally, the additio
  6. TASK SCHEDULER FileKey1=%systemroot%\Tasks|SchedLgU.txt The above key is locked by the Task Scheduler service, which is not stoppable. However, the key can be added to the PendingFileRenameOperations registry value found at "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager". AVG FREE 8.5 FileKey1=%programdata%\avg8\emc\Log|*.log FileKey2=%programdata%\avg8\Log|*.log FileKey3=%programdata%\avg8\Log|*.xml FileKey4=%programdata%\avg8\scanlogs|*.log FileKey5=%programdata%\avg8\update\backup|*.*|REMOVESELF FileKey6=%programdata%\avg8\update\download|*.bin Most of the "*.
  7. The following items could be useful additions to CCleaner. I have used the default Vista environment variables in my examples so please adjust to suit your particular operating system. 1. GENERAL [a] Currently, during an analysis or actual cleaning, by and large it is only deleted files that are listed in the resulting log. The log would be more complete if it also included registry entries and folders that are deleted. Certain log files (eg %systemroot%\WindowsUpdate.log) are locked during normal Windows usage, but can be safely deleted via the same PendingFileRenameOperations
  8. Following are a few additional items that could be included in CCleaner (the locations given are for Vista): 1. Windows Photo Gallery - %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Windows Photo Gallery 2. Digital Certificates Cache - %userprofile%\AppData\LocalLow\Microsoft\CryptnetUrlCache\Content\* - %userprofile%\AppData\LocalLow\Microsoft\CryptnetUrlCache\MetaData\* 3. Event Logs - Equivalent batch file syntax: for /F "tokens=*" %%I in ('wevtutil el') do @wevtutil cl "%%~I" 4. Microsoft Management Console - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Management Console\Recent File List 5. A
  9. Hello Jonathan, I am a Vista Home Premium user and have not experienced any problems myself with regard to deleting the entire contents (files and subfolders) of the VirtualStore folder, regardless of which applications have been installed or uninstalled. Files and subfolders get rebuilt in the VirtualStore folder as and when necessary. As a test, simply open the VirtualStore folder in Windows Explorer and rename one of the subfolders relating to a particular application. Now open the application in question. You should find that subfolders and files are recreated in VirtualStore as
  10. CCleaner does not appear to automatically clean AVG 8.0 temporary files. In Windows Vista, the program stores these files in the following locations: "%programdata%\avg8\update\download\*.bin" "%programdata%\avg8\emc\Log\*.log" (currently locked and not deletable by default) "%programdata%\avg8\Log\*.log" (some logs deletable, others are locked) "%programdata%\avg8\Log\*.xml" "%programdata%\avg8\scanlogs\*.log" "%programdata%\avg\update\backup\*.*" If these entries could be included in CCleaner as standard, this would be appreciated. Regards DJ
  11. If you open Control Panel, Performance Information and Tools, Advanced Tools, and select "Generate a system health report", Windows Vista will, after approximately one minute, generate a system diagnostic report showing potential areas that could be affecting your systems performance and reliability. The information for these reports is created in "%systemdrive%\PerfLogs\System\Diagnostic\<date>" and can be viewed immediately upon creating the report or at any other time from the Reliability and Performance Monitor (Reliability and Performance, Reports, System, System Diagnostics, &
  12. This would be a welcome addition to CCleaner. In Windows Vista, the path to the icon cache file is "%localappdata%\IconCache.db". Even though the relevant settings can be added to winapp2.ini, it would be good to see the option included as standard in the program. Regards DJ
  13. Currently, Windows Vista event logs can be cleaned by running an advanced command prompt, or disabling User Account Control, and typing... wevtutil el > EventLogs.txt ...to list all available event logs to a file called EventLogs.txt, followed by... wevtutil cl > logname ...where "logname" is one of the logs listed in the EventLogs.txt file that requires clearing. Annoyingly, if User Account Control is enabled the event logs cannot be cleared with a batch file, even when set to "Run As Adminstrator" from its properties, and access is denied. The majority o
  14. I appreciate that there may be some overlapping information between the custom winapp2.ini file and what I have written here, but the original point I was trying to make was that I would like to see the features I mentioned included in CCleaner as standard because some of them can take up large amounts of hard disk space just for the sake of logging. Regards DJ
  15. Another option would be to open the registry editor (RegEdit) and export the key, "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VB and VBA Program Settings\CCleaner", to a registry (.reg) file. Following any future installation of CCleaner, double click the .reg file you created to restore your previous settings. Regards DJ
