Office XP in CCleaner Bug Reporting Posted June 17, 2010 Billjf, This is not a bug. Unticking various Office boxes won't help. Only unticking the ""Office XP"" box will save those settings. CC uses an embedded script that tells CC where various info can be found and what can be wiped. And in a number of cases CC simply wipes too much. But you can finetune the CC wiping process in such a way that it doesn't wipe those settings anymore. A. Click ""Options"", ""Exclude"". There you can tell CC which entries from the registry must be excluded from wiping. Add all the lines in the attachment to the registry exclude feature. Run CC with the option ""Custom Folders"", in the main screen of CC, ticked. If all is OK then CC won't wipe any setting of Office XP anymore. B. Now remove step by step one line at a time from the ""Exclude"" section (as programmed under (A ) and run CC again every time after removing one line. That's how you'll find out which line causes the settings of Office XP to be wiped. There could be more than one line that wipes settings that you want to keep. A matter of trial and error.
