  1. It's simply the EICAR antivirus test file. Try saving it as something else rather than a text file because some av's ignore it completely if in a text document, try saving as: eicar.bat, eicar.com, etc., and it should find it. Or you can download it from the official Eicar website: http://www.eicar.org...s_test_file.htm I always try out EICAR if testing a new av to see how the detection/results display window is, it's a good and completely safe way to test your av before dealing with a real malicious detection.
  2. Microsoft Security Essentials while good however does run heavy on Windows XP, just see near the end of the Softpedia.com editors review of it for version 1 about the XP high resource and CPU usage, that comment still holds true even for version 2. I've had it installed a few times though in the past when having issues with Avast or AntiVir however I always end up removing it when the problem with the other antivirus is fixed.
  3. Indeed, and it's worth switching to one of the known good freeware antivirus' with a good reputation.
  4. Looks like a typo indeed! sDefault=False should be: Default=False
  5. You've got to realize that some of the applications are old, and some people may actually still use the old versions. So any changes would possibly only add-in new paths where things have been moved for backwards compatibility versus just outright removing support for old versions.
  6. I've tried just about all free AV's too, and while I agree MSE is very good it's a tidbit too heavy on Windows XP - but that's the fault of XP not having modern optimizations.
  7. Probably the forum software pruning itself, I don't necessarily like that myself but oh well. Those old posts can still be found using a Google search though which is probably how some people find ancient topics and resurrect them.
  8. Just a suggestion Winapp2.ini, when you update the file could you please edit post #1 in this topic with something like: Latest winapp2.ini file version: then post in the download link That way the download link would always be in post #1 without having to search the whole topic for any new versions you've updated. Might help to put a version number or date on it too, just a suggestion.
  9. The older key is required for older versions of the NVIDIA software, therefore the keys you've found would need to be an addition instead of completely removing the older keys, i.e.; just like this: [NVIDIA (Play On My TV)*] ; Removes the NVIDIA "Play On My TV" shell extension for .AVI, .MPG, .MPEG, and .WMV ; video files. The shell extension isn't necessary if you don't output to a TV! LangSecRef=3023 Detect=HKLM\Software\NVIDIA Corporation Default=False RegKey1=HKCR\AVIFile\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\PlayOnMyTV RegKey2=HKCR\mpegfile\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\PlayOnMyTV RegKey3=HKCR\W
  10. I wish this non-descriptive entry: [internet Logs*] LangSecRef=3025 DetectFile=%windir%\Internet Logs Default=False FileKey1=%windir%\Internet Logs|*.dmp FileKey2=%windir%\Internet Logs|*.log FileKey3=%windir%\Internet Logs|*.tmp FileKey4=%windir%\Internet Logs|*.zip could be changed to this descriptive entry, since it's for ZoneAlarm: [ZoneAlarm Internet Logs*] LangSecRef=3025 DetectFile=%windir%\Internet Logs Default=False FileKey1=%windir%\Internet Logs|*.dmp FileKey2=%windir%\Internet Logs|*.log FileKey3=%windir%\Internet Logs|*.tmp FileKey4=%windir%\Internet Logs|*.zip
  11. Here's some I've never submitted before in TwistedMetal's winapp2.ini, and since this winapp2.ini is very active I'll submit them here. You can put the asterisk in the program header/name wherever you wish so it's not seen as a default app cleaned by CCleaner. [File Shredder] ; Removes the recently shredded files history, possibly a privacy issue. LangSecRef=3024 Detect=HKCU\Software\Shredder Default=False RegKey1=HKCU\Software\Shredder\{FF14D9EE-48EB-4873-80AC-8E224BEE5823} [HandBrake (Crash Log)] ; Removes HandBrake's crash/stack dump overflow logs, since it crashes allot. L
  12. Good work Winapp2.ini! Now your chosen forum member name makes even more sense than ever now.
  13. You actually don't have to use it, simply uninstall it if you're fed up with it and grab a freeware av.
  14. Thank you for posting those metalj, this will help allot of people. I've updated the topic title to now reflect what this topic is about, it's now named: Support for browsers SRWare Iron, Comodo Dragon, and Chromium
  15. The same for me. It's however listed under Firefox in CCleaner.
  16. Erroneous amounts reported by CCleaner have happened before, and it really isn't our business to tell someone they've "faked it." It's just a bug report. On another note unfortunately Mozilla's dictionary doesn't seem to know allot of words or corrections from some words, which is why I use tinySpell free edition.
  17. In the blank winapp2.ini download that's all that's in there is the LangSecRef and the Important Information at the end of it, it's just a template to get you started. However; You have to paste in the SRWare Iron cleaner for it to work. If you're still having problems with this I've pre-made the winapp2.ini file which has SRWare Iron already in it, you can download it from here (only 1.05kb): http://www.mediafire.com/?xllmzzmz3hy As for UAC in Windows 7 I don't know, still on XP here where that doesn't exist.
  18. You can download a premade/blank winapp2.ini file from here. Make sure you unzip it into CCleaner's installed folder where CCleaner.exe is, by default this is: C:\Program Files\CCleaner Then all you have to do is open "C:\Program Files\CCleaner\winapp2.ini" in Notepad, and paste in the code listed post #8 of this topic into the blank winapp2.ini file, and click Save. Start CCleaner and you'll now see SRWare Iron listed.
  19. Yes and it allows for "Application Data" references to work on non-English versions of Windows, and also makes for shorter in character length cleaning routines.
  20. That would be too slow, and verging on the point if something needed wiped that much and for paranoia's sake it would be more time friendly to just remove the hdd and incinerate it.
  21. Indeed the %LocalAppData% is needed which has had support in CCleaner for many versions. People making winapp2.ini entries need to switch from using %userprofile%\application data to the new standard: %LocalAppData%
  22. Good ideal! For anyone wanting SRWare Iron support you can go directly to post #8 by equazcion by clicking this link.
  23. Since SRWare Iron is constantly be asked for support I'm pinning this topic title to make is much easier for people to find.
  24. I've had that issue before when using BitDefender, it always thought my now age old batch file cleaners in my Win98 backups are "Trojan.Deleters" but all they do is remove crap from the system - that was long before there was CCleaner, they're now obsolete.
