  1. I am new to Winapp2 and tried to use it for CCLeaner. I downloaded newest winapp2ool.exe from github and put it into CCLeaner installation directory (with winapp2.ini). Then I started winapp2.ini and selected 2.Trim--->1. Run (default) to trim all unfound applications on my system from winapp2.ini file. Afterwards I started CCleaner v5.78 and inspected in Custom Clean--->Applications all remaining entries with stars Surprisingly a lot of them still appears: E.g. for Opera and Brave browser. I never installed them. So why are they NOT trimmed/removed from winapp2.ini (...and CCleaner)?
  2. When I go to Custom Clean then for some browsers the deletable items are listed. Is the deletion for portable browser installations suitable as well?
  3. When I go to Custom Clean then users can find a lot of options in each section. How can I enable ALL options of such a section (e.g. Google Chrome) with ONE Click? Do I really have to tick every checkbox manually step by step?
  4. I section "Custom Clean"--->Applications after a lot of entries a star * appear. What does that mean?
  5. Currently I am running portable version of CCleaner v5.44 but want to migrate/update to portable Version v5.77. Very important is that I can keep all my approx 60-70 specified INLCUDE directories and KEEP cookies settings Can I simply copy "ccleaner.ini" from old CCleaner installation folder to new CCleaner installation folder? Will new CCleaner v5.77 successfully recognize all these old, previous settings?
  6. CCleaner offers to clean cookies. Can CCleaner clean cookies from portable versions of browsers as well? From where does CCLeaner know where to find portable browser installations? I need in Cookie panel a new column showing the location of the cookie
  7. Ok, you are explaining why CCleaner is CURRENTLY so slow. But that doesn't mean that CCleaner will be slow forever. Other washer/eraser tools show that the task could perform MUCH faster. Maybe CCleaner should implement: - direct MFT/Cluster/NTFS access instead of using windows file opening DLLs - use concurrent, bundled threads - other possible tricks like grouping of cluster wiping So there is much room for CCleaner improvements. Could you put this on your feature request/todo list? I prefer to use only ONE tool instead of multiple. Since CCleaner is good for many other tasks I am willing to elect it as my one-and-only utiltity. But erasing performance is really a problem. Thank you Thomas
  8. Due to my observations I performed the following experiment (on 64bit Win7 with 16GB memory): I have a huge dir tree with approx 100000 files between 10kb and 1MB each with a total size of approx 20GB I added/included this dir tree as additional folder to wipe. When I perform a CCleaner run it takes around 7 hours (!) to clean all these files (remaining clean stuff is negligible) Before cleaning it with CCleaner I made a copy of it. As comparison benchmark I performed a wiping of this duplicate dirtree with other tools like WipeFile. Surprisingly the WipeFIle requires only ~30 minutes for the same task. That means CCleaner is significantly slower than other tools. - CCLeaner uses "Secure file deletion Simple Overwrite (1 pass) - WipeFile uses Random overwrite (1 time) This is disappointing I suggest urgently to improve wipe speed in the next CCleaner release. Thank you Thomas
  9. In former times I could download a portable version of CCleaner. I do not find this download any more. Is it abolished? Thomas
  10. On my Win7 system I have two independent Firefox installations: - The first "normal" installation of v58.0.2 - The second, portable Firefox v52.60 Firefox ESR version In CCleaner I defined a couple of Cookies which should be kept. When I run now CCleaner it detects and cleans successfully the cookies of the first Firefox installation since it knows the profile path from registry. Unfortunately CCleaner does NOT recognize and clean the second Firefox installation. Is there a way to let CCleaner clean the second Firefox installation (especially the cookies which are not in the "keep"list) as well? Thomas
  11. ok, thank you. When I read the linked guide it does not become clear what I should specify as path. Assume I have Firefox ESR then I could specify: D:\FirefoxESR\Data or D:\FirefoxESR\Data\profile A subfolder D:\FirefoxESR\Data\profile\sam as mentioned as example in the guide does NOT exist. So what should I write in ccleaner.ini?
  12. As far as I can see CCLeaner looks into Registry to find browser installations on the current system and apply afterwards e.g. cookie washer. It works. BUT what if I setup PORTABLE browser installation (like Firefox ESR or Portable Chrome)? Since these browser installations do not use Registry CCleaner cannot find them. How can I tell CCleaner to apply Cookie washing rules onto these portable browser installations as well? I can imagine that there is an option to enter base pathes of those portable browser installation but cannot find them. Thomas
  13. When will this option be implemented?

  15. I installed Defraggler on an USB flash drive and setup the options according to my needs. And I enabled "Save all settings to ini file"! The *.ini file in installation directory is created. When I plug out now the USB flash drive and insert it in another computer and start it there, then all my previous settings are reset to the default values. Why? Do 64bit and 32bit version of Defraggler share the same *.ini file? Does it matter if the InstallPath in *.ini file is different? As a new drive letter is assigned on second computer the InstallPath is not valid any more. Thomas
