  1. I actually liked having the means to use ccleaner to remove some of those logs and scans. This sounds like one of those requests you read about over in the avast! threads. You need to know what your av is doing and have the means to clean it up. It didn't hurt anything having the mse option. All you have to do is update and scan and the warnings go away. Another great example of the old he who sacrifices liberty for safety will have neither gag brought courtesy of the fear mongering and then because of this those of us who find it useful are at their mercy.
  2. I haven't really messed around too much with trying to dig around and read what it's doing. In fact, once I saw that there was no way to control what flash does, I removed IE10 and reinstalled flash itself. You could watch video and all of that but unlike standard install of flash there was no means of accessing settings. Flash likes to just give itself permission to do things that I don't want it to do by default so because of that IE 10 went away from my pc. At least now, I'm back to being able to control what flash does. I might install it on a junk computer and try to figure out how it
  3. Yep. I never got an answer as to why winapp2.ini kept deleting my search settings either after the last update. Should know better I suppose.
  4. Well, you can install IE 10 on Windows 7 now, which I did. I don't know. I'm not really worried about it so much that it's annoying. I don't have flash installed yet still have a Adobe flash folder being created. CCleaner winapp2.ini is still showing an Adobe flash listing as well as Adobe /flash settings entry and if I go to the flash settings manager online it confirms that I don't have fladsh installed. Yet, there are settings for it some place apparently if CCleaner is showing it. I swear I hate flash. Hate it with a passion. With IE 10 using html 5 why the heck do I need adobe flash? I do
  5. Does anyone know why IE 10 for windows 7 keeps creating a Adobe folder in the Roaming folder of the users/app data ? I don't have flash installed so am wondering why every time I delete the thing that IE 10 keeps recreating it . I know it's probably off topic but figgered this to be the best place to get an answer or maybe some idea why.
  6. No, i don't use includes. Haven't seen these entries in the registry cleaner either. Whenever i do run the registry tool, I usually have the same entries to deal with from a couple of small programs. They rebuild as well which is why i clean tham. But, no. Neither of those. I haven't really spent any time with this since posting the issue. I just replaced the winapp2.ini file with the previous release and left it. I may reformat the pc a couple of times over the coming weekend and test out some theories I've read here. Depends on how nice it is outside. I'm not really too concerned abo
  7. Yep. I know. It definitely is the winapp2.ini file causing the issue though. I removed it ( the newest release - the one that was causing the issue) and put the previous release of the winapp2.ini file that I copied from my sons computer on this one that had the issue with the updated one and it didn't have the problem. I'm just going to stay away from any newer updates to this thing, I think. Or at least until I take the time to go through the updated one myself to find what the problem is with it. Thanks though. I can't really complain about it. I've been using this program for years
  8. No, I don't ever let Windows update anything on it's own. I let it check for them and then I go through them and choose accordingly. Have removed winapp2.ini and the issue went away. Ixquick search engine/IE 9 on a Windows 7 64 bit machine. Also, I didn't tick any new additions after applying the latest winapp2.ini file. I just left them as they were prior to installation of the most recent file. In the mean time, I'm going to pull the winapp2.ini file off of my sons computer and install it on this one that had the issue prior to removing the updated one and verify that it doesn't have
  9. Yes, the winapp2.ini file is installed. As I had mentioned, the winapp2.ini was the file that I had updated. Updated meaning right click/save as and the usual overwrite. It was after I removed the winapp2.ini file that the problem went away. Of course, now I don't have all of those extras but I'll not reinstall it until I know that the issue has been fixed. I didn't tick anything that wasn't already ticked prior to updating it, just to add. This is a Windows 7 64 bit machine, btw.
  10. Did something get rescribbled with this winapp file that would wipe out my search engine settings every time i run CCleaner? The winapp update is the only thing that I've done to the computer since it started happening this morning. It's annoying as all heck having to reapply my search engine settings every time i run CCleaner with this winapp file now.
  11. This is happening to me as well now since updating the winapp file this morning. Except I don't use Google. I use Ixquick. Same problem with the search settings being wiped out.
  12. I think he was talking about my reference to the fact that nothing had changed on my system besides the ccleaner/winapp2.ini. Obviously microsoft updates change ones system when left unattended to run amuk. Too much confusion and miscommunication sometimes leads to the original issue being spun six ways from Tuesday and ignored. As I said, I'll figure it out. Was just adding to the thread because I too have the same problem. Doesn't mean that the fix is the same as someone elses or is conforming to an alternate operating systems resolution to the problem.
  13. Right. And yes, I do prohibit them. I usually just wait for them to come out and do them myself. I don't know. I'll figure it out.
  14. Yeah, it's not disabled. Never has been. It's automatic. Something has wiped out my restore points since updating and running the latest version of ccleaner. Might be something in the winapp2.ini file since i updated that as well without first reviewing it.. That's the only thing that changed from the time I had restore points until the time that I did not besides the ccleaner update itself. Thanks though.
  15. CCleaner shows a blank screen for my system restore points as wel. It only happened after i did the latestupdate. I'm using windows 7 home premium though and not xp. I remember when this happened a long time ago too but forgot how i fixed it. I know it really annoyed me to no end until I fixed it...myself as well. And it's annoying me nowtoo since I forgot how i fixed it the last time.
