  1. My guess is the zoom history (or per-site preference) is stored in: C:\Users\<myAccount>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Preferences Within that file, I found the following string (newlines added for clarity): {"default_zoom_level":{"x":0}, "per_host_zoom_levels":{"x": {"<siteURL>":{"last_modified":"13193563712019947","zoom_level":2.223901085741545}},... ... } which looks something like XML where the default zoom level (as an offset) is specified followed by records within that record for specific sites and their zoom levels. That is a
  2. hazelnut, the rawinfopages article was already mentioned in my opening post. As for an option within Chrome to purge the zoom history, I also included a link to a bug ticket asking for that feature to Chrome (which also linked to even older threads asking for the feature). The feature was added; however, the bug ticket says to add "Site settings" to the items included under "Clear browsing data" but, in fact, it was the "Content settings" item that got added (or Site Settings was included under Content Settings) and under which zoom history got included. Using Chrome's own "Clear browsi
  3. nukecad, nice stab at trying to determine the source of the problem but it assumes that CCleaner is purging the zoom history (part of Content Data) and that Chrome's sync is putting it back. Nope, not true. Disable Chrome's sync. Visit a number of sites where you change the zoom away from the default, like using Ctrl+mousewheel to zoom in or out. Exit Chrome. Reload Chrome and visit chrome://settings/content/zoomLevels. Yep, those sites where you changed the zoom level are STILL listed in Chrome's zoom history. And that was with Chrome's sync disabled! CCleaner is not deleting the
  4. (Originally I noticed the zoom history was storing a list of sites I visited where the zoom level was changed and that's what I started noting in my report here; however, then I noticed per a bug ticket that the zoom history would get purged by using Chrome's "Clear browsing history" function and electing to include "Content settings". Yet CCleaner has no option to include purging of Chrome's content settings - so users are stuck having to use both Chrome's "Clear browsing history" with content data selected and then using CCleaner. A cleaner CCleaner usage would be to have CCleaner do the C
  5. I as using CCleaner 5.43.6522 (free) which notified me there was a newer version. I downloaded and installed 5.44.6575. When loaded, it now pukes out a spam window at the lower right corner of the screen. CCleaner has become adware flashing ads in my face. No thanks. Luckily I still had the installer for the older version and used that to step on the new adware version. I've used CCleaner for many years, so many that I don't remember when I started using it. Time to look for replacement(s) to supplant the functionality in CCleaner free and don't have ads popping up on the screen. A
  6. A polite installer would offer the option to opt-out (since most times bundleware is opt-in, by default). If the installer bundles other installers or links to them then it should provide a separate screen or option to NOT install any of the bundleware. When I re-ran the CCleaner installer (from Piriform's server), but before actually committing to an install, I found no option to opt-out of Google Chrome. If Piriform's installer is bypassing an opt-out screen (and they opt-in, by default) then that is a bug in their installer. Piriform *has* bundled Google Chrome before with their inst
  7. By the way, I downloaded from the CCleaner builds page and then did a binary file compare with what I got from FileHippo. No difference. The files were exact duplicates of each other. It is possible that FileHippo misleads with the download links on their web page. What looks like the download button might be for something else. What I see when Piriform sent me to the FileHippo page looked like the captured image at: http://imgur.com/a/0NQQo I just downloaded from FileHippo again and did a binary file compare against the one downloaded from Piriform's build page. Again they we
  8. If Piriform wants us getting their installer and not one wrapped with another [web] installer at some file hosting site then Piriform should provide download links that point to files that are on Piriform's server. Ccleaner told me there was a new update. It was Ccleaner's update checker that specified the URL for my default web browser to load a page at Piriform's site. At THAT time the code Piriform delivered in THEIR web page had the "No thanks" button take me to FileHippo. Why would Piriform randomly code their own web page to point at a file hoster that cannot be trusted? When the
  9. Ccleaner was prompting me that there was a newer version (5.33.6162). I followed Piriform's web pages for the free version which takes me to a file download from FileHippo. When I ran that installer, I elected the Customize option (which I always do to avoid bloatware that is bundled in with installers). Instead of running a local installer, I got a web installer (stub installer) that yanks the product from some server. This was not a local install. After the install completed, I find that Google Chrome got installed on my computer. I specifically used the Customize in the installer t
  10. Looks like everyone or most respondents focused on just Internet Explorer. I said "All web browsers have had the DOM Storage feature for many years now." Each web browser (that CCleaner supports) is listed as a separate program under the Applications tab (with the exception for IE which is shown under the Windows tab). Each web browser has its own location for its DOM storage whether that be in a folder or within a database file. If DOM storage is saved in a folder, tis easy to eradicate outside of the web browser, like adding the folder to the option in CCleaner to delete files in that
  11. When clicking on the Start menu button, there is a jumplist displayed of the most recently used programs. In the Windows 7 Start menu, it is in the left column (under the Pinned section if any programs have been pinned to the Start menu); see attached image. This lists recently loaded programs (versus the right-column Recent Items entry that shows recently opened documents). This jumplist can cluttered with programs the user does not want to currently see; i.e., they would like to start from scratch and rebuild the recent list. It is also a privacy issue where the user does not want to
  12. There are many defaults configured for each web browser but that does not mean they are oriented to the user's preferences. In fact, and sad to say, rare few users visit their web browsers settings (all of them) because they don't care, assume the vendor is producing a product in the user's interest rather than some web sites, or don't understand the settings. Most web browsers come pre-configured with the option enabled to support the meta tag that will automatically redirect them to another page or even another domain without ever informing the user. All come pre-configured to allow mixed co
  13. I also had DOM Storage disabled in Internet Explorer for a long time, maybe several years. Eventually I started hitting more sites where their page misbehaved or content was missing. I'd disable anything regarding blocking (adblocking, site blocking, tracking protection lists, etc) and still couldn't get the site to behave. I play crossword puzzles and at some point the USA Today crossword puzzle page stopped working. I'd get the page but the puzzle was missing. I got some free time and decided to look at their page code. I probably use the Dev Tools feature in IE (F12 key) to figure
  14. Jessie, because you are deleting files, you can use the Include feature in CCleaner rather than figure out how to write an .ini file. To delete registry entries requires using an .ini file but files and folders are easy to add to CCleaner. In CCleaner, click on the Options category on the left. Then click on the Include button. Click on the Add button. Drive or Folder: %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\DOMStore\ File Types: All Files Options: Include files and subfolders This will have CCleaner wipe the DOM cache but only for Internet Explorer. Because it is an inc
  15. Thanks, Andavari, on the info about where Internet Explorer stores its DOM storage. I can add that either to the winapp2.ini or winsys2.ini files or go to Options -> Include in CCleaner to add that path. Like my other thread on clearing out AX and TPL entries in the registry, there is a workaround but I'd prefer Piriform to add a standard checkbox under IE and the other web browsers so other users not so familiar with the workings of the web browser can also partake of clearing their DOM storage (and perhaps bring it to their attention about this newer method of sites storing data on the
