  1. Thanks for your reply. But I think the entry [Notifications *] is correct after all: I opened the wpndatabase.db you mentioned, scrolled through it and was shocked because I found many snippets of old emails at the end of the file. The wpndatabase.db-wal also contains many snippets of emails. These are traces of email notifications from Outlook. Wow, what a privacy risk! The wpndatabase.db-wal is also updated after new notifications from Outlook: Therefore I think that the entry [Notifications *] should remain and we should add the FileKey "%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Acti
  2. Revised entries: I think we can remove DetectOS if we correct the Detect paths. They only exist on the matching Windows versions. [Action Center *] LangSecRef=3025 Detect=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Action Center ... [Security and Maintenance *] LangSecRef=3025 Detect=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Security and Maintenance ... After some tests I am sure that the FileKey "%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\ActionCenterCache|*.*|RECURSE" belongs to the entry [Notifications *]. You can test it for yourself: Just safely remove a USB

  5. I understand why you want to remove it, but please always try to give a reason if you want to remove entries. Thank you very much.
  6. This may be on your system, but many Intel drivers do not create a registry key under HKCU. Therefore the Detect with HKLM should stay.
  7. Sorry, but that doesn't seem right: Microsoft no longer calls it "Action Center", but the "ActionCenterCache" folder (check the modification date) and the registry key "...\Security and Maintenance\Providers\EventLog " are still used by Windows 10. Also "ScreenShot Index" is still there. Please try it yourself: Just take a screenshot using WIN+Print and the registry value appears. "Sharing MFU" still seems to be used by some apps, e.g. the "Camera" app.
  8. Just my humble opinion: Normally the entries that are moved to Winapp3.ini are dangerous, because they could break a function or delete very important data. The entries for the icons do not break anything, because the bookmarks itself are still working after deleting the icons. Also, the entries have clearly understandable names and warnings and are disabled by default, like all Winapp2.ini entries. (As far as I know, the intention of the icon entries is to remove traces, since the browsers never delete the icons of removed bookmarks.) If we judge by "what most users want", we have to move man

  10. I know, I just wanted to show that using "\Microsoft.Xbox*_*\" is not possible without affecting the two separate apps.
  11. Okay, thanks for your reply. Then we should make a big entry, because the app "Game bar" would be affected as well. \Microsoft.Xbox*_*\ \Microsoft.XboxGamingOverlay_*\ \Microsoft.XboxOneSmartGlass_*\
  12. Unfortunately, I do not know it, because I have never used Xbox apps before. Maybe SMalik can tell us? (And/or we could use an ExcludeKey for this package.)
  13. I think you mean that we should merge all the individual entries into one [Xbox *] entry, right? Do you think we can use the following FileKey for this? Otherwise the entry will be very large. FileKeyX =%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.Xbox*_*\
  14. Thanks! I also found and fixed that yesterday. Normally we use Proper Case (Title Case) for the names of the entries. IMHO the lower case letter "b" is not so important.
  15. Question: As far as I know, the servers for the following messengers were shut down some time ago: AOL Instant Messenger Windows Live Messenger Yahoo! Messenger Therefore, the programs are useless without their servers and we could remove the following entries: [AIM *] [Windows Live Messenger *] [Windows Live Messenger Chat History *] [Yahoo Messenger *] [Yahoo Messenger Cache *] Are you okay with that? And do you know any other programs where the servers have been shut down in the meantime and the program became useless?
  16. For example, the "Windows.edb" file is the Windows Indexing database, and you can only delete it if you stop the "Windows Search" service.

  18. You should have one or more files (and/or a folder) with long apparently random names in C: with a creation date of the wipe and a big file size. If you delete them the free space should be back.
  19. Many thanks for all the replies and the revised entries. Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/ffcdd07e5fcf30b773dd144372ba8b35c0786852 Winapp3.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/3fa0712f357afaba2c1d665fa540255c410f7183 Happy New Year!
  20. Strange! On my systems CCleaner removes all font cache files without any permission issues. IMHO it is not riskier than cleaning other Windows related caches, as we will never know what Microsoft will change with the next feature update. Like SMalik, I never had any issues after cleaning the font cache. And I don't think anyone knows the correlations why the FileKey1 caused the boot issue on some systems.
  21. Question: Piriform has removed the font cache entry from CCleaner because it could cause a boot problem (if fast startup is enabled). Should we add the FileKeys of this entry to Winapp2.ini? [Font Cache] FileKey1=%WinDir%\System32|FNTCACHE.DAT FileKey2=%LocalAppData%|GDIPFONTCACHEV1.DAT FileKey3=%windir%\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local|FontCache*.dat It seems that FileKey1 is causing the problem, so we could remove it: https://forum.piriform.com/topic/52857-version-540/?tab=comments#comment-300971
  22. Thank you for your modified entry. Wouldn't it be possible to use "log*.txt"? Or are there any important "log*.txt" files?
  23. You can use the following methods to add other browsers: https://www.ccleaner.com/docs/ccleaner/advanced-usage/ccleaner-ini-files/how-to-clean-user-data-from-non-standard-mozilla-browsers CustomLocation1=CHROME|path_to_user_profile https://forum.piriform.com/search/?q=CustomLocation1=CHROME CustomLocation1=CHROME|C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Local\Epic Privacy Browser\User Data\Default
