  1. Sorry, I was wrong. The Firefox bug with the cache files is just a part of the problem. WebHD is absolutely right: CCleaners option "Firefox: Internet History" makes most of the favicons disappear! (CCleaner shows no files and 0 kB.)
  2. Yes, an exception for the file types *.sqlite-shm and *.sqlite-wal helps. (The bug affects all opened database files, not only the favicons.) It is correct that Firefox deletes those cache files on closing, because prior to that Firefox transfers the contents into the database files. Unfortunately, sometimes Firefox 55 closes without doing that.
  3. Firefox 55 added a new database file for the favicons (favicons.sqlite). Therefore, you have to visit every bookmarked website again to get the favicons back. CCleaners option "Firefox: Internet Cache" deletes the cache files (favicons.sqlite-shm, favicons.sqlite-wal) of this new file. After cleaning the cache many favicons are gone again. Edit: This is a bug in Firefox 55. Firefox usually transfers the cache into the database file and then deletes the cache files on closing. But the new Firefox 55 doesn't do that sometimes.
  4. Ok, thanks for the clarification. As far as I know, the problem occurs only if Windows refers to drivers in the windows.old folder. Using CLEANMGR (= "Disk cleanup") should be safe.
  5. I think they can't really fix the issue with the folder "Windows.old". Therefore, I hope they disable that option. I recommend to use Windows "Disk cleanup" to remove the old Windows version. If there are some files left after cleaning, you can boot Windows in Safe Mode and use "Disk cleanup" again.
  6. Isn't necessary because %AllUsersProfile% is equivalent to %CommonAppData%. They are both variables for the path "C:\ProgramData".
  7. (Note: .rmi = [wix Files*]) My suggestion for merging [Windows Installer Temps*], [sourceHash Files*] and [wix Files*]: [Windows Installer Temps*] LangSecRef=3025 Detect=HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer Default=False FileKey1=%WinDir%\Installer\MSI*.tmp-|*.*|REMOVESELF FileKey2=%WinDir%\Installer|*.tmp|RECURSE FileKey3=%WinDir%\Installer|SourceHash{*};wix{*}.SchedServiceConfig.rmi
  8. FileKey2 is equivalent to [wix Files*] FileKey3 is equivalent to [sourceHash Files*] FileKey5 should be enough, and it's safe. FileKey4+6 are not really needed. (And FileKey6 could be possibly dangerous.)
  9. Is FileKey11 correct? FileKey11=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_*\AppData\User\Default\Indexed DB\|*.edb;.*jfm*;.jrs;*.log Shouldn't it be? FileKey11=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_*\AppData\User\Default\Indexed DB\|*.edb;*.jfm;*.jrs;*.log
  10. Do you have those entries? Please copy the following line: REG QUERY HKCU\Software\Piriform\CCleaner >%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\cc.txt Open a "Command Prompt" and paste the line into it. Press "Enter", and on your Desktop appears a new file called "cc.txt". Open the file, copy its whole content and paste it here.
  11. Did you try this? If you are using Exchange the passwords are stored in the Windows Vault. You can check that: Open the "Credential Manager" ("Control Panel" > "User Accounts") and you will find entries starting with "MS.Outlook" or "MicrosoftOffice". CCleaner deletes the Windows Vault if you enable "Network Passwords"!
  12. I guess you have to untick: Cleaner > Windows > Windows Explorer > Network Passwords.
  13. That's good to hear. Missed posts: #6269, #6278, #6285, #6286
  14. If you check the Data Usage before the cleaning, some of the files are locked. And it seems that they are cached in the memory. It works after a reboot. But you have to wait 2-3 minutes before and after using CC. Otherwise some files will be locked or reappearing.
  15. It's in the winapp2.ini file already! > [sRU Monitoring Traces*]
  16. Cutting off the last digits sadly doesn't work.
  17. Thanks for your fast reply and the update on GitHub.
  18. Are you sure those changes are working? I think something went wrong. [Adobe Photoshop Elements*] -FileKey1=%AppData%\Adobe\Elements Organizer\*\Organizer|*.txt;status.dat (one subfolder between) +FileKey1=%AppData%\Adobe\Elements Organizer*\Organizer|*.txt;status.dat (no subfolder) [Adobe Premiere Elements*] -FileKey1=%AppData%\Adobe\Common\Thumbnail Cache|*.*|RECURSE (all files = *.*) +FileKey1=%AppData%\Adobe\Common\Thumbnail Cache|.|RECURSE (missing asterisks) -FileKey3=%Documents%\Adobe\Premiere Elements\*|*.log (one subfolder between and all log-files = *.log) +FileKey3=%Document
  19. Should we add: "ExcludeKey1=FILE|%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations\|f01b4d95cf55d32a.automaticDestinations-ms" ? This protects user made changes to "Quick access". Covered by entry [Cached Certification Files*] already: [Cached Certification Files*] LangSecRef=3025 Detect=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows Default=False FileKey1=%AppData%\Microsoft\CryptnetUrlCache|*.*|RECURSE FileKey2=%LocalLowAppData%\Microsoft\CryptnetUrlCache\Content|*.*|RECURSE FileKey3=%LocalLowAppData%\Microsoft\CryptnetUrlCache\MetaData|*.*|RECURSE
  20. Thanks for the updates! Those entries still have brackets: [Add New Hardware Wizard (MRU)*] [Creative Soundblaster (Cache & Logs)*] [DisplayFusion (Setup File & Log)*] [OcenAudio (MRU)*] Please swap position of these two entries: [Firefox Logs*] [Firefox HTML5 Storage*]
  21. Thanks for the updates! Forgot to move to Chrome section: [Omnibox Shortcut*] [Quota Manager Data*] Forgot to move to Firefox section: [Minidumps*] (it's in the Chrome section)
  22. ??? Please check my reply to your last post. Thanks. https://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=32310&p=282584
  23. Correct link: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/master/Development/Winapp2
  24. Ok, thanks for the research! Then all OneDrive entries [OneDrive App Logs*] + [OneDrive Setup Logs*] + [OneDrive Usage Logs*] could be modified respectively combined to: [OneDrive Logs*] LangSecRef=3021 Detect=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\OneDrive Default=False FileKey1=%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\OneDrive\logs|*.*|RECURSE FileKey2=%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\OneDrive\setup\logs|*.*|RECURSE FileKey3=%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows\OneDrive\logs|*.*|RECURSE
  25. Yes, you're right. The word "App" is an unfortunate choice and should be removed. (IMHO it's always better to modify an existing entry, so that the winapp2.ini doesn't include duplicate keys.) I'm not sure about removing the "SkyDrive" code: Is it confirmed that old installations were also updated to the new name "OneDrive"? But I think "DetectFile" isn't necessary, because SkyDrive/OneDrive always created the HKCU registry key.
