  1. I'm not sure. If this is not cleaned up by CCleaner, then someone would probably have made an entry for it a long time ago. If you search the forum for "OfflineCache", CCleaner seems to clean it up. The entry "Cookies" should do this. CCleaner cleans up the database directly (and therefore does not delete the ".sqlite" file itself). https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/32310-winapp2ini-additions/page/263/?tab=comments#comment-288245 Quote: "... [Pale Moon - Offline Cache*] ... ok, found with Firefox -> Cookies (!!!) ..." Edit: I can now confirm that the "OfflineCache"
  2. I think 3) should be: 3) Navigate to: C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Local\ However, the question remains why this only occurs with a few Office users. I also have these files in the Temp folder, but I can delete them without any problems. My Office 2016 has never been affected by CCleaner. By the way, there is unfortunately still no official answer here either:
  3. Thanks for testing and your reply. Here the revised entry: [Process Hacker *] LangSecRef=3024 DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\Process Hacker Default=False FileKey1=%AppData%\Process Hacker\Cache|*.*|RECURSE FileKey2=%ProgramFiles%\Process Hacker|processhacker-setup.exe LibreOffice now seems to omit the version number in the folder name, so I modified the entry: [LibreOffice *] LangSecRef=3021 Detect=HKLM\Software\LibreOffice Default=False FileKey1=%AppData%\LibreOffice\*\cache|*.log FileKey2=%AppData%\LibreOffice\*\User\backup|*.* FileKey3=%AppData%\LibreOffice\*\User\extensio
  4. As far as I know, these entries reduce the size of all database files. So it certainly means "to compact databases" respectively "to compress databases" and the translation should be correct.
  5. The full path is then the following, correct? %AppData%\Process Hacker\Cache\NYGWEFSCZHOPGSU\processhacker-build-setup.exe However, I guess the folder name is randomly generated. Since it is located in a folder called "Cache", the question arises whether you can simply delete the entire contents of the folder. Can you please try if deleting the entire contents of the folder "Cache" will cause problems? Thanks a lot!
  6. I also only use offline accounts and still have both folders on all systems. I found out that the service "Connected Devices Platform User Service_xxxxx" is responsible for the folder "random string" and the service "Connected Devices Platform Service" for the folder "L.username". The service "Connected Devices Platform User Service_xxxxx" can only be disabled permanently via the registry. However, since the service is no longer used only for sync tasks, it is better not to disable it - as you have already written. After deleting the cache databases, I have not noticed any side effects, at lea
  7. You simply have to wait longer, because CCleaner now has to process thousands of new entries. When all entries have been processed, CCleaner is ready for operation again. To speed up the start again, you can use the Trim function of Winapp2ool. Please read post #1: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/32310-winapp2ini-additions/?tab=comments#comment-175835
  8. Thanks for the new/revised entries, suggestions and replies. Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/3a19c2fc3dc9cf26bfd93f0bb20f5dd19209df05 Winapp3.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/f212def9545fe82aa2f3cccd31a9665415e75c31
  9. Just for your information: The "empty.check" is not a new function, but only a fantasy file pattern. You can use any file pattern you like, which is normally never used by programs (examples: "abc.xyz" or "no.content"). By the way, the culprit really seems to be the "Microsoft Provisioning".
  10. @dvdbane Most entries for "Metro Apps" clean up the "AC\Temp" folder, so this should be safe. I think we can add this to Winapp2.ini. @CSGalloway https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/issues/391 @Andavari The FileKey of your entry should work, but I would still recommend the "official" syntax: FileKey1=%WinDir%\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\tw-*.tmp|*.*|REMOVESELF To make sure that only empty folders are deleted, a "fake" file pattern can be used: FileKey1=%WinDir%\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\tw-*.tmp|empty.check|REMOV
  11. Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/57ffa85d23ab869dd1e01e5d42a5b13aac95aeb2 Winapp3.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/f0c1ffa59c9380e1e4afb42da8b9a81e90422930
  12. I guess the entries "DeleteMe=" are caused by the CCiniDebug feature of Winapp2ool. @Winapp2.ini should be able to help here.
  13. @ricktendo64: Many thanks for your reply. Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/a395bc93477a182494e6d64dffd513ecae8a719e
  14. And this is exactly the reason why CCleaner freezes when the HealthCheck is activated. As I explained in my previous posts.
  15. I think we've got two freezing issues mixed in here. With some users CCleaner freezes already during the installation. For other users the CCleaner GUI freezes right after startup. A screenshot won't help much here, because CCleaner is loaded completely, but is not usable. With every click nothing happens, except that a sound is played. A solution for this problem can be read here: https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/56994-update-freezes/?tab=comments#comment-315830 https://community.ccleaner.com/topic/56994-update-freezes/?tab=comments#comment-315886 The problem can be easil
  16. On all systems I use Windows Defender with PUA protection enabled. Excluding CCleaner with the whitelist will not cure the frozen GUI. Windows Defender will also usually notify you whenever it blocks a PUA. I could find another solution: If the regsitry value "(Cfg)HealthCheckIpm" (HKLM) is deleted or set to 0, CCleaner starts with the introduction of the HealthCheck and sets the necessary setting "DisplayIM" (HKCU) itself. Therefore the installer probably sets the wrong start value for "(Cfg)HealthCheckIpm".
  17. On one PC, I also had the problem that the GUI was frozen immediately after starting. (The installation went through without any problems). This problem is definitely related to the HealthCheck. If I deactivate the HealthCheck via Registry, the GUI works. Afterwards I compared the settings with another PC and found the cause. The other PC has the following additional CCleaner setting: "DisplayIM=1-1|2-1|". If I add this setting the GUI works again even if HealthCheck is activated. Can Piriform please clarify this? Thank you.
  18. Suggestion: Ricktendo64 has reported that Windows Apps now have a (shader-)cache folder from AMD. In my opinion it is not really necessary to clean up these folders per Windows App, because: - The folders are not app-based, but driver-based and are only redirected into the app container. - For classic Win32 applications, the (shader-)cache can also not be cleaned separately per application, but only for all applications together. - It would also simplify the maintenance of the Windows App entries and save many duplicate lines. Therefore, my suggestion would be to add th
  19. Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/cd026108ddd2368982840f63d938a58893dec21f Edit: Winapp2.ini update: https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2/commit/359ed9c264bac02ef4445cb87bb003a5e2ba4f8d (Revised and removed entries for Edge Chromium, as it is now officially supported by CCleaner.)
  20. You can add the browser to CCleaner using one of the following methods: 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://community.ccleaner.com/search/?&q="CustomLocation1%3DCHROME" Example: CustomLocation1=CHROME|C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Local\Yandex\YandexBrowser\User Data\Default

  22. Unfortunately, many suggestions and fixes do not seem to have a high priority at Piriform...
  23. Great! I'm glad I could help. In the Winapp2.ini you will not find "Detect=" with "WOW6432Node" because CCleaner adds it under 64-bit internally by itself.
  24. Did you also check "Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node" for an "ESET" key? Programs that are coded in 32-bit add their registry keys there under a 64-bit operating system.
