Twisted Metal,

 

Would like to know if the old .ini file can be used to make CCleaner not change settings in word 2003. If not is there a new.ini file I can use so that CCleaner does not erase my wifes custom settings. Any help finding the link to this file would be helpful. I can't seem to find the old link and I do not know if this is ther right one for the new version anyway. Also, If I remember correctly, all I need to do is download the zip file, unzip it, and drop it in the CCleaner folder. It then asks me if I want to replace the existing file, I click yes and I am done. Is that correct?

 

Lastly, what other cleaning am I going to lose other than the custom settings in word?

Just custom settings and recent file list. Open winapp.ini...

 

If you have Office XP.

 

Delete:

 

RegKey8=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Word\Data|Settings

RegKey9=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Access\Settings

 

If you have Office 2003

 

Delete:

 

RegKey10=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Data|Settings

OK thanks. Just to make sure these keys are in the winapp.ini file not in regedit correct. I will check this when I get home, Thanks again.

TwistedMetal,

 

That worked great. Did not change my settings. I saved the key in a word doc just in case it caused problems, but so far, worked fine. Other then these settings, what exactly does not get cleared in office now that this key is deleted. I noticed that there are still 9 other keys left, so what functionality have I lost.
