Flash Player Cleaning

Recommended Posts

I have noticed that CCleaner cleans the settings.sol from the following location by default:

%userprofile%\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash Player\macromedia.com\support\flashplayer\sys\settings.sol


I typically disable the update setting at the following location:



When you uncheck the update, it modifies the settings.sol file. Because CCleaner removes this file, the update setting is removed.


I like the FlashPlayer cleaning, but I don't think it should clean the settings.sol file by default. I know that I could make an exception for that file, but it's a pain to do it on every single computer I load CCleaner on.


If this could be addressed, I would greatly appreciate it.

So it does, I've never noticed that. Hopefully it can be sorted.

Yes, it sure does delete that (settings storage) file. I have disabled Flash cleaning from CCleaner. I have prevented Flash sites from storing information to my system, so basicly there's nothing to delete.

Sorry for bumping this old thread, but ...


Is Flash Player cleaning gone altogether (i.e. removed from CCleaner)

now ? I can't seem to find the option (the checkbox) for it.


I'm using CCleaner 2.07 & The Flash Plugin for Firefox.


If it was indeed removed, is there any chance to get it back,

and implement it properly this time (i.e. don't delete flash's own settings) ?
