I think that the uninstaller of CCleaner must have an option to select if you wanna erase winapp2.ini and ccleaner.ini as many programs like Firefox do... cause if you unselect this option and reinstall CCleaner all your preferences will be there untouched...

I don't think so warmth. If your uninstalling CC then you don't want to use it anymore. Like any good uninstaller should do is clean the registry of your settings. If you using the ini option then save your ccleaner.ini to a safe place. If you decided to install CC again then put ccleaner.ini back in the ccleaner folder and nothing will be lost.

 

When you install CC it doesn't add winapp2.ini to the CC folder you have to added that yourself. ;)

I can't be agree with you... there several different reasons to uninstall a software than just the reason you gave... for example my case... and it's very annoying have to backup manually a file to avoid the uninstaller cleans it... if Firefox perhaps use this feature why CCleaner can't have it??? will be opt to the user to uncheck or not the option to erase the ccleaner.ini file and winapp2.ini file (if it's present) or not...

 

is very inconsistent that uninstaller deletes ccleaner.ini file to clean all CCleaner traces and don't do a check to see if other file are present... winapp2.ini file... that is a very common file nowadays... :P

Obviosly <_<

I may be saying something here you already know warmth, so apologies if you do, but the reason it doesn't have that option is probably because CCleaner is designed to enable a new version to install over the top of the old one, retaining all settings (ini files).

 

There isn't a need to save your settings and them reintroduce them. CCleaner is a very small install, so there's probably little benefit to be gained by removing the old one first.

 

There are applications that I prefer to remove the old one first, as they deposit folders and files in more than one place, but CCleaner isn't one of them.

 

As Keith stated, the only reason you would need to uninstall CCleaner, is if you aren't gonna use it anymore. Mind you, making a backup of your settings isn't a bad idea.

I understand you guys... but I can be agree that a Cleaning software leaves traces of old files in its own folder... doesn't make sense to me... samething for deleting files that you don't want to...

 

the essence of CCleaner is a software to manage files... and I can't understand that such a great program can't have features to avoid manually copying of preferences files... I know that my suggestions seems like to much work for a things that nobody is gonna use... but trust me... they are going to be use more than you think... are useful stuff present in so many other softwares and I think that with this kind of details... CCleaner will become a more robust software...

Warmth, I'm sorry I missed your other thread here.

 

After looking in my CCleaner folder, I noticed the old uninstaller, "uninst.exe", hadn't been removed, simply renamed "uninst2.exe".

 

So I take your point.
