USB History?

 

you mean old device cache?

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

I think what they are looking for can be done via winapp2.ini but requires knowing what RegKeys to use. It's off topic but I would recommend the following:

 

Description: DriveCleanup removes all currently non present "Storage Volumes", "Disk", "CDROM", "Floppy" USB drives and their USB devices from the device tree. Furthermore it removes orphaned registry items related to these device types.

Started with parameter -T (like test) it shows which devices it would remove. Started without a parameter, it does its job without further inquiry.

 

Writes settings to: Application folder

How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch DriveCleanup.exe.

System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / 7
