Hello,

 

Feb 2010

 

Vista Ultimate (likely all Vista versions) is using the following location for temporary folders / files:

 

C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Local

 

as well as

 

C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Local\Temp

 

 

Please add these to your cleanup list in CCleaner!

 

Thanks.

It would be good to add such a feature but CCleaner can include individual folders for cleaning. Go to Options>Include>Add.

I love computer maintenance tasks.

Some of my favorite programs:

Wordpad -basic word processing

Notepad - temporary clipboard and basic scripting module

Windows Media Player 12- video, music and online radio player

Windows Media Center - live TV, local FM radio

CCleaner- handy computer maintenance tool

 

If something fails to work after using the registry cleaner, use SYSTEM RESTORE.

C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Local

 

 

is not solely a Temp folder

 

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.

C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Local

This is NOT a temp folder, but a folder for application data.

C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Local\Temp

= %Temp% (to be compatible with all versions of Windows).

Yup and As far as I can tell CCleaner does now and has always cleaned it (thus it being a temp file cleaner program)

 

and it does :)

This is a problem, when deleting files in TEMP folder.

 

CCleaner v2.30.1130 are deleting files (xxxxxxLog.ini) in folder "Users\xxxxxxxx\AppData\Temp\".

It cause "error message" when you make next boot in the computer.

 

I don't know why it is happend, and can't undertand how those files (.ini) where set in that folder.

Those files (.ini) where created when I made updates in motherboard drivers.

 

To correct I made "restauration" in the system and turn those files (.ini) as hide.

It would be better to make those files part of tools>exclude instead of "hiding" them. . . do you know what program is creating these files??? Also it is better to start a new thread and not to piggy back (post into someone elses thread a un/semi-related question)
