CCleaner v2.35.1219 won't detect Adobe Flash Player


Recommended Posts

I installed the latest version (v2.35.1223) and I am puzzled. When I compare the embedded *.INI file info of v2.35.1219 with v2.35.1223 I don't see any changes but in spite of that the latest version does detect Adobe Flash Player. And in spite of that *.xpt file not being present in that particular folder.

A discussion always stimulates the braincells !!!

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)

What's the difference between the embedded .ini file and the winapp.ini file in the CCleaner folder?

 

CCleaners INI's have been embedded into the exe for a while. Either you have a really old ini, or you've been downloading the embedded ones and putting them in the ccleaner folder. Deleting it does nothing, since its already inside the exe.

I always update CCleaner by installing the new version over the old one.

So the winapp.ini file in the CCleaner folder must be a leftover and useless.

 

Just got back 39.0 KB of my HD. :)

 

Thanks

I think that the difference (maybe and this is only a guess) that detects have now become OR as opposed to AND

by which I mean

oldversion

Detect=hkcr...

and

detectfile=%wirdir%...

 

newversion

Detect=hkcr...

or

detectfile=%windir%...
