Application Removal Section


Recommended Posts

I use Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0 on my system, I know there are newer versions, they also use much more disk space, so I went back to v5.0.

I noticed in CCleaner v1.24, and now in version 1.25, Adobe 5.0 does not show up in the Applications list, (possibly earlier versions as well, as I recently switched from the very slow loading Adobe 6.0 back to Adobe 5.0)


I searched "CCleaner - winapp file and winnapp2", Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0 is listed, so obviously it should show in Applications.

In the "winapp file" the following is how Adobe 5.0 is listed:


[Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0]


Detect=HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\5.0\AVGeneral\cRecent Files


RegKey1=HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\5.0\AVGeneral\cRecentFiles


By changing this listing to:


[Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0]


Detect=HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\5.0\AVGeneral\


RegKey1=HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\5.0\AVGeneral\cRecentFiles


I edited the line:

Detect=HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\5.0\AVGeneral

by deleting the term "cRecent Files"


This small change solved the problem, Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0 now appears in the Applications list. I noticed how Adobe 6.0/7.0 are listed in winapp and thought I would follow suit with 5.0.

A minor problem but for those who still find 5.0 suitable for their needs, I thought I would point this out.


CCleaner is an excellent program, I wouldn't be without it. Thanks
