For Windows 7 and Vista users. Windows 8 has different directories for those 2. Might have to make seperate entries or additional filekeys.

I am a maintainer for Winapp2. I also have a open-source group on Steam.

Same on Win Vista, 7 and 8. There is no need to make seperate entries.

@SMalikPlease add a DetectOS line instead of generic Detect

 

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 tested those entries and they made Silverlight forget that I gave it permission to go fullscreen. Unsure if that's going to be an issue or not.

Ihmo that's an issue

Which entry are you talking about?

I guess it's just for a better overall view.

 

@SMalik

+1 For the cached certificates. If that works it would be great. I have like 10.000 files in these folders.

Right. Thank you.

Ah that should do :)

 

This will cover the windir folder location (although it was already empty on my system, again no filekey number provided):

I don’t see FileKey1 & 2 on Win 7 and 8. Can someone check Win XP? If these lines are not there, then we can remove these from this entry.

http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=32310&p=247616

 

By the way, I transferred FileKey1 & 2 into this entry from the [internet Explorer More*] entry.

Could you please get this message here public in the forum:

There's a very easy way to find useless files, that can be added to Winapp2.ini:
Step-0: Please download the newest CCleaner and Winapp2.ini and run with all selected boxes.
Step-1: Please add following entry and just "scan" and NEVER "RUN CCLEANER":
[useless File Extension*]
LangSecRef=3025
Detect=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\
Default=False
FileKey1=%SystemDrive%|*.diz;*.tmp;*.temp;*.chk;*.old;*.gid;*.nch;*.wbk;*.fts;*.ftg;*.$$$;*log.txt;*.err;*.---;*.~*;*.??$;*.___;*.log;*.~mp;*._mp;*.dmp;*.prv;*.sik;*.bak;thumbs.db;CHKLIST.MS;*Desktop.ini;*.ilk;*.aps;*.ncb;*.pch;*.$db;*.?$?;*.??~;*.?~?;*.db$;*.^;*._dd;*._detmp;chklist.*;mscreate.dir;log*.txt;*.log?|RECURSE
Step-2: Use the "Save to text file" function and export the results to somewhere.
Step-3: Upload the the created file to here and the community will try to add it into Winapp2.ini .
 
Thank you, Rivaldo Santos ""Test" "

IMO a bit harsh with regard to .bak and Desktop.ini files.

The entry found 88.6 MB on my XP system.

On Windows 8.1 x64, the entry finds a lot of files that are .bak, .log, .logx, and others that I believe would be pretty risky to remove.  I do not recommend such a "global" code for Winapp2.ini.

Added FileKey2:

[Firefox Logs*]
LangSecRef=3026
SpecialDetect=DET_MOZILLA
Default=False
FileKey1=%ProgramFiles%\Mozilla Firefox|*.log
FileKey2=%AppData%\Mozilla|*.log|RECURSE
Finds marionette.log and submit.log which seem to be log files from Firefox.

I've been checking to make sure this doesn't break anything, so far it all seems good. Files in this directory seem to be akin to checksums and torrents, and are recreated when you validate game files or the game downloads an update. Feel free to check this against your libraries

 

 

[Steam DepotCache*]
Section=Games
Detect=HKCU\Software\Valve\Steam
Default=False
FileKey1=%ProgramFiles%\Steam\depotcache|*.*
