winapp2ool v1.2.7175.37819

weird thing happen when using trim for this location HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader

Detect=HKLM\Software\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader   = trimmed(wrong)

Detect=HKLM\Software\Foxit Software   = not trim(correct)

tested this location HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\SHAREit Technologies\SHAREit and winapp2ool trim correctly

just for testing purpose, tested this location \SHAREit Technologies\SHAREit Tech and winapp2ool trim correctly

LangSecRef=3021
Default=False

Thanks for pointing this out, I'll look into it when I get some time

Modified entry:  [Syncios Cell Phone Backup & Manage *]

Added FileKey1.   And yes the misspelling of sycnios (misspelled syncios by program developer) is correct.

I've a new tab page extension and whenever I clean chrome temporary files in CCleaner, the new tab page extension settings resets to defaults and I need to import them once a week as CCleaner is set to auto scan every week. How can I find this file to add it to exclusions so I will not be forced to import settings anymore?

Please make sure that you are using the latest version of Winapp2.ini.

The responsible CCleaner entry must then be found: Right-click on the first Google Chrome entry and select "Clean <entry name>". Then check to see if the issue occurs. If not, continue with the next Google Chrome entry until the responsible CCleaner entry is found.

There is a problem with only this extension. I've latest winapp2.ini of course.

I've localized these files/file (by modified time right after temporary folder cleanup and importing extension settings) and the extension is saving settings (thumbnails) in Default/Cache folder of Chrome. Files in this folder are re-created with every Chrome temporary files cleaning, and names of these files are different every time after they've been cleaned. I think it's then impossible

Some months ago, an issue with another extension was reported. The responsible entry was [Google Chrome - Session].

You can try excluding the following folder and see if it helps:

Revised Entry

Removed *.lst from FileKey2 and FileKey3 completely because they are in the built-in entry.

Thank you for your engagement. Adding this folder to exclusions hasn't resolved the problem. The extension name I've a problem with is Home - New Tab Page.

You can see on attached screenshot what's happening after cleaning temporary files... all images/thumbnails are flushed. 14 of them thumbnails are stored locally on my hard drive and 7 are from an URL somewhere in internet. Settings looks to be OK. It's just these thumbnails I've a problem with...

I've just discovered an interesting thing with this extension. It looks like it's doing an automatic backup. I can't tell you for now how often it's doing it and what is included in it, but it automatically backup settings and thumbnails and I just need 2 clicks to restore to state from last backup. It's not that much to be done which I couldn't do once a week, but I'd prefer to do it automatically, as it should do it. I'm getting a message when restoring it.

Ok, I think I found the responsible CCleaner entry: [Google Chrome - Internet Cache]. So it is not caused by the Winapp2.ini.

To protect the icons of your extension, you should exclude these two folders:

Note: The "000" folder may have a different number. But right after cleaning up all temporary files and importing the extension settings, it should be "000".

You're a king man! It was these 2 folders

I do not think so, because this is a special case only for this one extension. (The extension possibly does not comply with the specifications for Chrome extensions?)

CCleaner's built-in entry has been removing these folders (HTML5 Storage) for a very long time now, without any issue reports.

From what I've experienced with Chrome/Chromium based browsers since 2014 the main don't touch directories will have "Local Extension Settings" in the path, which is why I exclude mine in CCleaner, etc., for SRWare Iron Portable.

Modified entry:  [Samsung Magician *]

Added FileKey6 to remove a 1 gbyte folder that Magician 6.0.0 creates during installation.  Not needed.

Note: This huge folder is created and then left hanging if the user performs a "Benchmark All" via Magician and then cancel during the scan.

Changed LangSecRef from 3021 to 3024 because Magician is a utility type program.

My Samsung SSD isn't my boot drive it's a secondary as drive E:\. I found a 1GB hidden file that Samsung Magician 6.0.0 created on it after I benchmarked (did not cancel the benchmark) using it, and looking at the drive S.M.A.R.T. data, etc.:

E:\mict.dat


This new version is sloppy, first I couldn't download it due to the frivolous complete b.s. daily download limit (come on I've spent hundreds of dollars on Samsung SSDs), and now the huge junk files it creates including a hidden one.

@dvdbane Do the keys that are not in wow64node exist on your system too?

JFYI: I didn't install Foxit Reader, so I simply added the two registry keys "Foxit Software\Foxit Reader" under "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\".

Now you can run TRIM and the results will be as follows:

If the entry uses "Detect=HKLM\Software\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader", Trim does not detect it (and trims it out).
If the entry uses "Detect=HKLM\Software\Foxit Software", Trim detects it.
