BTW is there a DetectOS=11 for Windows 11?

my guess is no until October ccleaner's release (or maybe even November's).  This is a guess with no actual basis

 

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.

CCLEANER, RECUVA, DEFRAGGLER AND SPECCY DOCUMENTATION CAN BE FOUND AT  https://support.piriform.com/hc/en-us and  https://www.ccleaner.com/docs

Perhaps this can also be added to the existing [Icon Cache *] entry?

[Icon Cache *] requires Explorer to be restarted.  The [Explorer IconCachetoDelete *] does not.

New Entry

[Stored Notification Settings *]
LangSecRef=3025
Detect=HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
RegKey1=HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Notifications\Settings

[Stored Notification Settings *] cleaner from this post causes issues and likely needs a warning comment inside it, otherwise people will likely have a very difficult time determining why all of a sudden 3rd party privacy tools such as O&O ShutUp10 for example that recommend disabling Lock Screen notifications in Windows 10 are all of a sudden indicating settings changes after that cleaner is used.

Edit:
So in other words it conflicts with what a user may intend to do with another tool by deleting the setting.

Another one that inadvertently causes an issue is [Explorer IconCachetoDelete *] which eventually causes custom folder view style settings such as using Tiles, etc., to be deleted, so when opening a folder it goes back to the default view style.
