Winapp2.ini additions


Winapp2.ini

Recommended Posts

Looking into this - I have been traveling for family matters for several weeks without access to my devices, apologies for the radio silence on this. The duplicate entry will also be fixed shortly. Thank you for your patience.

 

The application FileActivityWatch can be helpful in narrowing down things like this. I also suspect /AC/ directory cleaning may be too aggressive - I only use a local account and did not encounter and issues during testing before pushing those changes.

On both my Windows 10x64 Pro and Windows 11x64 Pro systems, I run only a local user account.  My personal logon/account picture on these systems is stored in the Pictures folder of my user account.  In CCleaner, if I have Applications>Windows>[Windows Subsystems *] active/checkmarked, it causes the picture to display as the "no picture at all" icon.  It does not corrupt or remove my account/logon picture from the Pictures folder.  I do get an error message if I try to restore the picture via Settings>Acounts>Your Info.  This error goes away on system reboot.  I have no idea what code Windows Subsystems  is causing this problem.

of the issues, this is the one I can reproduce most consistently. Probably the .tbacctpic* files in \AC\TokenBroker\Accounts

Yep, FileKey6 does appear to cause the problem with the pic.  I took it out and tested it on my Win10 and Win11 systems.  Thanks very much for the solution.🙃  It's been bugging me for weeks.

Is Winapp2ool.ini version 1.5.8000.34368 considered a beta release or a public release?  Reason for my question is that my older brother's Winapp2ool.ini does not offer to update to 1.5.8000.34368 (he is not set to accept beta updates).

1.5.8000.34368 is indeed intended to be public, I neglected to build the application for release. I will fix this soon

There are a couple of issues in [Firefox Caches*] in winapp2.ini in version 290901.

1. "xulstore.json" has been included for deletion in the %AppData% profiles.  Deleting xulstore.json causes the menu bar setting to be lost in Firefox, FirefoxESR, Librewolf, Palemoon, etc. and the status bar view settings in Palemoon.  This file doesn't contain personal data or urls or other privacy related issues that I can tell.  It is just for maintaining the toolbar presence and window locations.  I think that xulstore.json should be removed from those lists (FileKey2, 8, 14, 20, 26, 32, 38)

2. Basilisk is included in the %LocalAppData% FileKeys (FileKey43, 44, 45).  Basilisk is not included in the %AppData% FileKeys with the other browsers.  Basilisk should be added back in here starting at FileKey7 and can have the same treatment the same as Palemoon. This browser is back in active development now for some time.

Thank you.

noted re: xulstore.json, I have had to delete this file in the past to fix broken view settings and thought that perhaps it generally is automatically generated based on my testing but as always, many are the browser configurations :rolleyes:. it's not my intention that the mainline winapp2.ini file include "corrective" deletion routines for stuff like this!

xulstore.json is automatically regenerated if deleted, however, since the previous contents are lost that had view and position setting, the newly generated file has the firefox defaults like after a fresh install.  The customization of the View->Toolbar settings are lost along with some window dimensions. It makes sense to delete it if it is corrupt, and then re-set things up.  But this isn't something that you would want to clear when cleaning up cached items.

winapp2.ini cannot stop programs or services so cannot clean things that require it automatically

This is already cleaned up by CCleaner's built-in cleanup rule [Thumbnail Cache]. Sometimes the files are locked, but basically they can be cleaned with it.

Should this be added into Microsoft Edge Chromium cleaning?

Don't know if it's safe to clean or not, but I've been nuking it on my system with no ill effects. Would need someone else to test and verify if it should or shouldn't be cleaned before it's just blindly added into the community winapp2.ini.

I agree that "Module Info Cache" should be deleted.  I don't find any harm in deleting it.  Since it may affect some aspect of the browsers that I don't use, hopefully others can test this too.
Other Chromium based browsers have this file too.
For for Vivaldi, the path is:

%LocalAppData%\Vivaldi\User Data|Module Info Cache

For Opera, the path is:

%AppData%\Opera Software\Opera Stable|Module Info Cache

OperaGX is similar. I don't have Google Chrome to test with.  The file contains paths and filenames to many of the installed programs and Windows files.  If you use a sophisticated text editor like Notepad++, and turn off the control and non-printing characters and set the text encoding, you can easily view the plain text portion of the file.

Vivaldi recreates "Module Info Cache" when a non-private window is closed.
Opera recreates the file when a URL is loaded, even in a private window.
The newly recreated files were significantly smaller.

Because this file may contain references to programs that have been uninstalled or files that may have been deleted, it represents a small privacy risk.

That's why I started having CCleaner delete it, seemed odd it would have references to other programs, etc. It was somewhat alarming seeing all the stuff it had inside it, and is perplexing why a browser would even need to keep a cache like that. Seems sort of like some data-mining for profiling the user, they all want our data at no cost.
