Winapp2.ini additions


Recommended Posts

Here are some additions. Note that I put the * in front of the name so that I can delineate those that are not currently in Winapp2.ini

I think its time for a update.

What do you mean? he just updated yesterday, please keep in mind that Winapp2.ini (the person) is a volunteer, has a life outside of making this file and is under no obligation to maintain the file, he does this at his own volition and his own speed. If you feel a update is needed, add the entry you want to your personal winapp2 file.

 

Please think a little less selfishly next time. Sorry if this seems mean, but your curt request came off a bit :unsure:

Exactly. All you have to do is add the new stuff that applies to you, to the latest update. Thats what i did. You don't need an update everyday.

You are most welcome. I like a clean machine and Winapp2.ini is a major assist for this objective. B)

Read the thread

 

it was three posts above yours

 

Updated -3- first post!

Everyone, Just a thought, of course, and I'm super glad to see all these new people submitting entries :) ; however, so as not to overbloat the winapp2, and this thread, be sure that the software you suggest is something you feel at least a medium population might be running.

Good suggestion, but Winapp2.ini could weed out the less desirable ones when he updates the Winapp2.ini., and maybe trim it once in a while. Also who uses the full Winapp2.ini anyway? I just use it as a resource for making my personal Winapp2.ini. Picking and choosing ones that apply to me.

JMO... :rolleyes:

 

I wish that the CCleaner developers would create a new section under Applications: [4036 = Security]

 

The following programs would fit this new category.

 

Windows Defender

Malwarebytes Anti Malware

AntiVir Desktop

TrojanHunter

Hijackthis

Wallwatcher

A-squared Free

Antivir Personal 8

Avira Rootkit Detection

BitDefender 9

CounterSpy

Giant AntiSpyware

HostsMan

Microsoft AntiMalware Scan Results

Online Armor

SpyDefense

Spyware Doctor

Spyware Terminator

ZoneAlarm

(and others embedded in CCleaner that may be showing up on others' systems)

Technically that could be done using

 

Section=Security

 

 

the only difference would be that there'd be no graphic.

 

It also would not move CCleaner embedded programs such as Windows Defender and Malwarebytes to the "new" section, correct?

Hi all,

 

I'm relatively new here but have used CCleaner for years happily. A lot of the content of this thread has gone over my head but I think it is the right thread in which to ask my question, as it looks like you guys are the 'creme de la creme' of the gurus here. I came across a mention of a free product called CCenhancer which I understand 'turbocharges' CCleaner. My questions are: is it safe, do you guys use it, does it work? I know it is not officially endorsed by Piriform but it looks to give CCleaner support for another 170 or so programs in terms of cleanup.

 

BTW, is this 'winapp2.ini' file mentioned in this thread updated each time I update CCleaner? I think so but just want to check. From my reading here I should update it even more frequently than a regular CCleaner update. Is CCenhancer meant to replace this 'winapp2.ini' file or complement it? As you can see I'm a bit confused.

 

Sorry if this isn't relevant here or off topic. Thanks for your patience. Cheers, bdh

 

P.S: I did do a search for CCenhancer on this forum but nothing came up. Hope I did the search properly!

CCenhancer has the same entries as the files here in the thread^^

 

(It has also the same MD5 code^^)

 

At some point we were collaborating, but due to my final exams at present, I don't have the time to help (let alone post this response really :P) I figure for the sake of being up to date there is no harm using winapp2.ini's file so long as I give back in the future :)

I'm Shane.

P.S: I did do a search for CCEnhancer on this forum but nothing came up. Hope I did the search properly!

 

 

CCEnhancer is a small program that downloads and installs the latest Winapp2.ini file to your CCleaner program folder. The winapp2.ini file is a file that adds support for more programs in terms of cleanup. In other words you'll be able to clean more crap off you pc. I dont think CCEnhancer installs itself to your pc, you have to run the exe file every-time you want to update the Winapp2.ini file. Thats why i just update the Winapp2.ini file manually, and put the Winapp2.ini file in my ccleaner program file folder myself.

 

As for winapp2.ini' file being updated each time CCleaner is updated, the answer is no. CCEnhancer is not officially part of CCleaner, its not endorsed by piriform. So no it wont. When i un-install an old ccleaner and install a new one, i move the Winapp2.ini file to my desktop beforehand. Then after i un-install the old cccleaner and in-stall the new version, i move the Winapp2.ini file back from the desktop to the ccleaner program folder.

 

Is it safe, do i use it? Yes i use it, and its fairly safe, but there's no 100% guarantees its totally safe.

Thanks for the prompt reply Atom & Back_Track,

 

I'm still a bit unsure of what I need to actually do to apply this Winapp2 file to my setup. From what I've read I must place the .ini file in the CCleaner folder. However I can't seem to find anything clearly identified as the latest version to download. The latest I found was June - surely this can't be the current version? I've found different links/things emanating from this Piriform site but some of them have different amounts of text in them (simple updates?). I even found a zip file here but that didn't have any program info in it. For a non-techy this is just too hard. Is it meant to be so geekish people like me are precluded from having the best? Can anyone please actually point me to a simple download with the latest full ini file, a place I can go to to check often for the latest version? Or is this only the exclusive realm of the mysterious CCenhancer? Somebody please put me out of my misery! Cheers, bdh.
