Winapp2.ini additions


Recommended Posts

I just complete redesigned the website, and in the process removed the HTML changelog for the most recent version. Until the next version is released, I'm not going to replace it, so use the plaintext one for the time being. Sorry!

I’d like to report a mistake in the [MS Visual Studio Search History *] section of the winapp2.ini : this is not “RegKey1=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\7.1\Find\Find 0″ but “RegKey1=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\7.1\Find|Find 0″ with a pipe for the chains and not the keys… This is the same for all the other chains.

You've missed few entries (or I haven't posted them :D):

[Creative Installation Information*]
LangSecRef=3021
DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\Creative Installation Information
Default=False
FileKey1=%ProgramFiles%\Creative Installation Information|*.log|RECURSE

[installShield Installation Information*]
LangSecRef=3024
DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\InstallShield Installation Information
Default=False
FileKey1=%ProgramFiles%\InstallShield Installation Information|*.log|RECURSE

[Mozilla Firefox Logs*]
LangSecRef=3026
DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\Mozilla Firefox
Default=False
FileKey1=%ProgramFiles%\Mozilla Firefox|*.log

[Tweaking.com Windows Repair*]
LangSecRef=3024
DetectFile=%SystemDrive%\Tweaking.com_Windows_Repair_Logs
Default=False
FileKey1=%SystemDrive%\Tweaking.com_Windows_Repair_Logs|*.*|REMOVESELF

 

 

Btw, this is in the current file:

[Microsoft Security Essentials*]
LangSecRef=3021
Detect=HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware
Default=False
FileKey1=%CommonAppData%\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\LocalCopy|*.*|RECURSE

I found this

[MS Security Client*]
LangSecRef=3025
DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Security Client\msseces.exe
Default=False
FileKey1=%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Security Client\Backup|*.*|RECURSE
FileKey2=%CommonAppData%\Microsoft\Microsoft Security Client\Support|*.log
FileKey3=%CommonAppData%\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\Support|*.log
FileKey4=%CommonAppData%\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\Definition Updates\Backup|*.*|RECURSE
FileKey5=%CommonAppData%\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\Scans\History|*.*|RECURSE

from some version of Winapp2.ini, is there a reason it's not in the current version..?

 

 

Do you have older release notes ("What's new") somewhere?

For [Adobe Flash Player More*] with Chrome we don't have the key to detect, but these paths must be cleaned :

 

%AppData%\Adobe\Flash Player|*.*|RECURSE and %AppData%\Macromedia\Flash Player|*.*|RECURSE

 

I'd like to suggest a path to add to your file for the Windows Update Cache :

 

%SystemRoot%\SoftwareDistribution\Download|*.*|RECURSE

The SoftwareDistribution folder will never be cleaned by Winapp2.ini

 

It has been broadly discussed on this thread and deemed to be too much of a harm-causer for a novice user to use. While the entry itself has little capacity to hurt a machine, the user, confused by the after effects of removing that folder, can get frustrated and blame us :(

 

I'll modify the Flash Player entry accordingly though :) Thanks!

If you add this line to the entry [Adobe Flash Player More*]:

%AppData%\Macromedia\Flash Player|*.*|RECURSE

 

You have to add this line also:

ExcludeKey1=FILE|%AppData%\Macromedia\Flash Player\macromedia.com\support\flashplayer\sys|settings.sol

 

Otherwise all your settings are gone!

 

Example for modified entry:

[Adobe Flash Player More*]
LangSecRef=3023
Detect1=HKCU\Software\Macromedia\FlashPlayer
Detect2=HKCU\Software\Chromium
Default=False
FileKey1=%AppData%\Adobe\Flash Player|*.*|RECURSE
FileKey2=%AppData%\Macromedia\Flash Player|*.*|RECURSE
FileKey3=%WinDir%\System32\Macromed\Flash|FlashInstall.log
FileKey4=%WinDir%\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash|FlashInstall.log
ExcludeKey1=FILE|%AppData%\Macromedia\Flash Player\macromedia.com\support\flashplayer\sys|settings.sol

that and the handful of others are used to detect chrome, you need them all

 

the point of flash player more is to remove settings.sol else just use in ccleaner's built adobe flash check, or exclude the file in your own (I actually remove the entry completely )

Sorry, but you are wrong. The current entry clears the AssetCache and the FlashInstall.log only.

 

[Adobe Flash Player More*]
LangSecRef=3023
Detect=HKCU\Software\Macromedia\FlashPlayer
Default=False
FileKey1=%AppData%\Adobe\Flash Player\AssetCache|*.*|RECURSE
FileKey2=%WinDir%\System32\Macromed\Flash|FlashInstall.log
FileKey3=%WinDir%\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash|FlashInstall.log

 

And I don't think that anybody really wants to delete the settings of a program.

You are right, thanks! Here are all detect lines:

 

Detect2=HKCU\Software\Chromium
DetectFile1=%localappdata%\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe
DetectFile2=%ProgramFiles%\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe
DetectFile3=%localappdata%\Flock\Application\flock.exe
DetectFile4=%ProgramFiles%\Flock\Application\flock.exe
DetectFile5=%localappdata%\Google\Chrome SxS\Application\chrome.exe
DetectFile6=%ProgramFiles%\Google\Chrome SxS\Application\chrome.exe
DetectFile7=%localappdata%\SRWare Iron\iron.exe
DetectFile8=%ProgramFiles%\SRWare Iron\iron.exe
DetectFile9=%ProgramFiles%\Chromium\chrome.exe
DetectFile10=%localappdata%\Chromium\chrome.exe
DetectFile11=%ProgramFiles%\Chromium\Application\chrome.exe
DetectFile12=%localappdata%\Chromium\Application\chrome.exe
DetectFile13=%AppData%\ChromePlus\chrome.exe
DetectFile14=%localappdata%\RockMelt\Application\rockmelt.exe
DetectFile15=%ProgramFiles%\RockMelt\Application\rockmelt.exe
DetectFile16=%LocalAppData%\Comodo\Dragon\dragon.exe
DetectFile17=%ProgramFiles%\Comodo\Dragon\dragon.exe

not really because each chrome installs in it's own version folder iirc

 

the reason for removing settings.sol is it holds your list of visited sites and was the only way of removing those (at least at the time it was created) I wasn't aware of the rest of the more* entry as I am not on a pc at the moment.

I found something strange that very recent versions of firefox do (I don't know which version it started with, but I use FF 15.0a1 en-US portable). When I was defragging my hard drive, I found that firefox had generated a large collection of .png thumbnails of sites that I had been to. (I was offline at the time.) I assume that firefox does this because the optional thumbnail view of open tabs uses them. I'm not sure if it's a fluke or not, but when I CCleaner with CCEnhancer & the latest Winapp2.ini file, it didn't get the thumbnails in question. Could somebody make sure that the latest Winapp2.ini file either has entries for them or gets the needed entries in the next version?

 

The location of the thumbnails is here.

C:\Users\YOUR-NAME\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\vnpzc0ku.default\thumbnails\0\0

to

C:\Users\YOUR-NAME\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\vnpzc0ku.default\thumbnails\f\f

I will add this to the next version (assuming it's not implemented in the official binary already at that point!)

 

[Thumbnails*]
LangSecRef=3026
Detect=HKLM\Software\Mozilla\Firefox
Default=False
FileKey1=%AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*\thumbnails|*.*|RECURSE

For SnagIt 11 More*, need to include FileKey5 to remove stored videos.

 

[snagit 11 More*]
LangSecRef=3024
Detect=HKCU\Software\TechSmith\SnagIt\11
Default=False
Warning=This will delete the backups of the captures that you have performed with SnagIt 11.
FileKey1=%LocalAppData%\TechSmith\Snagit|*.bin
FileKey2=%LocalAppData%\TechSmith\Snagit\DataStore|*.sdf
FileKey3=%LocalAppData%\TechSmith\Snagit\DataStore|*.SNAG
FileKey4=%LocalAppData%\TechSmith\Snagit\DataStore|*.SNAGundo
FileKey5=%LocalAppData%\TechSmith\Snagit\DataStore|*.MP4
RegKey1=HKCU\Software\TechSmith\Snagit\11|CaptureCount

I wonder if other Firefox clones also produce those thumbnails as well?

 

Probably, but the only one I can think of that doesn't use the default profile location is Pale Moon. What is it, %AppData%\Moonchild Productions\Pale Moon\Profiles?
