CCleaner "unused file extensions" detection isn't working correctly it's still generating loads of false positives.

Know how you feel but it's been ignored for 7 versions now so not holding out much hope it'll be fixed. Just means keeping v3.03 for when I do a reg clean, a nuisance but better than the alternative of programs breaking every time you run it.

No disrespect or anything, however it's all over in the CCleaner forum area with posts about the file extensions cleaning in the registry causing issues and detecting valid file extensions and removing them which it really shouldn't be doing, and also people complaining about removing an extension it detects for it to only reappear the next time they run the registry cleaner.

 

That's why so many of us won't update past v3.03.1366 anymore.:( I do hope something can be done about the false positives, however since it's been so many versions we've complained about and have been ignored when posting our concerns I myself have all but given up hope.:(

 

Edit:

Here's a list of topics complaining about the aggressiveness of the registry cleaner now, I may have been able to find more topics but got bored doing it and think what's listed shows the reason for concern:

Big thanks for the new version. What I loved the most in the new version is that u can delete all temp files in firefox but spare the sessions, absolutely nice new future.

 

CCleaner is hard to develop further since its nearly perfekt already ;)

 

But what I would love is: I forgotten the name, but there is also an at least from what I remember another good shredding method that is or at least was available(forgot its name since it was years when I had a shredder with this function), a 14x shredding method, similiar to NSA it rewrittes in various ways. If this would be possible it would be great. If not I will simply stick to NSA?s 7x. So or so a great overall tool.

Discussed many times over. In short, any more than one overwrite is a waste of time (except for adding unnecessary wear to your drive). Only reason CCleaner includes other methods is, IMO, to keep the non believers happy and to save the endless stream of "Please add million overwrite method" posts ;)

I see so more than one overwrite with NSA is really not. Then really running a MFT+free space run once a few months is more than enough already. Thanks then this is a done topic for me. Btw. thinking about it: The main problem may be thanks to what you mainly get from googling and searching... You get specially on rewritting methods tons of different informations etc. etc. You are like never really provided with the information you need. Well guess thats thanks to companys that want to sell shredders to earn cash. Nonelass thanks, again learned something usefull.

Thanks for the update!

 

I have to agree with the other posters in here.

Unused file extensions is STILL the most dangerous registry cleaning entry in CCleaner.

 

It is probably the reason some people say their computer is unbootable after a CClean.

Some people run a reg clean also, thinking it to be 100% safe.

 

I will test 3.10 a bit more, to see if any of the older bugs, such as listing .jpg, .exe, .mp3, .zip, etc have changed!
