Microsoft Security Essentials software

Location: Computer/C/ProgramData/Microsoft/Microsoft Antimalware/Support/Scans


CCleaner is not picking up the files in the Support folder for automatic deletion.


The virus-checking software from Microsoft is a processor-hawg that can only be shut down using the Services menu.


Currently setting CCleaner to "Include" deletion of files in both the Support and Scans folders without affecting the operation of the software.


Running Windows Vista Service Pack 2.

Please Phrase this better, I'm not understanding what you are asking/saying is a bug.

The following Two Entries are what ccleaner by default cleans for MS Antimalware


[MS Security Client]
DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Security Client\msseces.exe
FileKey1=%CommonAppData%\Microsoft\Microsoft Security Client\Support|*.log
FileKey2=%CommonAppData%\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\Support|*.log

[MS AntiMalware]
DetectFile=%CommonAppData%\Microsoft\Microsoft antimalware
FileKey1=%CommonAppData%\Microsoft\Microsoft antimalware\support|*.log
FileKey2=%CommonAppDAta%\Microsoft\Microsoft antimalware\network inspection system\Support|*.log
FileKey3=%CommonAppData%\Microsoft\Microsoft antimalware\scans\history\results\Quick|*.*|REMOVESELF
