"add new hardware" wizard MRU

Recommended Posts

Hi,

if you want, in a next release you can add this feature (for MRU deleting) in CC

 

Installation Sources => REG_MULTI_SZ entries

 

in

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup

 

 

This device list pops up when you use "add new hardware" wizard.

 

After months or year this list is so full, and I have to swipe it manually.

 

Thanks.

Thanks, Sisto. The developers read all threads so I'm sure they will look into your suggestion.

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

If you use winapp2.ini (the community cleaning file) I've made this for it, and have tested it.
 
It's available under: Applications -> Windows
You'll have to enable it for it to be cleaned.
 
[Add New Hardware Wizard (MRU)*]
LangSecRef=3025
Default=False
Detect=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup
RegKey1=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup|Installation Sources

I've submitted the cleaning routine to the winapp2.ini file, seen here.

I have it on Win7 64bit but only one entry in there.

 

I only had one entry there myself for my new NIC card which I'll probably never reinstall the drivers for, although I didn't know anything about that MRU location.

That key exists from win xp, then vista, 7 (imagine also 8), 32 or 64.

From 13 year I have to delete in every pc I used.

If you want see it, go to

add new hardware (starting from add legacy driver or where you want

select the device driver you want ....

have disk button

browse...

and list pops up (with last MRU)

Sometime list got 20-30 entries... that's beautiful after swiping it, all blank!

 

Thanks for feedback
