What antivirus software does Ccleaner clean?

Recommended Posts

Is there some link or info that will show which AV`s Ccleaner cleans?

Just went to Bitdefender Free AV and noticed it`s not listed on my Ccleaner utility list.

 

Thanks for any help.

a few options;

  • use the /debug switch to create winapp1.ini and it'll show what's natively done by CC.
  • use winapp2.ini to get extra things cleaned, and see what it already covers.
  • or use INCLUDES to add your own custom cleaning.

 

(there's a bell ringing in my head that there is another option but the thought just won't form :mellow: )

This is what it cleans for BitDefender, looks old though:

[BitDefender]
ID=2306
LangSecRef=3024
Detect=HKLM\Software\Softwin\BitDefender Desktop
Default=False
FileKey1=%ProgramFiles%\BitDefender\BitDefender 2009\Logs|*.*|RECURSE
FileKey2=%CommonAppData%\BitDefender\Desktop\Profiles\Logs|*.xml|RECURSE
FileKey3=%AppData%\BitDefender\Desktop\Profiles\Logs|*.xml|RECURSE

(there's a bell ringing in my head that there is another option but the thought just won't form :mellow: )

 

Resource Hacker (freeware), then load CCleaner.exe into it (but do not save) and use 'View > Find Text' which is its search function.

No you mean use the /export switch not debug and it'll create a set of files

Winapp.ini

Winsys.ini

Winreg.ini

The winapp is the one that lists all programs cleaned
