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: )

Backup now & backup often.
It's your digital life - protect it with a backup.

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

 

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.
