What do stars * after an entry mean?


Recommended Posts

  • Moderators

The stars represent items not in the ccleaner program.  These entries are provided by a winapp2.ini file

 

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.

Winapp2 is pretty comprehensive and includes cleaning rules for a lot of applications that will not even be on your computer.

You should use winapp2's 'Trim' module to remove the rules for apps that you don't actually have on your machine.
If you don't trim winapp2 to only the apps that you have installed then you have a lot of unneeded cleaning rules that will simply slow CCleaner down.

(Is that why you were asking in another post about selecting/unselecting all entries in a category?)

If you need help with using winapp2 then there is a dedicated thread here:

Worried about 'Tracking Files'? Worried about why some files come back after cleaning? See this link:
