XCleaner is a simple tool for deleting temporary files and fixing extension problems.

OS X Yosemite-like UI is not a part of this app. For now.

I like how it looks, and the code is simple. 

CCleaner tells me there is one thing to clean out of my registry whereas XCleaner tells me there are 453 things. 

Can you have an option to display a list of items that XCleaner plans to delete from the registry?

Just don't use it guys. It totally messed up my registry, since it deleted such associations, like txt, pictures etc. It needs much more bugfixes.

I've just made version 1.1.

Changes:

  • Excluding categories from being cleaned up
  • Showing list of files or registry keys XCleaner wants to delete and selecting which ones we want to clean up.
  • HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerFileExts key is not scanned now.

Yeah you definitely shouldn't run it until certain precautions are in place.

Which brings me to this: should you have an option to create a system restore or a registry backup?

      good morning everybody.
      today i liked to share an small example with you
      which it an function to read the registry values as an array
      the result array is 2d array witch
      $a_array[n][0] = value name
      $a_array[n][1] = value Data
      $a_array[0][0] = values count
      here's the function

      #include <Array.au3> #include <WinAPIReg.au3> #include <APIRegConstants.au3> Local $a_array = _RegReadToArray("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run") If @error Then     MsgBox(16, "error", @error)     Exit EndIf _ArrayDisplay($a_array) Func _RegReadToArray($s_RegKey)     Local $a_KeySplitInfo = StringSplit($s_RegKey, "\\", 2)     If UBound($a_KeySplitInfo) <= 1 Then         $a_KeySplitInfo = StringSplit($s_RegKey, "\", 2)         If UBound($a_KeySplitInfo) <= 1 Then Return (1, 1, 0)     EndIf     Local $H_KeyInfo = "", $s_RegKeyInfo = ""     Switch $a_KeySplitInfo[0]         Case "hklm", "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE", "hklm64", "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE64"             $H_KeyInfo = $HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE         Case "hkCu", "HKEY_CURRENT_USER", "hkCU64", "HKEY_CURRENT_USER64"             $H_KeyInfo = $HKEY_CURRENT_USER         Case "hkCr", "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT", "HKCR64", "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT64"             $H_KeyInfo = $HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT         Case "HKU", "HKEY_USERS", "HKU64", "HKEY_USERS64"             $H_KeyInfo = $HKEY_USERS         Case Else             Return SetError(2, 2, 0)     EndSwitch     _ArrayDelete($a_KeySplitInfo, 0)     $s_RegKeyInfo = _ArrayToString($a_KeySplitInfo, "\")     Local $H_KeyInfoOpen = _WinAPI_RegOpenKey($H_KeyInfo, $s_RegKeyInfo, $KEY_READ)     Local $A_KeyInfo = _WinAPI_RegQueryInfoKey($H_KeyInfoOpen)     If @error Then Return SetError(1, 1, 0)     _WinAPI_RegCloseKey($H_KeyInfoOpen)     Local $A_RegVal[$A_KeyInfo[2] + 1][2]     Local $iV = 1, $s_RegRead = ""     While 1         $s_RegVal = RegEnumVal($s_RegKey, $iV)         If @error <> 0 Then ExitLoop         $s_RegRead = RegRead($s_RegKey, $s_RegVal)         If Not (@error) Then             $A_RegVal[$iV][0] = $s_RegVal             $A_RegVal[$iV][1] = $s_RegRead         EndIf         $iV += 1     WEnd     $A_RegVal[0][0] = UBound($A_RegVal) - 1     If $A_RegVal[0][0] >= 1 Then         Return $A_RegVal     Else         Return SetError(3, 3, 0)     EndIf EndFunc   ;==>_RegReadToArray
      i hope you benefit from it
      with my greetings

      Hi,
      I wondered why negative integers I wrote into registry (e.g. negative x-coordinates of a gui if using two monitors and the right one is the main one) wouldn't return right when reading. Now I know: it is saved as an unsigned integer (without algebraic sign). So here is a snippet that is changing unsigned to signed integer:
      Global Const $g_sRegKey = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\" & @ScriptName ; path to registry RegWrite($g_sRegKey, "Value", "REG_DWORD", -2147483647) ; write some negative integer into registry; -2147483647 highest possible negative integer , 2147483648 highest possible positive integer if talking of 32bit Local $sValue = RegRead($g_sRegKey, "Value") ; read out registry ConsoleWrite("Value: " & $sValue & @CRLF) ; show real value in console Local $sResult = _SignedInteger($sValue) ; change to signed value ConsoleWrite("Result: " & $sResult & @CRLF) ; and show it in console Func _SignedInteger($iUnsignedInteger) Local $iSignedInteger If $iUnsignedInteger > (2^31) Then ; then it means a negative integer $iSignedInteger = $iUnsignedInteger - (2^32) Else $iSignedInteger = $iUnsignedInteger EndIf Return $iSignedInteger EndFunc It took me some time to find out the problem and so I hope I can help somebody with this.

      Hello everyone, I am working on a project which requires reading a few values from Excel, the catch is that I need it to be very fast... unfortunatley I found out that read operations using the supplied Excel UDF are very slow, more than 150 ms for each operation on average
      Here is my testing setup that I made:
      #include <Excel.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Global $iTotalTime = 0 Test() Func Test() Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open() Local $oBook = _Excel_BookAttach("Test.xlsx", "FileName", $oExcel) Local $sSheet = "Sheet1" If @error Then Return MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "Excel Failed", "Failed to attach to Excel") Local $iNum For $iRow = 1 To 6 Time() Local $iNum = Number(_Excel_RangeRead($oBook, $sSheet, "A" & $iRow)) If ($iNum = 1) Then ConsoleWrite("Row " & $iRow & " is 1 and value of column B is " & _Excel_RangeRead($oBook, $sSheet, "B" & $iRow)) Else ConsoleWrite("Row " & $iRow & " is not 1") EndIf ConsoleWrite(". Reading took: ") Time() Next ConsoleWrite("The whole operation took " & $iTotalTime & " milliseconds." & @CRLF) EndFunc Func Time() Local Static $hTimer Local Static $bRunning = False If $bRunning Then Local $iTime = Round(TimerDiff($hTimer), 2) $iTotalTime += $iTime ConsoleWrite($iTime & @CRLF) Else $hTimer = TimerInit() EndIf $bRunning = Not $bRunning EndFunc And Test.xlsx in CSV format:
      1,-1 -1,1 1,-1 1,1 -1,-1 1,1 Here is the actual xlsx but it should expire in a week: https://we.tl/t-EVkxGp1kc6
      And finally output from my script:
      Row 1 is 1 and value of column B is -1. Reading took: 276.06 Row 2 is not 1. Reading took: 163.36 Row 3 is 1 and value of column B is -1. Reading took: 302.58 Row 4 is 1 and value of column B is 1. Reading took: 294.65 Row 5 is not 1. Reading took: 152.33 Row 6 is 1 and value of column B is 1. Reading took: 284.92 The whole operation took 1473.9 milliseconds.  
      Taking ~1.5 seconds for reading 6 rows of data is bad for my script, which needs to run as fast as possible . It would be nice if I can bring this down to 100 ms somehow, I am not very experienced working with MS office so I thought about asking you folks for help and advice on how I can optimize my script to squeeze out every bit of performance that I can get from this script
       
      Thanks for the help in advance!

      I've looked at a bunch of SetACL examples on this site and none seem to be able to convert this batch script into a working AutoIt script.
      BATCH

      I'm writing a little applet that basically tells you when Windows was installed.  There is a REG_DWORD in Windows that gives you this. It's basically a value that is the # of seconds from 1970.
      The location is:  "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\InstallDate"
      So if I run this in AutoIT, I should get the value displayed within the msgbox:
      MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "InstallDate Test", RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion", "InstallDate"))
      However, what happens is it always returns a value of "0"  I tried this on several machines (Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10). 
      Am I missing something?  If I manually view this REG_DWORD with RegEdit, it shows me the HEX value, or I can view the Decimal value. I don't care which value AutoIT reads, as I can always convert back and forth, but I just don't see why it can't read a value from this REG_DWORD.  As a test, I've read other REG_DWORD values, and with most it doesn't return any value, not even a 0.
      Please, even if you guys have some other (perhaps better) way to read the Windows install date, I would still like to find a resolution to this problem, because I want to understand why I am having so much difficulty with reading REG_DWORD values from the Windows Registry with AutoIT.
      Thanks for any help!
