Yahoo sign in seal stored as a Macromedia Flash .sol file

by tomcatonnet99 / December 26, 2007 7:43 PM PST

Using winxp home edition, 256MB on a wireless broadband desk top modem connection

yahoo sign in seal gets stored in My documents and settings\macromedia.. in a .sol format/extension, now I use Ccleaner as the registry and disk/temp files cleaner which used to store settings to .ini file until now, I tweaked the registry for tcp/ip (and hence see no connection to CCleaner.ini in any way).... but for some reason it seems to delete the logincache file for the said yahoo seal, looking into the registry I realised that all 'file ext' had entries in their 'open with' registry key but this file........... i.e .SOL extension.. how do I set this and perhaps some CCleaner user might be able to throw light on this new problem I'm facing with the very same version of the program that worked perfectly well..

Pls help !

CCleaner Application options
by MarkFlax Forum moderator / December 27, 2007 4:44 AM PST

I'm not technically minded so I didn't entirely understand your post, especially where you say you tweaked CCleaner's .ini file and tweaked the registry for TCP/IP so see no connection to CCleaner.ini in any way.

Perhaps you are going too deeply?

In CCleaner in the first option to remove cookies and temporary files, you have two tabs, Windows and Applications. Click the Applications tab and remove the tick for Adobe Flash Player. Now, when you click the Analyze button, CCleaner ignores that Documents and Settings\..\..\Macromedia folder.

Or, before running CCleaner, remove that .sol file and return it after the cleaner has done its work.

flash object file exclusion in ccleaner
by tomcatonnet99 / December 27, 2007 8:31 AM PST

fair comment Mark, just wondering about my excluding the flash files from the cleaner, would affect all flash temp files?? and hence they wouldn't be cleaned... the thing is this didn't happen earlier and as you rightly said they have no connection; which leads me to believe there has been some format change by yahoo, coz this didn't happen earlier on and now it does!

shouldn't there be some setting in the ccleaner.ini file?? coz in that file i don't see a line of code for .......SAVE .INI SETTINGS

Yes I think it would

By excluding the Macromedia folder from CCleaner's analysis then no temporary flash files would get deleted.

I see from CCleaner's forum site that you can add applications to the .ini file but that's not something I have any expertise or knowledge of. Perhaps posting a question in their forums might help?

I am a little perplexed why Yahoo stores a login file in the Macromedia folder. I realize this might be a flash login process but it still surprises me that Yahoo doesn't locate the file elsewhere. Strange.

Good luck.
