The Exclusion list feature allows you to remove certain registry keys, files, or cookies that you don't want to include in the PC Cleaner scans.
- Open Toolbox.
- Select the Exclusion list feature.
- You can choose to exclude files from the Registry keys, Files, Cookies, and Notifications categories.
Excluding Registry Keys – We recommend extreme caution when excluding registry paths. If invalid registry keys are created under the path which you excluded then PC Cleaner will not be able to track those registries and therefore will not be able to fully clean and optimize your registry.
Excluding Files – There may be certain files that you don’t want to be included in future scans, for example maybe you don’t want to remove all traces of your skype conversations. Use the Exclusion List to select any files you don’t wish to include in future scans. If you have already chosen to exclude files during your clean-up scan those files will be displayed under files on the Exclusion menu.
Excluding Cookies – There may be cookies that contain login credentials that you use automatically when visiting trusted sites such as banks or credit card companies. These cookies can be hard to identify but if you know the cookies you can enter them and exclude them from future scans. Our Smart Cookie Scan is enabled by default and tries to help identify important cookies so that they can be automatically excluded but Smart Cookie Scan can’t identify banking or credit card cookies.
- Select any files you don’t wish to include in future scans.
- Click Remove item.
