TextPad's registry setting of replacing Notepad is cleared each time  I run Wise Registry cleaner.

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\Notepad.exe\Debugger "C:\Program Files\TextPad 8\TextPad.exe" -n : Notepad.exe has been hijacked by "C:\Program Files\TextPad 8\TextPad.exe" -n.

 

How can I list this in the Settings to ignore this key?

Not sure I understood.

Usually: right-click on the item, click on ignore this item.

 

If the problem is different, please post a screenshot.

Xilo, thanks for the reply. I was aware that I can ignore the item, but do I have to select 'ignore' each time the Registry cleaner is used or can I store the information in the Settings\Exclusions. . .  and in what format?

It should be always excluded for next scans (if you don't uninstall the program, or if you don't remove the exclusion.dat from the program folder).

Does it reappear?

 

That's why I asked you to post a screenshot: I never saw that message.

My apologies. Didn't understand why you needed a screenshot. There are two links below. to the jpg screenshots of my setup. Nothing was moved or reinstalled, but the registry key in question is checked each time I run a registry scan.

I tried it and it doesn't find the item again.
I've set the Debugger string value in this way (exported by regedit to notepad):

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\Notepad.exe]
"Debugger"="\"D:\\Applicazioni\\HippoEDIT 1.6.31 PRO portable\\hippoedit.exe\" -n"
I used hippoedit (because I have the portable version) instead of textpad (which I didn't install).
It indeed opened hippoedit when I tried to open notepad.
I scanned image file execution only and WRC found two (same) items.

(It should have found one item only...).
I ignored one of them and at next scan the item didn't appear.

To ignore items: select the item, then ignore it.
If you only right-click the item, it won't be selected: you won't ignore it even if you click "ignore this item".

Thanks again for your efforts in installing the software just to test it, but the solution doesn't work for me. (A Windows 7 Pro 32bit desktop). I understood your instructions perfectly regarding the selection and the application of ignore, but the setting does not stick. To be sure, I tried all possibilities.

 

What does work is if I deselect the Image File execution in the Custom scanning. I realize that this solution has a serious drawback, but this is the only application that is listed in the Image File execution. Also, this is a single user computer, and I have all the needed software tools and plan no new software installations for the foreseeable future, I took the risk.

 

Thanks again.

Hey ineuw,
Sorry for the delay.
And, thanks xilolee.

 

There are 2 ways to ignore a specify item(registry)
1, Right click on the item, click Ignore Selected Entry
2, Click Settings (the spanner icon), click Exclusion, Add a Keyword, then enter HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\Notepad.exe\, click Save button to save and exit.

 

It won't list it again, unless you uninstall wise registry cleaner.

 

BTW, I installed TextPad 8.1.1 in my Windows 7 32bit system, but I didn't find this registry entry in registry.
Please try my methods again.

Hi,

 

To activate the Notepad replacement you find the setting on the Preferences\General tab.

 

Unfortunately, neither of the possibilities work for me as you can see in the attached images. They do nothing. The cleanup removes this registry setting no matter what I do.

 

In Wise \Settings\Exclusion panel, I added the keyword "textpad", followed by a space and then pasted "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\Notepad.exe\". But, I have my doubts if this is correct. Please examine the attached screenshot.

 

Currently, I manually deselect this each time I run the registry cleaner, since I realized that disabling the key is a very dangerous thing to do.

Hey,

I followed your settings, when I ran wise registry cleaner, it can list Textpad registry entry.

But if I ignored it, wise registry cleaner won't list it again.

Which version of wise registry cleaner did you use?

Please try wise care 365 to check whether it can exclude Textpad registry entry.

Thanks for your attaching the image of the exclusion panel. The exclusion works in Wise 365 on the first cleaning, and the Registry Cleaner on the SECOND cleaning. One of my problems was the wording "Keyword" is misleading.

well, we will improve the button name.
When you correct exclusion list (just keep the one you added via Ignore menu), does it work?
