    msdaora.dll - removal by CCleaner


    Hello to all,
    Quick question. Very often when I run CCleaner registry scan it marks the msdaora.dll file for removal. I always allow it with no backup but it seems to keep coming back. Minor research seems to be that it is a authentic .dll, but why is CCleaner prompting it's removal. Is it unimportant? Idle minds would like a bit of explanation is anyone feels so inclined. Thanks

    Same here, and the dll is still on the system in Program Files (x86)/ Common Files/System/Ole DB. Assuming CCleaner is flagging it on mistake would be my guess.

    I've just right clicked on it in CCleaner and added it to the Exclude list, until they fix their definitions.

    Howdy Airbot,
    I generally trust CCleaner so that is why I have been letting it remove it. Haven't noticed anything not working. What benefit if you care to elaborate would adding it to the exclude list do? Thanks also for your response!

    No real benefit to it besides not seeing it anymore when/if you run another scan. I just leave it in the exclude list so I don't have to see it until whenever the CCleaner developer/s decide to update and stop detecting it, as it's not removing it and it just comes back. Whenever that is.

    I have exactly the same issue - added it to CCleaner ignore list for now.

    The Final Solution.


    Hi,

    CCleaner will always come back with that issue because there are two
    "...\Common Files\System\Ole DB\" folders:

    1. “C:\Program Files\” with only 14 files
    2. “C:\Program Files (x86)\” with 22 files, including msdaora.dll.

    Therefore, just copy “msdaora.dll” from path #2 to path #1. That's all. That issue will never come back again.

    Keep in mind that Ccleaner is a good tool that scans the surface of the registry, like vacuuming a carpet, a daily job. While others like Registry First Aid scans much deeper, like washing the carpet with a machine. RFA would have found that “msdaora.dll” was somewhere else and would have suggested the proper fix, e.g., to make the registry to point the right address.

    Tip: When you install a new program, I recommend to save the registry twice, a ‘before’ and ‘after’ like:

    1. Program'sName(before).reg
    2. Program'sName(after).reg
    3. Program'sName(difference).txt

    TextPad, a text editor can compare any type of file and reports which line is different. That report will give exactly what the Program's uninstall left behind. But the uninstall of many softwares are incomplete (maybe intentionally), which consequently might results in some deep broken paths. Now you know where they are.
