Suggestion to add wildcard detection in bleachbit for Detect's and Detect Files

Great idea. Sorry for the slow reply. I marked it here so it does not get lost

Today I added support for the wildcard * in DetectFile#=, but I don't see wildcards used with any registry keys for Detect= . Would you provide an example? Otherwise, I will limit this enhancement to DetectFile

Should be ok to limit it to DetectFile's. When I suggested it there was some uncertainty if win8 apps would use the same ID in the registry on all systems. For the most part they stay the same unless it's a huge update.

example: The detect with Microsoft.BingHealthAndFitness_8wekyb3d8bbwe turns into Microsoft.BingHealthAndFitness_*

[Bing Health and Fitness*]
LangSecRef=3031
Detect=HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppModel
\SystemAppData\Microsoft.BingHealthAndFitness_*
Default=False
FileKey1=%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.BingHealthAndFitness_*\LocalState\Cache|*.*|RECURSE

Please test the fix in BleachBit 1.3 beta
