WoW Crap Cleaner  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: Beta 1.6
by: Sjubi [More]
WoW Crap Cleaner

What is WoW Crap Cleaner?

WoW Crap Cleaner is a tool to clean your World of Warcraft directory. The program scans your AddOn directory and WTF directory and then shows the results in a few tabs.

Which files is WoW Crap Cleaner looking for?

WoW Crap Cleaner looks for your installed AddOns, *.lua files, *lua.bak files and SavedVariable.lua and shows it all in organized tabs.

WoW Crap Cleaner has a tab for unofficial Blizzard AddOns, a tab for Blizzard AddOns, a tab for SavedVariable.lua files and a tab for *lua.bak files.

Why should I use WoW Crap Cleaner?

You should use WoW Crap Cleaner if you want to scan for settings that are left over by deleted AddOns, if you want to reset a Blizzard AddOn by deleting the setting of that specific AddOn, if you want to delete a specific SavedVariable.lua or want to remove all *lua.bak files.

IMPORTANT: Before doing anything with my program, make sure you backup your directory first. My program has a neat little button that automatically creates a backup of your Interface and WTF directory with the date of the backup. Use my program at your own risk!


Comments and suggestions are appreciated!
Beta 1.6
*Re-uploaded to confirm that it still works with WoW patch 3.3.5

Beta 1.5
*Changed the program layout once more. Should be less buggy now and work correctly.
*Added program icon. Thanks Sparanoid!
*Changed some inner coding.
*Button "Create Backup" and "Search" are back! :).

Beta 1.4
*Added the ability to delete multiple items.
*Added the ability to resize the result windows.
*Added the ability to resize the program.
*Added menu item to reset the layout to defaults.
*Placed "Create Backup" and "Search" options into the "Tool" menu.

Beta 1.3
*Fixed four small typo's.
*Fixed the way how settings are saved. Pressing "OK" in options now saves the settings immediately instead of on program close, and pressing "Cancel" will actually revert to the old settings it had before changing it.

Beta 1.2
*Added copy file dialog when making a backup, to show the user detailed status information of the progress.
*After pressing search, or deleting a AddOn (which in turn also performs a search for leftover settings of that AddOn), the first item is selected in all of the lists (if there is at least one item in the list present).

Beta 1.1
*Added a few checks to prevent the program from crashing.
*Small tweaks to the layout.
*Added progress bar when deleting multiple items.

Beta 1.0
*Release.

I'm not sure what is wrong with the program on my system, I'm going to check it out some more today. I'll post back if I can get some different results.

Now it seems that I can't unrar it. What is everyone using to unrar this file? Keeps telling me there are no files even though I can see the exe in the folder.
WinRAR -> www.rarlabs.com

I'll look into it

No error msg, it just freezes completely when i click search - (not responding) in the title bar. The only way to close it, is using the task manager.

Edit: The same thing happens with version 1.5

People still use that resolution? I'll make it around 800x600 but with a little widescreen flavor (and it wil still fit!

hi, i tested the last version you posted, but i think there is a few things you could fix like automatic recognizing of the wow folder, maybe make it find the wow exe? and then setup where the WTF folder is, also auto generate a backup folder + backup support if you wanna restore quickly

another way would be to make a installer and make sure the settings is stored in %appdata% or regedit

either way i love this!
Good suggestion, I will make it so you only need to select the wow.exe and a backup folder and the rest will be automatically detected.

I will also have a look on how to find registry settings of a specific program and let the program fill the folders in all by itself.

Auto-backup I won't do, because I want to let the user decide for himself, but restoring a backup is something I might implement.

Can't promise anything though!

As for Vista. I can't do much about it. Vista is just a crap os (imo). I blame Microsoft.

@Melis

Do you get a error? Or just a plain hard crash and that's it? If you get a error, can you post it?

It works on Vista 64-bit as that is the version I am running. However, as I mentioned earlier, it runs very very slowly which is most likely why some are posting it doesn't work. If they wait long enough, the search should eventually return results.

Hmm, odd. That should not give a problem. I will create the same setup as you and will look at what is going wrong.

I dont think there is much I can do, since Vista is (imo) a steaming pile of crap.

I'll see how I can make my program 64 bit, but I cant promise anything. It SHOULD work on Vista64 since it also works on my Windows7 64 bit setup.

why it's so big? well the icon has a vista style (256x256 px) in it.
Impressive! Thanks for the wonderfull icon! I appreciate you making it for me. I will surely credit you

@echobravo:

As for the slowness of the program with Vista, I will have a look on why it is slow, but can't promise anything. Vista is just a general pain in the ass. I run Windows7 and the program is doing fine here. Did you also had the slowness with previous versions?

@Vladimir:

I find it odd that you are the only one not getting results!

And as for wowace, I will have a look.

Original Concept

Nice idea, but if I remember correctly, this was an original concept from someone in the WoWAce Community, possibly CKKnight. It was the WoWAce updater, so if you are looking for some ideas as to how to improve this wonderful mod, you might want to contact the WoWAce people. Keep up the good work, been waiting around for this for sometime now, better then doing it all manually.
