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.

Nice concept, but unfortunately, it is painfully slow in Vista.

This doesn't work for me, the backup works fine but when I press search no addons show up under any of the tabs.

Oh, I see. I missed it... it was a couple of posts after mine and I didn't realize it was a reply to my comment.
Thank you.

I'm not sure why.

I didn't programmed anything that has to do with the internet. What I do think it might be is, that in the application settings (by that I mean in Visual Studio) I set the option to check for Windows Installer 3.1 and Microsoft.NET Framework 3.5, and that if those are not installed it should download them from the official website.

That is the only thing I can think off.

And no, my program isn't a keylogger.

I was thinking the same thing the other day. It WOULD be nicer to have that ability.

Also, my question a while ago never got answered:
Is there a reason why this program tries to access the internet when run? My Internet Security program blocks it, but I'm curious.

Thank you.

Ahh, thanks for telling me. Guess I made a small typo since it should be just WTF.

I'll fix it.

I assume this is some sort of executable, no? So is there any way I can tell this isn't a keylogger or something like that? Not that I'm saying it is... I guess I'm just paranoid.

EDIT:
Nevermind, I just read the post a few posts down about how the site thoroughly checks for malicious software. Thanks!

This is a fantastic idea, not to mention the very simple automatic backup application built right in. A+

Yep, this is correct. This program sat on hold in the download queue until either Dolby or Shirik had the time to decompile it and break it apart. We do that for all .exe files, whether new uploads or updates to existing projects on WoWInterface. Sometimes it means that an .exe is on hold for days.

Good to hear.

I just uploaded a new version, which shows the copy file dialog when you press backup. Now you can see what the program is doing, eliminating the idea that my program has crashed!

That is odd. I Just tested it myself as well, and I got a backup created just fine in C:\. Off course, windows did told me the program was not responding, but a few seconds after that, the program came to live again (windows thinks the program hangs, but in reality it is backing it up).

I assume that you gave the program some time before terminating it?
