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 set the directory to just my d drive, maybe i should also set it to a specific folder?
And there is no error, it just goes to "program is not responding" and then I have to turn it off via task manager.

Did you set a backup directory in Tools > Options?

Can you give me the error message that you get, if you get one, when it happens?

I'll play around with the backup a little and see if I can get it to work wrong. :P

Edit: I checked on a Vista comp, and somehow, it takes longer then on my other system for the backup to complete. I tested on XP and Windows7, where the backup time was just "normal" but on Vista it took 3 times as long.

Did the program crashed with a error, or did you just see the progress bar at like 35% and then it staying like that?

If that is the case, give it some time. Seems the backup takes longer on Vista for a weird reason. (I blame bad coding on Vista's side :P).

I understand what you mean. But wow interface curse and wowmatrix also has programs that work with the wow directory and that people use.

As long as you download a file from a trustworthy source, like wow interface, you can be sure it isn't anything malicious. that and as Elloria pointed it out, wow interface is picking it apart first before its placed here.

If they wow interface wants the source because they don't trust my application, hell I would give it to them.

Also, I created the program for myself in the first place. And then I decided to upload it as well, because there might be other people interested in it!

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.

Keep in mind that every executable that is uploaded to wow interface is picked appart clean before it is even approved. They wouldn't put up anything that is malicious.

I think this program is very helpful for compilation authors myself. I seem to forget to go through and delete the saved variables of other mods that arent include in my packages.

Why is this program trying to access the internet when run?
