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.

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.

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!

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

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?

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

Thumbs up Idea: Automatically delete redundant .lua files?

Great tool!

Just an idea: Is it possible to add a "button" to delete all .lua/.lua.bak files automatically which have no longer a corresponding addon inside the addon folder?

Re: Idea: Automatically delete redundant .lua files?

"Vista is just crap" is not a solution to a problem.

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.

WoW Crap Cleaner

People calling Vista crap are uneducated morons or just anti-Microsoft fanatics.

More to the point, WoW throws everything in folders such as WTF, WDB and Interface straight into RAM when it boots up, deleting random unused files will slightly reduce your memory consumption, depending on what files are laying around.

I personally have Curse Client do it for me since it's built in, nifty program none-the-less though.

Do you have the Microsoft.NET Framework 3.5 installed? That is needed for my application to run.

I too have the issue with it freezing (Non Responsive) when I click search.
I Filled in all the folder options correctly, I do have the latest version of Microsoft Framework, and the first time I downloaded and ran this software, it ran fine.

(Saved it to my desktop from the rar file, ran it form my desktop, setup my folder options, clicked search, created a backup, and cleaned the files, then exited.)

Since then I have run it a few times just to make a backup and never had any problems, however sicne that first run I have not clicked the search button, only the backup button, this morning I tried to do another scan and I started getting this freeze.

I tried rebooting, restarting the program over and over and it seems to happen every time, so basically after my first install and run the search button no longer works.

Running Vista Ultimate x64 here. Are there any logs I can provide you with to maybe help find a solution? Thanks for the great program!

I've had the same exact problem, though I'm running XP SP2 and only have the 2.0 framework. Downloading the 3.5 as I type to see what that does for me...


yeah... so that made no difference...well I take that back, no it just sits there longer before it times out and tells me it's not responding

Running Vista Home Premium 64bit SP2, with .net fully up to date, and the freezing is random, but this works less than it "freezes".

Best zip/unzip is 7zip http://www.7-zip.org/

Hi, this program worked fine for me when I clicked "delete leftover files".

However, when I then selected a third party addon and clicked "Delete", it froze up. Checking the Addon folder, the addon I wanted it to delete had indeed disappeared, but the program had ceased responding.

Also, I'm curious why this program needs to connect to the internet? My bandwidth monitor program popped up a permission box for this program, and when I clicked "No", it promptly had an error and closed. It opens fine though when allowed to connect to the net.


*Edit: I'm using XP and have Framework 3.5.
