Ok, having a bit of a problem

Ok, so my interface shows up as nothing but green bars and its really aggravating because this ui looks really good. Here is a picture of my problem.
(Note: I tried running wow with only the nui addon but still the same problem.)

You're definately *not* running with with just nUI because those unit frames at the top of your screen are *not* nUI's. So there's definitely some conflicts going on there.

I do see that you have it fixed, but I still want to *strongly* recommend you go to http://www.nUIaddon.com/documentation.html then click on the "Installation" tab and follow the instructions for a first time install.

I found out my friend had added crap to my patch folder that changed some other things, so I removed them.

Also, I had put my addons back in before I decided to take that picture, that's why you see them. But I had tried it without any addons except nui.

It can be confusing. In the nUI user document you will find this statement:

There are no special installation requirements for this mod and nUI does not require that you set up or modify any files in your WTF folder
And yet the Installation instructions specifically tell you to:
Exit WoW and rename your [ WTF ] folder to [ WTF.saved ] as well a renaming your [ Interface ] folder to [ Interface.saved ]
Bottom line, nUI can conflict with other mods you have preinstalled. Although like most mod developers the author likes to say the other mods interfere with nUI

You shouldn't need to do anything other than to install nUI and it works. However, if you find there are problems, following the nUI install instructions can help you figure out what mods are causing the problems.

Oh and don't let your friends install stuff on your computer. Period. Doing tech support and writing security software for years I can tell you that most customer problems start out with "My friend (co-worker/little brother) installed something on my computer and now I can't do ..."

In fact the WTF step is by no means mandatory for a nUI installation. It is there as a precaution step. (I never did that and my nUI is perfectly functional )

I know you fixed it by repairing wow. Another suggestion is to make sure you have the latest video driver installed for your video card as well.

There's actually a reason for that apparently conflicting set of statements.

The bottom line is that a LOT of users have been using UI compilations that have made a lot of other changes to other mods, some of which are very common mods. In addition, WoW loads everything in the WTF folder even if there is no longer a mod associated with it.

So... the first time install set of removing the WTF folder is intended to accomplish two things... (1) reset all mods to their default settings so that if the user re-installs them to use with nUI they are doing so in their default configuration without and modifications made by other UI compilations and (2) eliminate any wasted memory and odd defined variables that may make other mods behave in unexpected ways if an associated mod is no longer installed. In many cases, the WTF variables contain data about relationships between mods that can cause issues, as well.

The "remove the WTF" folder step serves to put the entire game and UI into a known state. As an IT person, you know the value of having a known state to start from when you're trying to track down a problem.
