Steam Cleaner (Open Source)

// Steam Cleaner by icepick66// Version: 2009 V1.6.0 (9 Pack Version)

//What is it?// Its a program to remove all the crap generated by source engine games, it removes obsolete temporary files, and can be set to clean up your entire game directory, with over 17 individual settings it boasts completely customisability over the cleaning of your game.

Even if you just play these games once in a while, you still collect a lot of crap, such as other peoples sprays, sounds, maps, textures, graphs. You'll be surprised how much it adds up to: just playing one round in a 50 slot server will eat 800kb, doesn't sound much, but it all adds up if you play regularly!

Clans also often use this and then defrag before matches to get the completive edge, with cleaner directories, faster load times, and compacted necessary files.

// Games Supported// Counter Strike Source Team Fortress 2 Half Life 2 DM Synergy Garrys Mod Zombie Panic! Source The Ship Dystopia Day of defeat: Source

    Posted by ShadowFire4900 For some reason avast comes up saying its malware and idk why

    i think its because the program trys to scan your folders to find steam information and doing this fits the definition of a virus by your anti-virus program
