Cleans diskspace from temp files steam games produce every time you play.

// 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

// Features//

+ Threaded version - Interface no longer freezes and is closable
+ Support for 9 games
+ Completely customizable options, only deletes what you tell it to.
+ Safe, Files are only moved to the recycling bin, not removed Permanently.
+ Will free up loads of wasted space by removing pointless old files you gain from playing on servers.
+ No need to install, runs straight out of the zip.
+ Completely freeware & GPL Open sourced, no trial versions, or adware etc.
+ No need to run steam while using.
+ Made in VB2008
+ Tested on XP, Vista and 7
+ Requires Net Framework 3.0+

Any queries or questions post below, and ill reply within the week.

    This would be perfect if you could add support for Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2.

    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
