I am soliciting suggestions and feedback from potential users about this project.

What are your pain points with existing solutions?
What features are you looking for?
What are performance expectations?

There's only one other program (that I've found so far); we were on a trial version of it, and it expired.  It is $200....

Automation!  When I tried to automate the software mentioned above, it just crashed...

As far as performance, it doesn't matter how long it takes...  It can run all day for all I care, as long as it accurately scrubs the files...  What I would like to see, is a function that would say "Scrub the logs from yesterday", where 'yesterday' is always changing.  (Obviously  :))  We are running Webtrends, and need to prevent extra hits from eating up the page view licenses...  My biggest hangup is that I have to put in each file manually and run the program.

When I open the LogScrubberAdmin.exe, I get the following .net framework error (MS XP, .net 3.5 SP1 installed).  If I hit continue, it lets me in, but doesn't seem to do anything...  I'm no programmer, so I have no idea what I'm looking at...

See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

I'm sorry i haven't gotten a change to fix this up, it was sort of left in an unfinished state.

I will get some work done on it this weekend to finish it up.
