WarCraft III: World of WarCraft (Wc3:WoW) is the most accurate WoW replica mod for WarCraft III: The Frozen Throne, featuring many elements as WoW does. It is a Single Player Campaign and the WarCraft III engine does not allow Campaigns to be played online or even on LAN. Wc3:WoW is currently being developed by a group of developers who hope to become pro some day called Condemned Entertainment. Previously, the team was given the simple 'Wc3:WoW Team' title, but after realizing it wasn't a professional team title to stick with, the team name was changed. Right now, the leader of Wc3:WoW is Craka_J, who had led the project through tedious development for over 4 years.
Yet again a virus has made me unable to retrieve Wc3:WoW from my PC or even upload it online. It's not totally over just yet since I'm still trying to fix it, but so far... no chance.

For the past two days I've been trying to get my PC to load the desktop and applications on my computer so I can run a virus scan, a disk cleanup, and a disk defrag. Unfortunately, I cannot do any of the three. The computer either loads simple functions such as right-clicking very slowly or freezes completely before or after I get to the desktop.
What does this have to do with Wc3:WoW? Because it's the end of the project once again. This is probably the third time this has happened. This time I did make a backup file, but never uploaded it or put it on a CD because it's nearly 100mb large and takes an hour or so to upload. I'm usually too busy to do this. But finally, a virus has made it onto my computer some how yet again and I believe I've lost absolutely everything this time.
Sure there's other versions of Wc3:WoW I've got saved, but those are very outdated compared to my version. Mulgore, Durotar, and Warsong Gulch had much more progress made on them in my version than in the older versions.
If I cannot get my computer fixes within the next couple days, it's curtains for the project for WarCraft III. There's a good side and bad side to this though. Bad, all our WarCraft III fans don't get anything in return - not even a BETA. Good, we decide to give StarCraft II's Galaxy Editor a try to see if we can make a SC2:WoW instead of a WC3:WoW. Sorry to bring this nightmarish news to you guys.
