    The plugin should of had a deactivate hook. No there is no plugin that can do that. Created a backup of your database and then the delete the tables you need to.

    I just released a plugin to backup the database http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/complete-central-backup

    But if you have access to phpMyAdmin then you can just export your database before doing anything.

    Thank you for Fast Answear.

    and from here here is one Suggestion for all wordpress developper

    If it s possible to add a Checkbox that ask u if u want delete
    pluging Tables.... when we are deleting a plugin
    I think will be usefull to keep database clean

    Thanks again for all wordpress Community.
