Revo Uninstaller helps you to uninstall software and remove unwanted programs installed on your computer even if you have problems uninstalling and cannot uninstall them from "Windows Add or Remove Programs" ( or “Programs and Features” ) control panel applet.

Revo Uninstaller is a much faster and more powerful alternative to "Windows Add or Remove Programs" applet!

With its advanced and fast algorithm, Revo Uninstaller analyzes an application's data before uninstall and scans after you uninstall an application. After the program's regular uninstaller runs, you can remove additional unnecessary files, folders and registry keys that are usually left over on your computer. Even if you have a broken installation, Revo Uninstaller scans for an application's data on your hard disk drives and in the Windows registry and shows all found files, folders and registry keys so you can delete them.
There are tens of thousands of applications that leave a lot of unused data such as registry entries, files and folders in your computer. Not all registry keys left in your computer are errors, and the third party registry cleaners cannot detect them. Leftover registry keys in combination with leftover files make the registry cleaner's job impossible. Revo Uninstaller helps you to remove the leftover registry keys, files and folders after uninstalling an application.

With its unique "Hunter mode", Revo Uninstaller offers you some simple, easy to use, but effective and powerful methods for uninstalling software. You can use it to manage your installed and/or running software programs.

Revo Uninstaller gives you another 8 handy and powerful tools to clean up your system.
Here is the list of the tools and utilities included in Revo Uninstaller:
  • AutoRun Manager - Stop programs that start automatically on Windows startup; speed up loading of Windows!
  • Windows Tools Manager - Handy and useful tools bundled with every version of Windows; easily find useful system tools and options!

Note: The companies download page includes both the freeware version and a trial of their paid professional version; be sure to use the freeware link on their website if that is what you were after.

WARNING: Be extremely careful if you use the Junk Files Cleaner. Unless you modify it in options, it assumes every file with an extension .old or with the tilda (~) is junk. I often rename the older version of documents with this extension to keep them around but not use them accidently. Also the ~ often means Not or Approximately so I use it in sound wav names. Be extremely careful to check what it wants to delete and to tweak the options to suit your needs!

Revo Uninstaller can delete the toughest programs, finding all traces of the unwanted software. I use the Pro version everytime that I reinstall my OEM OS, as there is a lot of "bloatware" installed, and Revo gets rid of it all.

I highly recommend it for everyone, especially those who purchases a new computer, to get rid of the tons of useless "crapware" or "bloatware" that ships with the computer. For the 64 bit user (most new are 64 bit, except netbooks), the Pro version is a must, as the regular version misses many installed programs.

A 5 Star app for anyone to use. Just know what you're getting rid of prior to using it. As I always recommend, backup your computer before doing anything, using a good backup program such as Macrium Reflect (found in the Free Software Database), or better yet, if you have a WD or Seagate backup drive, there are free versions of Acronis for this purpose (these are also found in the Free Software Database). I'm a strong believer in two things, running backup & AV software.

Revo will serve you well.

I highly recommend this software, and have been using it for a long time. It does usually find a lot of stuff that the basic uninstaller leaves behind. However, I've never really worked out what the Hunter Mode is really for!
