The first thing that many people do with their new computers is uninstall the bloatware. Whether it's a bunch of mindless games or a security suite that's not your favorite, clearing out the crap can help your new machine run the way you want it to.
Where the built-in and sluggish Windows Add or Remove Programs option fails, Revo picks up the slack. Launching Revo fires up the Uninstaller screen, which shows icons and titles of all programs installed on your machine. You can change the View to List or Details, if you'd like more information. Right-clicking gives users a list of choices, from the fundamentals like Uninstall and Remove from list, to Search Google, Show the installation directory, and quick access to the app's Help file, its About screen, and an Update link.
Revo also provides some powerful tools. Advanced mode adds program-specific Registry key access to the context menu. The Tools Optimizer holds the Autorun Manager, Windows Tools access screen, and a Junk File finder/killer. The Autorun Manager provides one-stop shopping for start-up tweaking. Windows Tools pulls together various and disparate basic utilities under one umbrella, and the Junk killer is just killer. Another cool function is Hunter mode, which offers click-and-drag uninstall and process-killing functionality. Revo and the way that it will revolutionize your uninstall workflow is hard to pass up.Read full review
