Featured Freeware: ZSoft Uninstaller

ZSoft Uninstaller should appeal to users who want something better than the native Windows installer, but don't need all the extraneous features of similar programs.

Although we love freeware Revo Uninstaller here at CNET Download.com, ZSoft Uninstaller should appeal to users who want something better than the native Windows installer, but don't need all the extraneous features. As the developer promises, ZSoft Uninstaller is indeed far superior to the native Windows program uninstaller. The freeware first runs the unwanted program's original uninstall option before cleaning up with its own technology. But for a more thorough uninstall, ZSoft Uninstaller offers an analyze function that you can use during the initial installation of programs to track exactly which files are being added to your system.

Later, when you want to uninstall a program, you can click the Analyzed Programs tab and rest assured that when you uninstall the program every associated file will be included. The search box for finding specific programs and the capability to get rid of temporary files are useful additions.

ZSoft Uninstaller works well, although it's not as robust as Revo. Even though it may not have all the chrome of the competition, when it comes to getting its core task done--uninstalling unwanted applications--ZSoft Uninstaller is a good choice.
