Review: dUninstaller removes programs incredibly fast, but it's not thorough

Scan your PC and uninstall multiple programs at once using dUninstaller.

dUninstaller performs faster than other uninstall utilities, but it could dig a little deeper when deleting your programs. In our tests, it only turned up a handful of the programs we have on our computer. It's still a good way to start the long process of cleaning up your PC, though.

The program folder contains everything needed to run the portable application, which can also go anywhere with you on a flash drive. Once you load it, it scans your computer and produces a list of programs it can remove. This list won't be expansive, but it will include a few dozen programs, if not more. Most programs are spelled out for you so you know exactly what they are and whether or not you want to keep them. The program goes to work with incredible speed. It took out ten programs in less than a minute and only gave two confirmation screens. That means you do have to babysit it to make sure the uninstall goes well, but not nearly as much as you would with other programs. You can even save logs of what programs you got rid of, but you'll need to upgrade to the premium version of dUninstaller if you want to share them with people through e-mail.

Even though it's not as thorough as other programs, dUninstaller's speed makes it worth the download, for sure. It will completely remove programs from your computer without forcing you to deal with the normal headaches that come with the process. If this application could find all programs on your PC, it'd be a real home run.
