Review: IOBit Uninstaller 3

Completely remove multiple programs in batches.

Pros

Useful organization: Uninstaller categorizes your installed apps into several tiers: Recently installed, Large programs, Infrequently used, and Windows Updates. These are often the main criteria that most users would follow to justify removing apps.

Batch uninstallation: You can queue up uninstallations for multiple applications, something glaringly absent from the traditional Windows control panel. Though it's not an automated procedure, nor is it a simultaneous uninstaller, the Batch Uninstaller works as listed and is one of the most useful features of IOBit Uninstaller 3.

Cons

Not in real time: If IOBit Uninstaller is currently running and you install a new program, the Programs list will not refresh. This requires you to restart the program for the most up-to-date list of applications.

Final Verdict:

IOBit Uninstaller 3 is a lightweight uninstaller with some useful tools that give it an edge over the default Windows uninstaller. Batch uninstallation and its remnant removal tools are probably the application's biggest advantage, but overall we found this program to be most useful for those who have high volumes of applications and programs installed. We recommend this app if your computer is in need of a slimming down or if you're planning to do some fall freshening of your Windows machine.
