Editors' review

With its plethora of system-management features, Advanced Uninstaller Pro makes for a good, regular-maintenance utility. The interface offers a few ways to get to each program feature, including menu items and expanded feature categories.

The large quantity of system-maintenance features runs from the very useful, such as the Start-menu cleaner and Registry Optimizer, to weaker additions, such as the Font Manager. A Quick Cleaner option runs a number of the cleanup features at once, a nice addition for people who don't want to spend hours on maintenance. The ability to schedule maintenance sessions also is a big plus. The program cleans up after Internet Explorer and Firefox, deleting typed URLs, cookies, cached files, and extensions. It's also especially nice the application can clear tracks from Windows system areas and a large number of third-party apps.

The uninstaller feature only seems to launch a program's native uninstaller feature. It also doesn't demonstrate completely reliable performance, as it left a number of folders and other debris after removing programs. We'd also prefer a longer trial period than 21 days. Advanced Uninstaller Pro won't bring your system to factory-new condition, but it does chip away at the dross slowing your computer.

    "No longer the best uninstaller--for other reasons."

    July 23, 2014   |   By tembuktoo

    Version: Advanced Uninstaller PRO 11.43

    Pros

    Been using with my past two computers and it has always been very dependable and much better than Windows uninstaller.
    It also has a set of other features which have for the most part been very useful.

    Cons

    Installed the 11.43 version two days ago and yesterday I discovered it had also installed a bunch of crapware. I even used this program to uninstall the programs but I haven't had time to check and see if they are gone.

    It doesn't always uninstall all of its own registry entries when updating.

    Summary

    They have taken a very good program and fouled it up with a lot of other programs that probably can't be given away--or as a test for future enhancements. I am now looking at alternatives.
