Editors' Review

+

A good standalone uninstallation application can remove traces of programs that other uninstallers leave behind, and that includes the built-in Windows feature. Advanced Uninstaller Pro is a free tool that not only removes all detectable traces of the programs you uninstall but also automatically cleans traces from the Registry. Its unique installation-monitoring feature automatically or manually tracks what happens to your system when you install or uninstall programs. It not only ensures that all traces of installed programs are removed but also helps diagnose installation problems. Advanced Uninstaller Pro also packs a wide range of system maintenance tools and tweaks.

Advanced Uninstaller Pro's interface has a unique look but familiar functionality, with large buttons on a space-themed background. The program's features are categorized by function, such as General Tools, Registry Tools, and Internet Browser Tools. Some tools show up in more than one heading, such as the Windows Services tool. The main tool, the uninstaller, lists programs alphabetically and by version (32-bit or 64-bit) but not by installation date, version, location, and other headings we're used to seeing in an uninstaller. That's our only complaint, though, since this tool was quick and thorough in its actions. We especially like the built-in Registry scanner and cleaner, which can remove traces of uninstalled programs immediately. We could specify which entries to clean or exclude. We enabled the Installation Monitor Feature and selected automatic monitoring, but we could also track installations manually from Advanced Uninstaller's system tray icon. The feature records exactly what installing a program does to your file system and Registry, and displays it in a log view. Advanced Uninstaller Pro has a full raft of extras, such as a Cookie Manager, Duplicate File tool, Registry Cleaner and Optimizer, Startup Manager, Fonts tools, and much more.

Advanced Uninstaller Pro brings some unique and useful improvements to a simple process that all too often comes up short. You can't depend on Windows to remove all traces of uninstalled programs, but this free toolkit can do the job as well as any tool we've tried. Adding installation date would make it ideal.

"Works somewhat better than the rest"

August 15, 2012  |  By jazzymountaingal

 |  Version: Advanced Uninstaller PRO 11.13

Pros

A good uninstaller with an efficient set of tools. Pretty safe even for the novice.

Cons

Be sure to un-tick the install of of AVG if you do not need the antivrus toolbar/addon.

Summary

After using several other un-installers I am happiest with this one. Some uninstallers added the very thing I wanted to get rid of -freeware/malware. Though you won't use this tool often - know that when you do - it makes quick thorough work of it.

"Awesome and its FREE!"

March 02, 2013  |  By Hanky_Spanky

 |  Version: Advanced Uninstaller PRO 11.13

Pros

I have a Vista PC that is five years old. I always used windows uninstall and used Glary Utilities (free version) for maintenance. When I tried A U PRO's utilities it found about 500 Mbs of junk.

Cons

None. Works great.

"Don't uninstall without it!"

September 20, 2012  |  By Choderus

 |  Version: Advanced Uninstaller PRO 11.13

Pros

Gets folders & files left behind by uninstallers. Registry operations, startup options, duplicate file remover, and more. You just can't beat this for the price - FREE!

Cons

Nothing so far, it has done what I need.

Summary

I don't understand why people are giving this lower reviews because they say they are FORCED to accept AVG programs when installing. I just installed this on my new system (from the company website as I ALWAYS do, not through here), chose the custom installation, and unchecked the AVG options. I opened up all my browsers and searched my computer--no traces of anything AVG on my computer.

"Much improved product from earlier versions"

September 15, 2012  |  By bobstokes

 |  Version: Advanced Uninstaller PRO 11.13

Pros

This version's ablility to remove associated registry entries and files when uninstalling an application is the #1 improvement.
Anyone who installs and uninstalls a lot of applications can appreciate this. It reduces the build-up of clutter within the registry and your file system and prevents the system from slowing in normal usage.

Cons

The application's new interface is a bit cheeky, but what the heck, it works as it should.

Summary

I purchased this product many versions ago and have been using it ever since. Or, until this version came out. Innovated Solutions appears to be listening to the needs of application users.

"Good gone bad"

September 10, 2012  |  By So101

 |  Version: Advanced Uninstaller PRO 11.13

Pros

It uninstalls well as it's supposed to do

Cons

Installation now requires you to install an AVG toolbar with no opt out. During Installation my malware program flagged and blocked 2 files from the AVG toolbar so as it stands i don't trust the publisher of A.U. Pro anymore and will find an alternative that i wont name so people know this review is genuine.

Summary

Forced installs of other programs toolbars etc is a deal killer for me. i'd rather have paid a small amount than be force fed something i have no time or use for. especially with a malware risk

"Removes stuff others cannot reach."

September 02, 2012  |  By stevesx

 |  Version: Advanced Uninstaller PRO 11.13

Pros

OK, I only tried removing one item so far (Bonjour). Tried deleting folder, normal WIN7 uninstall, and Revo without success. Perhaps there is a way of removing it with the free version of Revo but it wasn't obvious to me. Using this program however, it was a straightforward click-and-gone process.

Cons

There may be some cons but for what I needed it to do so far there are none.

Summary

Looks like a must-have utility.

"Did what I needed and more!"

August 24, 2012  |  By notchuck

 |  Version: Advanced Uninstaller PRO 11.13

Pros

- wiped out everything that made Symantec Antivirus run (several failed uninstalls) - what it did was actually make the uninstaller run (if you're familiar with the program, the uninstaller often breaks)

- cleaned out some browser bars the user of the computer had installed

- clean, usable interface, with information that would help users understand what features are for

Cons

- left parts of Symantec Antivirus (in C:/Program Files/Common Files and C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data) but to its credit, none of those files would make the program run.

- some parts opened in the same window, and others in a new window. It was confusing to determine which tools required the window to be closed and which required the use of a back button.

Summary

Definitely worth my time to use it.
