    "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.

    "Finds installations other miss"

    June 29, 2014   |   By My.CNET.User

    Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.39

    Pros

    Compared to Revo Pro, Windows uninstaller, Ccleaner: finds more, scans for leftovers that not all do. Seems to work well. Contains a plethora of extra utilities.

    Cons

    Daily health can be set to run manually. It finds stuff other utilities don't, but there's no detail and no way to selectively delete found items: it's all or nothing.

    Summary

    A useful utility to have in your toolkit, but be cautious with the deletes.

    "Excellent Uninstaller"

    June 06, 2014

    Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.40

    Pros

    The uninstaller gets junk the others don't.

    Cons

    I don't see any cons. That health check thing is annoying - if a lite version of it were free that would be ideal

    Summary

    Get it. It's FREE and it's good

    "CAUTION! - Daily Health Check CANNOT BE DISABLED"

    May 24, 2014   |   By onceafireman

    Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.39

    Pros

    Advanced Uninstaller Pro is a great product and would be highly recommended if it weren't for Daily Health Check (Bloatware) added.
    Would have given it five stars if it weren't for this major flaw.

    Cons

    They force Daily Health Check on you - Like it or not!

    Summary

    Advanced Uninstaller Pro includes a program called Daily Health Check. They are also kind enough to include an option to disable Daily Health Check if that's something you would rather not use. However, the disable feature does not work and Daily Health Check continues to run on startup, even when disabling it using msconfig. As I am typing this message, I received another popup from Daily Health Check advising me of all the problems it wants to fix.
    When Advance Uninstaller Pro first came out, I was one of its biggest advocates. However, since Innovative Solutions seem unable or unwilling to resolve this issue with Daily Health Check's auto start-up; I am encouraging you to pull Advanced Uninstaller Pro from your downloads until they resolve this issue.
    They supply no option when installing Advanced Uninstaller Pro to opt out of the install of Daily Health Check and force it upon you, like it or not.

    "This program is the bees knees!!"

    May 24, 2014   |   By JAVA4THEMORNING

    Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.39

    Pros

    User-friendly and does everything with one click of the mouse!

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons, except it isn't free. :-)

    "Good uninstaller, but Health Check causes crashes."

    May 14, 2014   |   By 19Peter71

    Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.38

    Pros

    The uninstaller application itself does everything I expect an uninstaller to do, and does it very well.

    Cons

    The Daily Health Check trial app currently packaged with the uninstaller causes Windows Explorer to crash repeatedly, thus rendering my computer virtually unusable. If Innovative Solutions would remove this app from the total package or fix this fatal flaw, then maybe I could see using their Advanced Uninstaller.

    "Best Uninstaller I used - Better than Windows"

    April 25, 2014   |   By daris3

    Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.37

    Pros

    1.Successfully uninstalls programs that Windows won't or can't even find.
    2. Cleans all remnants left behind after uninstall.
    3. Startup Manager is superior to Windows.
    4. Fast and easy install.
    5. Updated often.

    Cons

    1. Updated often - Updates seem to come weekly or even daily. This is only a CON because of the repeated updates. But to know that the programmers are tweaking it non-stop is a definite plus.
    2. The registry cleaner is not as thorough as others like Eusing Reg Cleaner.

    Summary

    This is my go-to choice for all program uninstalls. It has always worked, which is more than I can say for Windows uninstaller.

    "It's the company not the product that I object o"

    April 21, 2014   |   By achitea

    Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.36

    Pros

    Clean easy interface. More features than uninstall.. a very handy utility, well buitlt by the same company that does Drivermax

    Cons

    Obtrusive. Did not completely uninstall Drivermax, one of their own products. They will alsoinstall programs thatrun unexpectedly and force you to scan settig to stop them. Drivermax did the same thing.

    Summary

    I complained to the company that I don't like "sneaky" software installations and will not use their products in future. Too bad as they seem to design them well. I can't stand obtrusive software.

    "They added the irritating "Health Check" feature for $$"

    April 19, 2014   |   By JohnUSA9

    Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.36

    Pros

    It used to be good a uninstaller till version 11.23.

    Cons

    Since version 11.24 this bad company has added a new and very irritating add-on called "Health Check" that forces a user to buy this bad software after the trial period ends.
    Do NOT use this program until this bad company comes to its senses and removes the bad "Health Check" completely.

    Summary

    Do NOT touch this irritating program.
