Editors' review

Advanced Uninstaller Pro has been protecting the files of Windows PC users for more than 15 years. This powerful free tool provides a range of options for permanently deleting sensitive files, cleaning your Registry, optimizing and backing up your Registry and Windows core files, and removing unwanted software from your machine. When a program just refuses to leave, this is the software to get rid of it.

Pros

A plethora of free tools: Advanced Uninstaller Pro has dozens of powerful tools that you can use for free with your personal license. The General Tools menu features Startup and Services Manager support, a Monitored Installation menu, and a more robust Uninstall Programs menu. These all go deeper than standard Windows menus to ensure your files are gone when you want them gone. In addition, powerful support tools for Registry backup and file deletion are included alongside a centralized Internet browser cleaning tool.

Fast and responsive: The interface for Advanced Uninstaller Pro is fast and responsive, allowing you to wipe away dozens of files with the click of a button. Modeled after the newer Windows 8 style tile layout, everything is easy to find, and while there are a lot of options to dig through here, they are all clearly defined with easy-to-follow instructions.

Cons

No clear setup tutorial: While the tools are all clearly labeled, and there are many of them to choose from, Advanced Uninstaller Pro doesn't offer a guide or walk-through to show you the most powerful options in this suite. This is a small quibble when there are so many powerful tools to choose from, and generally the interface is very intuitive; but for new users it could take some time to acclimate.

Bottom Line

If you need a robust PC cleaning tool for your machine, Advanced Uninstaller Pro is a must download. This free tool contains numerous tools that others charge for, uses minimal resources on your machine, and doesn't overwhelm you with ads or pop-ups, making it a perfect download if your PC needs a tuneup.

    "Malware detected in 11.47"

    August 21, 2014   |   By Terry J. White

    Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.47

    Pros

    It appears to find and remove all files left behind from programs I have tried to unistall in the past and present.

    Cons

    I loved this until the upgrade to 11.47 in which malware was added. If a company is going to do this at least tell us so we know and then can either proceed or stop the download! Just don't try to slip it in on us! Chrome blocked it. It may be harmless, but at least I should be the one to make the decision if I want it. Not cool!

    Also, I did not find it easy to use without any directions so I just c licked on this and that hoping I was doing it correctly.

    Summary

    When you are making your product avail for free, it does not mean that you can make a substandard product. Malware needs to be told.....not found! Also needs to have directions in order to utilize all the many aspects this program offers for us to utilize.

    "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.
