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.

"I LOVE this product!"

February 16, 2016  |  By mcgeeters

 |  Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.69

Pros

Very easy to use. Excellent interface. The trial of the Daily Health Check is superior but there is no check mark to either discontinue its use or buy it on C-Nets download page. The Uninstaller is free and far and away better than anything from IOBit.

Cons

None really, except that the Duplicate file module may freeze on big systems.

Summary

Best Uninstaller ever. It cleans even the hardest programs to get rid of and restores your registry to fast and normal. It will even find duplicates and safely remove them. Very easy to use for even the novice. The trial Daily Health Check is also well worth the test but C-Net seems to have stripped the link to the site where you can activate the product. Not the publishers fault, I'm sure. Both programs are superior to anything coming from IOBit. Get it.

"This is an amazing uninstaller!! 5-star worthy!!"

 |  Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.69

Pros

I had previously downloaded iObit Uninstaller which is a decent program & didn't know it right away but soon discovered that it had also downloaded Advanced Systemcare w/o my permission. That in itself prompted me to uninstall both programs. I used CCleaner for that & did a post search to find out that iObit had embedded itself pretty well into my computer. I got rid as much of it as I could but there were 2 files I couldn't get rid of. Went to CNET & read a lot of reviews for free uninstallers for my system that would attack these 2 files that didn't want to budge. I decided that Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11 was for me & so I downloaded it. At 1st it seemed to have trouble uninstalling them but it has a wide array of tools to help me. Being new to it I had to navigate around a little bit & found the "File Shredder" It got rid of them but it told me there some leftover files it couldn't delete but that it would use a special program to try again on restart which worked!!

Cons

None that I'm aware of.

Summary

User friendly format which makes it easy to learn what all it can do. It will get rid of the most stubborn files. No surprise downloads when you download it. Works well with Windows 10.

"deserves all 5 stars"

 |  Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.69

Pros

I've been dabbling in utilities for over 30 years (since DOS 3.1) and this is the cleanest most uncluttered package I've found. The editors' 5 star rating and review are also important.

Cons

I agree that some setup and utilization tips.

"I have used this program since 2003"

October 23, 2015  |  By JohnD mac

2015-10-23 07:58:16  |  By JohnD mac

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

It does everything it promises inc removing ALL leftovers. I have tried then uninstalled many others & never found a better one. It was originally a paid for program & worth every penny & now it's free:what more could you want? I removed a program with Revo to try it & Advanced Uninstaller popped up to remove leftovers - how good is that?

Cons

The only thing I don't like is the Daily Health Check but I can live with it. Everything else does exactly what it says on the tin!

Summary

It is a clever intuitive program which works extremely well in every part.
Highly recommended.

"Good, but not perfect uninstaller"

July 31, 2015  |  By karezza1966

2015-07-31 14:15:08  |  By karezza1966

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Easy to use.
Quick and efficient.

Cons

Leaves lots registry keys undeleted.
Infects your computer with Hard Candy adware.

Summary

This is quite a good uninstaller but it doesn't uninstall 100% - it leaves files and registry keys undeleted. It also infects your computer with adware.

"Great Piece Of Freeware"

July 04, 2015  |  By ccm1964

2015-07-04 19:46:56  |  By ccm1964

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Does what it says.
Great REG cleaner... Use with CAUTION! Always backup your registry using Windows REGEDIT before using any 3rd party cleaner.

Cons

Health Check - But can be turned OFF if you know how.
No hidden processes.
Likes to run in background but can be easily turned OFF too.

Summary

Fantastic freeware. No bloatware, adware or malware. I have never encountered a pop-up or ad for their antivirus. I had to turn off the Health Check and background process but that was it. Every module works perfectly. I honestly can't say more about it.

"11.60 has an automatic scan on s/w removal"

March 22, 2015  |  By ispalten

2015-03-22 07:51:56  |  By ispalten

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

None that I can see.

Cons

Latest version starts an automatic scan after an uninstall it seems. Firefox 36.0.3 was updated to 36.0.4 and the result of the scan shows all of 36.0.4 it wants to take out!!! How do I stop this scan?

Summary

The 'removal' scan should not be used (accept what it finds) unless you are removing something. Updating and the scan will take out what you just updated. BIG BUG. Otherwise just use the program as before.
