Advanced Uninstaller Pro

CNET 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.

    "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.

    "Decline Add-ons During Install"

    April 18, 2014  |   By andrewbaggins

    Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.36

    Pros

    Efficient program with a bunch of useful tools.

    Very good interface for the user.

    Cons

    Offers to install 2 add-on programs/advertising services during the installation of the main program. One is a sort of coupon/targeted ad service and the other is a watch-TV-for-free service. Be sure to click the gray "DECLINE" button for these add-ons unless you're sure you want them. After you click on DECLINE for both add-ons then the main program will install normally with no extras.

    The program also does a "Daily Health Check" which is like the well-known CCleaner, and it lists all the temp files/junk files it finds and offers to remove them. This feature should be optional but it seems to run each morning whether i want it to or not. It's not a resource hog so no big deal, but it would be better if this extra feature could be disabled.

    Summary

    A good uninstaller basically similar to the well-known Revo Uninstaller, but this one has a feature included that the free version of Revo does not. It's a kind of active monitoring which keeps track of every change made to your computer when you install a new program. The purpose of this is so that if you decide later to uinstall that program, Advanced Uninstaller can make sure your system returns to EXACTLY how it was before that program was installed.
