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.

"Just excellent, and free, it is a must!"

September 22, 2013  |  By orlando6969

 |  Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.20

Pros

Cleans all the leftovers, very reliable. Appreciate that gives for each software, if you click, a net search for users' opinions, and further advice.

Cons

I could use a column adding the size of the software. It might be helpful in "what to uninstall" decisions.

Summary

Definitely one of the best uninstallers!

"Did a great job cleaning house"

September 21, 2013  |  By DaDreamWizard

 |  Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.20

Pros

Did a superior job removing commercial AV applications you don't ask for on nb's, and that's without tracking the applications install. There's few tougher tests. Those whom are familiar with the big company "N" know exactly what I'm talking about and how it mucks up a registry obscenely.

Cons

Should at least ask if you want to make a restore point. But have yet to find that it deleted any wrong registry keys - so it's still 5 for 5.

Summary

Nice interface, easy to use if unfamiliar with apps of this type. You don't have to choose from different levels of deep scanning. It just does deep scans and has so far got it right on applications it did not monitor when installing. If it monitors an apps install it can only get better to find unrelated entries that an applicationmay (or not) put in.

"Works for Me"

August 28, 2013  |  By swallow_this

 |  Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.20

Pros

For the purpose I use it, uninstalling programs, it works beautifully and cleans out all the crap leftovers the standard uninstall process leaves behind. You really can't ask for more.

Cons

The only complaint I have is that I have to go through two menus to get to the uninstall process. While touted as an uninstaller, when run, it presents itself as more of a swiss army knife.

"A program that no one should do without."

August 25, 2013  |  By The Masked Villain

 |  Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.20

Pros

As apposed to other Uninstaller programs on the market, Advanced Uninstaller Pro, is completely free. That alone should motivate you to get it. However, there's more, Advanced Uninstaller Pro not only uninstalls the target program it's self, but all the little fiddly bits that are left over on the hard drive, and in the registry.

Cons

There are some programs that were installed on my system before Advanced Uninstaller Pro, that it couldn't see.

Summary

It is an excellent free program, that does what it says, and is continually updated to make it better. It's my go-to program when I want to uninstall something completely.

"Bad advertising, freezes Windows 8"

August 11, 2013  |  By 7022jdavid

 |  Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.20

Pros

Works with my Windows XP and 7 systems fine.

Cons

Freezes windows 8 but claims to work with the OS. ******** to say the least. Waste of time until they get it right. Why make a program and not test it correctly?

Summary

Get GEEK UNINSTALLER which basically does the same thing for Window 8

"Easy to use and very complete."

August 04, 2013  |  By GCG1000

 |  Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.20

Pros

1. Handles practically all uninstalls with ease, including registry cleanup and deletion of lingering files and folders.

2. Excellent, easy to use, GUI for uninstalls and other AUP utility functions.

Nice feature: AUP shows recent installs in a separate section of its uninstaller window.

Cons

Wish AUP included a HDD defragger.

Summary

A very complete utility & maintenance package and AUP is FREE!

"ONLY ONE THAT REALLY WORKS!"

July 26, 2013  |  By mapram1

 |  Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.20

Pros

I've tried so many uninstallers that either didn't work or they wanted to be purchased. So glad I found this program. Now I know that when I install something and I'm not happy with it, all I have to do is call up Advanced Uninstaller Pro. It has removed so much junk from my pc. Best one around as far as I'm concerned.

Cons

The only program it didn't/couldn't uninstall is PC Cleaner. When trying to uninstall this program, it pops up with a phone number to call. I haven't called yet but I'm getting so disgusted that I probably will - just to see what spiel they plan to spin.

Summary

I highly and wholeheartedly recommend Advanced Uninstaller Pro.

Updated on Jul 26, 2013

Forgot To Mention.....An additional bonus to Advanced Uninstaller Pro is that after it uninstalls a program, it scans the registry and hard drive for program leftovers and gives you the option to remove them.

Great Program!

"A staple in the home user toolchest"

July 24, 2013  |  By merglerr

 |  Version: Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11.20

Pros

Straightforward user interface, highly effective at not only removing unwanted software but also prompts to allow removal of registry residue. Have used it dozens of times to clean up after doing trial installs of free and purchased software.

Cons

Haven't found any yet.

Summary

Highly functional and the price can't be beat.
