Editors' review

Final Uninstaller finds extra programs and Registry entries left on your PC even after uninstalling a program. While it got off to a great start, a trial limitation prevented us from seeing it to the end.

The program has a very easy to use interface. Its step-by-step instructions ensure you're on the right track. Simply click the Scan button and immediately, the program locates installed programs and any remnants left behind from previously uninstalling apps. The Settings menu includes display, scan, update, and start-up options. We were impressed by all of the remnants the program found on our computer. Check boxes allow you to pick and choose the files you want to remove, or you can click the Select All button to take care of them in one fell swoop. Unfortunately, the program has a trial restriction that prevents you from actually removing any of the selected files. When we clicked the Clean button, we were told that we had to register, and therefore pay, before we could go any further.

Help is available in the form of FAQs on the publisher's site, but there isn't much there. We liked the program's quick and accurate scanning capabilities, but we can't vouch for its ability to remove the problems it finds. If you're willing to take a chance, this program is easy enough for any user to operate.

    "Good program"

    May 27, 2011   |   By whodo36

    Version: Final Uninstaller 2.6.9

    Pros

    Finds remnants

    Cons

    I think it removes some shared elements which means a reinstall of "other" prgms.

    Summary

    Use with caution

    "The best one"

    March 11, 2011   |   By chingonkid

    Version: Final Uninstaller 2.6.8

    Pros

    Cleans every remnant of stubborn hard to remove software like norton antivirus, removes hidden keys in register left by trial software. Good technical support.

    Cons

    Only three free removes on trial

    Summary

    I tried most uninstallers and this one is the one that makes the grade for me enough to buy it

    "Misleading"

    February 11, 2011   |   By Webdragon220

    Version: Final Uninstaller 2.6.8

    Pros

    Does pull up pieces or scraps of left over uninstalled programs.

    Cons

    Only allows you to remove 3. That is lame. How can I possibly experience the full capacity of a program if the limits are set that low. What a waste of download time. Very misleading.

    Summary

    Don't download this program! A waste of time.

    "Didn't work."

    March 28, 2010   |   By gfskaren

    Version: Final Uninstaller 2.6.1

    Pros

    Easy to use.

    Cons

    It didn't work as expected.

    Summary

    Downloaded the trial so that I could uninstall BitComet. It found numerous remnents of old deleted programs but would only allow me to delete 3 as a trial. Tried to delete 2. BitComet is still listed under Program Files and is shown as running.

    "FINAL UNINSTALLER BEATS THE REST!!!"

    October 23, 2009   |   By beatumop

    Version: Final Uninstaller 2.5.4

    Pros

    I have used Total, Perfect, Your, Revo, and Final, but Final uninstaller does everything they do and uninstalls programs and registry that are invisible to the rest.

    Cons

    None to date

    "Great Uninstall program"

    February 18, 2009   |   By claudiaxl

    Version: Final Uninstaller 2.1.3

    Pros

    Cleans up residue from the registry left by uninstalled programs and trial programs, easy to use and powerful

    Cons

    Detects false positives, reporting them as incompletely uninstalled programs that turn out to be part of installed programs, and when you clean them the existing program stops working and has to be reinstalled.

    Summary

    Great uninstaller, tried several and this one is the easiest one and more thorough cleaner. Most false positives are from older software programs.
