Editors' review

Handy Uninstaller is a free program that lets you manually uninstall and remove programs from your computer. It does its job well, but it doesn't offer anything that your Windows uninstaller doesn't already have.

The program's user interface is very straightforward and colorful. Menu and toolbar commands at the top of the window are easy to understand. The tree menu on the left side of the window lets you drill down by category (Audio, Games, Network) to locate a specific program. Otherwise, you can just scroll through the list of programs to locate an application for removal. Selecting a specific program displays its details in the bottom panel. The uninstall process was quick and effective. We liked that the program also offers a command for simply removing, not uninstalling, programs from the list of installed programs. But after all was said and done, we didn't come across anything else to differentiate this program from our built-in Windows uninstaller.

Help for the program is available by sending an e-mail through the publisher's support page, but the program is so easy to use that we don't think you'll need any extra guidance. If you have issues with your current Windows uninstaller or are just looking for something new to remove programs, this free program will certainly do the job.

    "Great free uninstaller."

    September 17, 2008   |   By Zane77

    Version: Handy Uninstaller 1.0.1

    Pros

    Handy Uninstaller has a basic and easy to use interface. Color grid for the interface can be changed through options. It shows invalid entries in red but invalid entries can be hidden through options.

    This uninstaller will uninstall very stubborn programs like McAfee Security and Norton Internet Security. And does not leave any files or folders of those programs behind.

    Handy Uninstaller will load all installed programs a lot faster than windows add or remove programs will. And this uninstaller shows the name of all installed programs. And the Publisher, size, and frequency of use if avaliable.
