Editors' Review

Uninstalling programs is one job we usually prefer to give to a third-party tool that improves on the built-in Windows feature found on the Control Panel. To make the cut, an uninstaller needs a few essentials, starting with the power to list all programs by installation date. You'd be surprised how many would-be contenders omit this simple but crucial capability, but more than once we've found programs we'd forgotten to remove by sorting the list by date -- and even some that other apps had snuck onto our system, like toolbars we thought we'd declined.

The ability to force uninstallation is also important, since few software glitches are as annoying as a program that won't uninstall itself. Last but not least, a good uninstaller not only removes a program but also its registry entries, and it scans your system for leftover files and folders. IObit Uninstaller Portable does all that and is portable, which makes it a great choice for people who serve as "tech support" for friends and family.

IObit Uninstaller's interface features white lettering on a black background, a main list view displaying installed programs, and a large green uninstall button. We could rotate the list by name, size, and install date, or click sidebar controls to display Recently Installed software, Large Programs, or Windows Updates. A Batch Uninstall option and Search Software field complete the interface, though the More menu accesses the Forced Uninstall tool, the Log Management feature, and System Restore points. Technical support is available, too. We selected a recently installed program we didn't want to keep and pressed Uninstall. IObit Uninstaller offers two modes, a Standard mode and an Advanced mode that includes creating a System Restore point. IObit Uninstaller quickly removed the target program and moved on to the optional Powerful Scan stage, which identified several leftovers that we could remove singly or all at once. The Large Programs option displayed our system's largest apps, giving us the option to target little-used bloatware for termination.

We've had good luck with IObit's free system utilities, and IObit Uninstaller Portable maintains the reputation. We recommend it without reservation.

"Very Thorough"

Pros

Efficient and reliable
Does a good job of removing registry entries and files which the app's uninstaller leaves behind.
Has some nice additional features, such as search, export app list etc.
The killer feature - batch uninstall!

Cons

Attempts to install Advanced System Care. You need to remove the well-hidden tick mark on the first screen of the installer

Summary

This is a the best all-round uninstaller I know, and I've tried many. As an IT professional, I often need to remove a number of applications in one go, and this application makes the job as easy as possible. It also does a good job of cleaning up after the ordinary uninstalltion. The one bugbear is that IOBit try to sneak in another application - Advanced System Care - both at installation and at update time, so you need to be very careful to find the option (usually hidden at the bottom with the small print) and untick it.
