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.

"Magnificient. Simply perfect."

March 01, 2013  |  By errorcode8008

 |  Version: IObit Uninstaller Portable 2.4.6

Pros

Fast
Easy to use
Complete

Cons

None that I have seen so far

Summary

I am so happy with this tool that I literally created a new CNET user account just so I could give it 5 stars on the CNET review. I have been wrestling with the infamous Ask Toolbar phantom file problem for over 3 days. I had tried everything I could imagine to remove the damned thing. Finally, after exhuasting all other options (I am a little weary of using third party software) I used the IObit Uninstaller on a USB drive and gave it a shot. This program uninstalled the toolbar and everything associated with it in less than 2 minutes and approx. 6 clicks of the mouse. Thanks.

"The most complete uninstaller software"

November 02, 2012  |  By AlanGalds

 |  Version: IObit Uninstaller Portable 2.3

Pros

It provides all the tools to remove and manage softwares and apps. The most important thing>> iObit Uninstaller really delete anything completely, most of the uninstaller softwares around leave pieces of the programs in your system making your hard disk with less available space than before had be installed.

Cons

iObit Uninstaller has no Cons

"10BIT UNINSTALLER=THE BIG FIX FOR ILIVID Malware"

December 07, 2011  |  By andejeo31

 |  Version: IObit Uninstaller Portable 2.0

Pros

THE BEST! After so many attempts at my trying to uninstall that horrible mal/spyware ILIVID, I came across the advice of CNET users who suggested 10BIT UNINSTALLER. I am so thankful for this because ILIVID would not uninstall from my computer and it blocked me from all of my documents and files. It had commandeered my computer, taskbar, etc. I am not very tech savvy but this experience has taught me tremendously. BEWARE OF ILIVID. The solution is 10BIT UNINSTALLER, download it immediately to erase ILIVD'S files, they are insidious. Had almost 1,000 links to this malware. I downloaded 10 bit, and it erased it immediately after I highlighted it for deletion. AWESOME!

Cons

There aren't any cons for 10BIT UNINSTALLER

Summary

Beware of suspicious downloads promising ease, that will eventually put your computer in distress.
