Pros

Cleaner interface: IObit Uninstaller 5 improves upon version 4 with a sidebar showing you a variety of things you can remove, for easier navigation and understanding of the app's capabilities.

Integrated Restore Point option: The app offers to create a Restore Point before you uninstall any program, which helps to teach good practices and makes it easier to undo a mistake.

Batch uninstallation: You can queue up multiple programs to be removed at once, so you don't have to babysit the process.

Centralized tools: Although Windows already possesses most of the tools in IObit Uninstaller 5, it's helpful to have them all under one roof.

Cons

Needs more rating info: IObit Uninstaller 5 ranks browser add-ons and plug-ins according to user ratings, which is helpful. However, it doesn't mention the number of ratings, how many people have assigned each rating between 0 and 5, or how recently the plug-in or add-on was rated.

No file shredding options: The app has an integrated file shredder, but it doesn't tell you what method it uses, nor can you adjust it.

Inconsistent technical level: It's not clear who the program is aimed for, as it's basic in some places while also showing you some things that could mess up Windows if you don't know how to use them correctly.

Bottom Line

IObit Uninstaller 5 is more or less a front end for a number of built-in Windows utilities. We couldn't argue in favor of buying it, but since it's free, it can be a helpful troubleshooting tool -- as long as you know what you're getting into when you start using things like the Windows Registry editor or the Services tool.

"A Fox in Sheep's Clothing"

September 21, 2016  |  By mAStaDon-99

2016-09-21 20:52:52  |  By mAStaDon-99

 |  Version: IObit Uninstaller 6.0.2.156

Pros

Has a good interface and for the most part does what it says.

Cons

Privacy, privacy and privacy. Did I mention privacy? :)

Summary

I don't know how using a application on my computer can just flat give me the creeps. But most of ioBit's software, including IObit Uninstaller does just that. I assure you I am not the kind of person, who walks around with Foil Hats on because I think aliens are trying to scan my thoughts. :) But after installing several of ioBits titled software on my system, including IObit Uninstaller I just got this feeling that I had made a huge mistake (And that I have NEVER in my life felt like that before). I began trying to understand who ioBit was and what other user reviews about the applications both paid and freeware versions was all about. The very first article I went to was on Malwarebytes.com, Malwarebytes' publicly accusing ioBit of IP theft and copyright infringement. And the bigger picture I took
away from my research through other channels is IP theft from US by foreign companies is a huge problem. After all I was right, I knew it was a mistake to install ioBits tools.

"Works very well."

January 12, 2016  |  By neplusultraomni

2016-01-12 12:40:18  |  By neplusultraomni

 |  Version: IObit Uninstaller 5.2.1.117

Pros

I've only used it a few times, but it seemed to work well when I tried it. I've also tried Wise Uninstaller and Revo uninstaller and they also seem to work well.

Cons

The only drawback to this program is that it does a fair amount of tinkering with your system. My Anti-Virus (AVG) blocked it until I turned it off. For example it embeds itself in the control panel programs and features page. Wise and Revo are much simpler in that way. You might wish to have more than one of these on your system since one program may be better than the other in getting rid of a difficult program.

"Installs unwanted apps when updating."

January 01, 2016

2016-01-01 17:31:00

 |  Version: IObit Uninstaller 5.2.1.117

Pros

Nice user interface.

Cons

Had it for about a month, and made sure that when I installed it, it didn't have a bunch of crap running that would interfere. Well that changed once it updated. Uninstalled the uninstaller...because they want to push their crap I want nothing to do with.

Summary

Not worth the hassle.

"Good but..."

December 18, 2015  |  By HaoleBoyz

2015-12-18 20:23:03  |  By HaoleBoyz

 |  Version: IObit Uninstaller 5.1.0.7

Pros

If your not a gamer its a great application to use. Its pretty easy to install & understand.

Cons

It constantly seams to try to make me install the other applications by the same company, and even installed a few in the background without my knowledge which is why I zapped it. I hate it when something does something on my computer without my permission.

Summary

If not not a gamer, and you don't mind being nagged about their other apps all the time, its worth having. For gamers who have steam profiles some game will kick you with an error message about Valves VAC being blocked. Same with their Windows Menu application, it does the same thing.
