Editors' Review

+

A major improvement over Windows' built-in uninstaller, free IObit Uninstaller not only removes programs, one by one or in batches, but also finds and deletes leftover folders and files. It identifies large and infrequently used programs, Windows updates, and other items for removal and ranks them by date installed, version, and other headings. The user interface toggles between the detailed List and streamlined Icon views. IObit Uninstaller Version 4 adds support for Windows 8 Metro Apps and targets malicious plug-ins.

Pros

Leftover scan: IObit Uninstaller's optional Powerful Scan scours your system for the leftovers that other uninstallers leave behind. The Automatic Powerful Scanning and Also Shred Files checkboxes automate those options.

Toolbars and plug-ins: Similar to the Programs tab, IObit Uninstaller's Toolbars & Plugins tab displays all toolbars and plug-ins -- or just those in Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer -- and uninstalls any you select for removal.

Forced uninstall: Run Forced Uninstall to forcibly evict software that can't be uninstalled by conventional means.

Cons

Settings and extras: IObit Uninstaller's settings are few but useful, including languages, notifications, and shred options. Still, similar programs like Advanced Uninstaller Pro offer more settings and options and bundle extra tools like system cleaners.

Bottom Line

To many Windows users an uninstaller with a leftover scanner is essential. Some similar programs bundle more extras, but none outperforms IObit Uninstaller at its primary job: removing programs and their leftovers.

"Best free uninstaller... better than Revo Free..."

October 29, 2014  |  By melen001

 |  Version: IObit Uninstaller 4.0.4.30

Pros

Can uninstall everything even 64 bit software, Revo Free dosen't support 64 bit software unless you get the paid version. Manage Wins Restore Points, uninstall Wins Updates, will create a Restore Point before uninstalling, it will scan for leftover files and delete them, you can see All Installed Programs, Recently Installed, Large Programs, Infrequently Used and Wins Updates at a simple click. You have Force Uninstall option for difficult to remove programs, File Shredder and Log Management plus a Powerful Scan feature and a Batch Uninstall option. It also has a Real Time Monitor so when uninstalling it will delete all leftover files. You can also see all your browser Plug-in's and Tool-bars and manage them at will. It has worked perfectly for the nearly 3 years for me. It has a very nice GUI and it's FREE.....

Cons

None that I have encountered.

Summary

I have used Revo, Geek Uninstaller and Iobit is by far the best. I would rate Iobit number 1 with Geek and Revo right behind it. I have to give it a 5 star rating. It's just flawless and Iobit makes it FREE......
