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.

    "light-weight but powerful"

    October 12, 2014   |   By skyxj

    Version: IObit Uninstaller 4.0.4.25

    Pros

    I just tried this software and it was working fine. It found almost useless 10 'plug-ins' on both of my PCs - I have no idea what they were, how they got there. I just delete them, and both my PCs are working faster than they have done for a long time.

    Cons

    The UI can be made more delicate.

    Summary

    I have no idea why any of the negative complaints here.

    "easy to use and powerful"

    October 10, 2014   |   By SIM_cnetact

    Version: IObit Uninstaller 4.0.4.25

    Pros

    This is best tool provided by Iobit to me. I like to try various of programs and uninstall them when I lose interest to them. So Iobit uninstaller did help me a lot to make my computer clean. And the Toolbar$plugins uninstall module did help me to get rid of some boresome addons. It really works good on my computer.

    Cons

    Powerful scan can be quicker and I prefer its first version, which doesn't need install at all. But I guess the more features included deserve the install.

    Summary

    works quite good for me. you deserve a try if you need to uninstall a program or a browser addon.
