Editors' Review

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.
