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.

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.
