Editors' review

Revo Uninstaller Portable can run without installation from a portable drive. First it runs a program's built-in uninstaller and then scans for and removes leftover files and folders, Registry entries, and shortcuts. It automatically creates System Restore Points and even removes programs whose uninstallers won't run.

Pros

Views: You can toggle between the default view's field of program icons and several other layouts. Our favorite displays useful details under draggable headers like Installation Date, Size, and Company.

Scan levels: Revo uninstalls programs in four modes: Built-in uses the program's own uninstaller; Safe is the mildest but fastest scan option; Moderate scans where leftovers are likely to be found; while Advanced mode is the slowest but most thorough method. A reboot may be needed to remove all files.

Hunter Mode: Revo's Hunter Mode replaces the standard window with a blue crosshairs widget that you can drag onto program icons to target them for instant removal.

Tools: Extras include an Autorun Manager, Junk Files Cleaner, and Windows Tools.

Cons

Shared files: Review scan results, especially in Advanced mode, and uncheck any shared or necessary files you don't want Revo to remove.

Portable: While portability is the whole point behind Revo Uninstaller Portable, the fully installed version is a better choice for everyday Windows cleaning. Fortunately, you can have both.

Bottom Line

Revo Uninstaller Portable adds a versatile dimension to a powerful free utility. It has a place in any portable PC toolkit.
