    "worked well for me"

    June 05, 2014   |   By ryearnd

    Version: Revo Uninstaller Pro 3.0.8

    Pros

    did the kind of deep system cleaning that I needed on a older machine. program found stuff that I had long ago forgotten that I had "tried" also got rid of the remnants of old virus/spyware programs that were not removed by the software company's own tools.

    I could not wait to buy this software.

    Cons

    not really a con... but be sure to back up this is a powerful tool

    "Horrible, won't trust C-Net again."

    April 11, 2014   |   By meliel

    Version: Revo Uninstaller Pro 3.0.8

    Pros

    Will get program listings out of Windows 7 Uninstall or Change a Program.

    Cons

    Will wreck your computer. After using the latest iteration of this program (Revo Uninstaller Pro 3.0.8) I am unable to uninstall any previous Windows Update. The list of programs is gone. I am unable to install any Important Windows Update. I am unable to reinstall the software I had used Revo to remove. This program does not remove the temp files that come with an installation, leaving potentially Gigs of garbage on the computer. This program does not work with any installation that requires a reboot, which still accounts for much of the software out there. They do not tell you this up front. Therefore, the fact that CNet recommends this is a disgrace. Revo paid for this service.

    Summary

    My take on this program is it is garbage-ware. It is poorly programed and does more harm than good. I've used uninstallers over the last 20 years, and some worked perfectly. Many did not, and Revo is one of those. There is not one professional tech sight out there that recommends this program. Unfortunately, I forgot that the CNet of yore is long gone, replaced by an organization that essentially sells advertising. You will get a decent review if you pay. Gone are the hard core testers that put a program through the paces. Revo is one of the many East European companies that learned from the old Microsoft model. Program it so it barely works. Give it away for free and charge if you can. Testing is minimal and real debugging will occur as the customers call in and complain. To remain above reproach, give a quick refund rather then have an angrier customer out in the world. Advertise the hell out of the product...After my OS installation was damaged I decided to look up the product on the blogs designed for techs. They do not come up first, thanks to Google and all the other advert based engines. Once on the tech blogs and forums, I did not find too much complimentary reporting on Revo Uninstaller. I found many buyer beware reviews, not for newbies, and the simple stay away warning. I am a developer, with numerous certifications. I will be able to fix my machine without a call to Microsoft. I will forever not trust Revo, CNet or any other group that earns its revenue from reviewing software.
