Editors' Review

Sometimes there are instances where the stock uninstaller for Windows just isn't enough: Revo Uninstaller is a deep cleaning uninstallation utility that does more than just remove a program from the surface.

Once you open the program, you'll see a ribbon-like menu with a couple of options. Programs can be listed via icons or in list form with details that include installation dates, file sizes, version number, uninstall strings, and more. To uninstall a program, select one or more installed applications and choose either "Uninstall" or "Quick Uninstall."

The main difference between the two options is that the regular Uninstall mode lets you opt out of removing specific leftover files; but other than that, both are relatively the same. Unlike the built-in Windows Add/Remove function, we found Revo's ability to queue up multiple uninstallations to be really useful. This becomes especially useful when doing some spring cleaning on your PC; the default Windows uninstaller forces users to always return to the Add/Remove menu to manually trigger each individual uninstallation.

As with the free version, Revo Uninstaller Pro does a fantastic job of performing extended scans on your system to remove leftover files. Though there are three scanning mode tiers, we just generally recommend sticking with either Moderate or Advanced; if you're using a deep uninstaller, you might as well get the most out of it. Happy app cleaning!

"OK, but could be vastly improved"

October 29, 2014  |  By mikesellon

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller Pro 3.1.1

Pros

Does a better than average job of uninstalling programs when compared with the program's own uninstaller. It will often delete files and registry entries that the program's uninstaller would leave behind.

Cons

The free edition (and I don't know about the paid version) does not list a number of the programs that I have installed, so you can't use Revo to get rid of them. I've heard it's because they are 64-bit programs, and I've head that it's because they make no changes to the registry. Whatever, you have to use the Windows Add/Remove, or the program's own uninstaller. Also, don't think that Revo gets rid of all the files and registry entries on all programs. It does not! Especially with more complex programs like Windows Mail and Java, it leaves a trash head behind in your registry.

Summary

It's free, and you get what you pay for.

"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.

"This one, you can't do without"

December 18, 2012  |  By noinipo

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller Pro 2.5.9

Pros

One of my absolute favorites. Has got me out of more trouble than I care to remember. Very easy to use. The free version is quite good, but this is better. Besides, with software like this. they deserve to get paid.
Uninstalls practically everything. But be careful you don't uminstall more than you should.

Cons

The advanced mode is not for beginners. Be careful.

Summary

I love it. Why can't all software be like this???

August 27, 2012  |  By salleywe

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller Pro 2.5.8

Pros

It uninstalls cleanly, finds everything. Also, I started uninstalling a file, and it told me what it was for, and if I
still wanted to uninstall. Being a novice at computers, Revo
knew how to speak my language..lol

Cons

can't think of any

Summary

definitely worth installing
