Editors' review

Revo Uninstaller adds some serious power to uninstalling programs, but not a lot of speed. It certainly runs circles around the default option in Windows. However, it's not the most convenient way to kick programs off of your hard drive. It tucks many of the best features behind a paywall, too.

Revo Uninstaller comes with the free trial, which lacks some of the high-end features of the pro version. Though it can delete some registry errors that usually come with deleting programs, it doesn't remove all of them. To do that, you need to upgrade or use a different program. Upgrading doesn't add any speed to this download, which is something it's sorely missing. It makes you wait until one program is finished to start uninstalling another. It's even more annoying since you have to go through each individual program's built-in uninstall process, too. Choosing programs to uninstall is easy and fast, though, thanks to the program's icon-oriented menu. There are plenty of options to tweak your uninstalls. You can choose from options that include a light uninstall or a deep cleaning that rips all traces of the program off of your hard drive. There's even a really neat "hunting" mode that lets you uninstall programs or kill tasks without fully loading the program.

Revo Uninstaller seems to be a very interesting mix of registry-cleaning and uninstall programs. Luckily, it does both of those actions well enough to earn a passing grade. If you really like the program, you might want to upgrade to the pro version. It's fairly priced and adds some essential features that aren't available in the free version.

    "Premature Review"

    June 14, 2014   |   By doug_valmore

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    Very pretty GUI (lots of nice big icons).
    Opportunity to dig deep to "get it all" is great.
    Unambiguous (Windows Programs and features always says "uninstall/change" - doesn't instill confidence about which it's actually going to do)

    Cons

    Haven't really had much to uninstall yet - (did install one thing I knew I didn't want just to try it out). Seems to work fine, but more experience with it over time will be more definitive...

    Summary

    I enjoy getting useful programs for free, even if it's to nag me to upgrade. So far so good...

    "The best uninstaller"

    June 11, 2014   |   By MightyShah

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    This program uninstalled the crap I was trying to delete without any problems. Control panel and CCleaner didn't help.

    Cons

    A bit hard to figure out at first

    Summary

    The best!!!

    "It's Revo Uninstaller, What More Do You Want?"

    June 02, 2014   |   By C8H10N4O2

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    The free program is great at what it does. Much better than any standard installer/uninstaller package that comes with windows/most programs. This actually gets rid of leftover crap on your computer that the included installer/uninstaller programs miss. If you want added security to make sure any computer changes a newly installed program makes, drop a few bucks to support the PRO version, otherwise, this version will do most of what you'd hope from a program like this.

    Cons

    It doesn't have the full functionality of the pro version, which runs on sale for 50% off regularly, but that's about the worst thing to say about Revo Uninstaller.

    "This is the ONE when all else fails!"

    May 22, 2014   |   By MikeJCanada

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    I've been trying to remove "Video Download Converter" and "Apple Software Update" for 6 months with various other software; Revo did both in 5 minutes! :D

    Cons

    None I've seen....well, except it is only free for 30 days! ;)

    "Wonderful program!"

    May 11, 2014   |   By wolfheartmoon

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    I accidentally installed some adware and other bloatware I didn't want (thanks cnet), and one of them I couldn't uninstall through my normal uninstaller and just couldn't be rid of it, and Revo Uninistaller got rid of it.

    Cons

    None that I've found.

    Summary

    Good program, works better than the windows uninstaller, can get rid of pesky programs that won't be removed.

    "Good but overrated"

    April 02, 2014   |   By danmar37

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    Does a decent job.

    Cons

    See summary.

    Summary

    Does a decent job for amateurs because it leaves a lot of files and registry entries behind. If you want to do the job properly you can better using the Windows uninstaller (or use the targeted application's uninstall tool) along with Search Everything and a good registry manager (I use Registrar Registry Manager). The paid version is better because THAT'S the version that can monitor installations and it does a much better job than the free version. Which makes sense don't you think?

    "EXCELLENT !"

    April 01, 2014   |   By refriedtoad

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    If you have trouble with your cursor freezing, black screens from time to time, and slooww computer ! GET THIS !



    It is free and the one program I feel guilty about not paying them.


    The free, is very, very good and comes with no viruses, mal/spyware etal .

    And.... it installs with no "junk" attached !!!


    To judge which programs may be giving you trouble go to control panel and open it up click Programs ( uninstall ), and see which date each program was installed and by this you can judge which programs need to go. Remove them with REVO as it's much faster and cleaner removal. Keep both the uninstall and REVO open and work back and forth.

    The amount of garbage that comes in with any download is amazing.

    I removed just two programs and removed close to 4000 !!! registry items ...

    I have a Ferrari now... not really ...but you know ... nice !

    Go do these steps and you'll be amazed how fast your computer can be ...No freeze....No black screen, Wow.



    Ciao !

    Cons

    None to mention GREAT PRODUCT

    Summary

    GET IT !

    "This one great software program!"

    March 12, 2014   |   By kentman333

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    This program works like a charm as even if you normally use the uninstall feature that came with a software program that you want to remove, it leaves behind files in the registry. Revo gets ride of those registry files too that can slow down your computer and does it quickly.

    One thing to remember, Revo will run the particular software's program first to remove most files, then the software program will usually instruct you to restart your computer...don't restart it now, choose the restart later option. Revo then takes over and completes the rest of the job and removes the files that were left in the registry and other places that had been missed. When Revo is all done, then restart your computer.

    Cons

    None at all.

    Summary

    I really love this program.
