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.

"Good program, dont use Download.com's installer"

February 04, 2016  |  By tightdog1

2016-02-04 10:38:16  |  By tightdog1

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

Pros

Revo is good unistaller program, when your regular installers lockup or have issues. Ive use this program many times over the years,

Cons

If you do not use the Direct Download link, make sure you DO NOT USE THE DOWNLOAD.COM INSTALLER, as it comes with bundled spyware/adware installers built into their installer. Decline any of the optional uninstallers Download.com bundled and then the program will actually download the real installer and install.

"Works very well."

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

Pros

I've only used it a few times, but it seemed to work well when I tried it. I've also tried IObit Uninstaller and Revo uninstaller and they also seem to work well. Unlike IObit, it does not do a lot of tinkering with your system. You might wish to have more than one of these on your system since one program may be better than the other in getting rid of a difficult program.

Cons

None at all.

"Very good at what it does do"

January 07, 2016  |  By Dwnldr7

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

Pros

Being 'free' a bonus ( although the free version is no longer easily found on the VS Revo web-site ), this program ( version 1.95 free ) can be set up, to delete unneeded temporary files well.
Its Un-Install function is thorough indeed, removing additional 'left-overs', just as is claimed. It can be used to remove system updates also ( though, exercise care with this function).

Cons

Be CAREFUL not to unwittingly allow '.old' files ( say, from an earlier Windows Installation, pre-upgrade of whatever sort ) be deleted, IF you wish to retain the capability to 'go back' to an earlier Windows Release ( the '.old' checkbox can easily be UN-checked in the settings ( by default it WILL delete these : I have settings to send everything to the Recycle Bin, 'just in case' ). Other than that, the inevitable 'encouragements' to upgrade to the (paid) version ( I own two earlier paid releases, 2011, 2013, neither of which remain licensed now ), the free version is very helpful ( apart from my 'riders' above ). Just look carefully at all the options available before first use.

"Expensive. Only single-computer licence!"

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

Pros

Removes 32-bit apps. So it saves a bit of manual work - especially in the registry.

Cons

Problems removing more sneaky stuff, especially in the 64-bit arena.

couldn't find a con.

"Worked for me!"

May 26, 2015  |  By Rayne Sonner

2015-05-26 12:51:00  |  By Rayne Sonner

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

Pros

I have been meaning to install Revo for ages to clean out some junk on my PC but never got around to it. Well today I really needed it after I couldn't get rid of a program with just my PCs' uninstall application, and it worked just they way I thought it would. No surprises, no whistles and bells, it just got rid of the garbage program. I used the secure download and it didn't add any bundleware as far as I can see (and if it did, I'll use Revo to remove it) and it was super-easy to use.

Cons

It doesn't seem that it can be used to get rid of browsers like the Homepage-Web browser hijacker that sneaked its way on to my PC. I wish it could help get rid of that.

"Not a Fix-All. Won't Work for Everything"

May 13, 2015  |  By S1rst1nky

2015-05-13 20:57:56  |  By S1rst1nky

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

Pros

Easy to use
Tons of features and controls
Straightforward user interface
Free version is just fine
Works for most problems

Cons

Won't uninstall badly corrupted programs

Summary

I got this for the sole purpose of removing a badly corrupted factory image of Microsoft Office 2010. I read all the reviews and thought this would be my savior, but I was wrong. It does work for most things, but it won't identify every piece of software on your system. Office didn't show up in the programs list when I launched it, so I couldn't remove it. I ended up going back to Microsoft Fix It and Ccleaner (which still didn't work). I tried it on some other test programs and it worked fine. Ran the uninstaller then ran it's own set of cleaners to purge the registry of any leftover app or program data.
