Editors' Review

Where the built-in and sluggish Windows Add or Remove Programs option fails, freeware Revo picks up the slack. It builds out a useful feature set on top of a fairly light, 1.5MB installation. Launching Revo fires up the Uninstaller screen, which shows icons and titles of all programs installed on your machine. You can change the View to List or Details, if you'd like more information. Right-clicking gives users a list of choices, from the fundamental like Uninstall and Remove from list, to Search Google, Show the installation directory, and quick access to the app's Help file, its About screen, and an Update link.

Revo also provides some powerful tools. Advanced mode adds program-specific Registry key access to the context menu. The Tools Optimizer holds the Autorun Manager, Windows Tools access screen, and a Junk File finder/killer. The Autorun Manager provides one-stop shopping for startup tweaking. Windows Tools pulls together various and disparate basic utilities under one umbrella, and the Junk killer is just killer.

The Tools Tracks Cleaner accesses cache-cleaning features, include standard browser cache functions as well as crash memory dump files, MS Office cleaners, system-wide and program-specific search histories, and more. Another cool function is the Hunter, which offers click-and-drag uninstall and process-killing functionality. Revo and the way that it will revolutionize your uninstall workflow is hard to pass up.

"Amazing, but mostly reliable"

May 06, 2010  |  By Sue-W

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.71

Pros

I've used Revo on both my desktops, and now that I have a Laptop, knew one of the first things I had to do was get Revo again. I totally rely on it to clear everything when uninstalling any programme. Well done indeed, it's terrific!

Cons

As yet i haven't found anything to dislike about it.

Summary

It is just so easy to use, but the main thing for me is it's reliability.

"Revo Uninstaller works just as it promises"

October 21, 2008  |  By val/Kyrie

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.71

Pros

-Easy to use, -Gives detailed explanation of every function (at the bottom of each page) -Search and Removes leftovers of each uninstalled program that the OS can't. -Tells you when a new update is available to download

Cons

The icon in your desktop looks so common, so windows style. Change it please!

Summary

There's a feature that lets you know what other programs are running when you start Windows. Without Revo Uninstaller you'd need to install another software just to do that!

"Shocking amounts of trash left on your drive"

October 03, 2008  |  By Some_Random_Dude

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.71

Pros

* The main plus: removes massive amounts of trash left on your PC by "uninstalled" programs
* Detected every program I have installed, even some that don't show under "Add/Remove Program"

Cons

* I've encountered none so far.

Summary

If you think the "uninstall" features in programs or the "Add/Remove program" function in Windows are enough, think again. That's what I used to think. I only installed this program after being hassled by someone to do so, so I did it, not knowing what use it could possible have, given that I have the two functions mentioned above. Well, turns out uninstalled programs leave piles and piles of crap on your PC even after you uninstall them: traces and pieces in your registry, "Program Files" and elsewhere. Revo is your friend: it will pick up those pieces of trash and throw them out the window.

Download this program. You will not regret it.

"Great product. I would recommend it to everyone."

October 01, 2008  |  By LFed

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.71

Pros

Everything about this product is easy. It finds files I never could have found myself and which I never realized were left behind after uninstalling with Windows Add/Remove programs, keeping my system free of useless files. I love it.

Cons

There is nothing I do not like about this product.

"Good, Solid Uninstaller"

September 30, 2008  |  By willens

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.71

Pros

It starts with a program's built-in uninstaller, then can scan for entries that refer only to the uninstalled program and let the user selectively remove some or all of themeasily. I have used it extensively with no known problems.

Cons

User interface, especially after running a program's built-in uninstaller, us somewhat uninformative. It's not always clear what to do next. But, once I became familiar with how it works, it became more intuitive.

Summary

A good, solid utility, and the price (free) is right!

"It's definitely working!"

September 27, 2008  |  By yham47

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.71

Pros

I like it's GUI, very user friendly...Easy to follow instructions on uninstalling software.

Cons

Help is not available offline, in case you have no internet access on your PC.

Summary

It's a great utility! I have one software that I want to uninstall that doesn't respond uninstalling in Add/Remove Programs for months now. I even discussed it in a forum but it seems nothing responded. When I run it, bingo, it all gone in a couple of clicks without leaving any trace of the software on my PC!
