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.

"Super program"

August 16, 2009  |  By wirkkala

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.80

Pros

A great help in maintaining downloads and start up programs.

Cons

None that I have found.

Summary

I had no idea of how many programs were running at my start up and Revo lets you know all of them and allows you to turn them off & on at will. Now I only have the programs I actually need to run on startup. I can also find out what a program is all about if I don't recognize it. The program uninstall is great since it lets you uninstall all left over bits after initial uninstall. There are numerous helpful features .... try it and play around with it and I'm sure you won't be sorry.
