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.

"A very efficient, complete uninstall utillity program."

May 16, 2010  |  By alphaman3

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.87

Pros

Logical, complete; and finds a way to uninstall a program that stubbornly won't leave your Add and Remove program box! I was very surprised! This is one of the few utillity programs that are close to excellent and potentially needed by several users.

Cons

Hardly any, none that were too pressing, but for the average user there must be a warining set for final decision to uninstall any program, even though a user may think that he or she does not really need an application, or utility or program driver.

Summary

A potentially very useful program for those of us who do not have 500 GB of hard disk storage and above (I have 200GB, but I have become careful of what to include). Anyhow, for anybody who needs a lean and operative machine then this utility program is for you! I was very happy to finally uninstall a Windows download program that was used to install graphics programs and computer games, but otherwise could not in any way be uninstalled by using the ordinary Windowee Add and Remove program. My suggeston is to get it, before it is no longer free.

"Performs very clean uninstalls"

May 08, 2010  |  By leo_bfg

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.87

Pros

Very thorough uninstall - degree of cleaning can be altered.
System Restore before each uninstall
Easy to use.
Great extra tools - a startup manager, file shredder, etc.

Cons

Time-consuming for Advanced Uninstall (most thorough) - to be expected.
Advanced Uninstall can be too thorough, deleting useful and shared registry entries and files - use with care.

Summary

Such a huge improvement on Windows Add/Remove Programs by doing a proper job. Very important when you changing security software like McAfee to Kaspersky.

Pros

I like the efficiency of the Revo Uninstaller, it really cleans out everything and does it quickly and reliably. Great product.

Cons

It could be a little more explanatory about what it recommends to do along the way.

Summary

Revo Uninstaller is quick and comprehensive when uninstalling software. the fact that it shows you and gives you a choice in what to clean-up in the registry is a big plus.
