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.

"It does what it says but it does it really slooooow..."

June 10, 2010  |  By typicalhero

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.88

Pros

Its great, it does an awesome job of cleaning out the programs and it digs really deep. Just be careful when you delete the deep scanned items. All in all... this is how a real uninstaller should work.

Cons

It is so freakin slow !!!

Summary

Great product, but could use a streamlined approach. Its frustating how slow it can get. I wonder why other's haven't been complaining about that fact. Well, maybe its just me, so give it a download and a shot, it might be just what you need.

"Useful product, but has its limits"

June 27, 2010  |  By Araha

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.88

Pros

Deletes files that Window's Add/Remove Program feature doesn't

Cons

Some real stubborn files outsmart Revo

Summary

I downloaded a file-sharing program which had its own Uninstall tab. But, smelling a foul play when I tried to uninstall it, it did not. Even Windows Add/Remove could not do the job. Then I turned to deleting the files one by one. Several files refused to leave. Then I downloaded Revo 1.88 which deleted with ease all but one files. It was a major file interfering with the system, and caused the system to crash in the process. Finally, Window's System Restore solved the problem.

"It's very efficient and fast."

June 23, 2010  |  By marcmrd

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.88

Pros

The different ways you can uninstall a program. It also gets rid of the program's built in uninstallation leftovers.

Cons

Some programs could not be uninstalled because the uninstaller could not be found.

Summary

It's fast, very efficient and Free!

"Small, simple & powerful!"

June 22, 2010  |  By nikkilee78

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.88

Pros

Ever since it was shipped from the manufacturer, I have been battling my boyfriend's preinstalled "junkware" on his desktop. I had nearly decided to tap out when I came across Revo Uninstaller!

Cons

My only request would be that during the uninstall all files prompt, there should be a 'save as backup' option, just in case there is an accidental deletion of a neccessary registry key.

Summary

This app is a must have, even for the novice user. It has an extremely easy, can't screw-it-up interface and does the job with just a few prompts from the user. Did I mention that it's also relatively tiny for an app with that much 'Zap?' LOL Overall, a fabulous find for not only myself but anyone who chooses to test it out. Performance and stability are great, without being close to a memory hog so your pc will keep running without a hitch.

"Did what it is supposed to do"

June 22, 2010  |  By bobdtrucker

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.88

Pros

I like that it searches for remnants of the program you want gone. I really get tired of searching all over for pieces of this or that. I have not used everything it has to offer but what I have used worked, and it worked right.

Cons

There is not a thing I dislike about my Revo.
