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 Great Uninstaller"

    September 28, 2014   |   By Darren Dheilly

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    It worked flawlessly - CNET gave me some junk (That I opted out of), Revo uninstalled it. I used it happily and I was not put off by the crawl or the slow
    speed of it... So why 3 Stars ?

    Cons

    It was not free. It started to hide some of those nifty features behind a paywall,
    and wanted my credit card to reopen them. So sad as it was only a trial-ware program. They should say "Trial" before the install. It still worked good but not
    as good as it was (I dislike Nagware).

    Summary

    So if you want to try it - before you buy it (Then as Rocky said ) "Go For It !". I
    got rid of it (that was not easy) and went with another, a good free and a bit
    faster one.

    "Excellent. Amazing"

    September 13, 2014   |   By nn66

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    Very easy to use even for me. Shows you all the folders and sub folders. Removed PChealthboost which i couldnt get rid of. It did it amazingly fast. First review in 10 years thats how good it is

    Cons

    NON only used it once.

    Summary

    Must buy. Also upgrades seem reasonable.

    "Premature Review"

    June 14, 2014   |   By doug_valmore

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    Very pretty GUI (lots of nice big icons).
    Opportunity to dig deep to "get it all" is great.
    Unambiguous (Windows Programs and features always says "uninstall/change" - doesn't instill confidence about which it's actually going to do)

    Cons

    Haven't really had much to uninstall yet - (did install one thing I knew I didn't want just to try it out). Seems to work fine, but more experience with it over time will be more definitive...

    Summary

    I enjoy getting useful programs for free, even if it's to nag me to upgrade. So far so good...

    "The best uninstaller"

    June 11, 2014   |   By MightyShah

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    This program uninstalled the crap I was trying to delete without any problems. Control panel and CCleaner didn't help.

    Cons

    A bit hard to figure out at first

    Summary

    The best!!!

    "It's Revo Uninstaller, What More Do You Want?"

    June 02, 2014   |   By C8H10N4O2

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    The free program is great at what it does. Much better than any standard installer/uninstaller package that comes with windows/most programs. This actually gets rid of leftover crap on your computer that the included installer/uninstaller programs miss. If you want added security to make sure any computer changes a newly installed program makes, drop a few bucks to support the PRO version, otherwise, this version will do most of what you'd hope from a program like this.

    Cons

    It doesn't have the full functionality of the pro version, which runs on sale for 50% off regularly, but that's about the worst thing to say about Revo Uninstaller.

    "This is the ONE when all else fails!"

    May 22, 2014   |   By MikeJCanada

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    I've been trying to remove "Video Download Converter" and "Apple Software Update" for 6 months with various other software; Revo did both in 5 minutes! :D

    Cons

    None I've seen....well, except it is only free for 30 days! ;)

    "Wonderful program!"

    May 11, 2014   |   By wolfheartmoon

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    I accidentally installed some adware and other bloatware I didn't want (thanks cnet), and one of them I couldn't uninstall through my normal uninstaller and just couldn't be rid of it, and Revo Uninistaller got rid of it.

    Cons

    None that I've found.

    Summary

    Good program, works better than the windows uninstaller, can get rid of pesky programs that won't be removed.

    "Good but overrated"

    April 02, 2014   |   By danmar37

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    Does a decent job.

    Cons

    See summary.

    Summary

    Does a decent job for amateurs because it leaves a lot of files and registry entries behind. If you want to do the job properly you can better using the Windows uninstaller (or use the targeted application's uninstall tool) along with Search Everything and a good registry manager (I use Registrar Registry Manager). The paid version is better because THAT'S the version that can monitor installations and it does a much better job than the free version. Which makes sense don't you think?
