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.

"Use it all the Time"

December 27, 2010  |  By wmthweatt

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.90

Pros

Uninstalls all the junk that add/remove doesn't touch. Easy to use.

Cons

None I can see.

Summary

Great program! A definite must have if you download a lot of trial programs.

""Easy to use""

December 27, 2010  |  By kookachue

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.90

Pros

Fast, and easy to use.

Cons

What can I say.... its free!

Summary

I like the fact that this program creates a restore point, and then proceeds to seek-out the dead keys and sub folders left behind by the programs own uninstaller. I use it often and probably always will.

"One of life's essentials!"

December 26, 2010  |  By arafurian

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.90

Pros

It works exactly as claimed. I have used it to remove all sorts of programs, and it has never let me down.

Cons

The confirmation procedures are perhaps overdone: you have to press a button for every stage of an uninstallation, and then click a second button to confirm your choice.

Summary

I find this an essential tool in keeping the hard disk and Registry clean: it gets rid of all manner of rubbish that the built-in uninstaller misses, and makes Registry cleaning much less of a problem. When I am doing a system rebuild, Revo is one of the very first programs to be installed. That way, I can use it to monitor all subsequent installations.

"Roots out unwanted programs"

December 26, 2010  |  By Tec88

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.90

Pros

Roots out unwanted programs, you might wanna have a little bit of program knowledge to use this, but other than that it's user friendly.

Cons

Nothing yet.

Summary

A must have.

"Not a DEEP uninstaller"

December 26, 2010  |  By fatcat

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.90

Pros

Quick and simple interface. A little easier to use than Win7 Add/Remove Programs.

Cons

Basically does the same as what already comes with Win7 and XP. I was disappointed that it couldn't remove programs that Win had only partially removed or was unable to uninstall.

Summary

No benefit for a power user.

"Very Good Easy to Use"

December 26, 2010  |  By Kconnor56

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.90

Pros

Very Thorough. Lets you decide what files to erase.

Cons

At times it takes a little long, but I guess that's because it's being thorough.
I can see where a novice can screw things up by deleting the wrong files.

Summary

I have tried at least 6 uninstallers, & I am just an average user. I found this to be the best by far. It is easy to use. It lets you see what's being deleted. It suggest files that are safe to delete. Even a novice will find this good, as long as they follow directions. On some of the larger programs it will take a while, but that is because it's being thorough. I hate going through a file/folder & finding files to a program I deleted a month ago. This takes care of that. As long as you pay attention to what your doing even a novice will find this program easy to use, & well worth it.

"Absolutely amazing!"

December 25, 2010  |  By bluzgtr

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.90

Pros

I could not believe how much stuff Revo Uninstaller found that WIndows own uninstaller left behind.

Cons

I haven't found any. Sometimes it asks me if I'm sure I want to delete a shared program that nothing else seems to be using, and I don't know the answer for sure, but that's my lack of knowledge, not Revo's.

Summary

You think the designers of an operating system would log all files placed when a program is installed, and then, when the owner wanted to uninstall that program, the OS would run through the log and clear everything. I guess everyone knows by now that Microsoft has failed miserably at this task. But I didn't realize how badly they had failed until I needed to uninstall *******. It is a large program (or perhaps I should say collection of programs), 4 DVDs full. I knew about how much hard drive space it used, and when I ran the Windows uninstaller, I had nowhere near the free space I should have had. Also, other unrelated programs were acting flaky. I thought the System files were corrupted. But I wanted to clean out the remains of *******. So I read some reviews on CNET, and chose to download Revo. Ladies and gentleman, I kid you not. It found over 4,000 files that the Windows uninstaller had left behind. And it's free! Once all that stuff was cleared out, my PC returned to stability.

From now on, Revo will be on all my Windows machines.

"Absolutely The Best"

December 24, 2010  |  By Sheamarie48

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.90

Pros

This is the best uninstaller I've ever had the privilege of using. Talk about thorough! This cleans out every piece of the file.

Cons

None so far.

Summary

Get it! It's much better than Windows 7 Uninstaller and the one that comes with CCleaner.
