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.

"Works as promised"

April 12, 2011  |  By trlamb

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.91

Pros

Appears to remove all remnants of Java.

Cons

No negatives.

Summary

JavaRA works. I had been uninstalling JavaRE using CCleaner before updating. But when I attempted to install the 2011 WiTopia personal VPN, I learned that part of an old installation was hiding somewhere on my desktop, and it would not allow me to install the new VPN. So, I downloaded and ran JavaRA, reinstalled JavaRE, and end of problem! JavaRA had found the offending remnants.

Updated on Apr 12, 2011

Sorry folks ... I wrote about the wrong uninstaller .. JavaRA instead of Revo.

"Could be better if it was a standalone uninstaller"

April 10, 2011  |  By lt-tech

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.91

Pros

Gets rid of leftover subprograms and fragments

Cons

Uses the Windows Uninstaller or program's uninstaller first, before invoking its more powerful 2nd and 3rd stages.

Summary

Would not uninstall Netgear's Smart Wizard when the Smart Wizard Uninstaller did not work. Ditto for one or two other programs with corrupted Uninstall programs.
