Revo Uninstaller

CNET 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.

    "Best Uninstaller Program"

    August 4, 2011  |   By steelee24

    "Easy to use, thorough in it's job"

    August 2, 2011  |   By Larissa

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.92

    Pros

    Good interface, looks much like the add/remove programs utility that people are used to using. It finds files and registry keys still littered on your harddrive after the normal uninstall process has run. Perfect for those corrupted installs.

    Cons

    They make it really easy to accidentally delete registry keys you don't want to delete.

    Summary

    Solid program, I will never go back to using the built in Windows utility again.

    "Easy to use!"

    July 24, 2011  |   By zapoteca

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.92

    Pros

    Got rid of a parasite program that masqueraded as something else. Microsoft built-in uninstaller did not work. REVO DID!

    Cons

    No cons - easy to download, and was effective in removing a stealth download that hijacked my toolbars as well as reconfigured my default home page. It removed a very annoying program.

    Summary

    Thank you for your good work. Got any privacy and anonymizing products?

    "Works great and very reliable and safe...trust me."

    July 24, 2011  |   By supergemini

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.92

    Pros

    Easy to use and works like a charm. I've tried others but it seems that they just give me some problems in one way or another but not with Revo Uninstaller. I've tried Pro but this free version gives me what I wanted. Used this for about a yr now.

    Cons

    Sometimes very slow in uninstalling and scanning registry left overs. But you have to be patient especially if those programs are big coz there are some of them that installs many things in different areas that it makes Revo to scans thoroughly.

    Summary

    If you're looking for a reliable, safe and worthy uninstaller then this is the one you're looking for. The big plus is there is an added tools along with it. Utility tools useful for the pc.

    "Excellent Free Software Removal Program !!!"

    July 20, 2011  |   By sherbisness

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.92

    Pros

    Revo Uninstaller works much better than Microsoft Windows add/remove program. Works perfectly with windows XP, I have no experience with windows Vista, 7, or 64 bit programs, so I wont comment on them.

    Cons

    Not really a con. New users should start in SAFE mode, then follow instructions, check to delete only leftovers that are highlighted, and make sure that they dont belong to other programs. If you have any doubts, dont check the boxes.

    Summary

    I have never used Hunter Mode, so I cant comment on it.
    I really appreciate the great job that Revo Uninstaller does, it removes all traces of unwanted programs. I would hate to be without this program.
    It can show you all programs in Alphabetical Order, or by the SIZE of each program, and when it was installed.
    Very helpful tool. I Love it. It works well with Avast Free Anti virus, Spybot Search and destroy, CCleaner, Advanced System Care, WinPatrol, all are free products that keep my system clean and running like new. Thank you cnet. and your readers comments. I always check out cnet reviews before downloading a software program, and before updating a new version of that program. Best way to avoid problems and headaches. I always wait 2 weeks, because some early revues are bogus, from competitors. As far as I know Revo Uninstaller Free has no competition.
