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.

"Great Product"

September 19, 2011  |  By andy prakken

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 2.5.3

Pros

Does what it says.

Cons

When Checking the Registry after a Program has been removed, I find sometimes that entries are still left behind in the Registry.

Summary

Why does it state in the Quick Specs that it is Version 2.5.3 and then when it is installed, it shows as Version 1.9.3. Just Wondering??

"A good product"

September 19, 2011  |  By bdfun

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 2.5.3

Pros

Does a few more things than CCleaner but it also does a few less things.

Cons

Interface will allow you to do things easier than using the windows tools.

Summary

All in all not a bad product but I do not think this is for the less than savvy user. I installed and ran some things. 2 days later I uninstalled. I use CCleaner on a regular basis and I believe that it is a better product.

"I love Revo"

September 17, 2011  |  By auer_dave

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 2.5.3

Pros

Uninstalls programs and all their myriad tentacles
shows you what programs may be lurking in the program, that were installed with other programs without your knowledge
Hunter mode helps root out those unwanted programs that may exist hiding

Cons

sometimes leaves icon for shortcut on start menu and/or taskbar -- but in reality this is trivial as clicking on icon, Windows will inform you that this nows leads to nowheres and asks if you wish to delete shortcut.
None other that i know of

Summary

I love Revo Uninstaller because it allows me to download other programs and test them, with the confidence that with Revo I can completely uninstall a program, pulling out all its tenticles like an unwanted weed. Revo will say that its advanced mode is the slowest, but in reality the time difference between the advanced mode and the moderate mode is a few seconds, maybe an extra 20 seconds. However those extra seconds are well spend rooting out all the add-ons, attachments, and hidden files a program may have buried in your Program files folder, or Program files (x86) folder.
As I said having Revo Uninstaller allows me to test out other programs recommended by Cnet or other users with the confidence that if I'm unhappy with that program, then Revo will like weed-killer pull out all its roots leaving none behind.
While Revo will delete the desktop icon of removed program, it will leave behind the start menu icon or taskbar icon, yet that's a simole matter of deleting those, especially since Windows will inform you that these icon shortcuts lead to programs that have deleted.
In general, I've been using Revo for years and love it.
