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.

    "Works Great"

    July 2, 2012  |   By TexasSkunk

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.93

    Pros

    Uninstalls apps that I could not budge with a lb of C4.
    Easy to use
    Much more thorough than Windows Control Panel uninstall
    Cleans registry
    Cleans up missed uninstall files

    Cons

    Tries to install unwanted apps during the install process - just watch the screen and uncheck what you do not want.
    Sure it tries to install other apps - Who do you think pays the freight for this free app?
    Real tough uninstalls required me to run the program twice to get rid of everything.

    Summary

    Best uninstaller I have found. Better than Windows Uninstaller. It finds unused files as well.

    "It tries to install too much junk"

    June 22, 2012  |   By conand19

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.93

    Pros

    Got tired of unchecking the garbage it wanted to install. Didn't install it.

    Cons

    After I unchecked the toolbar it wanted to install, then unchecked another program it wanted to install, then I saw that Pontoon was going to be put on my computer (that didn't look good on a search) I stopped installing this program.

    Summary

    When c'net or whoever stops putting all the garbage addons, maybe I'll try here again.

    "Does what it says it will."

    May 18, 2012  |   By virrawlley

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.93

    Pros

    One can select how deep Revo will look for traces of an uninstalled application. The Hunter mode is a fast select to uninstall a running program. Say you run an application and find you don't need it anymore, just slide the Hunter Mode Icon onto it and uninstall without having to shut it down or opening the Revo Uninstall page or of course "Programs Files" in the Control Panel.

    Cons

    I haven't figured any. A lovely piece of soft-ware.

    Summary

    Makes sense to have, specially for those of us who like to experiment with applications. an uncluttered system is a faster system. Of course regular cleaning and de-frag is essential too. thanks to the people who created this and have offered it free. Most grateful friends !

    "Awesome. nearly perfect"

    May 10, 2012  |   By AmadeusStyle

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.93

    Pros

    Nearly paid 34.95 for a program offering the same service out of pure frustration.
    this program is quick, effective and user friendly.
    I would love to donate to great code like this!

    Cons

    none. This program uninstalled the most stubborn corrupt program for me with absolutely no trouble at all.

    Summary

    Perfect for uninstalling hard to remove programs
