Editors' Review

+

Revo Uninstaller adds some serious power to uninstalling programs, but not a lot of speed. It certainly runs circles around the default option in Windows. However, it's not the most convenient way to kick programs off of your hard drive. It tucks many of the best features behind a paywall, too.

Revo Uninstaller comes with the free trial, which lacks some of the high-end features of the pro version. Though it can delete some registry errors that usually come with deleting programs, it doesn't remove all of them. To do that, you need to upgrade or use a different program. Upgrading doesn't add any speed to this download, which is something it's sorely missing. It makes you wait until one program is finished to start uninstalling another. It's even more annoying since you have to go through each individual program's built-in uninstall process, too. Choosing programs to uninstall is easy and fast, though, thanks to the program's icon-oriented menu. There are plenty of options to tweak your uninstalls. You can choose from options that include a light uninstall or a deep cleaning that rips all traces of the program off of your hard drive. There's even a really neat "hunting" mode that lets you uninstall programs or kill tasks without fully loading the program.

Revo Uninstaller seems to be a very interesting mix of registry-cleaning and uninstall programs. Luckily, it does both of those actions well enough to earn a passing grade. If you really like the program, you might want to upgrade to the pro version. It's fairly priced and adds some essential features that aren't available in the free version.

"The best. Removes it all."

July 07, 2013  |  By William-Thorn

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.94

Pros

Had for many years. Never found a program or component it couldn't remove. No place to hide -get's it all. Has multiple levels of removal all the way to the registry.

Cons

Has a few features I've been afraid to try.

Summary

No such thing as an irremovable program or component.

"Gets stuck and contains unwanted software"

July 02, 2013

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.94

Pros

INstallation was quick.

Cons

Installed this on a fresh Windows7 machine only to find unwated software running on my system. "SweetPacks updater service", something called "Top Arcade Hits" and a reported spyware exe (stij.exe *32) is now constantly running on my system.

Besides the garbage it comes with, it couldn't uninstall my failed installation. It only launches the uninstaller, same as Windows Uninstall... only with spyware.

Summary

Doesn't work properly and Contains spyware

"You will love this program!"

May 31, 2013  |  By heidiquinn

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.94

Pros

If you love having your browser and searches hijacked, you will love this! My last review (and others)only lasted one day, so I guess Cnet pulls negative reviews and only keeps the glowing ones. Dishonest at best as to actual user reviews of this corrupted download. So good luck as you will have NO option not to get the crap with it!

Cons

Please see above.

"Been using this for years!"

May 29, 2013  |  By jran1011

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.94

Pros

Always there, never given me any problems. Especially like that it deep-cleans, removing any remnants of uninstalled programs.

Cons

No gripes. They don't even bug you to update, plus it's ALWAYS 50% off if you decide to!

Summary

Ultra-confident in this program, never any issues!

"Very good for addressing leftover bits"

May 24, 2013  |  By turple

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.94

Pros

Fast, very good at presenting options.

Cons

None I've found.

Summary

I've used this for years, first on XP and now on Win7. I have had no problems at all, and plan to use this for as long as I can. The only problem for Revo is: I can't understand why I would want to upgrade to the "Pro" version. (Although come to think of it, I think I will, as a reward for creating a great free program that I've used many times.)

"No support for Revo Uninstaller Pro"

May 07, 2013  |  By MormonYoYoMan

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.94

Pros

It works great - until a system restore removes it.

Cons

Despite email after email, visiting them at their site, and trying a phone number I found, this company refuses to answer.

Summary

Use the freeware; do NOT buy the Pro version. Revo refuses to acknowledge purchase and ignores all communication.

"loved It until I got Windows Eight"

April 27, 2013  |  By Maryellen272

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.94

Pros

This was a fantastic program when i had Vista. It kept my computer in great shape

Cons

Now that I have Windows 8 it won't work, get hung up all the time. I wish they would fix these issues for us Windows 8 users. Wish I knew what other program would work as good on windows 8. Any Ideas, out there, if so let me know. I'd really appreciate your help!

Summary

All in all I love Revo, just can't get it to work for windows 8. Otherwise you couldn't find a better program.
