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.

"nothing special - it only did what i could do myself"

April 06, 2015  |  By spyder12x

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

Pros

it cost nothing (but wasted time) without total destruction.

Cons

NO TOTAL DESTRUCTION. all this thing did was use the uninstaller from the crap i wanted off my machine then send the leftovers to recycle bin (which is not at all like 'true' destruction.)

Summary

also crappy is green waterfalls screensaver. i uninstalled it. it left an ini configuration settings file that mcafee shredder won't touch with a 10 foot pole. all i could do was move it's 'pointer' to recycle bin. but my mentality is Shermanistic. i reinstalled and ran this. all it did was use the green waterfalls uninstaller and had no SHRED or DESTROY or OVERWRITE option for leftovers. only 'delete' to recycle bin. but i had already done that bad all by myself. i'm right back where i started!

"One of my go-to utilities for years and years"

March 12, 2015  |  By gmc_cowboy

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

Pros

Gets leftover junk the built-in uninstaller misses. Never had it remove anything it shouldn't have. Consistent, reliable.

Cons

There's a "Hunter" mode that is a little more cumbersome, probably best for advanced users only

Summary

Revo has been one of the dozen or so go-to utilities I download immediately on any PC.

"very good program"

February 02, 2015  |  By Lotusrk

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

Pros

Easy to use, thorough as expected, nice interface. Editor's review was incorrect. This is a FREE program. Free to try Pro is an upgrade that you have to agree to (don't). I have used it for years. Left behind keys are easily removed with CCleaner free version.

Cons

Hunter option has never worked for me. It is almost like hunter requires a built-in uninstall program for the software which is not always included.

Summary

I like it

"Kept getting same error from deleted malware..."

January 30, 2015  |  By Keith Chirsan

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

Pros

The usage of "Revo" is very user-friendly and it offers different 'strengths' of removal. I'm not an expert on this program but I assume the stronger methods will look deeper for orphaned files and consequently take longer to run.

Cons

Not really a 'con', more of a delay. When I went to download the 'Revo' program I received a warning that it was not safe and Chrome would not let it download. After about 2 minutes however, I got the message it was safe and it downloaded fine.

Summary

After removing several viruses from a friends computer I kept getting the same 'file not found' error, which happened to be a remnant of one of the malware titles I thought I had cleaned up. I ran Revo-uninstall and there was a box of icons displayed including the one from the program I thought I deleted. I selected the icon, clicked on uninstall, set the 'strength' I wanted the utility to run at and the error and all remnants of the problem were gone. It was so nice to be able to restart the computer and not have that error pop up anymore...

"A Great Uninstaller"

September 28, 2014  |  By Darren Dheilly

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

Pros

It worked flawlessly - CNET gave me some junk (That I opted out of), Revo uninstalled it. I used it happily and I was not put off by the crawl or the slow
speed of it... So why 3 Stars ?

Cons

It was not free. It started to hide some of those nifty features behind a paywall,
and wanted my credit card to reopen them. So sad as it was only a trial-ware program. They should say "Trial" before the install. It still worked good but not
as good as it was (I dislike Nagware).

Summary

So if you want to try it - before you buy it (Then as Rocky said ) "Go For It !". I
got rid of it (that was not easy) and went with another, a good free and a bit
faster one.

"Premature Review"

June 14, 2014  |  By doug_valmore

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

Pros

Very pretty GUI (lots of nice big icons).
Opportunity to dig deep to "get it all" is great.
Unambiguous (Windows Programs and features always says "uninstall/change" - doesn't instill confidence about which it's actually going to do)

Cons

Haven't really had much to uninstall yet - (did install one thing I knew I didn't want just to try it out). Seems to work fine, but more experience with it over time will be more definitive...

Summary

I enjoy getting useful programs for free, even if it's to nag me to upgrade. So far so good...

"The best uninstaller"

June 11, 2014  |  By MightyShah

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

Pros

This program uninstalled the crap I was trying to delete without any problems. Control panel and CCleaner didn't help.

Cons

A bit hard to figure out at first

Summary

The best!!!

"It's Revo Uninstaller, What More Do You Want?"

June 02, 2014  |  By C8H10N4O2

 |  Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

Pros

The free program is great at what it does. Much better than any standard installer/uninstaller package that comes with windows/most programs. This actually gets rid of leftover crap on your computer that the included installer/uninstaller programs miss. If you want added security to make sure any computer changes a newly installed program makes, drop a few bucks to support the PRO version, otherwise, this version will do most of what you'd hope from a program like this.

Cons

It doesn't have the full functionality of the pro version, which runs on sale for 50% off regularly, but that's about the worst thing to say about Revo Uninstaller.
