    "Worked for me!"

    May 26, 2015  |   By Rayne Sonner

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    I have been meaning to install Revo for ages to clean out some junk on my PC but never got around to it. Well today I really needed it after I couldn't get rid of a program with just my PCs' uninstall application, and it worked just they way I thought it would. No surprises, no whistles and bells, it just got rid of the garbage program. I used the secure download and it didn't add any bundleware as far as I can see (and if it did, I'll use Revo to remove it) and it was super-easy to use.

    Cons

    It doesn't seem that it can be used to get rid of browsers like the Homepage-Web browser hijacker that sneaked its way on to my PC. I wish it could help get rid of that.

    "Not a Fix-All. Won't Work for Everything"

    May 13, 2015  |   By S1rst1nky

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    Easy to use
    Tons of features and controls
    Straightforward user interface
    Free version is just fine
    Works for most problems

    Cons

    Won't uninstall badly corrupted programs

    Summary

    I got this for the sole purpose of removing a badly corrupted factory image of Microsoft Office 2010. I read all the reviews and thought this would be my savior, but I was wrong. It does work for most things, but it won't identify every piece of software on your system. Office didn't show up in the programs list when I launched it, so I couldn't remove it. I ended up going back to Microsoft Fix It and Ccleaner (which still didn't work). I tried it on some other test programs and it worked fine. Ran the uninstaller then ran it's own set of cleaners to purge the registry of any leftover app or program data.

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

    April 6, 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 2, 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.

    Summary

    "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...
