    "Works Good"

    September 21, 2013  |   By arcanemethods

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    I've used it quite a bit and it's very thorough in it's sweep.

    Cons

    Perhaps too thorough. While I can't for certain blame Revo my system wouldn't boot following uninstall of Adobe Acrobat 10, Adobe Air and Adobe Reader followed by reinstall of Air and Reader. Reboot failed and went into a prolonged repair mode. Repair was successful but had me frightened.

    "Easy to use, effectively removes unwanted programs."

    September 20, 2013  |   By rrochefort

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    Removes a great deal more than most built-in uninstallers. Effectively removed all of a corrupted program, which was required before it could be re-installed, after a number of other attempts failed.

    Cons

    No significant cons that I am aware of.

    "Quite Efficient"

    September 18, 2013  |   By RoyWeeks

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    I haven't used add/remove in so many years I forgot what it looks like.
    It's amazing all the crap each programs' built-in uninstaller leaves behind. Not just leftover files & folders, but especially registry entries.

    Cons

    Waiting time for built-in uninstallers even in pro version, which has some nice extra functions, but works anyway.

    Summary

    Revo shows all the steps it's taking so I don't mind waiting the bit of extra time consumed, or lack of batch file deletion because when all is said & done, I have the warm feeling that it did an excellent job of what it was supposed to do.

    "I like this page"

    August 23, 2013  |   By onapthanh

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    I use this on a Windows 7 Dell and an XP Home HP. Yes as stated elsewhere it is time consuming but it does so much I can accept the time commitment.
    Be extremely careful, a lot of what it does is un-recoverable but then that is one of the positives

    Cons

    I use this on a Windows 7 Dell and an XP Home HP. Yes as stated elsewhere it is time consuming but it does so much I can accept the time commitment.
    Be extremely careful, a lot of what it does is un-recoverable but then that is one of the positives, right? I originally tried this so I could remove left over bits of uninstalled programs that were still causing problems especially when I wanted to do a completely clean re-install http://onaprsc.com.vn

    "great uninstaller"

    July 30, 2013  |   By stcktnlinda55

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    It removes anything that you can't do with the add or remove progran.

    Cons

    I can't find anything wrong with it.

    Summary

    I was trying to remove a program from the add/remove program for about 30 or 45 minutes last week, then I remembered I had revo, so I tried it and it took it right off. Now when I have a problem I'll use revo!!!

    "My go-to uninstaller after using system uninstaller"

    July 21, 2013  |   By Lynn06

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.95

    Pros

    Seems to do an admirable job, I like it so much I would upgrade to the Pro version.

    Cons

    Most freeware wants to install 3rd party software so be diligent and be sure to uncheck the boxes for all you don't want. And just to be sure, after you download a free program go to the Control Panel Uninstall and check to see if you have any new junk you didn't want from 3rd parties.

    Summary

    I use this on a Windows 7 Dell and an XP Home HP. Yes as stated elsewhere it is time consuming but it does so much I can accept the time commitment.
    Be extremely careful, a lot of what it does is un-recoverable but then that is one of the positives, right? I originally tried this so I could remove left over bits of uninstalled programs that were still causing problems especially when I wanted to do a completely clean re-install. I also use several others (Malwarebytes & CCleaner) and so far have been satisfied with the Free versions of all. Just be aware of what will be done BEFORE you hit next/continue. They are not kidding when they say it is permanent.
    I am not an IT person but do all my own computer maintenance & repairs (haven't had a computer in the shop since 1999) & use this on my personal computers. One is used as a work computer since I work from home & I need to be able to completely obliterate work files. I realize they are not actually "deleted" just overwritten numerous times but as long as they are not able to be read/recovered I don't care how that is accomplished.
