    "Great substitute for the system uninstall tool"

    January 2, 2010  |   By Solidude

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.83

    Pros

    Thorough and efficient, gives peace of mind when uninstalling

    Cons

    Does not seem to "remember" what is installed, has to refresh installed program list every startup

    Summary

    Doesn't quite see every program installed, but hunter mode corrects that

    "Worth every penny!"

    December 19, 2009  |   By jvanreese

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.83

    Pros

    I like that it searches and cleans file remnants that would normally be left behind by the standard uninstall file. Great interface.

    Cons

    There wasn't a thing I didn't like. It did exactly what I wanted it to do.

    "1.83 not as good as the earlier versions"

    December 17, 2009  |   By doorbite

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.83

    Pros

    the important thing i like is it shows you how many programmes you have running on your PC so u can quickly see if you still need them or not

    Cons

    it says when you delete a programme it will remove all software off your PC but if you are useing Control 3 it still leaves your software there that u have deleted so u have to go back in there to delete from Control 3 Evidence Remover does not work

    Summary

    i dislike the idea haveing to go back into Control 3 to see if it has deleted software from there, I dislike the EVIDENCE REMOVER as it does not work at all it use to work on earlier versions but since the updates it does not work at all i have left it running for 72hrs a few times with no success all it does is remove 1% out of 100% thats a failure and it will use 100% of your CPU trying to run i have complained to Revo a couple of times and ask them for help with no success so to me the 1.83 Revo Uninstaller is a failure.

    Updated on Dec 17, 2009

    I am useing Windows XP on my PC desktop,plus i am useing a 500GB HD and i still have 443GB of free space on there plus i am useing a 2GB RAM stick

    "Works exactly as I expected it to work."

    December 15, 2009  |   By cheuvrontd

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.83

    Pros

    Easy to understand and operate. I always create a restore point prior to using, but I have not had to restore after using this product.

    Cons

    None, yet.

    Summary

    I like the solution because it goes beyond the software's uninstall package by removing unnecessary registry items and files/folders no longer needed.

    "Easy download and install. Performed very well."

    December 14, 2009  |   By nocturne05

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.83

    Pros

    Made it very clear what it could do. I made my selection and it went to work immediatelly. Then it told me what it had done and what else it could do if I wanted.

    Cons

    None really. I have only used it once. I will edit this evaluation if I have anyl problems.

    Summary

    I used Revo as a recommendation I found on CNET for removing STOPzilla. Others appeared to have problems removing the program, which was a bad actor from the beginning. I have an old computer for experiments, a DELL running XP Professional, so there wasn't much risk if things went wrong. Nothing did. Revo went to work, performed just a little slower than I expected, but appears to have removed all traces of STOPzilla, including all registrly entries that had been added. The afterwards report of what it had done was impressive, and the old Dell is still working well. No surprises, for me a powerful endorsement.

    "best free uninstaller"

    December 12, 2009  |  

    Version: Revo Uninstaller 1.83

    Pros

    Other software may uninsulated but leave behind tones of files. This one will uninstall Norton and McAfee, which once installed can be more pain than good.

    Cons

    Easy to use, but be careful only mark bolded boxes.

    Summary

    it is free and also very good
