    "Was Great, Now Not So Much"

    February 24, 2013  |   By ddd831


    Previous to Windows 8 this program rocked. After running the uninstaller for the program being uninstalled, it would continue on and find leftover registry entries and folders/files the uninstaller missed and allow you to delete them.


    Now when the program goes to find the leftover registry entries and files on your hard drive it takes forever to finish, which it did not do before Windows 8. I've had it take as long as 30 minutes to an hour to finish the leftovers cleanup. Entirely unacceptable. Apparently, it needs a rewrite for Windows 8 because it worked great under previous versions of Windows.


    Am not going to use Revo any more and will look for another uninstaller that works under Windows 8, at least until the developer(s) fix what's wrong with Revo as it now exists.

    I'm curious to know if your Win 8 installation is 64-bit. Another user reported problems with that.
    I used it on both Vista and Win 8 Pro, 32-bit, and found it really works well.
