Editors' review

Uninstalling bloated programs and process-hogging applications is one of the most critical ways to keep your system's performance snappy. Unfortunately, the built-in Windows uninstaller is limited when it comes to removing leftover files and residue.

Wise Program Uninstaller takes it up a notch as an alternative solution. When you first fire up the program, you're greeted with some basic options and metrics. The bottom status bar lets you know how many running programs are installed and how much space is occupied. There are two main uninstall approaches: safe and forced.

Safe uninstall guides you through the default uninstallation process and gives you the option to remove any related files, folders, and registry entries. Forced uninstalls are used more for cases where programs are more stubborn about being removed. Wise Program Uninstaller also offers a repair option for faulty installations, though reinstalling would probably get stabler results.

The interface is fairly clean: it's not too cluttered and there are no unnecessary features or buttons. One additional feature we appreciated was the ability to go directly to the registry editor for each installed program by right-clicking on an installed item. There's also a seemingly random "like" button placed, which, to be quite frank, we can only imagine a very small audience using to publicly declare their affection for a system utility. But, hey, whatever floats your boat.

Wise Program Uninstaller is a lean and mean cleaning machine. We definitely prefer it over the stock Windows control panel and definitely recommend it for anyone who frequently maintains a PC.

    "Wise Uninstaller uninstalls much too much"

    July 31, 2014   |   By HeDiBo

    Version: Wise Program Uninstaller 1.63

    Pros

    A smooth interface

    Cons

    The uninstaller deletes too much!

    Summary

    The scan after the uninstall gives you the possibility to uncheck things you don't want to be deleted. But this window is way too small, so you don't know which ones are good and which ones are bad.

    Most of the time the uninstaller deletes too much. Even to a point to make other programs fail (HijackThis for instance).

    Don't use this program. It is much too dangerous for the uninitiated.

    "Good uninstaller but poor ratings section"

    June 05, 2014   |   By manny_smith

    Version: Wise Program Uninstaller 1.63

    Pros

    Finds most left over folder, files and registry entries.
    Seems to be Windows 8 ready and works great in 7.
    Nice user interface
    Has a portable apps version

    Cons

    Wise Cloud ratings default to 5 stars even when you click 2 stars
    Wise Cloud ratings can't be deleted or edited.
    No web support forums
    Web support contact is BROKEN

    Summary

    It looks like a potentially excellent product but they have no web support forums, the form to submit for support is broken and the Wise Cloud ratings section is also broken.

    These are symptoms of a fly-by-night or badly run company and so I wouldn't expect them to stick around long.

    Pros

    Safe Uninstall and Forced Uninstall features could be chosen ,and the program going to be uninstalled completely and clean.

    Cons

    didn't figure out.

    Summary
