Editors' Review

Wise Program Uninstaller helps you get rid of even the most pesky and stubborn software on your computer. It works much like the standard Windows Uninstaller, but its extra features and Forced Uninstall options make it a good tool to have on hand.

Pros

Smooth interface: Wise Program Uninstaller features a streamlined and attractive interface, which shows all the relevant information about how many programs are installed on your computer and how much space they take up. At the top of the window, you'll see a total for all programs, and the main area of the screen is filled with a scrollable list of programs along with their basic details. There is also a search box in the upper right-hand corner of the interface for finding specific programs quickly.

Extra scan: For most normal software, this app works in much the same way that the standard Windows Uninstaller does, especially when you run a Safe Uninstall. But once the program has been removed, Wise takes the process a step further by performing an additional scan to see if any files associated with the newly deleted program were left behind. Once the scan is complete, you can verify the results to ensure they're not actually files that you need, and then erase them as well.

Cons

Multiple attempts: Some programs caused the app to freeze when we tried to uninstall them, and those required us to cancel the process and begin again. But ultimately all uninstalls we attempted were successful.

Bottom Line

Wise Program Uninstaller gives a great boost to the standard Windows Uninstaller. It's a free utility that runs smoothly for the most part, and it presents features in an accessible way that makes the app useful for people of all experience levels.

"Works very well."

January 12, 2016  |  By neplusultraomni

2016-01-12 12:45:53  |  By neplusultraomni

 |  Version: Wise Program Uninstaller 1.83

Pros

I've only used it a few times, but it seemed to work well when I tried it. I've also tried IObit Uninstaller and Revo uninstaller and they also seem to work well. Unlike IObit, it does not do a lot of tinkering with your system. You might wish to have more than one of these on your system since one program may be better than the other in getting rid of a difficult program.

Cons

None at all.

"Cannot display the stubborn program"

November 06, 2015  |  By Holybride

2015-11-06 23:17:15  |  By Holybride

 |  Version: Wise Program Uninstaller 1.82.97

Pros

I dunno. It's quite useless to me now.

Cons

Cannot display "Intel(r) Proset/Wireless software for bluetooth technology" that I want to uninstall. IObit Uinstaller can display it, but it's unable to uninstall it.
So this software is quite useless to me right now.

"Uninstalled After First Use"

August 30, 2015  |  By BearPuppy

2015-08-30 10:17:05  |  By BearPuppy

 |  Version: Wise Program Uninstaller 1.73.92

Pros

The few functions which were there weren't able to counteract its fatal flaw (see below).

Cons

Spoiled by IObit, there was no powerful or scanning for left-overs by Wise Uninstaller. Instead, there was the standard Windows statement that "leftovers may be removed by the next time you start Windows". Maybe....No thanks, I'm back with IObit Uninstaller 4.3 (don't care for the 5.0 version).

"Worked well, solved my problem"

2015-07-26 07:55:10  |  By DarkyT

 |  Version: Wise Program Uninstaller 1.72.91

Pros

Downloaded without adding any nasty malware, I saw an earlier comment warning to be careful during installation but didn't have to decline anything.

Cons

None that I'm aware of so far.

Summary

I had a bunch of annoying malware programs that wouldn't let me uninstall them the usual way. This program wiped them all out without any hassles. 10 out of 10

"Worked as advertised. Quick and Efficient"

March 09, 2015  |  By cmk2112

2015-03-09 12:48:44  |  By cmk2112

 |  Version: Wise Program Uninstaller 1.67.86

Pros

Easy and quick install. There are 2 options when removing a program: Safe or Forced. I am running Windows 8.1 and the Programs and Features uninstaller would not complete. After installing the Wise Uninstaller, the massive 'bad' install of Roxio NXT3 was gone in about 2 minutes. I had previously wasted about 45 minutes waiting for Windows to unsuccessfully complete the uninstall...

Cons

I have only used it 1 time, and I did not see anything negative. And it's free... So there's that...

Summary

See 'Pros' above...

"removed something IObit couldn't"

January 03, 2015  |  By kimmykrayonz

2015-01-03 03:49:45  |  By kimmykrayonz

 |  Version: Wise Program Uninstaller 1.65.84

Pros

It uninstalled 'mystartsearch' via force uninstall. IObit couldn't after I did its quick and powerful uninstall. Maybe IObit has another way to uninstall it but I couldn't be bothered looking for it.

Cons

When installing it I had to uncheck a lot of bad third-party programs, I missed one somehow and downloaded some crap PC cleaner thing, but it uninstalled easily. So at the start, you check the 'custom installation' option and then uncheck all the programs next to the box. On the next windows read what its asking you to install, if it doesn't say 'wise program uninstaller ' press DECLINE.

Summary

It's good, but as with downloading anything, READ and uncheck or decline anything in the installation process which isn't the program you were trying to install

"Use with caution!"

January 01, 2015  |  By GCG1000

2015-01-01 04:47:17  |  By GCG1000

 |  Version: Wise Program Uninstaller 1.65.84

Pros

None at this time.

Cons

The latest version of Wise Program Uninstaller does not launch properly in Windows 8.1. Program freezes during its "Gathering Program Information " phase and can only be halted by a logout or system restart.

Summary

I am a Wise cleaner Pro user and have been using their program set of apps for some time. However, with the lousy performance of their uninstaller, I've uninstalled Wise and am using ASC! At least everything in ASC 8.0 works properly.
