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.

"Worked as advertised. Quick and Efficient"

March 09, 2015  |  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

 |  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

 |  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.

"excellent uninstaller for pretty much everything"

November 19, 2014  |  By danika0827

 |  Version: Wise Program Uninstaller 1.65.84

Cons

nothing bad about this program

"Best Uninstaller of them all"

October 19, 2014  |  By fredg06

 |  Version: Wise Program Uninstaller 1.64

Pros

Uninstalls a program, then shows a window of analyzing all files, finding strings of remnants in C/Program Files, and the Registry, to delete. It then shows a listing of what remaining it wants to delete, and waits for your OK.

Cons

If you don't want the bundled bunch of freeware programs that comes with it, you must keep clicking the "Decline" button at the bottom left of the install screen. After about 3 times of "Declining", it wil then install the Wise Program Uninstaller.

Summary

A very good uninstaller. I tried the IOBit Uninstaller, Version 4.04 (I think). It uninstalled a program for me, then when I clicked OK to uninstall the rest of the remnants, it ran for minutes, not showing any % finished or to go, and after 10 minutes, I finally stopped it. I used Wise to uninstall the IOBit mess.
I highly suggest trying the Wise Uninstaller. I do not use the "Forced Uninstall", it might be too bold for me !!

"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.

I would recommend the Geek uninstaller: http://www.geekuninstaller.com/
