Editors' Review

+

Computers inevitably accrue a mass of unwanted and unused files that eat up system resources and reduce system stability. Uninstalling these items can be an arduous task, but Your Uninstaller 2006 simplifies the process considerably.

The interface is attractive and handy, whether you run in Basic or Pro mode. We prefer Pro, which provides additional features for organizing your start-up items, contextual menus, and temporary files, and lets you drag and drop a program's icon to the uninstaller's icon to remove the program. The utility provides a far more comprehensive list of installed software than the standard Add/Remove Programs feature in Windows, and it removes programs more rapidly and thoroughly. It quickly scans for unnecessary files without taxing system resources. It can clean up files and Registry keys that past uninstalls have left behind; it can even uninstall itself.

Your Uninstaller 2006 would suit casual users more than serious system tweakers, but it manages the process of uninstalling programs efficiently and intuitively.

"Computer hasn't worked right since."

January 28, 2009  |  By bgharp

 |  Version: Your Uninstaller 2008 6.1.1259

Pros

I have found nothing with which I am pleased.

Cons

A-Soft Uninstaller download includes another program, RegFixPro that checks your registry, finds hundreds of errors. It says it fixes a few but if you want the rest fixed you must register. I have RegCure and did not want another registry cleaner.

Summary

Since I downloaded ZSoft-Unistaller I have spent hours attempting to get my computer straightened out. The download included RegFix Pro which I did not want. I now get "DrWatson Postmortem debugger' popups I can't stop. ZSoft-Uninstaller and RegFixPro icons are on my desktop that I can't get rid of. ZSoft-Uninstaller is listed as a program under Start - Programs but is not in my list of installed programs.
All in all, I sincerely regret downloading ZSoft-Uninstaller.
If anyone reads this and can suggest how to get rid of it and Dr. Watson I would appreciate a hail. bg.harp@comcast.net

"A must for anyone who downloads trial software"

December 14, 2008  |  By kleer51

 |  Version: Your Uninstaller 2008 6.1.1259

Pros

I've used Your uninstaller for several years. It has always been reliable - no worries about leftover registry entries, they're all taken care of safely by this software.

Cons

I haven't found any problems yet.

Summary

If you like to try out software which you later decide to remove, this is an essential piece of kit. It identifies the programs you've added since you last opened YU. Wherever it can, it uses the original software's uninstaller first then cleans up afterwards. You can see exactly which files and registry entries it wants to remove, and you can choose to leave them (but why would you?).

"Excellent Software - Takes the guesswork out"

December 04, 2008  |  By 1994snake

Pros

Does everything I needed and so much more. Used about 1% of its abilities to make a huge difference on my computers performance.

Cons

Nothing to mention as of yet.

Summary

Bottom line the program works. Does all that it describes and more. Now if only we could find a President with this much credibility.... :)

"A Incredibly Useful & Must Have Tool for Everyone!!"

November 22, 2008  |  By Slinky Grafix

 |  Version: Your Uninstaller 2008 6.1.1259

Pros

Finally the search is over! Your Uninstaller is a superb program which really does do exactly as it says on the tin. But hey, don't just believe what other's are saying, try it yourself for 21 days for free. You won't be disappointed!

Cons

I can't think of any!

Summary

First off, the 21 day free trial is more than ample to test this programs suitablity. Not only does it monitor all new program installations, but can also remove programs no longer listed in the 'Add/Remove Programs' in Windows Control Panel. Your Uninstaller lists all newly installed programs and identifies these by highlighting them for easy recognition in it's user interface. Uninstalling a program is a breeze and unlike the windows version of uninstaller it even removes redundant entries from the registry. Another very useful and invaluable feature of Your Uninstaller is that it comes complete with a whole host of other very useful cleaning features not found in some more inferior products. Cleaning and removing Windows Temp files is made very easy as Your Uninstaller does this too. In addition to this, you can even cleanup all your recent surfing traces which over time really slow down Internet Explorer. Some other useful tools can also be found but really you need to experience this programs benefits for yourself. I was fortunate enough to have this recommended to me by a friend who works as a computer technician. I'm happy to say that his advice did not disappoint!

"BEST WAY TO CLEAN THE GARBAGE THAT CLOGS THE WINDOWS"

"This is pretty slick! Nice, clean, efficient."

October 12, 2008  |  By beddy1

 |  Version: Your Uninstaller 2008 6.1.1259

Pros

Cleans up corrupted uninstallers. Even if the program doesn't show up in Add/Remove. Removes everything related to the program you're uninstalling, unlike a registry cleaner that can be over zealous taking the bad AND some good at the same time.

Cons

Can't think of anything off hand

Summary

Miles above using a registry cleaner to clean up left overs from poorly written uninstallers. Ever used a registry cleaner, hard drive cleaner etc etc. At some point they all tend to take out too much.Then try to use Outlook or Word and see the "Please wait while Windows configures your installer" warning? That obviously means somewhere along the way, one of your 'cleaners' was overzealous or careless in what it removed. There IS such a thing as having a too clean registry. But Your Uninstaller goes after just the intended program's files and registry info. I'm all through with 'cleaners' that are careless with my files.
