Editors' review

Dedicated uninstallers make up one of the most useful yet underrated classes of Windows utilities. A good one not only improves on the built-in uninstaller found in the Control Panel by removing programs the Windows tool won't, sometimes by forcing matters, but also cleans up the leftover files, folders, and even registry keys that uninstalled programs often leave behind. Your Uninstaller Pro from URSoft does all that and also includes useful extras like a File Shredder, Disk Cleaner, Startup Manager, and Trace Eraser. It also has some smart features that keep it from removing crucial programs. The trial version of Your Uninstaller Pro is fully functional and free to use for 21 days.

Your Uninstaller Pro's colorful interface offers several ways to display your installed programs in its main window, starting with the default display, a field of program icons. We clicked View and changed to the Details view, which let us sort our programs by size, date last accessed, and, most importantly, installation date. We could also customize the program's sidebar panels and choose a different interface language from a huge list. Your Uninstaller's menu also offers a Start Menu tool and easy access to various Windows Tools in your system, such as Security Center, Services, and On Screen Keyboard.

But we were interested in how Your Uninstaller Pro performs. Clicking Uninstall starts the process, but you have more choices in the lower panel: not just Uninstall but also Advanced Uninstall, Quick Uninstall, AutoFix, which scans all apps for issues, and Empty Gone, which removes empty folders.

We selected a program and clicked Uninstall. A wizard with four Modes opened: Built-In, Safe, Normal, and Super. Since Built-In just runs the program's uninstaller and Normal includes Safe Mode (and it's the default), we chose Normal Mode. Your Uninstaller Pro created an automatic (and optional) System Restore Point. It uninstalled the app and scanned for leftovers, which we removed with a click.

We've relied on tools like Your Uninstaller Pro for years. Whether it's better for your needs than similar freeware, we can't say, but its extra features definitely add to its appeal.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Your Uninstaller 7.4.2012.05.

    "Gonna switch: this software includes Babylon malware!"

    May 13, 2013   |   By dewul

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Easy, fast, thorough.

    Cons

    The latest version comes with Babylon Toolbar. When installing, it offers to install this toolbar. However, even though one de-selects(!) all items, Babylon is being still installed....
    The browser homepage is replaced, there are a lot entries on your disk, whatever other crap.
    BTW there is an elaborate report on:
    http://www.experienceproject.com/stories/Want-To-Swap-Info-On-Computers-Browsers-Software-Etc/2060841

    That aside: it does not offer you to delete 'leftovers' and does not display the registry tree so you can select the registry key.
    (I can live with that though, can take care of this manually)

    Summary

    Even though I was convinced having licensed the best uninstallers and took a lifetime license, I am frustrated and will be switching to another uninstaller.

    Good program that is destroyed by spamware.

    "Good now but it was better before Bundling"

    April 24, 2012   |   By RGoodhouse

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    This Software has been great in helping to keep System Clean and Well Tuned

    Cons

    With this release they have started Bundling their installation with Crappy Software, So While I still use it, and promote the software, I have to lower my rating due to the lack on information with the Bundle

    "Superb, the best!"

    April 17, 2012   |   By Randy Bell

    Version: Your Uninstaller 7.4.2012.05

    Pros

    Easy to use; intuitive user interface; plus several other tools discussed in the Summary below.

    Cons

    none, really.

    Summary

    This used to be listed as #1 uninstaller at CNET. To my mind, it should have remained so; I guess the rankings are based solely on number of downloads. And this product isn't free; so that may explain it. Has such an intuitive user interface; plus several other tool: start-up manager; Start Menu manager; Trace eraser; File Shredder; and access to various built-in Windows Tools such as: Disk Defrag; Network Information and Diagnostics; Active TCP/IP connections; Security Center; Windows Services manager; etc.

    "Best Uninstaller I have Ever used."

    February 03, 2012   |   By RGoodhouse

    Version: Your Uninstaller 7.4.2012.01

    Pros

    It creates a System restore point before uninstalling anything. Cleans my registry after Uninstalling the Application I don't want.
    Allows me to manager my Auto-Start menu with the greatest of ease. So Much easier than using MSCONFIG

    Cons

    I have No Complaints about this product

    Summary

    I have used this product for well over 5 years now and it just gets better with each release, except when it was bundled with other Products. Since the Bundling has stopped I'm very Happy again and I continue to proudly promoted this product to my Friends and Custommers.

    "Excellent Uninstall Utility, the best !"

    January 27, 2012   |   By Randy Bell

    Version: Your Uninstaller 7.4.2012.01

    Pros

    Easy interface (GUI), very easy to use and does what it claims to do, and that very effectively - to remove every vestige of the program being uninstalled - much better than the native Windows uninstaller.

    Cons

    none, really

    Summary

    I don't understand any of the comments about hijacking private settings such as browser homepage and the like. This product operates and functions as advertised, and deserves a #1 ranking among all such products. The user can choose between various depths and quality of uninstall, from a basic uninstall which calls the native Windows uninstall, to a "safe mode" uninstall which scans the registry; to a "normal mode" which takes longer time to scan more thoroughly for remnants of the uninstalled program; to a "normal mode" which is the suggested default; to a "super mode" which does the most thorough, exhaustive scan for program remnants but takes the longest time - a nice option for, say, removing an Anti-Virus product - because to install a new AV product requires that ALL remnants of the previously installed, OLD Antivirus product be removed - and Windows Security Center can even report multiple AV's if you don't completely purge your system of ALL traces of old AV products before installing a new one. Finally, the program offers a Disk Cleaner, Start Menu controller, Trace Eraser, File Shredder, and a module to access all the common Windows Tools (Defrag, System Info, Services, System Properties, Security Center, Active TCP/IP connections, Network Diagnostics and Info, etc.) All in all the best such product on the market bar none, in my book!

    "A tremendously useful utilities suite."

    January 07, 2012   |   By ShaiLash1

    Version: Your Uninstaller 7.4.2011.15

    Pros

    Even though called uninstaller - has much more than what fits it's name.
    User friendly interface and panel buttons description.
    Works fast and at various levels between automatic and fully user controlled.
    Updated reasonably and easily and no B.S. about versions, payments and such. You buy it - you have it and it is updated.

    Cons

    Sorry, can't help you here.

    Summary

    One of the best utility suites for monitoring and controlling Windows
    the way the user wants and not the way someone in Microzift thinks is best.
