As the developer promises, ZSoft Uninstaller is indeed far superior to the native Windows program uninstaller. The freeware first runs the unwanted program's original uninstall option before cleaning up with its own technology. But for a more thorough uninstall, ZSoft Uninstaller offers an analyze function that you can use during the initial installation of programs to track exactly which files are being added to your system.
Later, when you want to uninstall a program, you can click the Analyzed Programs tab and rest assured that when you uninstall the program every associated file will be included. The search box for finding specific programs and the capability to get rid of temporary files are nice additions to this free program.
ZSoft Uninstaller works well, although it's not as robust as some other free uninstallers out there. Even though it may not have all the chrome of the competition, when it comes to getting its core task done--uninstalling unwanted apps--ZSoft Uninstaller is a good choice.
ZSoft Uninstaller is the better and easier way to uninstall programs on your computer. ZSoft Uninstaller can be used as a Add/Remove applet replacement, but not only that, it can also e.g. analyze an installation so it can be completely uninstalled (also supports reboots of the computer as the process is split into two: Before and after the installation), find uninstall-leftovers, cleanup in the programs starting with your computer at startup, find and delete temporary files, find and delete empty folders, delete entry's from programs that is no longer installed, hide Windows Updates, hide entries from the list that you are never going to uninstall (drivers etc.) making the list smaller and therefore easier to manage, show more information than available though add/remove, automatically find entry's from programs that are most likely already uninstalled, automatically find entry's that are considered "crap-ware" & (off course) search the list of installed software.
