Pros

Useful organization: Uninstaller categorizes your installed apps into several tiers: Recently installed, Large programs, Infrequently used, and Windows Updates. These are often the main criteria that most users would follow to justify removing apps.

Batch uninstallation: You can queue up uninstallations for multiple applications, something glaringly absent from the traditional Windows control panel. Though it's not an automated procedure, nor is it a simultaneous uninstaller, the Batch Uninstaller works as listed and is one of the most useful features of IOBit Uninstaller 3.

Cons

Not in real time: If IOBit Uninstaller is currently running and you install a new program, the Programs list will not refresh. This requires you to restart the program for the most up-to-date list of applications.

Final Verdict:

IOBit Uninstaller 3 is a lightweight uninstaller with some useful tools that give it an edge over the default Windows uninstaller. Batch uninstallation and its remnant removal tools are probably the application's biggest advantage, but overall we found this program to be most useful for those who have high volumes of applications and programs installed. We recommend this app if your computer is in need of a slimming down or if you're planning to do some fall freshening of your Windows machine.

Developer's Description

IObit Uninstaller is a perfect uninstall tool. It provides an easy and secure way to thoroughly remove unwanted programs, Windows Apps, Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps, and malicious/ad browser extensions, giving you a clean PC and a secure & smooth online surfing experience.

The wonderful features in IObit Uninstaller are: Bundleware, Stubborn Programs Remover, Force Uninstall+, Install Monitor, and Software Health.

As the first uninstall utility that comes up with the idea of bundleware removal, IObit Uninstaller has advanced algorithms to detect bundleware when it is just installed, which allows users to uninstall all unwanted bundleware conveniently and timely. Unique Stubborn Program Remover database supports removing 1000+ stubborn programs and ensures all leftovers to be removed thoroughly from the computer just like they've never existed. Force Uninstall+ helps you uninstall programs that cannot be uninstalled in a routine way due to missing uninstall registries or built-in uninstaller errors, and clean all related files easily. Real-time Install Monitor supports logging startups, system services, scheduled tasks, DLL registration, and more other items created during the installation process for future thorough uninstall of the program. Software Health gives users power to manage hidden software permissions, block disturbing popup notifications, clean unneeded setup files, and remove malicious software & browser extensions, which makes all your software run smoother and also reduces security risks.

IObit Uninstaller also supports rating Windows apps, which helps users make a wiser decision when they want to remove unwanted Windows Apps. What’s more, the optimized Software Updater now supports updating more popular programs, like AnyDesk, Calibre, Discord, LibreOffice, and qBittorrent.

All in all, IObit Uninstaller is an all-in-one uninstall utility to uninstall programs, bundleware, browser extensions, and Windows Apps for a clean and safe PC.
