Write a Review

There are many blocked paid features.

This program is perfect if you need only remove function. It also has a friendly and nice interface. I really like it. No, there are many additional features, but they are locked and are available in the paid version only. I do not like, that some features are available as free in its competitors (like “Install Monitor” in “Soft Organizer”), but Iobit wants money for similar features… I am pleased with its work but disappointed by a huge list of features that are available only in the paid version without a chance to try them for free.

Pros:

  • Free version.

CONS:

  • Too poor free version.

The best and free all-round uninstall utility by far

Delivers what it says: uninstalls thoroughly, finally and for free. Have managed at last to uninstall programs that were hanging in my control panel since years, and couldn't get rid of them, now they are gone. Seemingly runs also a deep registry scan. Easy to use and free. Can only recommend it.

Pros:

  • Easily get rid of deep registry junks

CONS:

  • I have no complains about it so far

Iobit proves relevant in major system cleanup, especcially against stubborn malwares

IObit uninstaller does the whole registry cleaning process that other programs do, but the strength of this software for me is that it catches a lot of files left behind by other uninstallers, files that can often be hard to find manually such as those buried in your Users and Program Data and other directories. I haven't spent too much time with it yet, but I noticed Version 5 also brings new features like manual scanning and cleaning of invalid shortcuts and other residual files left behind by other uninstallers and Windows patches.

Pros:

  • New manual scanning feature with new update

CONS:

  • Scanning isn't thorough

Routinely creates a restore point for programs before uninstallation

I have been using this product for more than a year. I like the fact that it automatically creates a system restore point before it deletes an application. I like the fact that I can perform batch deletes. Had downloaded the new 5.0 version from the iolo website when I was told that a new version was available.

Pros:

  • Performs multible uninstalls

CONS:

  • Always prompts for new update

The ultimate uninstalling tool with powerful features

This is certainly a must-have Pc utility that comes with amazing features. It will help remove easily those stubborn programs that exist in most pc that just can't be gotten rid f with the conventional methods. You just can't uninstall them except if you try the force uninstall tool that comes with the IObit uninstaller. With it, all those Malicious software will be wiped out.

Pros:

  • Strong force uninstall feature

CONS:

  • Not perfect, but i'm satisfied with it so far

Userf-friendly, spontanous and efficient with each updates, but cost is higher than value

It is more intuitive than it's predecessors whether free OR Pro. Has a less dated aesthetic than the AVERAGE IU offerings. Benefits greatly from it's CLEARLY defined user skillset distinctions (from Luddite through to Geek & ALL points between). Seems a little expensive, especially in light of Windows offering similar functionality to the "Paid" version of UI5. A bit temperamental to use, if used in a hurry (this is ironed out however as soon as every action is performed more "DELIBERATELY")......it's usability is, therefore, more akin to The proverbial "TORTOISE" rather than "The Hare" but 100% effective none the less

Pros:

  • Packed with useful and easiy-to-understand features

CONS:

  • Expensive paid version

Finally, a free app that works

Got the job done. I have been searching everywhere, surfing the web for a free app to tidy my pc and I finally stumbled across Iobit uninstaller and figured why not give it a try. Because I have this stubborn app that just won't uninstall and the description says it uninstalls these particular apps and wouldn't you know... it worked!

Pros:

  • Free version works flawlessly

CONS:

  • None as of yet

Navigation is incredibly easy, and it does the job flawlessly

Very good at finding and erasing rogue registry entries and delete files that standard uninstall leaves behind. Especially like the sections such as 'recently installed apps' and 'large apps', which makes it quicker to find apps you want to delete

Pros:

  • User-friendly

CONS:

  • Need to be well integrated with Windows Uninstaller

Iobit uninstaller does a good job just like any other uninstaller

I have only used it a couple of times, but it seemed to work well when I tried it. I've also tried Wise Uninstaller and Revo uninstaller and they also seem to work well. The only drawback to this program is that it does a fair amount of tinkering with your system. My Anti-Virus (AVG) blocked it until I turned it off. For example, it embeds itself in the control panel programs and features page. Wise and Revo are much simpler in that way. You might wish to have more than one of these on your system since one program may be better than the other in getting rid of a difficult program.

Pros:

  • Easily uninstalls as intended

CONS:

  • Acts like an unwanted program

A good uninstaller with amazing features

I had a program seating among my program list that just won't conform to either e installed or removed. I surfed through the registry list but didn't find it anywhere. I ran IOBit Uninstaller, which also failed to uninstall the program. However, there was a forced uninstall feature listed, so I ran it. That uninstalled the program (Nero 7 Premium) and also cleaned all registry links. Perfect.

Pros:

  • powerful force uninstall features

CONS:

  • Don't always detect programs

A great uninstaller by Iobit

I stumbled on this software online and checked it on Amazon. It removes all the unwanted files that I have been trying to move for days and this works.[...]performance My laptop is running much faster than before and not slow at all.

Pros:

  • Removes unwanted files

CONS:

  • Does only simple uninstall tasks

Great value for free

This program is the best in my opinion. If you follow the prompts within it you shouldn't go wrong. It has allowed me to uninstall programs and files that other programs would not touch. I use this anytime that I need to uninstall something. It also allows for shredding files after deleting them. If you try it and follow the prompts, I think you'll find it more than worth the cost $0.00!

Pros:

  • File shredding features

CONS:

  • Free version has limited funtions

Iobit uninstaller is highly recommended for overall system maintenance

I have been using Iobit uninstaller for 3 years and have never had an issue with uninstalling a program or reboot issues. I have it on all of my PCs, including my new win10 laptop. It helps me uninstall the unwanted Windows apps easily and quickly which can be only uninstalled through Powershell. But the new UI is not nice as to the old version. Hope IObit will improve it next time. Anyway, I like it.

Pros:

  • Absense of uninstall or reboot issues

CONS:

  • downgraded user interface in new update

Seems to be the greatest but may turn out unexpectedly bad

I discovered this Free software on the internet, downloaded it, checked out the list of programs it offered to uninstall, click on it & it took 2 seconds to totally wipe it out. I was trying to do the same thing. Spent a week working around my problem & never did any good. I had a program called "VIPRE Internet Security " I wanted to remove. Microsoft Software kept telling me I could not Uninstall a program that was not installed, totally making their Program for the job I wanted to do useless. IObit will Flat FORCE AN UNINSTALL regardless what Microsoft says. I highly recommended IObit if you have a similar problem. It left no tracks or bits of data to cause me any other issues with my system.

Pros:

  • Force uninstall features

CONS:

  • May funtion incorrectly

Easily finds and removes tenacious malwares and bloats

I was able to find and uninstall a lingering anti-virus program which continually hassled me about renewing my subscription and was able to remove other challenging-to-find and cave-dwelling programs with ease. It is way more efficient than Windows "add/removes" tool.

Pros:

  • Deep scanning feature

CONS:

  • No drawbacks

Great uninstaller so far

This worked wonderfully for my over-filled junked up the computer. I was afraid that I would need to reformat to clear up space, but this software did a really fantastic job at removing unwanted programs. My computer is running faster now that all those programs that were starting up have been removed.

Pros:

  • Speeds up pc by removing startup clusters

CONS:

  • No cons at the moment

A good and free uninstall solution when you need it

Not long ago, I had loads of major issues with my PC, I tried to solve them by deleting the problem causing programs, but each time, they leave behind some remnant files. Then I decided to put IObit Uninstaller to the test, and it really proved itself to be a really good program. My PC is presently faster. With the powerfull scan, there are no files left. I highly endorse this program, It will save your PC a lot.

Pros:

  • Powerful system scanner

CONS:

  • I have no issues with it so far

Excellently handles the job and more

Portable app, simple and clear GUI, does "Forced" uninstall on software that isn't on the normal Windows installed program list, smart catorgorization of apps, lists windows updates separately, easy access to restore points. Not "bloatware"

  • Easy to use

Worked like a charm

It definitely works. I had a difficulty with TuneUp Utilities 2013, which was blitzing me with pop-ups about "One-click Start" starting in "compatibility mode" etc. No amount of internet search offered any real suggestions for fixing the issue. WORSE, the Windows10 Add/Remove function could not "uninstall" this program. It was bullet-proof in the wrong way. I downloaded the ilObit Uninstaller, and it WORKED. I promptly upgraded to Pro and paid the $25.00. If only I could get the four-plus hours back, I wasted trying to fix the problem myself.

Pros:

  • Uninstalls extremely stubborn programs

CONS:

  • Need a $25 upgrade

Safe and easy to navigate

What I like about IObit uninstaller is that it's completely free, doesn't require installation, minimal file size, nice and simple interface, and it includes some fantastic features like Force uninstall list/icon mode, and even Windows Update is included. However, the thing I don't like (might change in the next update) is that when they are multiple programs to uninstall, it might freeze up.

Pros:

  • Force uninstall feature

CONS:

  • Multiple program uninstallation freezes the application

A very good uninstall solution. Simple and efficient

IObit Uninstaller is easy to use but always double-check and make sure you know what you're uninstalling. Although, it gives the option to create a restore point before uninstalling in case of a mistake. Not only uninstall; it also will shred files if you choose. Beautiful format, easy on the eyes. It allows me to mess with areas I have no business messing with (registry items). Many of the files are questionable as to what to do with (uninstall or leave alone). There are too many areas that are better equipped for a tech-savvy person. Tips and suggestions would be an excellent idea

Pros:

  • Sets restore points

CONS:

  • Not very user-friendly

If you make use of the conventional windows uninstaller and remnant is left behind it will pop up and tell you there are junk files left behind and ask if you would like to remove them. Works well-uninstalling programs, easy to understand and use.

  • Junk file pop-up notification

The number 1 free and complete uninstaller by a wide margin

Iobit is undoubtedly the best uninstaller highly recommended for you. It does perform a deep scan to fish-out and eliminates leftovers. Geek uninstaller comes in 2nd place in my opinion. Revo Uninstaller free version is good as well, but it's definitely lagging behind since it was last updated in 2013, and secondly, it doesn't support 64-bit programs. It seems they placed all their resource in their premium version and abandoned the free version. There are definitely other uninstallers that of course can do the same uninstallation, but if you want a thorough uninstallation, then Iobit is what you need. Do give it a try. Enjoy!

Pros:

  • Deep scanning for leftovers

CONS:

  • No cons in my opinion

New version displays ads for other products

Very good uninstaller. The batch uninstall feature is especially nice. Unfortunately, the latest version flashes nag screens to buy other products, even when you're not using the application. That's a deal breaker in my view.

Pros:

  • Great batch uninstall feature

CONS:

  • Unwanted sales ads pop-ups

IObit uninstaller is not all that perfect

I agree that it has an attractive UI. And very effective when all was said and done. But Earlier reviewers repeatedly called this program "simple" - I beg to differ. Too many options. Standard Uninstall, Advanced Uninstall, and Forced Uninstall, etc. But the distinctions not well documented.

Pros:

  • Attractive user interface

CONS:

  • Features are confusing to understand

Surprisingly okay so far

I made the mistake of downloading Avast (total disaster). Did a little research to find a good cleaner. This cleaner was surprisingly good. Not only installed a stubborn program "fix it" that downloaded with Avast, that would not uninstall through conventional (windows) means. This program not only uninstalled the program but also entirely removed from the registry and any other location it found on my computer. With this and 360 from Qihoo, my system, which isn't even a year old, is now running like it first did.

Pros:

  • Removes registry uninstall leftovers

CONS:

  • Works with another program

Not the best but does a great job

While it's still not what I would call as good as a couple of others, it's good enough to be a 5 and for free. It actually uninstalls software programs speedingly and easily clean out leftover data without any issues. Has a forced uninstall as well. It's interface is smooth, easy to understand. No install runs right off the .exe.

Pros:

  • Slick and user-friendly interface and features

Good software gone really Bad

I would say this used to be a great program. But I turned on my laptop this morning and found a popup ad on the screen. I really panicked. Thought I had a virus. I found out by using Revo Uninstaller's "Hunter Mode" (ironically Revo is a very similar competitor to Iobit Uninstaller) that the popup belonged to Iobit Uninstaller. If I already decided to rate it a five star, this disturbance wouldn't agree with my decision. BUT then when I dismissed the popup by clicking "Close," it launched my browser and took me to the website anyway! Wouldn't give it any stars with this behavior. Any star rating that appears is because of Snapfiles review system awarding them based on my honest answers about Interface, Ease of Use, etc

Pros:

  • Removes programs completely as intended

CONS:

  • Free version comes with unwanted ads

An unnstaller that act as a marketing tool for the company's other products.

If you are not a gamer, then it is a great application to use. It's pretty easy to install & understand, and constantly seems to try to make me install the other applications by the same company, and even installed a few in the background without my knowledge which is why I zapped it. I hate it when something does something on my computer without my permission.

Pros:

  • Doesn't require much to install

CONS:

  • Pops-up annoying sales ads
