Revo Uninstaller Pro review

Millions of users delete files from PCs/devices everyday, due to low hard disk space, unused files, games, and plenty of other reasons. However, often we are doing it improperly. Leftover junk files may cause errors, spontaneous shutdowns, overheating. To combat this, tech developers produce special software that helps maintain a PC in good condition and deletes files correctly and completely. These are called uninstallers, one of which we’ll review today.

Revo Uninstaller 4.2.3 is a utility that provides users with a powerful and easy-to-use tool for cleaning and optimizing Microsoft Windows 32 and 64-bit operating systems. Revo Uninstaller has an advanced scanning algorithm for the system before and after installation, and allows you to delete files, folders, and registry keys left after uninstalling the program.

The program also helps to prevent cases where after the program has been uninstalled there are messages that some files could not be deleted and must be deleted manually. Such residual folders, files, registry entries, and other program components not only take up space, but can significantly reduce the system performance and even cause system crashes.

Specifications:

VendorVS Revo Group
Latest version4.2.3 (March 2020)
OSMicrosoft Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP

The program is available in three versions (Free, Pro and Pro Portable), which differ in functionality. The longer subscription you buy, the lower is the cost.

Revo Free: scanning for leftovers after standard uninstall, 8 additional cleaning tools, technical support, uninstall Windows apps.

Revo Pro: Free version + delete browser extensions, forced uninstall, quick/multiple uninstall, extended scanning, real-time system monitoring, logs, backup system.

Revo Portable: Pro version + unlimited number of devices/computers, use anywhere on a USB stick. A quick visual introduction in a video below.

UninstallerFirst runs the uninstaller and then scans for stubborn leftovers, temporary files, unnecessary data.
Forced uninstallAssists with partially installed programs, erroneous uninstallation, and disguised programs.
Multiple uninstallRemoves several programs in a row, performs automatic scan for leftovers and deletes everything by default.
Real-time monitorTracks activities during installations, collects data to a log, can revert changes if needed.
Windows appsLess frustration by uninstalling it just like any other app, including leftovers.
Browser extensionsRemove all extensions / add-ons from a single window. Supported browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Edge, Opera.
LogsDatabase of logs from real-time monitoring, stored on Revo server, users can import / export logs.
Backup systemCreates a restore point and a registry backup before each uninstallation, plus an option to create a backup once a day.
Hunter modeA targeting icon to drop over a program and select action (uninstall, kill process, open folder).
Cleaning toolsAutorun manager, junk files, history cleaner, erase confidential data, unrecoverable delete, etc.

When comparing to similar software, we see that Revo Uninstaller is about the same price range, has a trial period, samed basic features. The difference lies in a user-friendly interface, useful extra features, amount of interface languages, and proper support. Vendor clearly ties his best in helping users through manuals, FAQs, video tutorials, screenshots, logs.On the other hand, it does not offer registry issues fixing. 

Install and activate. There are two activation options in the sign up box: by file and online. The developers have thought in advance about the comfort of inexperienced users, so you can read the extended activation instructions in an email. After activating, we recommend to go immediately to the Auto Update menu just below the settings, and enable the automatic mode. A fresh version of the program always provides faster and better performance.

The whole program can be divided into three sections: Uninstall, Tools, Settings. Additionally, there is a Description panel at the bottom of each menu, allowing you to see the features of the section and to read the guidelines.

The key section compiling all the applications installed on a device, the total number is stated in the bottom left. Displaying recently installed programs (as New) section is very convenient when a lot of software and various components appear.

Revo Uninstaller Pro review

The essence of this menu is very simple: select unwanted programs and uninstall them (big Uninstall button on the left). However, this is not a regular removal, but a special one. Let’s try to remove CCleaner. Clicking on it, we immediately have a bunch of information about the program: name, manufacturer, size and version, installation date.

Another advantage: the program notifies us that it has a special removal script that provides the best cleanup. However, we press No and see what happens instead: registry backup, system restore point, and then standard uninstallation. 

Scanning has three modes to choose from:

  1. Safe - additional search in the registry.
  2. Moderate - includes Safe mode and additional search for remnants.
  3. Advanced - the most thorough, including an in-depth search of all program-related entries.

We performed all three removal scenarios and got the following results:

SafeModerateAdvanced
Registry scanning speed (seconds)1511
Entries found in the registry 657696
Residual files 444
Residual folders001

Concluding the test, we recommend that you always use the advanced method of uninstalling programs, as it takes not much more time but cleans a PC better. There are also many features for advanced users, i.e. Forced Uninstall, Windows Apps, Logs Database, and more. They are less often in use, yet may become useful at any moment.

Also, we would like to highlight the Browser Extensions menu, where you can conveniently track, delete, view information, and export all browser extensions on a PC in a file. And one more tool just to mention (more info in a chapter below) is Hunting Mode, which is a kind of gamification element, allowing users to virtually aim at a program on desktop and “kill” it. This probably will be ideal for people with cluttered desktops.

This is where Revo goes beyond a plain Uninstaller.

Revo Uninstaller tools

Autorun Manager is responsible for speeding up the operating system by shutting down unnecessary programs. Revo automatically exposes those processes that slow down the system. We recommend previewing what programs and processes Revo has identified as not needed to avoid shutting down the ones you use all the time.

Junk Files Cleaner allows you to find and delete different types of junk and leftover files from the system. Select the desired drives and click Scan. The complete process takes about 3 minutes, after which we see a list of all the unwanted files. Click Delete and in a few seconds the files are gone. Additionally: often not all files are deleted at the end of the process. This is normal, they are system files or currently in use. Skip them.

Windows Tools - these are standard Windows features that are compiled into one section for convenience. It's essentially nothing new, but being able to control your PC with one program is a definite plus.

Windows tools:

  1. Network information
  2. Security center
  3. System properties
  4. System information
  5. TCP/IP netstat command
  6. On screen keyboard
  7. Disk defragmenter
  8. Services
  9. Shared folders
  10. Group policy
  11. Windows components
  12. MWMS removal tool
  13. Backup & Restore
  14. Task scheduler
  15. Check disk
  16. System file checker
  17. Disk cleanup
  18. Resource monitor
  19. System restore

History Cleaner is a multitool designed to clean up hard disk space and ensure privacy at the same time. You can clear the history of browsers, Microsoft Office, or any application from the OS in a matter of seconds with a single button. Full cleaning takes about 12 seconds. No report (how many and what files of what size were deleted) is issued by the section, which is a bummer.

Revo Uninstaller review 2020

Evidence Remover. When you empty the recycle bin, your files and folders are only marked as deleted, but they are not physically deleted. This tool will permanently erase files and folders that have already been deleted but remain physically on your drive. It does not matter which tool you or someone else will use to recover the data, the result will always be the same - the data erased with this tool cannot be restored. Note that the Evidence Remover process takes about 30 minutes, but no additional load on the computer resources has been detected, so the program can be used in the background mode.

Unrecoverable Delete works easier: select the needed files, make sure you select them correctly, and click Delete forever. It feels like erasing takes a bit longer than normal deletion, but this is best for space saving or privacy. Files cannot be restored.

Backup Manager allows you to safely use Revo. In general, if you need to uninstall the program, backup it before uninstalling. Something went wrong while deleting? Go to Backup Manager and restore everything as it was before.

Revo backup

Select a backup and click Restore. The whole process takes less than a second, the program and the corresponding registry entries have been successfully restored, but the desktop shortcut has not been restored and will have to be done manually.

In terms of settings, Revo is shining - clear structuring, more than 40 available interface languages, 9 built-in color themes, and the ability to choose custom background color. We should also note that in the Free version of the program the interface is a bit different (header and structure), but still is easy for perception.

Revo Uninstaller how to use

Depending on experience and special tasks, you can customize anything - from basic settings, like automatic updates, to advanced nuances of individual features of the application. Below the Settings button, you can find the Support section. We recommend reading help materials, user guides and FAQs first, of course. Then, if you have not found the answer to the issue, contact Revo developers. Support is provided for the free version equally.

Revo delivers and surprises: it is a multifunctional program with lots of features. It brings together useful uninstall options and a user-friendly interface. It is clearly one of the best tools in its price range and market segment. It works really fast and smoothly, no bugs, no lags. The ability to scan for registry errors and broken entries would be a nice addition, and maybe it will emerge in future updates.

Revo Uninstaller pros and cons:

Name of product Pros

  • Really fast performance 
  • Modern interface with customization options
  • Wide range of additional functionality
  • Not consuming many system resources
  • Helpful tech support

Name of product Cons

    The best of what is available

    Concentrating on the Pro rather than the Con, I have been using Revo for approx 2 years and it has never failed to deliver on what it promises. I have tried Advance Uninstaller Pro but found it too cumbersome and not as thorough so uninstalled it, using Revo.

    Unbeatably the best uninstall solution for pc

    I have managed this for several years. it is astounding what those sneaky programs you uninstall leave behind. Revo tidies up after them so they are fully gone when you want them to be.

    The best and only uninstall and system maintenance solution present

    I`ve used this for years, first on XP and now on Win7. I have had no problems at all, and plan to use this for as long as I can. The only problem for Revo is: I can`t understand why I would want to upgrade to the "Pro" version. (Although come to think of it, I think I will, as a reward for creating a great free program that I`ve used many times.)
    • Pros
      • Works on Winxp and Windows 10
    • Cons
      • Pro version is unneccessary

    A major waste of time

    Revo could only find 81 programs, your uninstaller 86, windows own uninstaller 119 and wise uninstaller 121. I have used Revo for about a year now. But was frustrated that it wouldn`t even list newly installed programs!!!!! So I searched and found wise uninstaller instead. It is so much better than Revo and it finds all of my programs;]

    Best uninstaller by far

    I tried to remove a particular mainstream music consumer and all its files. Deep scanning which allows for detection of hidden files. User-friendly and completely easy to use. Works well with Windows-based PC`s. Free 30-day free trial. Creates a system restore and back up as a precaution. Was able to uninstall itself after use was over.
    • Pros
      • Can uninstall itself afterwards
    • Cons
      • No problems so far

    I fail to see what all the fuss is all about. Have a look at your C:\users\****\Application Data\ after using Revo uninstaller. It is still full of files and folders of uninstalled software. I can not believe all the positive reviews.

    My windows uninstall solution was lacking bad when it comes to removing an unwanted program it got infected with. I stumbled on Revo uninstaller when surfing the web for an answer.

    Works extremely well.

    Revo uninstaller does an excellent job where other uninstallers have failed. It comes packed with essential features that can seamlessly get rid of system clusters, especially rigorous programs that eludes the system`s inbuilt windows uninstaller. It has an in-depth search feature that scans for before and after uninstalls process, making it easier to identify and remove file remnants.

    The perfect all-in-one uninstall solution

    I am intrigued by the effectiveness of the free version, but with the paid pro version, I must say I am delighted. Mainly because of its ability to quickly get rid of 64-bit programs, which easily makes Revo the best over-all system uninstaller.

    It is the best among all uninstallers

    Highly recommended and simply the best! Was able to get rid of additional files and registry entries installed by its counterpart Iobit Uninstaller. Revo Uninstaller has multiple varying scanning modes depending on need, and it quickly finds unwanted files left behind by other uninstallers which are embedded deep in the system registry. Even though I have another backup uninstaller, Revo uninstaller is undoubtfully my number one.
    • Pros
      • Have multiple features for proper uninstall

    The best free uninstaller required for major uninstallation of unwanted files other uninstaller coannot remove.

    Revo has its weight in gold as far as being free uninstallers. Revo comes with a sleek user interface, and multiple uninstall tools and levels. The Advanced uninstall level is a highly convenient feature that I often use a lot, which is both easy to use and highly effective. And surprisingly, there hasn`t been any occasion of a glitch. The one thing that comes only with the paid version though is the force uninstall feature which will easily crown Revo as the ultimate pc companion.
    • Pros
      • Has a user-friendly interface with many uninstall features
    • Cons
      • Force uninstall only available to paid versions

    Does all that is required easily

    Revo Uninstaller is one of the best, and I highly recommend it. Although, when making multiple uninstallations, try to make sure you uncheck the box that indicates creating a restore point, so it doesn`t have to create a restore point for each program one after the other, so as not to consume time.
    • Pros
      • Easily does everything needed

    Excellent freeware uninstaller

    I was forced to install a toolbar which got included in another application I was installing. Then after, I tried to get rid of the toolbar, which I did, but I realized it let a suspicious "searchsetting.exe program that was always running. I later found Revo uninstaller from Snapfiles, after trying other means. After I ran Revo, I got a surprising result as it quickly removed in seconds what I couldn`t get rid of in hours. The best part of Revo is that it is free of charge.

    A definite keeper

    Does a decent job at removing headstrong scraps from unfinished or inaccurate uninstalls. It seeks out extra registry keys and erases those too with approval from the user. I conclude by saying that Revo Uninstaller is an excellent piece of software.
    • Pros
      • Complete incomplete uninstallations
    • Cons
      • May need suport for advance features

    Really Good but need support

    Revo uninstaller encounters some errors now and then with programs that need a reboot for complete removal. It sometimes freezes during the uninstall process, when you click to restart later, and when you chose the option to restart now, it sometimes doesn`t correctly remove the leftover.
    • Pros
      • Works as intended
    • Cons
      • Have some reboot issues

    Effective and convenient

    Revo has an amazing junk file scanning feature that has worked flawlessly in keeping my XP free and fast. I highly recommend Revo uninstaller because compare to other like CCleaner, Revo provide options to be able to effectively target unwanted files that slows the pc.
    • Pros
      • Highly effective for junk files and additional target programs

    excellent system saving uninstaller.

    I had a challenging issue with uninstallation once, when I had to update an application on my pc that required a complete uninstallation of the old version of the program; otherwise, the update will not proceed. So, I tried several means but all to no avail, until I finally tried Revo uninstaller and voila! Just like that, it got removed in seconds, and the update installed. Big thumb up to the developers!

    the most effective free uninstaller by far

    I was trying to get rid of Adobe reader application from my pc but the programs uninstaller was proving useless, giving an error message each time. I tried using Revo uninstaller and surprisingly, it easily got rid of the the junks, allowing me to properly reinstall Adobe reader. Unlike other uninstaller, Revo is the only one that effectivly fixes everything completely without asking for anything.
    • Pros
      • Get the most out of the free version
    • Cons
      • multiple uninstall only with the paid version

    A fast, free , and efficient uninstall tool

    I previously used a fast uninstaller caller Safrap for all my installation process, but then i discover Revo, that it is not just fast as well, but capable of cleaning up associated registry entries. You never know, a minor download from the internet can leave behind some major registry entries. Revo is an excellent freeware package.
    • Pros
      • Advanced and deep uninstallation
    • Cons
      • more useful and advanced features comes with only the paid version

    More than an uninstall tool

    Uninstaller` wouldn`t be the right name to fit Revo, seeing that it does more than just uninstalling programs. This piece of software comes packed with features like a startup manager, a system scanner and cleaner, and other useful system tools. The interface can be a little bit confusing, but still, it not hard to figure out. I`ll conclude by saying that Revo is a brilliant piece of software.
    • Pros
      • Great set of system cleaning tools and features
    • Cons
      • unlock full potential with paid version

    A must-have free tool for pc users

    Revo uninstaller is undoubtedly a must-have piece of software which I highly recommend in comparison to others out there. It easily supersedes the native Windows uninstall tool, and eliminates even the most headstrong or poorly built program installed on a windows pc. My best regards and a big thumbs up to all who have come together to make this freeware possible!
    • Pros
      • High functionality with the free version
    • Cons
      • All features not full understood

    Good locator but not not so good uninstaller

    There was a program on my control panel I couldn`t get rid of because it didn`t come with its uninstaller. I made use of Revo uninstaller to locate this particular program and clicked to get it uninstalled, but I received a similar message I always get when I used the system uninstaller which is that the program uninstaller cannot be located. Not very useful if it can`t uninstall a program that didn`t come with its uninstaller. I initially thought Revo would force-install it anyways, but I was wrong.
    • Pros
      • Easy and Fast download, with user-friendly interface.
    • Cons
      • Doesn`t uninstall all located programs

    Works fine but free version is gradually becoming obsolate

    Long ago when PCs were based on 32-bit programs, Revo uninstaller free version would be the number one, but as technology advances to 64-bit based systems, the free version of Revo uninstaller is rapidly becoming useless. The free version is only able to detect and remove 32-bit programs, whereas, that is now only less than 30% of current system programs. I will quickly opt for the pro version but it seems too expensive. Besides, I have good result using the free Geek uninstaller even though the interface is lacking compared to Revo, especially making it difficult to see when working on making changes to my computer. But still it is free, and it works for me.
    • Pros
      • Free version is excellent 32bit program detector and uninstaller
    • Cons
      • Pro version price to high

    The best uninstall product by far

    Had the paid version installed on my old PC which I utilized for a couple of years. But after I got my new PC, I moved everything to it and initiated Revo, but I was prompted with the message to reactivate. I tried activation and it failed, then i sent an email to the support team which surprisingly they replied within an hour and solved the problem. A big thumbs up to the support team! Best so far.
    • Pros

    Complete tool to get rid of difficult hard-to-detect programs

    I am super excited to be able to use Revo to easily get rid of programs that otherwise prove challenging to remove with the regular Windows uninstaller. I`ll like to say also that you watch out for Oracle programs. They are the most difficult to uninstall.

    Free thorough uninstaller

    The Revo uninstaller is simple to use, surprisingly thorough and hinged with a fluid interface. The best part is that it is free, and also free to try the pro version for 30 days. I have used this piece of software for many years. Leftover data are removed with the CCleaner free version, although the Hunter option has never worked for me. I think the hunter mode requires the program to come with its own built-in uninstaller.
    • Pros
      • Pro version not really needed
    • Cons
      • Hunter option not functional

    It`s a good freeware but not the best

    It`s advisable to try new software before you think of buying it. As Rocky said, "Go for it." But eventually, I got rid of the software, which wasn`t a simple task and went for another one more faster and free as well.
    • Pros

    Good program, works better than the windows uninstaller, can get rid of pesky programs that won`t be removed.

    I accidentally allowed some adware and bloatware into my PC when installing some weird software. It was a pain to get them out with my regular uninstaller. It was just impossible until I tried Revo uninstaller and, Voila!, all gone! Thanks, Cnet! As far as a Con, none to be spoken of.

    The paid version is where the software shines

    The Revo Uninstaller does an excellent job for amateur, but also, it leaves a heap of junk files and registry entries. If you desire a complete and proper uninstallation, it is better to make use of the Window`s uninstaller using the target application tool along with the `search everything registry manager. I personally use the Registry Manager. Or better still, you can get the Revo uninstaller paid version which comes with the full package and does a better job than that for the free version.
    • Pros
      • does a decent job for a free version
    • Cons
      • Need pro version for major functionalities

    I had an accumulated a few files Windows wouldn`t let me delete because it didn`t recognize the files or needed to know where they came from, etc. Revo cleaned them right out - including the aggravating files left over on my uninstall of WebCamMax (I`m heading back to that review board next!).

    Free version is perfect if you have a 32 bits pc

    I noticed lately, however, that with my newest laptop, operating on a 64 bit Windows 7, Revo Free 1.93 does not list all programs. Bit of Googling and I discovered that although 1.39 is compatible, it will not display 64-big software. So it`s potentially useless for a lot of software.
    • Pros
      • Free version does a bit better than the windows uninstall
    • Cons

    The most complete system cleaner

    Perhaps I think Revo uninstaller may be a little too thorough in its cleanup process although I wouldn`t want point blame. My system afterward wouldn`t reboot the uninstallation and reinstallation of Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Air, and Adobe Reader. Reboot failed and it went into a prolong repair mode which scared me, but the repair was successful.

    Best free version uninstaller ever

    The Revo Uninstaller has a good interface, with nice big icons of installed programs. I have used this uninstaller for a while, and it does completely uninstall programs, this one is as good as uninstallers that you have to pay for. It is not fast loading installed programs, but it will load faster. By clicking on options, then click uninstaller, and check to enable fast loading mode.

    Not so good on windows 8

    I have made use of Revo for many years now with great success. I recently switched to windows 8 and it is less than perfect here. It doesn`t show all of the installed programs and with the ones, it does show when it gets to the part after the initial uninstall where it is looking for remnants of the program it locks up on that screen. I used it all os thru windows 7 without similar problems.

    Have you ever been denied access to uninstall a program by the program you are trying to uninstall? No problem with Revo it is the Boss when Revo goes to uninstall it takes control running or not it kills the program and it uninstalls It. Most uninstallers leave a footprint of the old files so it can reinstall again. And unwanted icons behind to clutter the system. I have only used the Free version and it is a Kick-Ass powerhouse. Have you ever uninstalled a program and a few days or weeks later it shows back up? Not with Revo. Take my word for it. There is no coming back.

    So simple even a novice can figure it out Gets the task of uninstalling done, including deleting hidden files. Much more in-depth than the Windows Add/Remove program, but also teases you with all the other excellent features you can`t do unless you buy the Pro version. On occasion, there were programs it didn`t pick up If you are interrupted in the middle of an uninstall, there might be remnants of it left on the computer

    It does the job perfectly

    Sets a restore point automatically before anything else is done. You have four options for the extent of Remove. When the application`s uninstaller, Revco lets it go ahead and uninstall their way. Then Revco continues, and you can delete (or not) the registry stragglers. Then you know that the uninstalled is complete. I use on any program I want to uninstall. I don`t trust the program`s uninstaller because there are almost always registry items left behind. Also, I noticed that a tech support person also used Revco to uninstall files.

      • Automatically set Restore points

    It is probably the best free uninstall program overall; others come close, but I think this is the best.

    If Revo lists the program, it uninstalls it quite well by using the program`s uninstall command and then by searching for fragments of the program, to the settings set by the user; of course one should always set a restore point because, in the end, it is the user who decides what to delete after the initial uninstall.
    • Pros
      • Search for other fragments of uninstall program and sets restore points

    Essential addition to systems maintenance

    This program doesn`t waste time guessing. It goes after all unwanted junk files customarily left behind by the Add and Removes Programs command. It gives a plan it`s own chance to remove itself, then goes in and sweeps up the debris. As with any program that works with the insides of an operating system, proceed only after reading directions and when in doubt uncheck an option to delete. Can`t imagine how we ever lived without it.

    Very easy to get rid of programs that has no uninstaller

    Got so excited about it I spelled EVERY wrong, believe me when I say this, is the best so far. It does need some tweaking for more stubborn hangs in backlogged files, that it won,t uninstall for you and putting the burner on won`t even do it. I have confidence they will read this and get a handle on it.

    Very good but not perfect

    Appears to get rid of everything, including files and folders sometimes left over when using Windows built-in uninstaller. But occasionally it throws up registry entries that look as though they are associated with the program being uninstalled for manual confirmation that they should be deleted, but there doesn`t seem to be a method of ensuring they are before selecting `delete them.` It would be nice to have an uninstaller program that automatically deletes such entries without putting the onus on the user.

      • seem to do a perfect job being a free version

    I think it is a great clean up program

    I utilize the removal tool for Norton, but for every other uninstall procedures, I use Revo uninstaller. Many programs out there don`t perform a complete cleanup after uninstallations: most notably the registry and AppData folder in the Windows Vista. Revo completely takes care of all that and even creates a restoration point before initiating the uninstall process just in case. This is an Advance mode feature though. And overall I think its a great piece of software.

      • Does a complete clean up of registry

    Doesn`t give any negative after-effect

    Maybe for more than a decade (I don`t keep track), this has been my favorite uninstaller. I like that it shows exactly what you will clean up if you decide to delete the residue left by a program. I`ve never experienced negative after-effects from a Revo uninstall.

    A very good system tool

    Choice one, it is July 2018 and I am using it since about 2015, it acts as registry cleaner too i.e. after uninstalling a program it scans for leftover registry items and suggests to clean it that one can select to act.
    • Pros
      • Act as a pc registry scaner and cleaner
    • Cons
      • None

    Highly recommended for all pc users

    This is an excellent, well-supported piece of software which caters both for the novice PC user and for the more knowledgeable. Plenty of checks and balances so that you don`t mess up your registry but enough flexibility to allow you to thoroughly remove programs that like to leave annoying remains on your PC.
    • Pros
      • Very user-friendly and easy to use features
    • Cons
      • No cons at the moment

    A system saver from ghost programs

    I was trying to understand out why there was an unnamed program in my apps list today that couldn`t be uninstalled. No directory existed, my trash bin was empty, and this program was "claiming" almost 8GB on my primary drive. After running a virus scan that turned up empty and digging around on the internet for how to remove a non-existent folder/program, I found Revo Uninstaller. Revo couldn`t find it either, but after a failed uninstall, it dug through my registry and found 11 entries that were still there. After it deleted them for me, I checked my app list again and it was gone! So if you`ve got a ghost program that`s floating around in your app list, I`d definitely recommend Revo Uninstaller!
    • Pros
      • Deep scan into system registry
    • Cons
      • Free version may face some chalenges from time to time

    I have tried many uninstallers but this is simply the best!

    There is so much to say about Revo uninstaller. It`s the only uninstaller that does an excellent job, in my opinion, and keeps me coming back to it. Among other uninstallers I have, Revo is undeniably my number one. It is Efficient, thorough, and easy to use. And the best part is that it is free, though I might opt for the pro version soon.
    • Pros
      • Fast and free uninstall solution
    • Cons
      • Advance features comes only with the paid version

    The best free and efficient uninstaller

    Revo uninstaller easily wins the competition for the best uninstaller. Also, I think it is undeniably the best free uninstaller that that makes uninstallation a fluid process, removing leftovers and keep the system clean.
    • Pros
      • Free version better than other paid uninstaller
    • Cons
      • Advance uninstall comes with only the paid version

    Best freeware uninstall tool in the market

    Being a freeware is an advantage, although you may not find it on the vs. Revo website anymore. The free version 1.95 can be set up to eliminate unwanted files. It has a thorough uninstall feature that surprisingly gets rid of unwanted data that lurk around as it promises. And apparently, it can also remove, system`s update, but this is one area you need to observe caution. Don`t allow it to delete some useful system files. Try to make use of the settings, and also it will be advisable as well to go for the paid version which i owned a paid release of the 2011 and 13 edition, but none of the licenses works anymore. The final advice is that you pay attention to the options before use.
    • Pros
      • Thorough uninstall function in free version
    • Cons
      • Need support for settings

    5 out of 5 on this freeware

    I am a gamer, and test beta`s quite often, SOME, not all like to slip in extra programs or do not give you the ability to uninstall. This program took care of that! Works great ! 2 modes MENU and HUNTER. HUNTER is for applications that won`t appear in the menu. Drag target icon to program and right click it for an option to begin to delete! Easy, Simple, and VERY EFFECTIVE.
    • Pros
      • Simple and extremely effective hunter mode
    • Cons
      • No complaints

    Not all that great like people claim

    Though I have Revo installed, I don`t use it in software uninstallations. It holds some other beneficial tools on it that I prefer, chiefly the autorun manager. The uninstaller isn`t much, all it does is invoke the Windows, or the programs own uninstaller, then it says it`s doing a scan for leftovers, most of which would be gone after a reboot anyway. I would not recommend Revo to uninstall software as complex as NIS or NAV, or any other AV or security suite. After software uninstallation, I usually clean up using JV16 PowerTools, but it`s not for novices. After removing software with Revo, you can always find plenty of remnants with JV16.
    • Pros
      • Scans for left over
    • Cons
      • still uses pc`s own uninstaller

    Almost perfect uninstall tool

    Revo uninstaller has proven multiple times to be a pc life saver amongst other uninstallers. The software keeps getting updated, and with every update, it gets better and better and only needs caution when deleting registry files because it can be tricky as it doesn`t give enough information as to what it is doing. It is more than capable of removing programs that don`t come with their uninstaller.
    • Pros
      • Capable of uninstalling difficult programs
    • Cons
      • Can also unistall wanted files and programs

    A thorough registry cleaning software

    Revo is a fast, effective and thorough system uninstalling too that easily get rid of remnant junks left behind by only running the uninstaller that comes with the program. Revo was able to track down a hp image program called "Overlooked" 2600 registry keys that kept running after i tried uninstalling it with its own uninstaller. It`s hard to imagine how much junks other programs leave behind after attempt uninstallation. But they can`t hide from Revo.
    • Pros
      • has a hunter feature that track down deep unwanted files in registry
    • Cons
      • Cannot uniinstall windows files in free version

    Revo uninstaller can make your pc run faster

    It works like a charm every time even if it has to make use of the program`s uninstaller that you want to remove that leaves behind little files in the registry. Those files in the registry can significantly slow down the PC`s performance, but Revo can get rid of them. It runs the program`s uninstaller first, and after the initial uninstall, the PC may ask to restart the program. It is advisable to choose the restart later option so that Revo can altogether remove the unwanted files, and after that, you can restart.
    • Pros
      • Perfect for registry cleanup
    • Cons
      • None so far

    It is an all-in- on uninstall tool for 32 bit based applications

    In line with what others have said about Revo uninstaller, I agree that Revo is an excellent uninstall tool, and maybe the only decent freeware, but it seems that the free version is only limited to the 32-bit based application, which presumably is just 85% of all software. The Hunter mode is one feature I will advise to be cautious with, as it has detected in some cases wrong files that may lurk around because the uninstall info is no longer present. 64-bit based programs are undetectable by the free version, that`s why for total and complete work, the pro version needs to be purchased.
    • Pros
      • The free version still does a good uninstall job
    • Cons
      • Still need the paid version to do a complete 32bit and 64 bits application unistall

    A free and easy life saving software for pc users

    It is by far the best uninstall tool i`ve come across by a great margin, saving me hours of system repair because that`s what I do. The hunter mode is especcially helpful as i use the drag and drop feature to easily locate and drag virus-like programs into the flame, killing the process and deleting the file. The pc`s task manager was unable to kill these processes but Revo could, which makes it an highly recommended for pc users.
    • Pros

    Pro version is worth every penny. It does more than intended

    It`s an excellent program, but i think it will be great to also have a feedback indicator to show the status of the operation. After i installed it, I realized it came with a test application for it to uninstall, that appeared on my desktop called "Arcade something." (laughs). It did uninstall the test application through which i find cute. I also tired the Hunter button which i don`t really know what it does. It disappeared after a while. But in the end, if this software meets my expectation and does what it claims it can do, then it definitely worth every one of my penny. I`m looking to do a thorough uninstall of my hanging browser and i think it is perfect for my use. I`ll say, `use it!" and thank the developers for giving you free access to it.
    • Pros
      • Free trial versions still have some functional tools
    • Cons
      • No status indicator to indicate processes

    Went from excellent to bad after a while

    Prior to Windows 8 this program rocked. After running the uninstaller for the program being uninstalled, it would continue on and find leftover registry entries and folders/files the uninstaller missed and allow you to delete them. Now when the program goes to find the leftover registry entries and files on your hard drive it takes forever to finish, which it did not do before Windows 8. I`ve had it take as long as 30 minutes to an hour to finish the leftovers cleanup. Entirely unacceptable. Apparently, it needs a rewrite for Windows 8 because it worked great under previous versions of Windows.
    • Pros
      • Scan to find leftovers after uninstallation of programs
    • Cons
      • Scan for reminant registry files takes a long time to finish

    Best free version software by far

    A bit disconcerting, as it asks many questions about what to remove. It`s a removal program and should know if what it is deleting will harm or crash your PC and provide an explanation. More details & info on the software/programs proposed for deletion would be beneficial to those of us who don`t know everything! The list is long, and it would be too time-consuming to research each item to determine if it should be deleted. Other than that, I have no complaints (as of yet).
    • Pros
      • effective search and uninstall feature
    • Cons

    A must have uninstall kit for total pc maintenance

    I had some stubborn bits of leftover fragments that just wouldn`t leave regardless of all my attempts to get rid of them using Windows uninstaller and some other similar third-party programs. When I used Revo Uninstaller, it didn`t only get rid of those stubborn leftovers, it did a clean sweep of my systems registries and got rid of most bits I didn`t even know where there. This alone has to earn Revo a 5 from me. Revo is a really great kit to have.

    Good windows uninstaller replacement

    Revo is easily a suitable replacement for PCs regular uninstaller that has issues uninstalling. I have used Revo for a long time. And just for you information, Apart from the direct download link, DO NOT MAKE USE of the download.com installer because you will be allowing an army of spyware/adware on your PC. Make sure to decline that option, and then the actual program will be downloaded and installed.
    • Pros
      • Free system scanning and registry maintenance
    • Cons
      • Spyware and adware may come with the installer when downloading from a third party website

    Revo uninstaller is a must have for every pc user for ultimate system maintnance

    The free version is highly functional compared to other regular uninstallers/installer tool that comes with the Windows PC and most software programs. It quickly gets rid of leftover remnant data that are left behind from other uninstallations. Though it doesn`t have the full functionality of the pro version, for added security and other useful features, it is worth paying a few bucks for it. It sometimes goes for a 50% off which i`ll say is the only cons to it.
    • Pros
      • An easy replacement for system uninstaller
    • Cons
      • Free version is limited in functionality

    Best trial uninstall program for pc

    I downloaded and installed some programs and ended up with four extra malware programs i didn`t bargain for which I struggled to remove for 3 days. The exact cause i think was this stupid program called gorilla piece that keeps requiring me to download an installer from the same company i tried to get rid of. My quest in getting rid of this Gorilla price program led me to discover Revo uninstaller which after i installed, quickly got rid of this stupid program, and the best part was that I didn`t get the `corrupt file message others have claimed to get when they tried to remove this program. I am more than excited to have gotten rid of this program, including the other 3 programs that cause a lot of headache over time. It`s probable too early to tell if the malware was 1005 gotten rid of, but i haven`t received any pop-up message that says otherwise. I`m currently using the trial version, but i think with all things considered, i might get the full version when this trial runs out. Revo is simply a life-saver!
    • Pros
      • Double scan for fragments after uninstall

    One of the best I`ve used

    Gets nearly all files, registry entries, and folders of the program being uninstalled. Ten times better than Windows uninstaller, But still leaves some leftover stuff, occasionally. Every now & then it will delete a file of another program. You have to expand all +`s in the registry section to see some more "BOLD" areas.
    • Pros
      • Get almost all files of the uninstalled program 10 times better that Windows uninstaller

      • Still remnant left from time to time

    Revo uninstaller is free does a great.

    Revo is very good at what it does. I`ve probably used it more than a hundred times (I tend to try a lot of utilities to see how well they work) and it has never caused any problem. It`s surprisingly rare that a program uninstalls itself cleanly; virtually all leave orphans behind, and that clutter accumulates.
    • Pros
      • Can uninstall itself thoroughly
    • Cons
      • Does not properly unistall security softwares

    All-in-one thorough uninstaller software

    I made use of a different uninstaller called `Your Uninstaller` for quite a while until i discovered Revo. The first feature I love about Revo is it`s scanning capability routine done before and after the typical uninstallation. With that, it can dig out deep registry remnants too deep for windows uninstaller to even detect. These remnants are often left behind by programs during the uninstall process, and now, Revo is rapidly winning my trust as far as uninstaller goes.
    • Pros
      • Before and after scan to remove stubborn programs
    • Cons
      • Free version is limited to 32nits application

    Never use any other uninstall software apart from Revo

    Revo uninstaller is so good that i never try to uninstall any program from my system using any other means except with Revo. You can easily get rid of those deep files that the programs own uninstaller left behind. These are really rare and so difficult to get rid of. After using Revo uninstaller, it would definitely not be advisable to go back to the using the uninstaller that comes with the program you want to remove.
    • Pros
      • Easily removes remnant files windows uninstall couln`t find
    • Cons

    Revo has the perfect features for a complete and thorough system cleanup

    After getting rid of some viruses on my friends PC (or so I thought), I kept getting the error Saying, `file not found,` and this was coming from one of the leftover malware I thought I vanquished. I then decided to use Revo uninstaller to scan the PC where i found the program i thought I removed. I selected the program, chose the uninstall strength to advance, and within minutes the malware was removed. It was a nice feeling having to run the PC without that error message popping up again.
    • Pros

    Best all inclusive free uninstaller by far

    I once had a tenacious problem with my browser where malware was always attached to it. No matter what I did to get rid of this malware, it all was in vain. I even employ malware pro software, but nothing happened. I uninstalled and reinstalled the browser, but there it was again, the annoying malware. So, I downloaded the Revo uninstaller free version, and it cleaned out all the remnant registry files of the browser in seconds. I reinstalled the browser again, and it washed clean of the malware. Revo proved to be the only robust solution to removing these stubborn from my PC, and I am considering going for a pro version.
    • Pros
      • Fully functional trial version
    • Cons
      • No cons for now
