An uninstaller that removes all the pieces

Most Windows applications are complicated feats of engineering. They do all kinds of fancy stuff, but that often comes with an impressive level of complexity. As you know if you've ever tried to uninstall a Windows application, they've often got their tentacles wrapped around all kinds of important things on your system. Not only is there the main executable file, but often there are support files scattered across your hard drive, not to mention several—if not hundreds—of cryptic entries in the System Registry. If you just delete the program file itself, you leave tons of stuff behind. Heck, even if you use the built in uninstaller, you can leave debris scattered around your system. It would be nice if your uninstaller actually uninstalled.

Revo Uninstaller Freeware thinks it's up to that challenge. Sure, it can handle plain-old uninstalls, but it goes one better. Use this guy to uninstall an app and it will run through the normal uninstall routine, but then it'll go back and double-check to make sure that everything really did get picked up. No more leftover junk! A nice bonus here is that they do offer tech support for this freeware version of their application.

As the name would lead you to believe, Revo Uninstaller Freeware is a free download for your Windows 2000 (or later) system. Of course, they'd love for you to download and install (and pay for) the "Pro" version of their software, but there's no requirement that you do so.

    Revo Uninstaller is a fabulous program. I work as a Tech for a school district and we use it exclusively to uninstall programs….

    Revo Uninstaller is one of my “must have” tools on any machine. It is far superior to the “Add/Remove Programs” applet in Windows and packs an impressive level of features and polish for a free app.

    Revo Uninstaller is fantastic. I’m not all that high-tech, but I’ve been using it for quite a while. I’m so glad it was recommended to me. I in turn highly recommend it to anyone.
