Product Review – Revo Uninstaller

Posted in open-source, product review, software, tips -n- tricks at 6:26 am by Kris

I found this program via a blog that I read, and was impressed by what I saw. But I was even more impressed once I installed it and ran the application! This is by far, the best uninstaller software that I have some across. You can choose four mode of uninstall, from light to very aggressive (if you’re a geek like me you want to get rid of ALL the junk old programs can leave behind). Once the uninstaller from the app being uninstalled runs, Revo does it’s due diligence and searches for orphaned folders, files and registry entries, allowing you to pick specifically which one you want to leave or send to the circular file.

Best of all? It’s FREE. I couldn’t believe how much functionality comes with this software – and you don’t have to pay a penny! More and more, I am going open-source for applications (made the switch to Open Office here recently) and I’m trying to always go the way of free software. But if you find one that you like, do donate: it helps them to pay their bills and continue development. Try this one out – you won’t be disappointed!

Revo Uninstaller helps you to uninstall and remove any unwanted application installed on your computer.
