Made as the portable counterpart of IObit Uninstaller, this small-sized tool is capable of thoroughly removing software from the computer by finding and deleting any leftover traces too, whether they are files, folders or registry entries.

Compared to the installer version, IObit Uninstaller Portable has one main advantage and disadvantage: there is no risk of inadvertently installing additional unwanted software, but it doesn't get updated as fast as the installer.

However, you can drop the .exe file anywhere on the disk and just click it to run, as well as easily store it on a removable device to keep it close wherever you go.

IObit is capable of removing tools, Windows Updates, Windows 10 apps, along with browser components and toolbars, since it offers support for Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.

It comes loaded with a batch uninstall option that lets you select multiple applications to rapidly eliminate them, creates system restore points before proceeding with the removal in case you want to revert changes, scans the hard drive for leftover files or folders together with the registry for invalid links, and it's able to permanently delete files beyond recovery by shredding them. Whether you want to take advantage of all these features or just part of them is entirely up to you.

What's more, IObit integrates a quick uninstall button for some programs, which means that it will swiftly get rid of components without asking for your assistance. It also has a forced uninstall mode for difficult-to-remove elements as well as for identifying the source of a file or folder. Other features include reports and a monitor for other uninstallers besides IObit.

The tool worked smoothly in our tests, without hanging, crashing or prompting error messages. It's quite efficient at detecting leftover files, folders and registry entries, carries out tasks quickly, and remains light on the system resources. As a matter of fact, you can test it for yourself to discover its abilities.
