Revo Uninstaller is a solution that outgrows the ‘Add or Remove’ feature of Windows’ control panel. It uninstalls programs, but also cleans additional leftovers from the computer’s registry.
Removing the software that you no longer need is crucial, since the footprint they leave on your system may affect its performance in a negative way. The standard uninstallation process erases the program, but leaves behind some traces that clutter the registry, resulting in computer errors and slowdowns.
Revo Uninstaller achieves a total cleanup operation of all the software remnants.
The steps it performs are the following: detects all the applications installed on your system, allowing you to choose the one to be remove. Plus, it offers users three uninstallation methods: Safe (very fast), Moderate (searches in the most common places for leftovers) and Advanced (the scan is thorough but takes longer).
As soon as the scan process is over, the software displays a list of all the detected remnants and allows you to choose which ones should be deleted. Please note that sometimes a reboot is required for all the files to be removed.
In addition to its basic purpose, Revo Uninstaller features extra tools that mostly serve for tweaking your system. The Autorun Manager allows you to manage the items that load at system boot, while the Tracks Cleaner is a safe way to clean the history from your browser or from your Office suite.
Hunter mode enables the whole application to minimize to taskbar, while a sign that resembles "target practice" appears. Drag and drop it to any open window, and you are provided with options to uninstall the respective program, stop auto start, kill or delete the process.
In conclusion, Revo Uninstaller is what you need in order to get rid of leftovers that would take a great deal of time to clean manually. For advanced features, take a look at Revo Uninstaller Pro.
