    I have used Revo and IObit uninstaller and both are great at what they do. I understand that Revo can leave behind 64 bit software’s left over files and, if anyone has noticed, does not register your 64 bit software that you might have installed. That’s way I use IObit. It performs just fine, it’s 64 bit compatible and has a couple of extras. Of course you can see all your installed programs including extensions and plugins and also large programs, recently installed, rarely used, Wins updates and a toolbar removal tool which is very handy for those hijacking toolbars that are really difficult to remove. Both are FREE to use so just try out IObit uninstaller if you’re using Revo, have to say that Revo is excellent also, and just maybe you’ll get on the IObit boat just like I have..

    I meant to say that Revo does not uninstall 64 bit software so, of course it can’t leave behind files. Not 64 bit compatible. Sorry….

  • Nihilist

    ive been wondering for months why my new 64bit system revo wont unload those programs…. weird.

  • George Melendez Correa

    Hi Nihilist… what are you trying to say? Is it that you have a new PC with a Wins 7-64 OS or that Revo’s paid version, which is Wins 7-64 compatible, won’t uninstall 64 bit software or upload on Revo uninstaller 64 bit software? Is it that you can’t see your 64 bit programs on Revo? Let me know. You can always try IObit Uninstaller, It’s FREE and works VERY WELL…….. Hope to here from you soon,

    Hello guys…
    Just came back to say a few words. Been using IObit Uninstaller with good results. I have been lately using Gee Uninstaller and quite frankly really surprised…… It does a superb job of completely removing leftovers and it’s as good or maybe even better than IObit….. it has a very simple GUI and very few options or features but when speaking about uninstalling is where it has a 5 STAR rating …. i will be using both IObit and Geek but will be using Geek much more….
