It not only uninstalls programs from Windows efficiently but even removes the leftover files, folders and registry keys belonging to the uninstalled program.

Before the above action, all programs to be removed get listed with their name, size and installation date in a sortable column. Then, a simple right-click on any entry in the program listing displays a context menu with the following options:

  1. Uninstall the program.
  2. Remove Entry from the listing. (this option is useful when the program has already been uninstalled but still hides in the listing as leftover
  3. Open File/Folder or search for the program online.

Revo Uninstaller Freeware

One of the best-known and popular uninstallers available for Windows, this un-installation utility, provides a speedier and alternate interface for the standard Windows Add/Remove software dialog. Revo first shows the icons and titles of all the programs installed on your machine. Then, it scans your system before uninstalling an application and also after completing the process. Besides, it includes many additional cleaning tools.

Even if you have an unfinished/broken installation saved, the program scans for an application’s data on the hard disk drives and in the Windows registry. Later, it proceeds and displays all detected files, folders, and registry items so you can delete them.

Revo Uninstaller Freeware now includes updated language files and fixed minor bugs. Download version 1.93 from here. It works on Windows 10/8/7, Windows Vista and Windows XP. Download it here. While the paid version is on v4, this free version is stuck on v2.05.

ZSoft Uninstaller

The program offers one of the best and easy ways to uninstall stubborn programs. It improves upon the normal Windows un-installation methods which help you remove all traces of the installed program, including registry changes and left over files. The program can analyze installations. So a user just needs to scan his computer before and after the installation for uninstalling a particular program.

In short, a user is required to create a before/after system snapshot. It then lets you know exactly where a new file is added, or from where a file was deleted. ZSoft Uninstaller is even available in a portable version.

Glarysoft Absolute Uninstaller

As the name suggests, Glarysoft Absolute Uninstaller is a program that uninstalls applications completely which often leave behind broken registry keys and unnecessary files on the hard disk.  It looks very similar to the standard Windows Add/Remove program in action but is more powerful.

Using Absolute Uninstaller, you get the option to uninstall unwanted applications one by one manually, or in batch. You can list the programs by either their names or installation date and easily finds out the applications you want to uninstall.

Before deleting applications completely, Absolute Uninstaller backs up the necessary information thereby, making any un-installation restorable. Download it here.

    Revo uninstaller is a great tool, but it doesn’t uninstall 64 bit programs.

  2. Netchunks

    Pretty good collection, I have used only one from them Revo, will check out the others too and find out the best from them.

  3. sasuke

    you forget advanced uninstaller…..it is pretty much like revo uninstaller pro…

  4. hemant saxena

    i did not, choice differs!

    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..

  6. melen001

    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….

  7. Nihilist

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

  8. 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….

  10. Guest

    I am using Revo Uninstaller since long and found is the great.

  11. Mladen

    Comodo is not available for Windows 8…
    Supported Operating Systems:
    Windows XP/Vista/7/Server 2003/Server2008 – 32 bit and 64 bit

    Tried Absolute…had no effect in trying to remove NOX…also had a bundled program called Malgames that could not be de-selected…Malgames?-sounds fishy to me.It did look and act just like delete programs except that there was no dashboard exclusive to it…no way to tell if it was doing anything at all-no report,no logs to review.Cannot recommend.-K.

  13. Kenneth Krueger

    Just used Revo…WOW!…(applied to win 10 system upgraded from 8.1)…First of all, I couldn’t delete the NOX emulator using its own uninstaller…So I deleted its files from the windows program files,but it still appeared in the control panel list of programs.I then did a search for NOX on my drive(C-Windows) and got no results.I ran Revo-It came up with the same uninstall page which I ignored and asked it to search for leftovers.First it found nearly a dozen registry items labeled NOX(registry items!!!)with their own boxes to tick to remove,then it found at least 40 more bits and pieces of NOX related items still floating around on my hard drive and I deleted them all! Immediately the listing in the control panel disappeared! AWESOME! 5 stars-highly recommended.-K.

    Kinda surprised you just found out about Revo, as it’s been around & popular for several years now – however, I’m glad you did! It is most certainly a very handy program – albeit Microsoft’s uninstaller SHOULD already include these features. That way these awesome developers wouldn’t have to waste their time creating programs to perform functions that Microjunk was too lazy to implement themselves, and could use that time to develop more original software instead.

  15. The 41 Pills

    I dunno ,I had Revo and it’s a big program loads slow,need much CPU power.Sometimes my monitor got frozen ! Iobit is good,but all my antivirus and malware always detect Iobit as a malware ! I use 360 Total Security. (had before Avast Premier-such a awfull software-garbage). Why is nobody talking about Comodo? or Ashampoo ?

  16. BH

    I’m with you on the absence of Ashampoo: it gives you complete control and monitoring of the whole uninstallation process, you just have to remember to take system snapshots before and after installations. It also gives you complete control over how to execute the uninstall, using Ashampoo alone using it along with the application/Windows uninstallation procedure.

    It’s is loaded with help screens and the snapshots can be done at anytime, so the snapshot compare can be also be used to check what other applications are doing to your system.

    There were a couple of fairly minor cons. This free application is an advertisement–literally– for their paid applications and there are a *lot* of pop-ups for their paid products after you install it, but these are easy to dismiss and delete.

    It also wants to be a “Swiss Army knife” type of application like CCleaner and almost gave me a fit when I learned it was running mst Defrag SDK Service. This is easy to deal with by turning off that defrag feature in the settings, but I wish they had given a better heads up on the system modifications that would be done.

    Revo looks good based on YouTube about it, but when I checked their site the free version is *much* weaker than the paid version.

    I passed on using the CCleaner uninstall feature after I let it’s registry cleaner wipe out my “safe to delete” file associations and it was the first to be uninstalled using Ashampoo.

    IObit’s uninstaller has good logging, but I feel it’s far too intrusive, modifying the Control Panel Programs and Features interface with a “Powerful Uninstall” menu item and running a system monitor that cannot be disabled, but it has a very good Windows Store app uninstall feature, so I will keep it to install temporarily for monitoring Store installations.

    ZSoft Uninstaller has logging/monitoring, but it hasn’t been updated in three years and based on the comments here I took a pass on trying it out.

    I didn’t care for Advanced Uninstaller PRO’s free version because it looked like a deeply stripped-down version of their paid uninstaller and it would open my Metro/Store Netflix app that I had running in the background every time I ran it, so an immediate uninstall there.
