    Thanks for tip on IOBIT uninstaller only tried because i think it was 64bit compatible as Revo Free was not and did not want to pay for an uninstaller at the time. Had Revo Pro before was o.k. it probably is one of the better ones. As said none get everything, found they can screw up a system after uninstalling a program as to be careful on how you handle the leftovers found in Revo after it uninstalls a program.

    Recently felt i wanted a uninstaller not counting on Windows to uninstall well, why i have been commenting and following this thread.

    I use GeekuUninstaller. It's a portable, No installation required, has a lot of good features, and doesn't PHONE HOME like IOBIT(which is a good uninstaller too):
    Some of it's options:

    You do not want to do that, it will cause problems later on with installing Applications, that's why not.
    I learned that lesson a while back with Revo, now I do not use such Applications.

    A few trivial entries left in the Registry are harmless and best left alone, figuring out why an entry is in there and links is almost impossible, and only known by the original Application designer.

    The irony is that these Uninstaller Applications, Reg Cleaners etc leave remnants themselves when uninstalled.

OneDrive uninstalled but some programs still expect it
I uninstalled OneDrive a while back, but some programs flash up a warning that it can't be found when saving new files. Looking at the registry, I find numerous references to One Drive (and its predecessor, SkyDrive), so it seems to be embedded in Windows, even though I thought it was removed. ...
