    Revo Uninstaller stalling - work around

    I've had problems running Revo Uninstaller, free version, on two machines with Windows 8 installed.

    It didn't matter which mode Revo was run in from safe to advanced. It would remove the selected program/app OK, but when it started searching for left over registry entries and files, it would appear to be running, but actually nothing was happening, even when left standing for 40 minutes.

    Anyway here's a heads up for anyone who's having the same problem. I solved it by running Revo in compatibility mode for Vista.

    Hope this may help.

    I use the Pro 64 bit version on 3 system and my Bro-in-Law uses it also and have no issues so far with W-8 Pro or W-7 64 bit.

    I had the same problem, and using Vista compatibility mode helped! Thanks a ton!

Hi, I've been using Revo (free) for years but since buying a new laptop with Win 8.1 it doesn't appear to picking up on all installed programs. Do I need to tell Revo of all installation folders and if so, how?! I'm guessing this isn't strictly a Win 8 problem but I can't find any Revo...

Hello, I'm trying to decide on an "uninstaller" software. It doesn't have to be free as I don't mind purchasing the software as long as it's from a somewhat reputable company that wont disappear after 6-12 months or keep throwing out updates just to make additional cash for no reason. I've...
