It also has "Hunter Mode" where you just mark a program and uninstall it from wherever it is installed. I like it because it also delete leftover files and registry entries that MS uninstaller mostly miss. There is also "Forced Uninstall" for more stubborn cases. Pro version has some more programs for cleaning and adjusting system.
    So you can be reasonably sure that all the programs installed will show on it. To be honest, there were a few cases when uninstallation did not go as planed but by using Scan it found all the files and registry entries and cleaned them up anyway. Just so you do not have to chase it, you can find free version here:

    You can try it and if you do not like it, it can even uninstall itself.
    Hmm... Sounds like it does work a bit better than previous uninstallers that flat-out require a full monitoring of the installation. I may give it a try at sometime in the future. BTW, there's nothing like the voice of experience and you certainly sound like you have experience with Revo so thanks for that! Cheers!
    Well, I tend to stick to whatever works best for me, I do try a lot of programs but keep and recommend only what i deem worthwhile. That is also the reason I keep uninstaller handy.

    I'll give a go with the free version first. If I like it I'll go for the Pro version. Thanks CountMike.
