    I hope you red about it because I forgot to mention it. With Revo you can also install a program to assure that it remembers every small detail of it and can uninstall it even more reliably. Also pay attention to "Hunter Mode", another useful thing. I have uninstalled literary thousands of programs, drivers etc. with it during last few yers and did not have a single problem that can be attributed to it.

    I am going to check it out in next few minutes. This is what Cnet tells me:

    Revo Uninstaller adds some serious power to uninstalling programs, but not a lot of speed. It certainly runs circles around the default option in Windows. However, it's not the most convenient way to kick programs off of your hard drive. It tucks many of the best features behind a paywall, too.

    Revo Uninstaller comes with the free trial, which lacks some of the high-end features of the pro version. Though it can delete some registry errors that usually come with deleting programs, it doesn't remove all of them. To do that, you need to upgrade or use a different program. Upgrading doesn't add any speed to this download, which is something it's sorely missing. It makes you wait until one program is finished to start uninstalling another. It's even more annoying since you have to go through each individual program's built-in uninstall process, too. Choosing programs to uninstall is easy and fast, though, thanks to the program's icon-oriented menu. There are plenty of options to tweak your uninstalls. You can choose from options that include a light uninstall or a deep cleaning that rips all traces of the program off of your hard drive. There's even a really neat "hunting" mode that lets you uninstall programs or kill tasks without fully loading the program.

    Revo Uninstaller seems to be a very interesting mix of registry-cleaning and uninstall programs. Luckily, it does both of those actions well enough to earn a passing grade. If you really like the program, you might want to upgrade to the pro version. It's fairly priced and adds some essential features that aren't available in the free version.

    Here i my AV scheme:

    • Use Windows for Office work
    • Install Linux Mint or Zorin in a VMware Player virtual partition and do all internet work from there.


    You don't even need an AV program with this setup.

    Hello again,

    Trying out Revo uninstaller, all the bloatware, and I must agree it gets right down to the nitty-gritty of the software you are uninstalling, I even checked through the registry for some of the pre-installed software, Nope, Nothing. I am trying the free and pro versions, and the pro is most likely the way I will go. I will keep you posted if I mess up or 8.1 crashes, because I haven't been careful using Revo.

    Hi Snapp. one small problem I noticed with Revo is that sometimes, if a folder where a program is being uninstalled from is left open, it does not delete that folder but leaves it empty. Just a minor annoyance so I did not pursue it further as I occasionally check and clean up drives anyway and empty folders take just few bits of space.

    Thanks for that info. I usually go through the registry, edit, look for the program, delete etc, after an uninstall. I will keep that in mind.

    VS Revo Uninstaller


    Tried and tested Revo Pro, all OK. Yesterday I was configuring my printer, an old Epson R300 and my flatbed Canoscan scanner into my network. Printer works fine, from laptop and main pc, but not the scanner. Found out that flatbed scanners, well my particular one will now show on my network. This morning really used Revo and I must say, in advanced mode it works great! I was a bit apprehensive at deleting when 'SCAN' came on, but as yet all seems to be fine. Well worth paying for. Thanks guys for heading me in the right direction. Bloatware all gone now. Start up speed really quick now. btw, I use 'msert' at least 2-3 times/mnth.

    Now to get those Homeplugs sorted.

    I use REVO since years. I never had a problem with the deletion of Reg entries or files in advanced mode. I think this is safe to do.

    Problem is, for some programs it does not really delete everything.
