I have been having this program with Office OneNote where I can't uninstall it. See, I tried to uninstall it and it said it is either corrupted or uninstall from original download which I tried that. I was using the revo installer after it came up with the corrupted or uninstall from original but after ask you scan left over files i think i deleted them. Really at this point i am not sure? Please help someone?

Installed and worked properly, but having to manually inspect THOUSANDS of deletion listings guarantees that you're going to miss something important. My next reboot required me to reinstall programs whose files I'd inadvertantly deleted. I wouldn't recommend this program until they organize the deletion list a lot better.

I have been visiting GOTD pretty regularly for the past couple of years. In addition to my deep appreciation for the unique value of GOTD offerings, it has been a great learning experience for me and I very much appreciate the value everyone's input.

However, it occurs to me that the critique shootouts that occur on these pages for determining the "better" application it is more often a case of a comparing apples to oranges, if you'll forgive the cliche. The nuances and specialties of each application of comparison would more often seem to qualify a determination of "different" as opposed to "better".

I bring this perspective to light not to be critical or picky (no soapboxes here). It seems to me that it would be more helpful, especially to the more uninitiated of us, if comparison conclusions were drawn more along the lines of "different" rather than "better". This, I believe, (in the spirit of fairness and professionalism) would go a long way to avoid impuning the value of any, especially a much appreciated GOTD offering, and allow us to more pointedly determine which application, according to our own particular usage and preferences, would be the better choice.

Although, there are times where one application could appear to be a clear winner over others, or rare instances of shoddy development occur, in my opinion, for these valuable "off the cuff" informal reviews, at the risk of sacrificing pure entertainment value, it would still be more valuable to all if the "different", not "better", format were used.

Re #60:

- just discovered that the latest version of Revo Uninstaller (free version) has no info on installation dates! (They are all set to a recent date). It may be available in the Pro version. So better use an old version, and not upgrade, as #60 suggests.

I tested out today's Cleanse Uninstaller Pro 6.5 vs Revo Uninstaller 1.8.0 by uninstalling a nasty software called Ask Toolbar, that does not have any uninstaller. So, when I tried using both software to uninstall this Ask Toolbar, it will kick-start the Windows Uninstaller but since Ask Toolbar only allows Modify or Repair when you try to uninstall it, I cancelled that step and proceeded to do Leftover Scan.

Cleanse Uninstaller Pro 6.5 took ages to process but Revo Uninstaller completed the Leftover scan very quickly.

Here are snapshots of both:

Cleanser Uninstaller Pro 6.5 - http://my.jetscreenshot.com/1399/20100529-vgop-331kb.jpg

Revo Uninstaller 1.8.0 - http://my.jetscreenshot.com/1399/20100529-6rsr-174kb.png

Take a look, guys. The choice is clear.

PS: BTW, for those having Revo Uninstaller 1.8.0, it will ask you to upgrade to 1.8.X or upgrade to its Pro version. Just cancel and ignore it. Since the original version works fine for so many years, why bother since with every new update, more functions are taken out so that you will be better off paying for the Pro.

@30, Mike, guys like you are the reason old salts faithfully check in. Some people can shove a dozen pages into one or two powerful, useful, helpful paragraphs.

What makes today's giveaway stand out is that, unlike several uninstallers such as Revo, Zsoft (and it's comically fractured English, although it's creators are smart cookies), Cleanse apparently does NOT put mid-experience people or newbies at risk of seriously corrupting up to dozens of your future efforts, to put it mildly.

Good giveaway. You know how GOTD has three or four each month that make the top ten percent? This one's a keeper. Thank you.

@Mike, thanks again. You're one "litrit sumnagun"

The manufaturer's uninstall routines rarely clean up everything and the alternative is NOT nice ie re-install Windows! Many complicated installs will simply not work properly after using their supposedly 'built-in' uninstallers! Between Program Files 'common files' entries, User Account application data and user account local settings apps data and temporary files, and other accounts such as all users entries there are a lot of possible places for file and data remnants, and many registry listings that do not show the program name!

When I've had to remove all traces of programs if a program I need stops working properly (for programs such as Adobe Photoshop/ Dreamweaver or Nero 8) and I have to do a complete reinstall, programs like today's GAOTD are a real Godsend, avoiding some VERY tedious manual file and registry entry removal.

@dummy-


Ashampoo UnInstaller 3 takes a completely different approach to uninstalling programs than Revo Uninstaller and Cleanse Uninstaller. It takes a snapshot of your hard drive before an installation occurs and takes a snapshot of your hard drive after an installation occurs


Yes, I've tried using programs like that- and unless they've improved things a lot (I'm willing to look) if the install does a reboot generally the snapshot comparison is toast.


I've been using RegShot 2.0.1.68 Unicode to snapshot the install, then save the snapshots so I can load them after the reboot to see what changed. Unless it's a real cursory snap, it takes a *lot* longer than 30 seconds- up to several minutes even if you limit it to a couple drives and exclude a lotta files and parts of the registry.

OTOH, at least the output of regshot 2 includes a undo.reg and redo.reg that you can edit down to reverse just the changes that pertain to the install.

Sure wish I'd done that with Paragon System Backup, I'd have it gone by now.

I'm sticking with CCleaner and I'm pretty sure I have some other programs for completely uninstalling programs. I'm pretty sure CCleaner is for fixing registry problems and, after uninstalling programs, you can remove things that were left behind when you uninstalled the program. You can also remove programs using CCleaner, but it's basically Windows' "Add or Remove Programs" built into CCleaner. I'd recommend people try out CCleaner.

I installed an old version of WinDVD and I tried to install it several times. The version was so old, there is no longer any support for it. I don't have the installation disc any more. The program no longer appears in Revo. I think there are some left-over components that are giving me an IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL with a STOP 0xA. Can this program find remnants of a program that might not appear on the directomy of installed Programs? This has to be a software problem because every hardware component in my tower has been replaced.

Reminder,if you uninstall a test program, don't use on you got from GOTD!

Any help would be appreciated.

Compared to Revo Uninstaller, you cannot sort programs by installation date. (Absolute Uninstaller can also do this), and this is important.
ZSoft Uninstaller is very efficient, but it uses a different method - and you have to run it BEFORE you install a program.

This is better than Windows' native uninstaller, but still not the best, leaving some tombstones of installed applications. To test how complete an uinstaller uninstalls, one just have to try uninstalling a shareware that have reached its expiration time stamp, and then trying to re-install the shareware again, to see if it does not detect one having passed the trial period. If the shareware detects the expiration time stamp, then there must be something left behind. This is not an ethical practice to use uninstallers for such purpose, but a real test how well an uninstaller function. Of course, one has to monitor the installation, to be able to uninstall it completely, but you will be surprise how many uninstallers fail to pass such test even with monitored installation with pre- and post- installation snapshots. So far, I have not found any uninstaller that can match Total Uninstaller in this respect.

“Revo Uninstaller doesn’t do anything until you run it, then it tries to find all traces of the program you want to uninstall (with several levels of aggressiveness). Ashampoo Uninstaller runs a little memory-resident program called UIWatcher. When you start installing a new program, it asks you if you want it to monitor the uninstallation. If you say no, it goes away. But if you say you do, it takes an extra minute or so to «memorize» all the key settings, then when you’re through installing (and opening and closing) the new program, it takes another snapshot. Later, if you decide to uninstall that program, you can tell AU to undo exactly the changes that were done by the installation.”

It takes a snapshot of your hard drive before an installation occurs and takes a snapshot of your hard drive after an installation occurs. This way, by comparing the differences between the two snapshots, it keeps track of exactly what changes are made to your computer during an install. When you want to uninstall a program, AU 3 simply «reverts» all the changes it tracked and thus allows a user to completely and safely remove the software. It does better clean uninstalls than Revo Uninstaller and Cleanse Uninstaller both. The catch is you must have patience and do quick 10-30 second scans of
your computer before and after a program installation.”

CCleaner is totally different from an uninstaller. CCleaner is a disk cleanup program (mainly). Although CCleaner can unistall programs, it doesn't go into the registry to find files like Revo and Cleanse. You can manually clean up the registry using the registry cleaner, but I do not recommend this as you should know your stuff about computers before you go deleting any files (as this is the case for Revo and Cleanse as well). I've found that you should only delete the files that contain the program's name in it. Then you know it is pretty safe to delete.

Every time I try to uninstall something, the program hangs at the "scan drive for leftover files". Even clicking "skip" at this point doesn't work and the program just crashes. Is there a fix for this? If not, I'll stick with Revo, which I've been using for years.

@30, prying1: CCleaner is a good program, but it is not at all an uninstaller. It removes junk files from some places (such as the TEMP folders), and it has an option to remove unnecessary registry keys, but it is completely unable to find keys or files related to a specific program that you want to uninstall.

Compare it with the numerous "Registry Cleaner", "Computer Booster" and the like that you can find on the internet. (Some of them have been given here.) It will probably win the contest, as it is really excellent. But do not compare it with a real uninstaller. That doesn't make sense.

I've compared Cleanse, Revo, Absolute, ZSoft and the standard Windows uninstaller under Win7 x64. I have just launched them and counted the number of programs they display. The results are already very interesting.

Windows finds 85 programs (not including the Windows updates).
ZSoft finds 68 programs.
Revo finds 67 programs.
Absolute finds 66 programs.
Cleanse finds only 21 programs!

All uninstallers (except Windows) miss most 64bit programs, for example 7-Zip 64bit edition. Curiously, ZSoft, Revo and Absolute are very close to each other, and I have no idea why they find one or two additional programs.

Of course, due to its very poor score, Cleanse is a no go. Given the fact that it is (normally) not free, it is really not a good option, at least under a 64bit system. (I have found nothing about x64 support on their homepage, which seems abnormal imo.) Sorry GOTD!

Absolute has had numerous problems when I've installed and ran it. According to Windows, "that program did not install properly". Not sure it's true, but it's a bad sign. Furthermore, when I launch it, I have always the same error message. So, IMO, it is not a good option either.

ZSoft has a relatively good score, but I hate its GUI, and it tooks ages to complete its first analysis of the registry. I had to kill it. I've read on its forum that it has several problems with the new way Windows stores the registry keys of x86 programs (such as infinite loops, etc...), and the author is currently trying to fix that problems. I have tried the latest beta, but I have had the same problem. Since the ZSoft uninstaller is a 32bit app and 32bit apps cannot theoretically access some keys reserved to 64bit programs, imo there is no good solution, except perhaps to recompile it for x64 systems.

Finally, Revo has a relatively good "found programs" score, and seems to work well, although it is also a 32bit app. It is therefore my recommended app under Win7 x64, but don't forget to have a look at the Windows uninstaller if you want to see the complete list of programs.

Note that I have NOT compared the number of remnants items each program finds when it uninstalls a program, but I suppose that a program that misses most installed programs will also miss most files and registry keys related to the uninstalled program.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned CCleaner. With it you can clean cache, cookies (of IE & Firefox + more), MRU lists, the registry, trash and it uninstalls programs. I've found it works for me. So much so that, even though it is free, I sent them a donation.

From reading the comments I will download and give Cleanse Uninstaller Pro a try. Sounds like it might do a bit deeper uninstall than CCleaner but I'm not sure why one would have to. A registry cleaning (after backup of course) will clear up most leftover vestiges of a program uninstall.

It's difficult to really, thoroughly test something like Cleanse Uninstaller Pro, because the only way to actually gauge it's effectiveness is to uninstall an app normally (preferably one with a lot of registry entries), then go hunting in the registry & on your hard drives for anything missed. Then put everything back [i.e. reinstall the app or restore a backup] & do the same thing using Cleanse Uninstaller Pro, comparing your results. Since effectiveness can vary from app to app, as well as depend on the installer used, IMHO apps like Cleanse Uninstaller Pro can only be accurately judged over time after repeated use -- the popular Revo wasn't by any means an overnight success, but built it's rep over time.

Cleanse Uninstaller Pro itself is relatively small at ~8MB, it has a Control Panel applet for Windows' system folder, & it's help file says that it requires .NET 2.0, & only works on 32 bit versions of Windows, win98 -> Vista. It could be the help file is outdated -- at the top of the GOTD page it lists win7 compatibility -- but I didn't see anything on their site about 64 bit... it is a question posted in their forum, but their forums are down as I type this. If/when I see an *official* yes to the 64 bit question, I'll keep Cleanse Uninstaller Pro around & give it a try -- the reason for wanting an *Official answer* is with this sort of app it's very possible to *appear* to work, as pointed out in the forums for the ZSoft alternative mentioned in comment #11.

As far as alternatives go, IMHO the best one is to monitor an app's install using the free Regshot2 -- it also gives you 2 files: 1 will redo the registry changes, & the other is an undo file... why hunt & search when you can know? For installs that weren't/aren't monitored, a quick Google search brings up Revo of course, but also a free, portable app from Iobit: [http://www.ghacks.net/2010/05/26/uninstall-software-completely-with-iobit-uninstaller/] & [http://iobit.com/advanceduninstaller.html]. The most effective uninstallers are highly specialized, intended to remove just one thing, & they're built around a complete list of every change an installation makes -- you'll often see these sorts of apps for graphics drivers, and some developers release them for their software too -- before trying any universal uninstaller like today's GOTD, doesn't hurt to see if whomever wrote the app you're removing has just such a tool available.

Of course you can always remove software traces manually, since just like with registry cleaning, there are decisions to be made on what to delete, & what to keep -- there's still some risk involved [always back up the registry], but I think less when a human does the deciding. Registry searches should not only include the developer & app names, but every key referenced -- you might find several classes for example listed under an application's software key, each of those should ideally be tracked down, & the same with any keys listed in those you do track down. You'll want to export/save the main keys [developer & app name etc], then uninstall, then start hunting -- uninstall first & you don't have access to everything listed in those main keys. The risk is that some of those referenced keys you track down can be used by more than one app -- you're usually pretty safe if/when sub-keys like "InprocServer32" = the app you're removing, but otherwise it's often making an educated guess.

Rarely [but it's happened to me] the only way to get a new app or driver working is to completely remove the old -- Roxio comes *Painfully* to mind, where manually cleaning out the old registry entries took more than 12 hours! Not complaining [I chose to install it fully aware of the consequences] as much as making the best case I can think of for monitoring your installs.

I have used Cleanse, Revo, and Absolute. In the past couple years I use Cleanse exclusively because I like the GUI (shows progress, offers choices); has Force Uninstall, which uninstalls apps by merely giving it the folder path in Programs Directory, and after years of uses has yet to screw up any other app by deleting shared files (gives you list to choose from though). All that and I am still using v.2.5! (will keep it that way but am curious about Pro 6.5 nevertheless).

Does not run YET on Win 7 x64. I bought this program awhile ago and had problems with it not showing all the programs I have installed on my machine.

I told them about it and for some reason they didn't believe me (I'm not new to computers OR programs) and wanted me to help them work out the bugs for free. I declined, so they refunded my money.

I was hoping that seeing it today here they had actually changed it but after installing it I found it still only shows a SMALL fraction of the programs installed.

So, no it does not work on Win 7 x64.

I had this program when I ran XP and LOVED it. It actually was the best I had found at actually getting rid of the whole footprint and not just part of it.

Cleanse Uninstaller lists 'broken links, but there's no clear indication how to identify them.

Suggestion:
It would be good to have an option to display only the broken links, rather than (as I eveventually realised) have to scan a couple of windows worth of icons for those with red text.

Also add a description of this in help (I found no reference in V6 of this).

[I've not seen Revo (free) list broken links... maybe I've missed something.] [Zsoft uninstaller proved easy to crash (out of bounds error)]

* compared with Revo, both works great!

Doesn't really support a netbook resolution and looks like it is only 32-bit therefore cancelling out my two pc's.

"SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
32 bit version: Windows XP/Vista/2000/Me/98 compliant.

· .NET V2.0

· 256 MBs RAM. 500 megahertz (MHz) processor or higher.

· Requires less than 5 MBs of hard drive space."

You would think that companies would realize that most computers sold to the general public are now 64-bit and their programs should adapt.

I've seen a lot of people write about getting both Revo Uninstaller & Cleanse Uninstaller Pro 6.5, uninstall the same program with both & see who comes out on top, yet I haven't seen anyone who's actually done that & given their opinion on which is better.

I've had Cleanse Uninstaller Pro since the last time GOTD gave the program away, (seems like close to a year ago) I've tested that version extensively against Revo Uninstaller & I have to say that Revo is simply better & easier. BUT, Cleanse has options & features that Revo Free doesn't have. (Force Uninstall, Filter System/Hidden Entries)

Revo is one click everything. It automatically creates a restore point as soon as you uninstall a program, it goes deep into the registry to find leftover files, although Revo Pro goes deeper.

As most people, in my opinion, that check GOTD daily, I try to keep my computer running smooth with as little programs as possible but what always happens is that I download & install nearly everything that show up on GOTD, test it, keep or uninstall it. So it would be wise to have a good uninstaller. Revo is a great program but Cleanse Uninstaller Pro 6.5 is also very good for certain issues, problem is, those issues don't arise enough to use this program.

I later uninstalled Cleanse because it was pointless to have. Malware Bytes has a File Assassin built in that is similar to Cleanse's "Force Uninstall".

Just my opinion.

Another very good free uninstaller program is Absolute Uninstaller, which I have been using instead of Revo Uninstaller.

For Win 7, just a note Run the Activation when the program is closed.
