Smarty Uninstaller is a software that allows you to completely uninstall programs (64 and 32-bit) installed on your system. It monitors the built-in application uninstaller and uses an advanced scan engine that deletes any program leftovers. It allows you to launch the scan engine manually at any time to force uninstall a program with broken uninstaller. Featuring an intuitive and modern interface, Smarty Uninstaller displays in the main window all installed software, broken installations, system components and Windows updates.

The grouping feature allows you to organize applications into logical groups and view grouped programs in separate tabs. You can add comments to installed applications which will be displayed on the main window when an application is selected. In addition to the smart scan engine, Smarty Uninstaller provides you with an easy to use but effective feature – Smarty Snapshot.

It allows you to monitor the installation of new applications and detect every change made to your system during this process. These changes are saved to the snapshot, that can be accessed later at any time for review or complete uninstall.

I had Smarty Uninstaller on an older computer and I loved it. I am happy to get it for my new ones. I have no idea why so many thumbs down, but I think it is easy to use and a great little program (for free) for uninstalling all the programs and games I am always downloading.
And, no...I do not have any affiliation with the software. Just a happy user.

I've been trying a lot of uninstallers- all of them claims that "It monitors the built-in application uninstaller and uses an advanced scan engine that deletes any program leftovers." That is not exactly right. I've never found ether one uninstaller, who can trace and remove "all" leftovers.

Try the uninstaller with some trial version of some program- for example- some time limited version. I mean- install the trial version, then uninstall few days later with the uninstaller. You will be noticed that the trial program "remember" somewhere for how long it has been in your computer, and count the remaining days correct. Which mean that the uninstaller DOES NOT "delete any program leftovers".

Today's program (Smarty Uninstaller Standard 4.1.2) is the same- tested.

Beside that- I like the today's GOTD- it is doing (almost) what it claims.

NOTHING can beat REVO Uninstaller PRO version. NOTHING. It does everything!

Reply   |   Comment by SoftwareBabe  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-5)

If you're going the paid route, Total Uninstall is the best that I've found; Uninstall Tool the next best. I've been using a giveaway version of Soft Organizer that works well, too. Never had a problem with it.

Advanced Uninstaller Pro *used* to be a great freeware alternative -- especially their reinstall feature which allowed a backup of GAOTD software that could be reinstalled later. Then they added that trial software which couldn't be uninstalled without killing the uninstaller as well.

I've not found other freeware offerings to be worthwhile, including Geek, Revo Free, ZSoft iobit and the others since all seem to leave quite a bit of junk lying around the registry.

One other *very* useful paid product is Registry Trash Cleaner since it cleans areas not accessible by other programs ... uninstallers or registry cleaners. If you need to nuke a trial program and start over again or *really* need to clean up an uninstalled program not tracked by an uninstall program, that's the thing to get.

If you don't already have a paid program though, this offering is not a bad alternative. I've used it in the past and it works pretty well. Not better than Soft Organizer so I won't be installing it but it's worth getting if you're using a freeware program.

First let me say a word about Comodo's Program Manager:
Yes, it's a useful softw, pity it doesn't work on win 8 and/or 64bit processors, and against Ashraf's review at dottech it works very slow, so much that it can take a very long time to remove a somewhat larger app, besides I noticed it leaves an empty folder behind called 'Impostazioni Locali' (I guess it's Italian for 'Local Settings') to find it just type %userprofile% or %allusersprofile% into your windows Explorer navigation bar (NOT Internet Explorer). This happens when a sloppy programmer uses absolute paths instead of relative paths in a system whose localization is other than English.
I noticed this same phenomenon happening with other software from Comodo as well, namely Comodo Internet Security.
Another pitfall: Comodo's Program Manager eats up a whole 500mb as a work folder hidden somewhere within the C: drive, in addition to its own installation files...

Now it´s time to say something about Toolwiz Time Freeze: this one eats up a whooping 5gb (yes, five gigabytes) hidden right within C: drive's root folder! So if you're tight on disk space and don't take this into account, a lot of weird things such as data loss could happen as some people above pointed out. My compliments to Karl, but his slogan 'uninstalled via reboot' seems to be misleading to some people, yes of course you can use Toolwiz Time Freeze to 'uninstall via reboot' although it wasn't meant to be used as an 'Uninstaller software'...

which finally brings us to the point:
Dear SoftwareBabe,
Sorry to disappoint you (and others sharing this opinion), but you're just plain wrong!

This is THE MASTERPIECE of all installation monitors, program uninstallers, application-to-new-system migrators, registry tools, startup monitors, and...
You'll be astonished about how much you'll learn about the registry's inner workings, about the file system, about why some apps are somewhat portable, about any traces left behind,etc.

Tried it way back when given and worked ok. However got into Revo and stayed. But do be careful. Revo has Scan option that will dig deep into files/registry tree-entries. One can easily select Delete All w/o scrolling all the way thru the unchecked found entries. If Delete All there's high risk of removing an entire folder's entries along with the main program parts being removed. Go slow.

Okay.. so i ran it for about 3 hours and it worked on MOST of my installs and uninstalls. when it worked it worked well. When it didn't it was useless. I will keep it and use it as a 2nd level of protection (for snapshot use only..) but If it doesn't work 100 percent of the time I can't depend solely on it. I figured out the flaw though, so if you want to use it just be advised that if a new installation requires an older version of the same software to be uninstalled in order to update it won't work. so basically it works on new installs not on upgrades(at least not all upgrades) Nice tool. Just needs recognition improvement. Thanks GAOTD and North American Solutions.

The standard license is NOT time-limited; *updates* are time-limited to one year. cf. http://www.smartuninstall.com/order.html (10 seconds of due-diligence)

ALL uninstallers run the risk of removing files/keys that will break other software/OS components as well as miss remnants that should have been removed: balancing the two is a juggle on a tight-rope and how well an uninstaller program does this is paramount. Anyone who doesn't review changes before they are made (with ANY uninstaller) is acting recklessly.

I currently use Soft Organizer (terrible name but a great product) from a previous giveaway but I'll give this one a shot to see which one performs better as it also does active monitoring/snapshotting rather than just a file/reg search.

Having tried the program I do like it better than my current Geek.exe because it has a better interface and more flexibility.
Compared to IOBIT uninstaller it does offer the opportunity to group applications according to your own taste - you might for example want to group graphics software/video software/productivity and so on. I also liked that it identified programs that MIGHT have been removed but which still had traces left - and allows you to remove these. However use this with caution as I found it listed some games which were still installed through the big fish game manager. I will probably use this until I am faced with paying to upgrade and will then go for whatever free option is around at the time such as IOBIT

I recognize that my opinion is biased cause I'm fond to Revo but after trying to uninstall a couple of applications with Smarty I concluded that Revo run circles around this Smarty (not too smarty) uninstaller. It is too slow (seems to be coded in Visual Basic or .NET), ask lots of questions and displays too many windows in order to uninstall a simple program. In my particular test even displayed a modal window resting behind other windows that let me waiting asking myself what to do next. Then I realized that a modal hidden behind was just telling me that Smarty couldn't find the uninstaller .dll. After hitting OK the uninstall procedure continued.
Sorry, I used Revo to uninstall the Smarty Uninstaller.

I've been using Revo pro for years and I own a copy. For fast and thorough uninstall of unwanted software Revo Uninstaller is The Terminator. It thoroughly deletes everything the software installed on the machine, including the shortcut on the desktop. It saves the registry before uninstalling just in case something goes wrong. After many years of using Revo pro, I'm glad to say not once did anything go wrong with a Revo install.

I just use portable freeware Revo Uninstaller.
No uninstaller is fool proof.

Use RegSeeker to double check what the uninstaller missed.
Sometimes it is shocking what a lot remains.
Be careful when you use RegSeeker.

No uninstaller can proceed if you were tricked into deleting your unins000.dat files by suspicious "cleaner" software that recommends removing ALL *.dat files. The disk space saved by doing so is incredibly small and damages your ability to uninstall.

Sometimes during installation of a particular software, it will automatically uninstall another software without asking you first!
For example when you install GiliSoft Video Converter, it will nuke the existing copy of Anne Video Converter in your PC - without asking your permission first. But it will tell you that it has uninstalled the other software.

Downloaded and registered without problem on Win7 32/64 , I like the interface as you can change colors to one you comfortable with, I admit that I made one test only due to lack of time and it did pass . I have been using Your Uninstaller for many many years and quite happy with it, I will put it on hold for now and use this one for the time being for further trials/tests . So far don't see any reason why not to be used . Many members here miss the point of the site ,,, it meant to comment about the programs given away here /what is good or bad about them so the developers know what to improve in the next version, with all respect to every one Karl is the only one who does that while the many others start giving us lectures about their experience with other programs in which doesn't help the developers at all.

Well, I disagree. Competitors’ software performance and comparison with the one offered are surely of interest to the developer who isn't alone in the market.

They are of even more interest to visitors here, since what they want is not to necessarily install what is offered irrespective of others available, but to choose the best of them, based on users’ comments.

But you are technically right in that comments on the offered software are the prime requirement.

@Alan Rayan

So, you think that sharing experiences (bad or good ) with other programs or recommending different programs are just lecuures and not helpful at all ?
Yeah, in general it may not be helpful to the developer but does not the comparison with another similar make developer thinking to improve or modify ? Healthy comparisons and Constructive criticisms are always have been welcome and Good for something for further improvement or modifications. There are so many giveaway forums but The healthy and instant interactions between the users' and developers or sharing so many little experiences/knowledges is just going to enrich this forum and make it entirely different giveaway site where the 'profit of developer' is not the only goal but 'profit of users/visitors' is also looked after.

@Alex, Comments comparing this software with another are comments on this software and not "technical problems or suggestions on our project" If you read it literally it does NOT say "only on the software given away today", but just "the software here" so IMHO that does even include comments on the eccentricities of the software that forms the entire running site, not just the given away software which is why I feel allowed to post a reassuring comment when a previous commenter expresses concern over a misunderstanding of how the comments voting system works.

This looks like a well written program. I'm not wild about the time limit. A few concerns I always had about this "monitor" type of uninstaller is suppose you install programs A, B, and C. You decide to uninstall program B. The program will undo all the changes made by program B. But couldn't that influence program C in some way? Does this Uninstaller run all the time in the background? I would want it to run only when I would need it. Finally, how well will it do with already installed programs?

As good as the images look I will stick with my Toolwiz Time Freeze. No need to uninstall some thing if I can try it and decide not to install it at all.

I was a Toolwiz Time Freeze/Machine Freeze fan till last night. Tried to start it up, it wouldn't start. (was going to install yesterdays give away). Decided to uninstall. Rebooted as it said and BOOM! Won't boot, won't recover, even with Win7 cd. I know for fact I had no less then 5 recover points and they were all gone. Couldn't even go back to a known good boot. Having to restore from an image I made 3 months ago. At least have a different drive as my data drive so my files are intact but you can bet Toolwiz just lost it's place in my bag of tools.

There is a difference between Time Freeze and Time Machine. Time Freeze is set up as a virtual system and will discard any changes made with a reboot. That is what I use. Time Machine on the other hand takes snap shots of the system to roll back your system to an earlier time. similar to Rollback RX. I think of Time Freeze as something I turn on and use only when I need it. Time Machine is meant to be used all the time.

Reply   |   Comment by gpc111  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+16)

I had the same problem with Time Freeze. The software is simplistic to use. One click of a button and you enter into Freeze mode. It's quick and easy.... but too much! What goes on "behind" the scene after pressing the Time Freeze button to make it a really quick operation, I don't know.

Time Freeze worked many times for me in the past, but it took only one day, to "bomb" my system. I had to reinstall everything (I had backups, but still.)

I will give a try for today's giveaway, since I lost my key to REVO Pro during my TimeFreeze adventures!

@ Karl – Someone may be after you, in a way. I don't know how he/she or they can manage to do it !

Quite interesting: Since this morning I have repeatedly tried to click “yes” under your original comment, above, but I got a pop-up error message. To my surprise, this did not happen when I clicked on comments of other users.

Having voted “no” for a single other comment — and noticing that the same number (+53) was stuck underneath yours — I decided to see what it would happen if I did so on your “no” , as well. My Firefox browser came up with a different error pop-up. See both:

@Ioannis: It is very unlikely anything untoward is going on with karls posting votes. What you describe can happen a number of ways but boils down to one simple thing, when the page was loaded no vote from your public IP number had been recorded, but by the time you voted, either your public IP changed to one that someone else had voted on that comment if your connection re-connected and was assigned a new dynamic IP that someoneelse had previously voted using, or someone else on your LAN also voted on the same message before you. You can simulate this by loading the SAME comments section in seperate browser tabs on the same machine and after ensuring all tabs are fully loaded, vote for a comment in tab 1, then try and vote for the same comment inthe other tabs and you should get the same error alerts as you saw initially. It's nothing sinister, just the sites anti-vote tampering in operation. Of course if all the comment votes throw up similar uninformative "Error" alert then could be a sign the backend comment votes database is having problems.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+10)

@TK: Good of you to spend time explaining but, in my particular case, you can't be all that right. I think I do know how the voting system works. Though the number in itself means absolutely nothing, due to simultaneous voting "yes/no" by different users, a single —non-malicious— visitor can vote only once; either of the "yes/no" words will be grayed-out.
Also, two additional facts: 1) My public IP number isn't dynamic, it thus remains unaltered. 2) More than a couple of hours had elapsed between my first and the finally working last attempt, while I clicked on "yes" for other posters than Karl.

I'm appreciative of mysteries, but I also like a plausible denouement.

Wow, now comes even the simple uninstaller with a one years license...

Installed and (self-)registered without problems on a Win 8.1.3 Pro 64 bit system. A clean install.
An US?/Canadian? company without name and address, the EXE is digitally signed as North American Solutions with an email admin@polarpos.com. In the "about" no message about a time limited license.

We had had a previous version Smarty Uninstaller 3.0 on July 31, 2013. Here are the old reviews:
http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/smarty-uninstaller-3-0/

A well made user guide: http://www.smartuninstall.com/download.php?get=SmartyUninstaller4.pdf.
The A well made guide leads to a well made UI.

The resizable interface is as clear structured as the guide. You can change skin, colors, font-size, as well as language and actions.
The window shows the installed software, grouped in 32 bit and 64 bit, installation date. You can use this software even for a backup of thze registry:
http://i.imgur.com/fu0YKpj.png

A first run with a small install of the useful tool Innoextractor, which I use (read about!) resulted in an error message:
http://i.imgur.com/vHLpw69.png

The program was able to uninstall this software:
http://i.imgur.com/isQx1oG.png

Hmmmm, a second install was not found either... A third test found the installed software:
http://i.imgur.com/BFvH0eV.png

But the program doesn't show (or I could not find it) the installed files, folders and registry keys:
http://i.imgur.com/1RWfSvi.png

Without knowing the details of a monitored install, this make little sense for me. Where are these information hidden? Maybe another user finds this.

Uninstalling with monitored information data is dangerous, because you could delete regitry key, which were changed in the meantime after the installation and needed for other programs.

Makes mixed impression, a very good UI, not able to monitor every installation and not able to display, what has changed.

Uninstalled via reboot.

From what I read in the T&C's you tick on installing, it is a standard license, not the lifetime, (see also in the "about"). This means it is a 1 year license

I personally do not buy anything that has only a 1 year license, the full version as I call it, lifetime license, is just too expensive for me when there are so many free/lower cost alternatives on the market.
I will keep it installed for a while to fully test it out of interest.

Thanks GOTD, I look forward each day to see what you have put on offer.

The functionality of 'Smarty Uninstaller' almost similar to 'Your Uninstaller PRO'. Smarty Uninstaller has really good rating on many forums including SOFTPEDIA. It will be worthful to download and try this if one is ready to ignore the 1-year licence limitation.

I have been using 'Your Uninstaller! PRO' since it was givenaway here on November 21, 2011. It really impressed me and afterwhich I had stopped using 'Revo Uninstaller' at that time. Even now I prefer to use 'Your Uninstaller! PRO' than the other similar freeware programs though all those freeware uninstallers are good also. They are :

Advanced Uninstaller PRO - http://www.advanceduninstaller.com/

ZSoft Uninstaller Portable- http://www.zsoft.dk/index/software_details/6

Revo Uninstaller Free - http://www.revouninstaller.com/

Thanks as allways, Jahid, but I wouldn't recomment Advanced Uninstaller any longer. It comes bundled with a "maintainence program" (Daily Healt Care/Check), you just can't avoid during installation. After the trial version runs out, you'll have to pay for something, you never ever asked for. Innovative Solutions didn't make their flagship freeware after all, did they...

Hi Jahid,
Are you sure about the "1 year license" as I read the above, and for the life of me, I cant find any such limitation??

@Allan

Actually I didn't try to recommend any one of those 4 freeware uninstallers. I just shared my preference and satisfaction with 'Your Unistaller PRO' than those Free Uninstallers which I used till date. I forgot to mention that 'Your Uninstaller' is not 'monitoring' based like today's GOTD.

@Peter

In this page 'This is a 1-year licence' was written just above the phrase 'Get the unlimited version with discount!' but now that has been removed. But in the program actually no such limitation has been found.

I'm also still using Your Uninstaller Pro. The last version 7.5.2013.2 is happy with Giveawayoftheday registration key.

I have both Your Uninstaller Pro and Revo Uninstaller Pro. Of the two I find Revo Uninstaller has a scan option by which one can remove left over registry entries and also all the files located in Drive C of the particular programme uninstalled.

No, Mr D P Rangan,

'Your Uninstaller Pro' also offers scanning after uninstallation process to remove left over registry entries and unnecessary files . It has four uninstall modes:

built-in (the standard uninstall process),

safe mode (includes built-in mode and it's the quickest way to uninstall while scanning registry files on a simple level),

normal mode (includes safe mode, plus an extended registry scanning, and it's slower than the safe mode),

super mode (includes normal mode, plus a complete scan on traces left in Windows; the slowest but the most efficient mode).

Sorry for posting a comment on different programs.

@Allan - iobit uninstaller does indeed install a limited version of advanced system care without asking HOWEVER you can uninstall this component using the iobit uninstaller program so uninstaller is not dependent on this being present. Would be nice if they gave you a choice about this but then it is free.

@Jahid. I'm very satisfied with your recommandations, sharing of experience and the over all very nice way, you contribute to this forum on a daily basis. Perhaps, you just didn't know, that Advanced Uninstaller Pro comes bundled with a "maintainence" program in trial version nowadays ;-)

@clive - I actually installed IObit Uninstaller e few days ago on a friends computer, and you're right to a certain point. However you have the choice to uncheck the installation of their ridiculous Advanced System Care Free version. Everybody can avoid most of this unwanted BS, if they run Unchecky during all installations and program updates. It's one of the very first programs, I install after new Windows installation. I recommend it as a wise choise : http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/Unchecky.shtml

Thanks, NYB, for yet a freeware alternative. I really don't get, why you "deserve" thumbs down for that suggestion. Other users "wins" 150 thumbs up for posting simular. Well, I just don't like that "Bully Bottom". It's a degrading thing for this site.
Let's compare, who gets the most thumbs down, 'cause I prefere IObit's Freeware Uninstaller: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Uninstallers/Advanced-Uninstaller.shtml

Thanks to North American Solutions for the generous offer - and to the team behind GOTD. The market is however over crowded with very good freeware alternatives
