Hi,

As I currently have a problem to download the regular way, I'm using the direct link option (a link that is being sent to my email).

Yet, did not get any licence and / or link to such.

Kindly advise how I may obtain one on order to fully utilize that great piece of SW.

THNX,
Uri

This seems to be an excellent programme one question not really related to to this, but when Win10 do their numerous updates, usually (in my case) loaded with a fault preventing the next update from installing, making it necessary to do a clean re-install, can i carry this programme over after backing it up?
I am a complete 79 yr old nooby, so sorry if this a dumb question!

Every third-party program installed has a removal program. (Windows also uses it) After uninstalling the program, you get a pop-up window with the text, "some elements could not be deleted, they have to be removed manually", or (please restart your computer so that the remaining files can be removed).
For my, no unnecessary programs on my computers.

This program sounds very interesting, but it concerns me because of the possibility that while monitoring an install it might pick up portions of other programs running at the same time and then destroying them if I ever remove the software I was monitoring. I believe, however, that a hidden gem in this software is the ability to install a trial based program and when the trial expires, remove all remnants of that program so that I can install the trial again for an additional free period. For that alone, this program is worth installing.

Reply   |   Comment by Susan  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Susan, A valid concern. I have this program and can tell you that the way it works is that you can view what changes were made and mark items of both files and registry changes to ignore during the uninstall.

As far as doing a complete cleanup so you can reinstall a trial, consider that you might also have to use a difference name and email to get a new trial download. That having nothing to do necessarily with what is on your computer.

What "others" and what "percent"? Thanks.

StephenB, in case Robert doesn't answer you: on the right side of Soft Organizer main window, beside each program installed on your PC, you can see its "rating", i.e. the percentage of uninstalls made with Soft O.

So "others" are Soft O's users, and "percent" is, for each program, the percentage of these users who eventually uninstall it. No information about who they are! I guess it is supposed to give you an idea of its quality, and it seems harmless to me.

Robert Smith,

I have always found the uninstall percentages a bit odd. We do not know exactly how the figures are calculated. We can only go on that the program was uninstalled, but we don't know why. It could have been for an upgrade (some programs automatically uninstall previous versions and others install over top of existing versions). Are the statistics based on programs that were uninstalled by Software Organizer Pro, or simply they have detected that the program has been uninstalled through other means? We don't know.

I looked through the list and noticed some of the programs that had been uninstalled by as much as 33% of users, but I still have them on my system, and as I read through I was understanding why so many had uninstalled them because they were generally leaning towards some of the worse programs I had ever installed, and then I noticed that my xplorer2 Ultimate also had a 33% uninstall rate. WHAT? That is the first program I start after booting, and the last one I close at the end. It is without a doubt the most used program I have on my system. It only shows how different users use programs differently. At this point, I am not going to put a lot of weight into those figures.

To do what yo are asking, about non-essential Windows applications, please just do a web-search. You may find that you can turn off some features. For some they may not gain you anything in performance. You can set the related services to "manual" and they won't run until you specifically invoke them. Put tape over your camera if you are paranoid.

ouialaraison, No. No uninstaller keeps track of the source code. They can check the registry for the program's placements, it's file leftovers and links. That is all that is reasonably expected to do. If you want a program again, reinstall it.

Installed it without problem. What? No registration needed?!

I didn't try it yet. One reason is that after setup, you have three choices to check (or not): Box 1: Launch Soft Org. ; Box 2: Enable functions requiring data transfer ; Box 3: What's new in this version.

Before checking the 2nd box, I read what's said under the link "What are these function." A small window pops up with two short paragraphs:

"To improve the deleted applications' leftofvers lookup function, the information about the registry keys, names of the files and folders that were left in the system after you uninstalled an application using this product WILL BE SENT OUT TO THE SERVER."

Next paragraph said: "To check for updates of the installed applications, their names, developer's names and version numbers ARE SENT OUT TO THE SERVER."

(Caps are mine.)

Now, what does that mean? Is this another tricky statement saying that you will send your installed info to www.chemtable.com servers, and they are keeping track of what we install-uninstall???

Pretty unusual statement. Anyway, I left it unchecked.

Any ideas?

Reply   |   Comment by JimK  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+30)

JimK, I have been using this for several years, paid subscription. I usually leave the "Enable functions requiring data transfer" off. The program still works as needed and I see a percentage uninstalled anyway. How it accomplishes that I do not know. I have not monitored my network. I usually terminate the program after monitoring an install and only start it again to monitor a new install. (Some programs install when I click "download" and I may miss monitoring those installs. Some programs update automatically and I may miss those. I don't even attempt to monitor, e.g., Windows or Office updates. Too much to handle and this program is not how I'd uninstall; I'd set a restore point if MS isn't doing it for me.

Using this program to see what is actually being puton my computer during an install, including from GOTD, is useful. Using it to uninstall is much better than what some programmers code into their uninstall packages.

Leave the "Box 2: Enable functions requiring data transfer" unchecked. Not going to cause a problem.

I was going to pass on this offering because I do not need another software organizer, until i read that it is an uninstaller program.
What part of this software actually organizes anything?
why didn't you call it Deluxe Pro Organizer? The meaning would have been just as unclear as to what the purpose of the software is.

I have had problems with Revo Pro on Win 10. It used to be my go-to app for monitoring installs until, and I can't recall exactly when, it stopped functioning normally for me, and not just on one PC. Particularly the right-click to monitor installs function. The menu bar stopped showing up making install monitoring more difficult. Revo support was unable to provide a solution. Even after multiple version updates of Revo I don't find it as easy to use as it used to be. I like Soft Organizer, and it is much faster than it used to be.

I had an earlier version of this program. I was told that there would be no free updates. So I was surprised when I saw the latest version of this program offered here. So essentially I updated for free. And I will keep on the lookout for newer versions that are offered for free and update that way. There are other websites that offer for free programs that would normally be paid programs, like www.SharewareonSale.com, https://www.giveaway-club.c/?utm_source=GC_main&utm_medium=pop_up&utm_campaign=Premium_tab_pop_up_enlighten_check_it_out_Later, and http://www.bitsdujour.com/pc-download

All joking aside, in theory, if an installer/uninstaller can memorize all changes made to the system by a program, and undo them, it should be able to redo them, in the case you lost the executable, or it is an old version no longer available etc. But that sounds a bit like a desperate solution to me...

ouialaraison, All joking aside, any uninstaller can only run the original programs uninstaller and then clean up any remnants. It would need to save the original program files and installed locations to be effective. Other than GOTD and, possible, other free one day only, offerings I can't think of any programs where you can't simply reinstall them at a later date. There are, of course, really old programs that just won't run under the newest versions of windows. I have one of those that won't run on my primary computer at the latest version on win10 but still works on another computer I use as a server that is at the same level of windows, weird, huh.

Many years ago there was an excellent package called CleanSweep. It was an excellent uninstaller, & could bundle
the complete installed mass as a .zip. It was then able to renistall the complete app back in the future, either in the original location, or in a new location nominated by the user. I found it invaluable in the days of 80gb HD's, & many new apps being released, & then found unsuitable. I have searched for a replacement for many years. IS this software that missing replacement ???

Reply   |   Comment by OldGuy  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

ouialaraison,
Memorizing changes made to a system involves writing file names to a separate file. What you are suggesting is a back up of every program removed, and it would be a short period of time before your computer hard drive was filled with useless old programs in their entirety that you would probably never use again. It is unlikely that most computer users would want to fill their hard drive with old software.

Susan, actually, I was not suggesting it, for many reasons, including the one you give. I was only pointing that Bob's question was not as absurd as it seemed. And there are also many reasons why a program "reinstalled" this way wouldn't work properly, especially if there has been changes in the system inbetween.

OldGuy, I need to do a backup for my Win 10 computer but the Windows backup is so large that I don't want to do it on my hard drive and doesn't tell me how many CDs that would be needed if I go that route. Does Macrium make a smaller backup file than Windows? I keep missing the GOTD offerings for back-up programs.

Reply   |   Comment by Velvet  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Velvet,

Macrium does do some compression, however it is still best to save that backup somewhere other than the drive you are making a backup for. The best solution is to invest in an external hard drive if you cannot add an additional hard drive to your computer (such as a laptop). Some laptops also have a place where a second drive can be installed, and it is a good idea to take advantage of that space when it is possible. You can get a 1TB USB 3 external hard rive for less than $100 and even closer to $50 at your local ???mart store, or order one online. At such low prices, it is foolish to not have one available.

Even though you might have missed some of the GOTD backup offers, it is hard to beat the Macrium free edition. It is a strong incentive to purchase the full Macrium package. Of all the backup software solutions that could be offered on GOTD, I had much rather see the full package of Macrium offered at 50% off than all the other backup software offered for free. In other words, you haven't missed anything.

Reply   |   Comment by Gary  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Velvet, 1st: do not back up your disk to itself (if I understand what you wrote correctly.). CDs are too small, you'd need DVDs at least, mb, Bluray. I use an external USB3 hard drive. In fact, 2: I copy the most recent backup to a 2nd external USB drive so I have two copies of latest. If you have ANY data yoi value, and depend on your computer, you MUST backup; your hard drive WILL fail. So you must image backup your WHOLE drive, not just parts. Then WHEN your drive fails you can buy a new one and restore the whole thing.
Macrium Reflect Free Edition is always free, not need to wait for a giveaway. Go get it.
As for space: a recent backup of a 1TB drive (actually 931.51GB), with 247.24GB used produced an image file with Macrium of 184GB. The amount of compression you get depends on the type of files you have: large, already compressed files (videos) don't compress much. So YMMV.

Reply   |   Comment by OldGuy  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Bob,

I understand your question exactly. It is too bad that all programs do not work as a portable program does. It would be great if you could uninstall, maybe install some other program, uninstall some more programs, and still go back and put the first uninstall back into the system without having to depend on the original files, re-activation, or any other deterrents that prevents you from doing this with all programs. In fact, portable programs are intended to solve this very problem; the concept was based on people thinking the same as you do.

I agree it would be nice to have the option you desire, and there is no reason that you could not be selective as to which ones you choose to save for later re-install. Filling up your hard-drive is relative; depends on how much free space you have. Since the data removed could be compressed, with sufficient storage space available you could go on for years and years.

Most uninstall programs depend on the original program's uninstall program to do the initial work, then it scans for remaining files. The governing uninstaller may not know what the program's uninstaller removed, ... unless it was also able to monitor the original install. So you can see there are some complications that can develop. That is why today's offer has the option to allow it to collect the names of files that was left over by various uninstall programs. By building a database of what programs install, and what they leave after an uninstall, these can be programmed in to look for later.

Sometimes disk space might dictate that a program has to be uninstalled. It might be a program that you wish to keep around, but wish to have it installed onto a different hard drive (e.g., move off of a limited sized SSD). If you copy an application to a different drive, the registry, start menu, and other files will not be referencing the new location. If you knew where each of the Registry entries were located for a program, you could change each one to the different hard drive. There is a program called "Application Mover" developed by Funduc.com that was designed just for that purpose. It simple looks for all references to the original location, and changes them to the new location.

There is also a program that can help "move" applications to a different computer. It is intended for helping out in operating system upgrades, such as XP to Windows 7, but can also move programs to the same OS on a different computer, depending on which edition you use. The program is called PC Mover, and it is developed by Laplink, the company that originally became know for moving data/files from one computer to another via a special "Laplink" cable between two computers. The company has a "free" edition called PC Mover Express. They had a big promotion in May celebrating 35 years, and promoted the PC Mover Express to encourage people to try it out. I have PC Mover so I did not need to install the express edition.

Thankfully someone else already mentioned Total Uninstall and also Cameyo, which can turn almost any program into a portable one.

Keep thinking outside the box, and never worry about the soothsayers.

OldGuy, Gary... Thank you for your responses. I appreciate reviews of back-up software since I have never used one. It sounds like Macrium has about a 26% compression rate. I will try it and see how I like it. I do save videos, docs, e-books, etc on flash drives or CDS so I have my important stuff saved in case of a fail, but since I now have Win 10 I want to get the system backed up. I just haven't been able to afford an external hard drive yet, but have plans to get one. Any suggestions for a good, but inexpensive brand. I see so many options out there.

Soft Organizer has been offered here several times, the last one in May 2016:

If you already have an older version, you can install this one over it without losing your traced data. And yes, you can do it with Soft Organizer (but if you are sadist or just curious enough to want to try and uninstall Soft Organizer with Soft Organizer, I did it once for you: it will just freeze!)

Changelog here:
https://www.chemtable.com/version-history.htm?prod_id=Soft%20Organizer

As a software addict, I install/uninstall a lot, reason why I am a regular here and why a good uninstaller is indispensable to keep my OS fit. For that I have long relied mostly on the free portable version of Revo uninstaller, but I took the opportunity of a clean reinstall of Windows 10 in 2016 to install Soft Organizer first, then all my other software, so that they could all be traced with it.

Whenever you start installing a program, a pop up notification will ask if you want to trace changes with Soft O, but considering that the launch of Soft O is not always instantaneous (at least not on my PC) I am not 100% sure it starts the tracing before the new installation has effectively started. This is why I would rather recommend that, instead of double clicking the executable, you systematically right click it and, in the menu, chose "Run and trace with Soft Organizer". If you are as absent-minded as me, it might take you some time to get into the habit, but if you forget, there is always the pop up to remind you or you can abort the installation and start again.

An automatic update/upgrade (of Dropbox, Chrome etc. but apparently not W10) also triggers the pop up asking if I want to trace it, so, even if I don't bother to do so (I can't say "some other time, please, I am busy", and I don't plan to ever uninstall Dropbox or Chrome for good anyhow), at least I know it is happening as it is no longer completely silent.

Do not forget to open and close at least once the newly installed program before clicking the "End tracing" tab in Soft O, so that all changes can be traced. If the installation requires a reboot, ask Soft O to close. It will then tell you it has not finished the job and will ask if you want to keep on tracing changes in the background. Accept, then reboot and reopen Soft O first thing (to not give it the chance to trace changes in your system that have nothing to do with the new installation) and let it complete the tracing.

I was actually a little bit concerned that some changes occurring in the system during a new installation but unrelated to it, for instance an automatic Windows update, might be undone together with a subsequent uninstallation, causing problems. On another site, I had the opportunity to ask the dev', and that was his answer: "Soft Organizer's algorithm will filter most of the system entries not related to the traced program. Please note that in some cases, the extraneous entries may still appear in the tracing log, but they will be ignored when undoing the changes from that log. Despite this, it would be even better if you manually review the changes log upon its creation to ensure that no superfluous entries are appeared there." (Fine, but if I spot "superfluous entries" in the log, what can I do?)

Once, playing with a newly installed software, I forgot during a couple of hours that Soft O was still open, waiting for me to close that software and complete its tracing. After I endly dit it, Soft O said it had installed two new programs, including Dropbox (an automatic update). As the installation of the new soft and the Dropbox update were probably mingled in the tracing, to make sure I could uninstall my new software without unknowingly damaging my Dropbox I uninstalled/reinstalled them both with Soft O, and resync'ed my Dropbox. That's the only mishap I had, and it was my fault. And note that since then, one of the improvements brought by version 6.06 in february 2017, was, according to the changelog :"Fixing the several possible cases when the entries not related to the traced application are added to the traced changes."

For the menu, click the blue square top right.

Last (but not least) tip: Soft O hunts leftovers so relentlessly that (read my lips carefully, as I will say this only once, and not loud) after what I found out (by accident, of course!), it is capable of wiping off all (repeat: ALL) traces of programs, including certain trials with a time limit.

ouialaraison, nice review, You bring up an important point algorithms are fine and reduce the need for manual inteligent intervention but they do not remove the need for manual filtering by an educated inteligent entity. While it apparently provides a way to review the trace log it does not provide a way to dissapprove traced activity from other unrelated processes from being included in the chosen installations uninstall script, if that is so, maybe the developers could consider adding the user interface to allow that fine tuning or exposing the format of the uninstall database so we can edit / tweak the uninstallation scripts ourselves to choose what to keep and what to allow the removal of.

ouialaraison, That sounds like Revo Uninstaller Pro that I'm using so far your review don't seem to sound different have you tried the Pro version of Revo so you might enlighten me if there is any difference or areas where either is better than the other I would apreaciate it before I download it as I already own Revo and would rather keep one program than 2 if that makes sense.

TK, Thanks for your appreciation. About being given the possibility to do a manual filtering of the traces, in theory you are right, of course, but in practise, how many "educated intelligent entities" like us would bother to check each and every change made to the system, one by one, never being very sure of what they are doing, after installing or before uninstalling a program? I know I wouldn't. Either I trust my uninstaller or I don't use it. Up till now, Soft Organizer doesn't seem to have failed me.

Wipeout, I'm afraid I can't compare Soft Organizer Pro and Revo Uninstaller Pro as I have only used the free version of the latter. Why not, since it is free today, install this one, compare them quietly, and keep only the one you like best (and give us a comparative survey next time one of them is offered here!)

[ mahdiameri28 ],

A salute to Cyber-War-Against-The-World-Putin, because ChemTable 'Organizers' are more Russian software that phones home?

At least Chinese Maxthon bought a Los Angeles 'headquarters' for show when folks realized they were Chinese ... but their software still phones home to China, doh!

Someday, everyone will learn to host their software in Switzerland or somewhere else neutral.

John Davidson,

>"mahdiameri28, What are you talking about?"
The person having the username mahdiameri28 got conned into one of the "get rich schemes" online. They tell you that if you purchase their program, it will make automatic posts to thousands of website's bulletin boards to promote the purchaser's product. But notice, there is no third party program mentioned. The purchasers are often so dumb, they don't even know how to set the system up with a product name they are wanting to promote.

Some of the bulletin board software make a decent attempt of filtering out these types of posts, but the software program picks out some key words from the page they are posting to to include in the post, making it get past some of the filters. That is probably why the Soft Organizer Pro is part of the post.

After the program has made all of the useless posts, it gives an account of how many websites it posted to, so the purchaser thinks they have invested well and will be raking in the dough soon. Sooner or later they figure out they have been taken, and stop using the software. ... hopefully.

If you do a Google search on mahdiameri28, you see tons of senseless comments similar to this one.

This is one of the distractions we have to deal with these days.

As I had some stuff I wanted to install I thought I'd give this a try. First of all the download was very fast, installation was a breeze and no registration required. The interface is nice clean and simple and uninstalling and finding residual files is fast. I've been using Revo Uninstaller but will consider using this instead.
