Does anyone of you Guys use a uninstaller Progrm

Hi Guys

Some time ago I read in a magazine article about a uninstaller program but I donít remember what magazine it was in.
The reason I ask is I am a little fed-up with the windows or the program uninstall program only removing some of the program and not all the traces of the unwanted program leaving part behind.
In this article it recommended one to use.
So does anyone have any recommendations of a good one to use I not bothered if its free or paid I just want a good one that works
Or are they just as bad as the windows version
Regards

Hi,

I've personally never had issues using the programs uninstaller, or Windows uninstall, but I have seen others recommend Revo Uninstaller, although I've never used it.

Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems

Regards,
Golden

Best method is before the fact...i use an old version of Total Uninstall which takes a snapshot before and after installing an app...
Unfortunately it is no longer Free and the old version is hard to find.

My method of totally removing a program is the safest & surest way to completely do it IMHO, is to make a system image using Acronis's One Click back-up before installing an app, then if it is not satisfactory do a restore.

I always create a system Restore point before installing any new software and then do a restore if I do not want to keep it.

And Revo Uninstaller Pro if I want to uninstall later. The paid version of Revoinstaller Pro can monitor the system changes during install and then undo them when uninstalling.

Win7 doesn't really need such a program.

Welcome
Dont use the uninstaller unless necessary. It does remove everything and possibly too much. It gets into registry and many times is too aggresive, I agree with Greg.
Just uninstll with Seven.
