Thanks for the warning. Not having a good reputation is a wild understatement, judging by the facts presented there. You mean they are downright crooks.

"Crooks" sounds about right.

I usually uninstall software using the method provided by the software's vendor/author. I have not seen any problems caused by leftovers registry entries or a few files here and there. Maybe I've just been lucky.

I have the paid Revo Uninstaller Pro. Use it exclusively to uninstall. I find its not any more complicated than the built in Windows uninstaller.

Here are the all the links of download, hope they are useful to who also need a good uninstaller software. PS:I don't think ccleaner is a uninstaller software.

Revo Uninstaller


Geek Uninstaller

IObit Uninstaller
After using one of the free uninstallers I find using the free Wise tools cleans up the traces. If you use the cleaners in Wise Care 365 free or pro you may want to first go through the traces list and uncheck some of the options if you want to retain your browser cookies etc.. I got the Pro free on a giveaway but the free version has as many tools as I need to use. So far I haven't had an issue with the Registry Cleaner or Disk Cleaner functions. Or you can get portable stand alone copies of Registry Cleaner or Disk Cleaner. But the 365 likely works a bit better as adjunct to an uninstaller.
