Replacement for Revo Uninstaller on 64-bit Windows??

From what I can find out, the traditional free version of Revo Uninstaller has limited functionality on 64-bit Windows.

So I am looking for a replacement. Revo Pro is supposedly 64-bit compatible, but it is $40.

I am aware of these 2 free alternatives, but I have not tried them:

Myuninstaller

MyUninstaller: Alternative uninstaller to the standard Windows Add / Remove module



Uninstall manager

Uninstall Manager


Any comments on these 2 applications or any other Revo replacements?

This works well for some people I know;

Windows Software Uninstaller, Windows Registry Clean up, Restore Windows Applications - Comodo Programs Manager

<http://programs-manager.comodo.com/>

I have not done any extensive trials with it myself.

Thanks Mike.

It was your comment in another thread that free Revo was incompatible with 64-bit that started me hunting.

Problem is, I have 32-bit now and so can't easily test the 64-bit compatible replacements. But I will likely be moving to 64-bit within weeks, thus my interest.

I have used Revo Uninstaller (version 1.91) on my Windows 7 x64bit system...

If it's any help, I have not encountered any problems.

Yes, it "works".

But do a Google search. By all accounts it does an incomplete job on 64-bit programs.

Whether it is outright damaging, I don't know.

The free REVO runs alright on 64 BIT systems but it doesn't work on 64 BIT programs.

I have used the Comodo program a few times on various machines, and have had no problems, it also seems to reliably remove all the relevant registry entries etc. I have not used it enough to recommend it outright.

Thanks for the info, ignatzatsonic and Mike, I will certainly check that out.

By the way, I have also tried the other programs you mentioned in the original post. Didn't like either of them. There is no point in using a program that simply duplicates the built-in windows functionality;

Important Notice

When you uninstall a software, MyUninstaller utility is not directly responsible to the uninstall process. MyUninstaller simply run the uninstall module provided by the software that you want to uninstall. So, if from some reason the uninstall process fails, you should contact the author of the software that you want to uninstall, not to the author of MyUninstaller.

UNQUOTE

Much the same applies to the other program you mention, it adds some ( in my opinion superfluous) functionality to the standard windows functionality.

The Comodo is the only other one I have found which works more or less like the REVO uninstaller, it removes the registry entries and associated files.

I can only tell you how reliable it is after using it for at least three months, and preferably longer. It's looking good up to now though.

Thanks for the comments. I have downloaded Comodo and will likely try it now on 32-bit.

I'm also always put off by and suspicious of English language technical documentation that was clearly not proofread by a native English speaker. If they are that indifferent/careless, what else is in store for a potential user? Do they just write this stuff in their native language and then toss it into Google's translator and expect accuracy?

I have just emailed Revo Support and asked them to confirm whether the Free version completely removes 64-bit programs effectively.

I will post back when I receive their response.
