Windows 7: Looking for a Windows based appplication to remove unwanted software

Windows 10 64 bit
 
 

I have a paid version of Revo Pro. As noted the free "regular" version of Revo Uninstaller will not uninstall 64 bit applications, just 32 bit. However, you can download a trial verison of Revo Uninstaller Pro, that will let you remove 64 bit applications. It also has an option for force uninstall.

IOBit Toolbox People! It's free and does almost everything Revo Does! just use the IOBit uninstaller and theres options for standard uninstall, advanced uninstall, and forced uninstall, (which u rarely need to use). plus many other great apps. The only one i would not recommend using is the registry cleaner, just use CCleaner for that.

I beleave this is the link >> >> Download IObit Toolbox 1.2 (dont worry, iobit usually uploads thru this website)

IOBit is a horrible program to use, it causes many problems, especially BSODs.

Thanks to all that have replied to my post!!

Just fyi, I ran the free version of the Revo tool and removed two of the unwanted applications. As far as I can tell, the tool worked as advertised and I’m fairly certain that the two apps were of a 64 bit nature. I suppose the real test will be when I try reinstalling those apps and maybe at that point I will find out if there is / was a conflict of old code left over.

Their own comparison page suggests not. It will remove 32bit programs in a 64bit windows but if I remember rightly doesn't even offer the native 64bit for uninstall.Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems

Okay, time to pitch imaging. Beside being the ultimate virus protection, and ultimate ant-hardware failure protection, and ultimate system corruption protection, it's also the ultimate uninstaller.
When you restore an image taken before you installed something, it's much better than any uninstall.
It was never there! Magic!

Then a previous image will be OK.
