How do you know which uninstaller is best to use when uninstalling a program ?

Actually it was not correct for me to say that those are all uninstallers. Currently I find that Soft Organizer does the best job but I might use Geek or similar if the program isn't listed in the list of programs that used Windows Installer when they were installed.

I will always perform a manual file and registry search in any case.

I understand that the OP doesn't want a 3rd party but I don't know of any way to do what the OP wants without a 3rd party program.

I've been trying a few command lines and powershell scripts but none of them list everything!

Yes you're correct of course. The OP has contradicted the question contained in the first post when posting the following:

It's still interesting to see what is listed by various methods.
No doubt you're a mad scientist

Thank you fellas for your research into this.

You are correct. I was hoping to find a Windows-only solution. But now it looks like I need a third party software to do that. So from all that were suggested, is there one that runs just from an exe, without the need to install anything?

CCleaner has a portable version here:
CCleaner - Builds

On the Tools / Uninstall window there is a Save to text file... button that saves a list of installed programs.

Or, can you get them to download and run TeamViewer Quick Support (portable) so you can connect remotely ?
