Hi panais

I know this isnt the answer you are looking for but the best on is the cpanel add/remove programs. Any other can and will leave fragments behind. It may work or may not. Why di you think you need a different one?

I am experimenting with Revo Uninstaller and it seems to be OK.

By default, it simply runs the program's uninstall routine, as would be done from add/remove programs.

After that finishes, there are options to dig into the registry in 3 separate stages: deep, deeper, and deepest.

You can go to these 3 steps if you want to, individually, or go no farther than add/remove programs would have done.

I have used it 3 or 4 times. Each time, the default step did in fact leave registry entries behind, but going through the additional three steps removed them.

So far so good, YMMV, etc.

I swear by Revo, i think it's a good tool.
It creates a restore point automatically each uninstall, cleans up junk files, obsolete reg keys etc.

I swear by Revo too,. but you also have to do a search in the Registry.

For those who don't understand Revo,. here's how it works.

It first creates a restore point
Then it runs the programs regular Uninstaller
Then it searches for leftover file and registry entries.
