Same here. I have paid as much as $600 for software and don't have an issue with that but, if I can find free software that will meet my needs as well, I usually see no point in paying for the same thing.

Have used Nir Sofer software for many years, for specialist tasks, just be aware that it is possible that it will trigger Antivirus or Antimalware alerts - depending on your system. This is due to some of the "Advanced" techniques used to achieve the results he gets. Some of His programs are seen to use, (White Hat), Hacking methods to access system information so trigger alerts.

I Have never known any actual issues but you may need to add some programs to your exception list to prevent them being Flagged/Removed as PUPs

Not used the uninstaller as I have other software, so this may not apply to the particular software but always best to be aware

For more on the subject of Nir's false positives check the second question down on his FAQs page: http://www.nirsoft.net/faq.html Then click on the 'Click here' link.

From there see his blog link: Antivirus companies cause a big headache to small developers.

My Zemana antimalware has UninstallView as clean.
VirusTotal has it as 1/60: Palo Alto Networks (Known Signatures) generic.pup

Link to my scan at VT: UninstallView

I've never had any problems with Nir's programs and will use them should the need arise.

That's a very serious problem for all but the largest software developers (one of the many problems antiviruses create). In his website he warns about it himself:

Antivirus Problems
Antivirus companies cause a big headache to small developers.

I tried it but it didn't meet my needs. I have a few uninstallers for various reasons but the one that's got me out of a hole a few times is Bulk Crap Uninstaller. The setup file also contains the portable version which is what I use. It will give your brain a workout for sure.
