I've been using Revo Uninstaller on both my x86 and x64 computers for many years and when it comes to removing GB after GB of bloatware or in day to day use Revo always leaves the Registry free of unneeded keys and values.

This years i tried many free and some paid uninstallers.
My <<test>> for uninstallers are some old alawar/lolo games,those things sometimes live fragments behind what ever you try,i tried and other programs but those are very besetting!!that's why i test with them.
Uninstaller pro 100% left nothing behind!
Revo clean 95% left one file behind.
Free Uninstaller 80%
And others worst than that.
Hint:Revo free cannot see all files installed on ur pc,netframwork,visualC++ etc,for those you need the paid version.
Anyway i believe is matter of taste/usage

I couldn't agree more. On one Revo Uninstall of an HP program that was not functioning properly on my Win 7 x64 computer Revo found and deleted 6,855 of its files! I'm very glad I didn't have to hunt them all down myself and manually delete them!

Use the installed programs uninstaller 1st,
then, and only then, look to some alternate method of uninstallation.

I agree with Shark for uninstalling general software. I do not agree when trying to uninstall any security software. Another example is is Java. One needs to use a Java uninstall tool get rid of all the Java remnants. Windows uninstaller simply does not do it.

Revo Uninstaller creates a System Restore point, uses the program's built-in uninstaller first and then only goes on to cleanse the leftover registry entries, files and folders.

For your codecs, however, I go to the "HELP" screen and uninstall from there as per instructions.
