I'm using Revo,and It's good to me. In general, all programs for this purpose do the same things as Revo...

I've never seen a single recommendation not to uninstall bloatware from a computer's hard drive, and it makes me wonder why anyone would allow 100,000's or even 1,000,000's of completely useless keys and values from those same uninstalled programs plus all other uninstalled sofware over time to continue to remain in and bloat the Registry?

Most of us reinstall frequently enough to keep registry bloat down. Show me a bona fide study that demonstrates increased performance from deleting unused and useless keys. Don't get me wrong; I use Revo and Ccleaner to removes keys form software and hardware I have uninstalled.

I never said that this was a performance issue only a housekeeping issue in that I eschew bloat of any kind even in the Registry!

PS- Many of us did not receive installation disks when we purchased our computers.

Revo is quite good, and clean, depends how you select uninstallation method.

Revo Uninstaller also keeps a detailed record of all Registry keys and values that have been removed for each and every program that it has uninstalled and in addition Revo does a full Registry Backup each day.
