On the contrary, there is a function called Backup Manager. Obviously, it is not equivalent to a true backup from an image, but it does appear to be for the purpose of reversing prior actions.
Where is it?

I see, you have the pro version. I only have the free one. The free version has no backup option.

I didn't pay much attention to versions, I just downloaded what I found, without paying for it, I haven't seen any nag screens, but it does have a register option in the help menu. I haven't seen anything talking about time limits so far either. If there is some kind of functionality limit this way, I haven't run into it, but then I haven't used it much either.

I'm not one to pay as much as they want for this type of software, but I won't make a decision at the moment. I'll wait until I've had more time with it. That backup function alone might make it worth the price. Too often, I've had problems uninstalling a program via Programs and Features, so this could be the answer.

option ?

I've used it for quite some time now. It really does a decent job for uninstalling. I always use the advanced mode but have once had one of those almost gotchas. Luckily I always inspect what file/reg items are going to be deleted and happened to notice that the list was quite long. Somehow, wires got crossed on the item I was uninstalling causing Revo to display for deletion alot of things that actually went with another program. Anywho, that was with a wayback version. Advice, always carefully inspect the items for deletion. Most always they are easily recognized as belonging to the app you are uninstalling

I used it with great success on my old Windows XP machine. Never had one single problem deleting anything left over in the registry. Ran into a nightmare using it on Windows 7 however. Deleted a bunch of registry items just like always. Messed up my computer so bad I had to do a complete restore using the built in Compaq software. Luckily I use Acronis True Image and I had a two day old image. Took over an hour to get things back to where they were. Could have all been avoided if I had only backed up the registry first. Another lesson lerned.
