Windows 7: Anyone Using Revo Uninstaller ?

03 Jan 2010   #21

W7x64 Pro, SuSe 12.1/** W7 x64 Pro, XP MCE

I haven't had any disasters with Revo yet, but I thought that I nearly did. When I decided to upgrade my sound card drivers a bit ago, instead of uninstalling each, one at a time, I highlighted all of them, hoping that it would handle them sequentially. Actually, it only uninstalled the first item, but also removed the uninstall icons for the rest of the items in Revo. Fortunately, the Creative driver installation detected each of these and uninstalled them, before proceeding with each install. I won't blame Revo for this, just a fickle fingered operator.

These programs make me wonder what to add to powdered water. I mean, what do I use to uninstall it?

Registry Backup ?


I have a new HP PC.

When I did the initial backup to an external HD, which took several hours the first time, and I believe it was an "image" type of backup, does this also backup (all) the registry settings ?

Or, should I do something else now ?

Guess I'll avoid Revo Uninstaller !
BTW: anyone else have this experience ?

An image backup will include all of your registry settings. You can also backup the registry manually.

Also that reminds me there's a nice free utility for backing up the important hives in the registry called ERUNT. There's an autobackup utility that comes with it. Put a shortcut to the autobackup in the Startup folder. In the Target line, if you use these parameters.. %SystemRoot%\ERDNT\#Date# sysreg curuser otherusers /days:7

you will end up with a revolving backup for the last 7 days(assuming you reboot or log off every day.) After 7 days the oldest entry is deleted. The space used is nearly constant once you have a week of backups in the folder. It checks the dates of the backups it makes so that you don't get yet another backup on every system start or login. Just the first time that day.

ERUNT works on every NT based Windows flavor.

Just google for the download link. It's probably in the free programs list for W7 too.

Long time Revo User. I now use the pro version which is a little better laid out and rather quicker. Obviously I think this is an excellent program, never, not once, has it removed something which has caused a problem - and I use it a lot. I suspect some of the competitors do a similar job. I have used Smarty Uninstaller too. It was excellent also - no issues at all. Smarty comes bundled with lots of other goodies (like a startup and a process manager and a shortcut cleaner) - no hesitation recommending it.

I am going to explain an event and let you all decide what it means. I had SuperAntispyware and Revo Free. Revo did not show the SAS program, so I used windows uninstaller. Well it left a stopped process which was causing errors. I reloaded SAS and tried IObit Uninstaller. It did not show the program, but lets you browse to the folder and pick the program. It too did not work. I downloaded and installed Revo Pro 30 trial, and reinstalled SAS. When I ran Revo Pro it showed SAS which is a 64 bit program, which I believe Revo Free will not do, and it using the Advanced mode created a restore point, IIRC a registry backup and then uninstalled SAS. I let it scan for leftovers and deleted them. On reboot the SAS program was gone as was the stopped process that had caused my error events. I have not noticed any faults with W7 as of yet. Been maybe a week. If it doesn't mess up, I am going to buy it. Beats Restore Points which the two times I needed them, they didn't work and a System Image which up until now was the only true way for my feeling of security to undelete a program. YMMV

Using the free, portable version. When I run the program, it doesn't show all the installed programs. One, in particular, that is missing is the AMD Catalyst Install Manager. Recycled the program I had and D/L again. Same result. Anyone else have the same situation ?
