Which mode do you use it in? What is difference you have found in the modes, e.g. Intermediate vs Advanced. I get a lot of errors in Advanced Mode and haven't taken the time to study it out.

Can you explain the differences?
Dfferences between Revo and other two: as I said, I only tried free version of Revo, so it has a less functions and I don't remeber if it shows very details about the program.

Differences between Your and Total:

I haven't really compared the functions - i think they're much similar, but the main reason why Total is better I think that it is becase of this:

Your Uninstaller: http://i38.tinypic.com/oacis6.jpg
Total Uninstaller: http://www.ipix.lt/images/88658222.jpg

It's that Total shows a detailed list about the files of installed programs - and in Your uninstaller you only see icons of the programs.

However, I had an accident with Total: when removing Photoshop, it also deleted some anoother program files, don't remeber which now. Luckily, there was restore button

@Gregg, according to this your problem may be the fact that it does not work with 64 BIT. As I said I have not tried since I went to 64 bit with Vista, which was Dec 08.

If you have just installed a program a day or two ago, I would suggest system restore. You will be guaranteed that everything is back to normal.
I thought System Restore did not delete files, only restored the registry, sort of like ERUNT. Am I mistaken? Maybe that's just the way XP was.

System restore will remove programs. It will not change your files, folders, or documents. Windows 7 has back up and restore to return your documents to an earlier time and System Image to back up your hard drive. XP has a restore system not as good as Vista or Windows 7
