Note: This review addresses v1.83 of the product.

Revo Uninstaller solves an all-too-common problem: Programs whose uninstallation routines are sloppy. Not uncommonly, when you uninstall programs in Windows, they leave bits and pieces of themselves behind, such as Registry entries. This program promises to find all those bits and pieces and zap them so that when you uninstall software, your computer gets truly clean.

The program does more than just uninstall software. Revo Uninstaller also includes other cleaning tools, including an Autorun manager, that will show you all the programs that start on system startup--and lets you kill or remove any that you don't want run. And there's a very useful "Tracks Cleaner" that will remove traces of your browsing history, as well as traces left behind by Microsoft Office applications.

Note: This link automatically downloads the latest version of the software from the vendor's site.
