Revo Uninstaller is a great program that replaces the Windows "Add / Remove Programs" function. This function in Windows can be slow and leave behind files / folders and traces in the registry. Does anyone want to keep that garbage? Probably not, because it usually slows down your PC with unwanted things that should have been removed in the first place.
Revo Uninstaller is better than the uninstalling options in Windows in many ways. It loads your program list much faster and allows you to change the views of your programs, so you can quickly look through them. There is also a great search function that takes out time spent searching for a specific program.
Revo Uninstaller will run the typical program uninstall, and once that has finished, it will scan for any extra files that may have been left behind.
Almost every program leaves some type of files behind. These files could be settings, profiles, or who knows what. Revo Uninstaller is truly a great alternative to Windows Add and Remove Programs, and it comes highly recommended from me.
