Developer’s description

Revo Uninstaller Pro helps you to uninstall software and remove unwanted programs installed on your computer easily! Even if you have problems uninstalling and cannot uninstall them from “Windows Add or Remove Programs” control panel applet.

Revo Uninstaller is a much faster and more powerful alternative to “Windows Add or Remove Programs” applet! It has very powerful features to uninstall and remove programs.

Main Features of Revo Uninstaller Pro

  • Uninstaller
  • Forced Uninstall
  • Real-Time Installation Monitor
  • Multi-Level Backup System
  • Hunter Mode
  • Junk Files Cleaner
  • Windows Tools
  • Autorun Manager
  • Browsers Cleaner
  • MS Office Cleaner
  • Windows Cleaner
  • Evidence Remover
  • Unrecoverable Delete

A. Uninstaller

It is similar to the default window’s Add/remove programs, but it also scans for leftovers with even more advanced algorithms that are so precise, fast and very effective in search for leftovers of Windows Services, Drivers, File associations, Shell Extensions, COM components, Windows Installer components, program settings and more.

B. Forced Uninstall

This component is useful to remove leftovers of programs that are already uninstalled, incomplete installations and uninstall remnants of programs. There would be cases while during installation system will reboot, etc and on trying to install again, it would say you already have the product installed and should remove before re-installing. For example we are installing some Security Software, it shows an error that your previous xyz product is not removed. Forced Uninstall comes handy in these cases as it removes all the leftout remains of the programs.

C. Real-Time Installation Monitor

This is the one of the main feature of Revo. It is used to monitor the installations so that we could see what all changes a software has made to our system, -including registry & drives. The good part is it is very simple and easy to use. For example, if you have anything to monitor, do a right click and select install with Revo. It would open a small rectangular window on the top of your screen showing that it is monitoring. Upon installation, click on save. Once saved you could see the monitored installation under “Traced Program” tab of the Revo interface.

D. Multi-Level Backup System

This is the default backup which consists of backups of removed registry keys, values, files and folders. In addition to this it also has other levels of the backup system such as:
# Creating system restore point before each uninstall
# Full Registry backup before each uninstall
# Full Registry backup once each day Revo Uninstaller Pro is started

The Multi-Level Backup System ensures that if some changes are made to the system by mistake, they could be undone.

E. Hunter Mode

This is an interesting feature in Revo- the cruel Hunter.

It helps to uninstall any software by just dragging it to the hunter icon shown above. Or you could take the hunter icon on the program, even if it is open. Once selected for uninstallation, it shows further information.

F. Junk Files Cleaner

This is yet another junk files cleaner. I didn’t notice anything special in this feature. This could be temporary files which are used during installations .tmp, etc. You could configure the Junk Files Cleaner options.

G. Windows Tools

As per the developer this feature gives fast, one-click access to more than ten Windows utilities used in daily PC management. Available tools are: System Restore, Network Diagnostics, Network Information, Security Center, System Properties, System Information, TCP/IP Netstat Command, On-Screen Keyboard, Disk Defragmenter, Services, Shared Folders, Group Policy.

H. Autorun Manager

This feature lists all the things that start at Windows startup. You could then enable or disable from auto starting at Windows startup, if you want to do. It gives detailed information such as the program’s publisher, description, launch path (where it is saved on your computer), status of the application (if it’s running or not).

I. Browsers Cleaner

It is like any other browser cleaner. Nothing special to say about this feature. It supports only Firefox, Internet Explorer, Netscape and Opera.

J. MS Office Cleaner

This allows deleting the history of most recently used files in MS Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint and Front Page. It supports MS Office-2000, 2003 and 2007. Still no support for 2010.

K. Windows Cleaner

This feature helps cleaning the following:

#search history when you search for file and folders
#recently opened document history
#open/save history used in standard open/save dialogs from different applications
#start menu clicks history
#last opened registry key history

L. Evidence Remover

This is used to do a complete removal of Windows Recycle Bin data, making it impossible to recover the deleted data.

M. Unrecoverable Delete

I found this same as Evidence Remover, as it functions the similar way.

The Bad:

1. There is no context menu (right click) option to quickly uninstall any software. Most of the others similar software’s such as Advanced Uninstaller Pro provides this option.
2. No support for 2010 in MS Office Cleaner feature.
3. Confusion between Evidence Remover & Unrecoverable Delete features.

  1. Thanks for the contest ReoUninstaller pro is an excellent tool not only to uninstal softs but also to clean windows in a such way so that there will be no left over files and so will keep windows cleaner.

  2. I use the free version and to have the additional features would be great to uninstall softwares and clean up the system , so i would like to be included in this giveaway please.

  3. Right now I am using a free alternative for uninstalling… But this free alternative does not do something different from the builded in “Add/Remove programs”…
    Revo Uninstaller has a lot more functionality, and I would be happy if I have the licensed version of this product…

  4. Another great giveaway. I’d love to win one license because I tried the pro version and it was very good, now I only have the free version.

  5. Revo Uninstaller is one of my favorite pieces of software. My addiction to constantly trying new freeware programs, most of which turn out to be junk or not any better than what i already have, means I’m constantly having to uninstall programs. Revo has never given me any problems or let me down. I’ve been using the free version for years, but have had a little time with the pro version in trials, and think it’s great. Awesome giveaway guys…hope I get lucky!

  6. Hi, thanks for this nice giveaway.

    Currently using the free version, and really amazed of its basic feature, specially the advance uninstall which scan all the application leftover, so I would really like to win one of those Pro license.

  7. I only know Revo Uninstaller (the free version) by reputation. Relying of my own knowledge proved to be insufficient to properly get rid of some bad software. With the additional capabilities of the Pro version, Revo Uninstaller Pro would be able to replace several tools I’m currently using.

  8. Thnx again for another fine giveaway offer. Have been using the free version and would certainly appreciate getting this Pro version with its added features of the Real-time installation monitor, Forced uninstal and multilevel back-up system, among others.

  9. I test-install a lot of new software all the time, and have always been using the freeware build of Revo uninstaller to remove such and cleanse my system of clutter they leave behind without reboot.

    With its more powerful added features, I’ve wanted to upgrade to the Revo Uninstaller Professional version.

    I hope that this promo giveaway can help me obtain one.

    Thanks for the opportunity, Av.

  10. Revo Uninstaller Pro can perfectly uninstall the program, even if you uninstall Windows will not work. Removes rubbish from the traditional left to uninstall

    Revo Uninstaller is excellent uninstall softwares.

  11. You did an excellent review grr and I surely would like to have a license of this for my laptop. I only used revo free once and it didn’t do nothing compared to the pro version.

  12. Another great ABC giveaway!

    Revo Uninstaller is the best uninstallation program I’ve ever used. Right now I’m using a pro trial and it’s been very useful. I used to use programs like Perfect Uninstaller and JV Powertools, but this tops them.

    I got into using Revo when it helped me with a tricky uninstall. I had tried using PU and JV, but it never fully removed the program (leftover registry keys). I then tried an advanced scan on the pro trial, and it worked…first try!

    The trial will expire soon, so I would really like to win a licence.

  13. I use all the time with the free version, it is great.
    The PRO version has many additional features that make the program even better.
    And with my installing and uninstalling the frequency of the programs PRO version with the monitor system for me would be the best solution.

  14. I have subscribed to AvinashTech eamil newsletter.
    I used Revo Free before & for time being got no 3rd party uninstallers.Everytime I only use the Windows Add/Remove then manually delete the leftovers & registry data.
    I hope can win a license for the Revo Pro to uninstall accordingly.
    Please count me in.

  15. Hi Avinash, thanks again for another excellent giveaway. I’m a Revo fan, but unfortunately I’ve never had the possibility to use the pro version. I use the free version for several years. It would be a really christmas gift to win a Revo Pro license. Please count me in. Thanks in advance. Cheers.

  16. I participated a few times giveaway of this software, but always failed and I can not use the free version because my windows version 64 bit, hopefully this time I was lucky

  17. Chyba najlepszy program do usuwania zbędnych pozostałości po programach.
    Jest bardzo skuteczny – i dużo lepszy od innych aplikacji tego typu.
    Great giveaway.

  34. Cool, review. Revo uninstaller is a must have and If you get pro edition it is always better. Am using pro edition for the last 1 year. And i must say that i have not uninstalled anything with out using it. You will be surprised by the left overs of few applications.

  35. This is one of the best uninstaller software, I’ve been using its free version for a long time now and is very impressed with it, but would love to win a license so that I can upgrade it to pro version and enjoy most out of it.

    Thanks a lot for this great giveaway.

  36. Thanks for this giveaway sir.
    I want Revo unistaller because apart from an uninstaller it has so many other useful features like “privacy eraser” and it also has “startup items removal” options,so i don’t have to use other privacy cleaning utility, and i can also save my hard disk space.Hope i win one of the license key.

  37. Hi Av,

    This is really a great program and a great giveaway. I have the pro version already so please don’t put me in the drawing but I wouldn’t use anything else to uninstall programs. Besides having so many extra features, it is THE best program for making sure that what you want to uninstall is completely uninstalled.

    Thanks for another great giveaway

    Again, keep my name out of the hat

  38. I wish to use Revo Uninstaller Pro because it’s great app,so I would love to have a license.When apps uninstalling by self they don’t delete nothing(junk files,registry keys,temporary files) and you have mess in your comp for nothing.

  49. I have been using the Revo uninstaller free version and the pro version would be really great. Please count me in. Thanks a lot.

  50. Hi
    I would like Revo Uninstaller Pro to help me in maintaining the efficiency of the system by carefully uninstalling programs which I test a lot and often end up reinstalling the operating system.
    Please, count me in.

  51. Thanks avi for such nice giveaway.I think my machine is incomplete without revo pro as i used to install and uninstall different software to give a try and revo is best to uninstall them completely.Please consider me for this giveaway

  52. well, this one of the best uninstaller, i’m using the free version, and it really works good, how much more is the pro version , wish i’ll win one license. really great offer, thanks alot…

  53. Nice review Grr!

    It’s a good software that pointed out many drawbacks in functionalites in Windows.
    I hope M$ do something to make up for this in future releases. From Windows 7 I’ve noticed they helped it up by enhance the startmenu and related folders to become cleaned up when uninstall software but the registry is still there with all it’s leftovers if using the original applet.

    Interesting Revo has an builtin monitor feature, haven’t read about that one before:)
    If someone wana try a free complement for Revo I recently found one that has similar features but less flashy GUI Don’t know how good it is compared with Revo though. Otherwise I been using Revo free version for some time and see it as a great help to have.

    Would be fun to try the Pro version if there is a small chance:D
    Good luck everyone!
    Cheers //Emil

  54. Hi,
    Thanks for the giveaway. This tool always remains in my toolbox, not the pro version, bu the free version. But i’d really lke to win a license of the pro version. Afterall the features it has got are awesome, eg. the forced uninstall and installation monitoring etc.

    So, pls count me in.

  55. Like everyone else I’m impressed by the thoroughness of this uninstaller. Sounds like a much better solution than system restore or restoring a system image file after testing new software.
    and yes, nice review Grr 🙂

  56. I’ve been using a free version of Revo for a long time and I think this application is a must have for every Windows user since its own uninstaller is mediocre at best. Please count me in.Thanks

  57. This would be good for my 64 bit laptop as the regular free version is not suitable for 64 bit computing.

    So please count me in for this one, thank you!

  58. i have never tried the a pro version uninstaller and revo seems pretty interesting..
    hope to win a license..
    nice review Grr bhai.. 🙂

  59. Well who wouldn’t want a license of Revo Uninstaller Pro.It’s the “gold standard” of software uninstallers.Currently I use the free edition(thanks to “Techsupportalert’s” recommendation).However,I sorely miss the “real time installation monitor” feature which is available only in the pro edition.So definitely count me in the giveaway please.

  60. Hi there,
    I currently have Ashampoo Uninstaller 2010 on my laptop which I grabbed during a promo.Given a chance,I would love to make the switch to Revo pro.So do include me in the the raffle pls…

  61. Proper uninstalls would be nice, especially since I prefer not to rebuild my computer. The real time monitoring is good and the forced uninstall would be handy. I can’t remember how many times I have had to go and delete the program folder after an uninstall because files were left behind. I hate to think what wasn’t removed from the registry.

    How does Grr find the time to do these comprehensive reviews anyway, not to mention replying to the comments.

  62. it does more than uninstalling simply and we dont need to buy registry cleaners …..
    im also havin free version …plz give one .. thanx

  63. I have the free version.I think is a good product and would love to have the pro version.Revo uninstaller pro cheers for you!!!


  64. Having this software will be great because i have used the free version and its not bad.It would be great to get a free license for revo uninstaller pro.I do alot of downloading and uninstalling, so my pc do slow down and having this software will get rid of all the leftovers!
