Many times when I uninstall something off my computer, the things I uninstall usually leave lots of unneeded files and registry entries. It becomes pretty annoying when all this stuff stack up and take unneeded space or create conflicts. Icing on the cake, sometimes the uninstallers don't even work and you have to manually clean out a whole program...
After being annoyed at stuff like this, I started a research to see if there's any software which would help me to get rid of all these problems, and I found Revo Uninstaller Pro. You can find more information about Revo Uninstaller Pro here.
The main function of the software, as you will appreciate, is to uninstall software. In order to do this, the software follows a 3 step process which consists of making a system restore point, uninstalling with the integrated uninstaller, and cleaning the leftovers by scanning.
This way, if you uninstalled something which will cause a problem, you can just system restore without any problems, (I disabled the feature cause I doubt I need it) and you won't have any leftover files which will annoy you later on.
It also has extra features like cleaning your browsers' caches, cleaning the recent documents history of your Microsoft Office, and cleaning things in Windows such as the clipboard, temporary files and many more which I will be showing in the picture.
The Evidence Remover tool is also a quite nice tool in my opinion. It makes sure that the stuff you delete from your hard drive is totally unrecoverable by recovery softwares which I covered in one of my older posts. Note that this will only works for the deleted files, so you can safely use this to make sure noone digs out information off your hard drive.
Unrecoverable Delete tool is the alternative for Evidence Remover tool, where you can select files on your hard drive which will be deleted completely like the Evidence Remover does to your deleted files. It's better than deleting files by using Windows' own deleting tool since it won't give any room for recovery.
Junk Files Cleaner is a scanning utility which scans for the leftover files from the previous uninstalls you've done without Revo Uninstaller Pro. It is a good idea to run it once in a while just to make sure that every leftover file is cleaned and gone.
Autorun Manager is something that I don't really use since I'm used to using msconfig and it works just good for me, but it's simply a Startup manager where you can add/remove programs to/from your startup.
Lastly, there's the Hunter Mode, which is sort of an interesting feature. When you click Hunter Mode, you will get a crosshair which you can drag on the items on your desktop. After you successfully drag the crosshair on one of the windows (I use chrome for this example), it will give you choices such as uninstalling it, killing it, or removing it from the startup. I can't say I used it, but it looks like a really interesting feature which I might be using later on.
That would be all the features of Revo Uninstaller Pro. It's a really good software to have in your after-format software package, since I'm sure you will need something like this one day or another.
I hope you enjoyed the read!
