Revo Uninstaller Pro Review.
Revo Uninstaller Pro easily removes any software application installed on your computer. The program is indispensable and much better than the built-in Windows removal tool. It performs uninstallation faster and more safely thanks to some powerful features. With the help of an advanced and quick uninstallation algorithm Revo Uninstaller analyzes the application before removal and scans for leftover files so you can safely delete them and keep your system clean and stable.
The interface of the program is highly customizable. You can add or remove toolbars and customize the appearance according to your taste. It consists of a Menu Bar (File, View, Modules, Commands, Tools and Help), Commands Toolbar, Main Toolbar and Tools Toolbar (placed at the left side of the main window).
In the main window is a list of all installed programs found on your system. By default the program offers an Icon view but you can change it to List or Details by simply selecting them from the View menu. All applications are grouped according to their installation date as New Programs (i.e. the programs that were installed within the last seven days; you can change this duration in the Option menu) and Other Programs (i.e. the programs installed prior to the last seven days).
If you do not like the default grouping of the programs Revo Uninstaller allows you to sort them by groups-Internet, Games, Multimedia and Utilities or even create a new group. In the Details View the program shows various bits of information about the installed program- its size, version and type; install date, company name and website link; uninstall string and registry key.
With a right click on the program you can get additional functions- search at Google, open the installed programs folder location or registry keys, add comments and change the icon. In the Option Menu you are able to change the visual theme, background and selection color.
Revo Uninstaller has unique capabilities. It not only helps to uninstall programs but also to remove all traces of the application. The uninstallation process is as easy as ABC. You can uninstall the programs with the help of a right click to the mouse or simply highlight it and click “Uninstall” on Commands Toolbar.
Before uninstallation the program creates a full registry backup and system restore point. The program offers three different scanning modes- Safe (the fastest mode; Revo performs a ‘leftovers’ scan in the registry and on the hard drive), Moderate (performs an extended scan) and advanced (the slowest mode, performs a deep and thorough scan).
By default the program offers Moderate mode. Just choose one of three modes and click “Scan”. After scanning Revo Uninstaller will give detailed information about all leftover items; simply check them individually or click “Select All” and then “Next”. After that the program creates a thorough record for the found leftover files and folders- their path, size and date. Select all of them and click “Finish”. Quick Uninstall is typically the same as those modes mentioned above except for one difference, the program automatically deletes the leftover files.
You can uninstall more than one program simultaneously in Quick Uninstall mode. Revo has a very useful feature called Forced Uninstall. It is specifically created to find remnants of previously uninstalled or incomplete program installs. In order to remove the remnants of such programs click “Forced Uninstall” on the Commands Toolbar, write the exact name or specify a full path to the program’s file. Here, as in other uninstall modes, you should select one of scanning modes and click “Next”. The program creates a full registry backup and system restore then shows all found leftover files and folders. After clicking on “Delete” all the identified remnants will be deleted.
With the help of Revo Uninstaller you can not only uninstall programs but also install them safely. You can install any application by clicking on it with your right mouse button and selecting the menu option. Revo Uninstaller will then monitor the installation process and trace all system changes. After installation you can save a log file which contains information concerning these changes. All traced programs will be placed in a special section of Revo- Traced Programs.
The advantages of installation with Revo monitor are indubitable because it tracks and monitors everything, so you can safely remove the traced program later; no leftover files on the drive or random keys remaining in your registry. The program also has a powerful backup manager. All changes are automatically backed up and stored. You can restore all deleted registry items, files and folders at any time.
Revo Uninstaller Pro has a unique and innovative feature called Hunter Mode. After switching to this mode a little blue icon will appear on your desktop. With the help of this icon you are able to perform various operations without opening the main window of the program. Just press the icon, move it to the program shortcut on the desktop and select one of the actions offered by Revo- Uninstall, Stop Auto Starting, Kill Process, Open Containing Folder, etc.
