Revo Uninstaller is a handy alternative tool for uninstalling programs for Windows. If you have ever had trouble with uninstalling programs using Windows alone, you might noticed that some programs are stubborn and seemingly will not remove from your computer no matter what methods or tools you employ. Revo Uninstaller uses alternative methods for uninstalling even the peskiest of programs once and for all.

One of the Revo Uninstaller's strongest points is that it is extremely easy to use. Upon first use, you will notice that the main screen will display a list of all programs installed on your computer. You can right-click on any of the programs to access various tasks or information concerning them, or you can get right to uninstalling a program. Revo Uninstaller undergoes a thorough process each time it uninstalls an application. It also creates a restore point in the event that you want to revert any changes that have been made by Revo Uninstaller or if you find that something extra accidentally deleted along with the program in question.

When Revo Uninstaller begins the uninstallation process, it starts by removing system files and then combing through the registry and temporary files to wipe out any excess data associated with the program. Many uninstallers leave these types of things behind after an uninstallation; Revo Uninstaller does not. As Revo Uninstaller proceeds with the process of uninstalling a program, it will ask you during each step which files you want to keep and which ones you'd like to remove. It also provides two methods for removal in the event that one does not cut it. These are "Drag and Drop" and "Hunter."

"Hunter" is a method for uninstallation in Revo Uninstaller that allows you to use a target icon to indicate which programs, files, or folders that you had like gone forever. The target icon works with many different types of elements in the Windows OS. Whether you want to remove a desktop icon or a folder somewhere on your computer, you can use it to target what you want Revo Uninstaller to remove, and it will quickly be deleted. "Drag and Drop" works in a similar fashion. Rather than targeting files on the computer to be removed, the files can be dragged to the "Drag and Drop" area (an icon of a burning fire) to get rid of them.

There is not much to complain about with Revo Uninstaller. It takes care of annoying programs that simply will not go away with Windows uninstallation alone, and it is free of cost to you.
