How to Permanently Delete Unwanted Software From Your PC

Revo Uninstaller is a Free Windows utility program scans your computer for any leftover traces after a standard uninstall and removes them from your PC; also comes in a portable version for use on a USB flash drive.

Anybody who’s been around computers long enough knows that if your trying to remove an unwanted program simply uninstalling it isn’t enough. Programs always leave traces behind, at the very least registry entries that tell the computer how to behave when it interacts with it. Even when the program’s long gone they’re still there, and over time leftover registry entries can add up and slow you system down.

Revo Uninstaller is a Windows Utility program that runs the selected program’s built-in uninstaller, but after the uninstall has completed, it will search and remove any leftover files or registry entries that the uninstaller may have left on the user’s hard drive. It also comes in a portable version so you can run it from a USB flash drive on the go.

Using Revo Uninstaller is just as easy, if not easier than, using the stock Windows program removal utility.

After you finish downloading and installing Revo Uninstaller, select the program you wish to uninstall.

Confirm the program to remove.

Select a type of Uninstall Mode:

  1. 1. Built-in: Basic option similar to Windows standard Add/Remove Program utility.
  2. 2. Safe (Fastest Mode): Includes Built-in mode plus its performs additional scans in the registry and on the hard drive for leftover files that are safe to delete.
  3. 3. Moderate: Includes Safe mode and performs an extended scan to find all of the application’s leftover information in the most common places in the Registry and on the hard drive.
  4. 4. Advanced (Slowest Mode): Includes Moderate mode and performs a deep and thorough scan to find all of the application’s leftover information in the Registry and on the hard drive.

Press next.

Next again.

Verify the leftover registry items and select which to delete (almost always all of them).

Verify the leftover files and folders, and also select which to delete.

And that’s it. Your PC will thank you for keeping it clean and uncluttered by working a bit faster than before.

There’s a Pro Version of Revo Uninstaller available for $39.95, but the free version does just fine.

Stay tuned.
