Revo Uninstaller is primarily designed to ensure programs are properly removed from your computer. Revo is freeware and is available to all those who want to ensure their computer is clean and working at its best.
Revo Uninstaller Features
Installing Revo is a simple as any other program. Once you’ve installed and started Revo, you are presented with a list of currently installed programs (Figure 1.) From there, you can right click on a program and select uninstall (Figure 2.) You can also look the program up on Google if you are not sure where it came from or if you just need more information before making the decision to uninstall it.

Revo also comes with other features, such as Hunter, which allows you to simply click on a running program and uninstall it. This is really useful if you find a program running, but have no idea how to get rid of it.
Revo also integrates many Windows tools and helps you maintain your system for error-free computing.
Uninstalling Programs with Revo
Uninstalling a program with Revo is a little more complicated than through the standard Add/Remove Programs interface; this is only because Revo gives you more options. When you choose to uninstall a program, you are given four options for uninstalling your program (Figure 3):
Moderate is generally the safe mode to go with. This mode uses the program’s standard uninstaller and then scans your system for left over files.

Revo then takes the first steps to uninstall your program by using the program’s built in uninstaller (Figure 4.)

After running the program’s built in uninstaller, Revo will then scan your drive for other left over traces (Figure 5.)

Revo will then show you everything it finds and give you the option to remove the left-over registry keys (Figure 6.)

Finally, Revo will show you any files that are left over and give you the option to remove them from your hard drive.
