Sometimes uninstalling a program becomes a difficult process. Windows’ inbuilt Add/remove program tool isn’t always the perfect solution. It is slow and usually doesn’t remove all the traces of the application in your PC (like registry entries of the program).
Revo Uninstaller is a great replacement for Add/Remove programs in Windows and offers lots of functions to remove any program faster and completely from your computer. It can effectively remove unnecessary files, folders and registry keys related to the program.
Here are the steps to do it.
First, download and install Revo uninstaller. It opens with all the available programs on your computer. Also at the bottom it shows the total number of programs installed in your system.
Now double click on any program you want to remove. Suppose I want to uninstall Google talk application from my computer. So here I will double click on Google talk icon.
It will ask you to uninstall the program. Click on Yes button.
Now select an uninstall mode. There are various modes you can choose from. The best mode is the Advanced mode which removes all the traces of the program completely.
Now another important feature of Revo uninstaller is that it creates System restore point on the computer before uninstalling the app.
Click on Uninstall button.
Now click Next button. Revo uninstaller will check all the leftover items related to programs such as registry keys, unwanted files and folders etc. It’ll then show you the remaining traces of the program (if you chose the advanced mode) and then help you remove them.
One unique feature of Revo Uninstaller is the Hunter mode. You can click on hunter mode icon to activate it. It will show a small translucent icon on the top right of your desktop.
