Removing installed applications using their built-in uninstallers is the method most people use, as it’s pretty fast, simple, and convenient. This doesn’t mean it’s also a reliable method of getting rid of the applications you no longer need. Their default uninstallers can break and no longer allow you to remove the applications. Forcing their uninstallation is the remaining solution in such cases, and this can be performed only with specialized tools like the IObit Uninstaller. Furthermore, when removing installed programs using their built-in uninstallers, all kinds of files, folders and registry entries that belong to that application can remain in your system and consume precious disk space or contribute to a decrease in the system performance level. To ensure that such remaining files, folders, and registry entries are also deleted when uninstalling a program, using a specialized utility like IObit Uninstaller is recommended. It will scan for lefts behind residual entries after uninstalling an application and offer you to remove these entries when they’re detected.

As you can see, choosing to use IObit Uninstaller as your default app uninstaller will offer you plenty of benefits. It also comes with a file shredding utility that lets you permanently delete any sensitive data, beyond recovery. Creating restore points to safeguard your system against any potential unwanted changes can also be performed before every uninstallation.

IObit Uninstaller is also very easy-to-use. The straightforward and intuitive interface makes using this application a simple job even for complete beginners. It also allows sorting the listed installed applications by various criteria, such as their names, installation dates, or sizes, and it also provides lists with the installed toolbars or Windows updates, letting you uninstall any of them as well. A handy batch uninstalling function is included as well, which means that you will be able to save a lot of time when removing multiple applications at once, in bulk mode.

To sum it all up, IObit Uninstaller is a great tool that offers a lot of undeniable advantages. The fact that it’s also completely free makes it even more appealing. I can only recommend it with all my heart.

Ivan IObit Uninstaller is easily the best Windows uninstall utility I've come across. Browser toolbar and plug-in removal and well-designed interface make it a winner.

Guest #35870184 IObit Uninstaller is a wonderful program that lets you make sure that anything you delete is completely cleaned from your computer system. It's easy to use for those who are computer savvy, as well as for those a little less experienced.

It's a great way to keep your computer in the tip-top condition, it requires you to do some work, but also be in control.

Aashit Sable I think, IObit stands on 2nd rank. First is Revo; because of its shell context menu & scanning leftovers of previously removed programs.

Guest #36795852 To a degree I agree but I really like that even in the free version you can batch uninstall apps, I think this option is available in the paid for version, and fair enough.
