For well-known reasons, some programs and add-ons simply refuse to leave your PC once you no longer need them. The problem is that some of them install on your system without your consent and, in time, they prove to be the most stubborn of all. IObit Uninstaller is capable of getting rid of all them in a snap, and remove all the leftovers they tend to leave behind in one single uninstall process.

IObit Uninstaller is a totally free tool. That in itself is already a great bonus, but the amazing thing is that apart from removing any malicious (or not) software program from your system, it offers you a wide range of other similarly practical and useful tools. Thus, it comes with a Startup Manager to help you remove from the Windows startup those programs that shouldn’t be there. Likewise, it offers you quick access to the list of running processes, which you can simply end or even uninstall completely from here. Obsolete Windows Updates can also be removed from here, thus freeing up valuable disk space.

There are other new tools worth mentioning – the Cleanup Residual, the Uninstall History, and the File Shredder. All of them have been designed to clean up your system from unnecessary and junk files that don’t necessarily need to be there any longer. It is true that the program’s main functionality is its ability to uninstall everything your Windows uninstaller can’t, but all these other useful utilities are also necessary to get rid of all traces left behind by these apps once and for all.

Another great advantage is the way the information is presented to the user. It is not only that you can access all programs and plug-ins from IObit Uninstaller without even opening your browsers or your Windows Control Panel, but also that all those programs and add-ons have been so neatly organized and categorized that finding the right app is extremely easy. Thus, you can see a list of all your programs, or only those that have been added recently (with or without you knowing it), or the largest ones, or those you haven’t used for ages. So it’s not only about getting rid of unwanted programs or toolbars, it’s also a clever way of periodically cleaning up your system from programs you may not even remember that they were there.

All of these extra tools, its clear and intuitive interface, and – most of all – its efficient way of removing all your unwanted or unneeded software tools make IObit Uninstaller a must for all Windows users.

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.
