IOBit Uninstaller can help you uninstall the applications you no longer need. If you´re wondering why you would use such a tool when Windows already comes with a utility for this purpose, then you should continue reading and find out.

IOBit Uninstaller has a great interface, and just a few minutes will be enough to explore all the available features. You already know the main use of the tool, however, there are many other circumstances in which it can come in handy. First, it makes uninstalling decisions easier by classifying programs according to their size and frequency of use. Thus, if you desperately need to free some disk space, you can quickly uninstall one of those applications that occupy a lot of space and are seldom used. What I really liked about it is that you can easily mark various applications and the program will uninstall the whole batch for you. Moreover, if you find a program that can’t be uninstalled the regular way, you can use the forced uninstall instead.

Not only can stand-alone programs be uninstalled but also web browser extensions. These will be grouped according to the web browser that uses them. This procedure is quite useful to remove those undesirable toolbars that many programs install inadvertently. Besides, you can manage the applications that start with the system and reduce the time it takes to be fully responsive. More than just that, you can also uninstall the applications coming as a part of Windows installation. Probably the most useful feature of this app is that it can clean residual data and invalid shortcuts left behind after uninstalling software, as well as Windows patch cache and download folder. But the list of features does not end here, the tool also includes a shredder to wipe out the files you want to erase beyond recovery. Furthermore, the application can manage system restore points, and, as an extra, there are shortcuts to some Windows tools, as the scheduler, the registry editor and the security center.

In general, IOBit Uninstaller is definitely friendlier than Windows built-in program uninstaller. In addition, it is better at eliminating those traces that end up making you feel as if the programs were crawling instead of running on your computer. This is a tool I definitely recommend.

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.
