- Can’t queue up multiple applications or perform real-time software monitoring.
- Doesn’t remove browser toolbars or plug-ins.
Taking Out the Trash
Uninstalling apps is a breeze with Revo Uninstaller Pro v5.0.3 Crack. The utility doesn’t let you queue up multiple programs to uninstall as you can with Revo Uninstaller Pro, but you can delete them one at a time.
As mentioned earlier, when you uninstall an application, the removed software may leave junk files on your PC that may affect system performance. Fortunately, Revo automatically deletes those leftovers. You can even use it to remove any detritus from software you uninstalled before you got Revo.
You can remove programs by launching the full app or by activating its Hunter mode. You access then latter via a desktop widget, and you can use it to kill processes, stop auto-starting apps, or uninstall programs. It’s an incredibly useful addition that I would like to see other uninstallers adopt.
Revo Uninstaller Pro v5.0.3 Crack removed Norton Utilities ($99.99 at Amazon UK) , Steam, and other applications without a hitch, but it lacks a cool feature found in IObit Uninstaller—the ability to uninstall browser toolbars and plug-ins. For example, I used Revo to search for the Alexa plug-in for Chrome, but the application didn’t recognize it as being installed on my PC. On the other hand, when I used IObit Uninstaller, it quickly located and removed the Alexa plug-in.
Unfortunately, Revo Uninstaller Pro v5.0.3 Crack also lacks real-time software monitoring, a feature found in both Comodo Programs Manager and IObit Uninstaller. This can identify potential future leftover files at the time of installation. As a result of this omission, Revo takes a bit longer to complete the uninstall process. On the upside, this free version now performs clean uninstalls of 64-bit apps—something that was once a feature reserved for Revo Uninstaller Pro.
It Tunes Up PCs, Too
Revo Uninstaller Pro v5.0.3 Crack functions as a very lightweight PC tune-up utility, too. Not only does Revo Uninstaller delete programs, but its Junk Files Cleaner removes temporary files and can clear your browser cache and history. The useful AutoRun Manager aids the tune-up process by letting you determine which programs load when you start your computer, thereby improving the PC’s boot time. Finally, Backup Manager lets you recover deleted registry entries in case something goes wrong with an uninstall. These tools are atypical of uninstall software, and they make Revo Uninstaller an attractive offering.
That said, Revo Uninstaller is missing the defrag tools found in our top-rated tune-up utility, the Editors’ Choice-winning Iolo System Mechanic ($99.99 at Amazon UK) . You can, however, use Revo’s Unrecoverable Delete to permanently delete files in your PC’s Recycle Bin so that they can’t be recovered by prying eyes.
Revo Uninstaller Pro v5.0.3 Crack lets you uninstall programs with ease, it performs light PC cleanup, and it’s free. But IObit Uninstaller retains the crown as our top pick for uninstall utilities, thanks to its real-time software monitoring and browser toolbar and plug-in removal features. Still, the free Revo Uninstaller is a solid tool that can aid in uninstalling and permanently deleting programs. It’s well worth a download.
