Total Uninstall is very good functionally, but it's hindered by it's UI and some problems with the monitoring module. I tried using it for a while, but I returned to Revo Uninstaller.

Across Many, MANY Years, I have Thoroughly Tested About Eight Uninstallers.
As a result of this HUGE NUMBER OF HOURS of Grueling Testing, I have actually discovered that it is quite a SIMPLE matter to make this SUMMARY Statement about Windows Uninstallers!! –––

  • The Vast Majority of Uninstallers are "OKAY" — Most of them (with regard to removing EVERY File & Registry Value from the installation) do just slightly better than the Windows’ Native Uninstaller; Examples of "Just OK" Uninstallers include:: CCleaner; Wise; & Puran.
    I STRONGLY Recommend against using these Mediocre Uninstallers because, over time, your computer (especially its Registry) becomes Cluttered with Erroneous Junk that DOES Bog Down your computer!

  • Next UP is the Group of Uninstallers that are Actually "Good" about Locating & Removing Most of the Detritus that Lesser Uninstallers Leave Behind. Examples of "Good" Uninstallers include::
        "Advanced Uninstaller Pro" {& Surprisingly, this Competent Uninstaller is FREE!};
        "Uninstall Tool" (by CrystalIdea);  And
        "IObit Uninstaller PRO" {The Free Version ranks only “OKAY”}!

  • And Finally {& I Tested These TWO with Painstaking Thoroughness—spending a HUGE Amount of Time } –– These are the TWO Uninstallers that are Truly "OUTSTANDING" {Although, in my Opinion, One of them is Slightly BETTER– & I will tell you WHY—Below}.
    The Main Reason that BOTH •Revo & •Total Uninstall are Superior is because they are UNequaled at Hunting down & Removing the tiniest bit of leftovers from the install;
    Both of them include Excellent Help Files to answer all your questions;
    And Both of them allow the user to Select among varying degrees of Rigor in the Search for Remnants {TIP: Do NOT choose “Advanced Search”!! —Which Actually IS more Risky!}
    And Here’s a Key Difference Between •Revo & •Total Uninstall::  • If you Prefer “EASY”, you Will want to Choose Revo! Top-to-Bottom it is Designed to make a Thorough Uninstall a Piece of Cake for the User.

                             ————        ————

NOW TO CONCLUDE:: Here are the ReasonS that I Consider Total Uninstall (“T-O”) to be the World’s BEST Uninstaller:: A) Even when it UNinstalls an UNMonitored Install, T-O’s Search is SO Thorough, it is AS Complete as its Competitors’ MONITORED Installs! Simply Amazing!;

  B) And this Final UNIQUE T-O Feature makes it simply Awesome:: T-O includes a Module that WATCHES the type of detritus your computer generates in regular day-to-day (NON-Install) operation;  THEN, When it IS Monitoring an INSTALL, it will Totally EXCLUDE the day-to-day detritus from consideration during the INSTALLs—So that the Monitoring is Exceedingly Accurate––Simply Amazing!!
  { However!! This Point #B also comes with a Negative:: You simply DO Need to Read the T-O MANUAL — But the Manual is NOT Lengthy. }

Hi,

Let me start by saying i'm a fan of the good old Quarterdeck cleansweep before Norton bought it and destroyed a perfect product. Ever since i been searching for a good replacement.
I tried so many apps that i almost gave up.
Most uninstallers are just a fancy shell on top of what you already get in Windwows, they just give you the illusion that they are doing it better when in reality its exactly the same if not worse.

What i call a uninstaller is something that takes an image of your registry and hard-drive before the installation and compares to the registry and hard-drive once the installation is done. This is the only way to be certain everything is registered.
This process alone can be tricky and time consuming and many apps i tried have not done such a good job on both fronts.

Total Uninstall on the other hand always amazes me on how fast and reliable it can be. Its super easy to use and it provides a good interface. you do need to be careful the first times you use it and making sure your folder and registry for your other apps dont get included.
For me i had to exclude my Firefox and total commander folder and registry keys as these two apps are always running for me. But once you done that total uninstall does a fantastic job recording your installation and removing them later. I also like the backup. You can always restore what you remove in case of problem.

So as a summary i think this is the best uninstaller out there.
One last good thing is that the support is fantastic, they answer and fix your problem within a day. i have had on 3 occasion problem with my registration and key being used on to many installation and emailed them about it. They fixed it the day after. I just hate companies where you are not worth the time once you buy their product.
