    Hi Ted,
    I use the PRO version just for the reason stated in the article... Also the Free version ( when i was using it) didn't support a 64 bit OS For my 32 bit OS's i use the free version ... Thanks for the link Regards Fred

    I also use the Pro version for the same reasons. Just thought others might want to know as well.

    I absolutely refuse to spend money on software that is specifically designed to uninstalls other software.
    To me it seems so completely wrong.


    Uninstall Programs Manually
    One thing the article doesn't mention is stopping any potential service associated with the program first and removing it from the system tray.

    CLiNT,
    Hello... Let me explain I have two pay for "un-installer" One is Revo, and the other is "Total Uninstall 5" The Uninstaller is not the most important part...The best part is once you "Analyze" a new install you can completely remove it (like before it was there).... or re-install it... Total Uninstall saves all information in a backup ... so if you mess up with the uninstall or trash the program ..you can use the backup to re-install it again... Hope this explains it. Best...... Fred
