    Because of the issue of Revo and 64 bit programs, I switched from Revo to Geek Uninstaller (free). It handles both 32 and 64 bit programs and seems to be as effective as Revo.

    I used Reg Organizer a long time before. It is shareware or commercial, I can't remember, but also is very effective, cleaning both the registry and disk space from the removed software.

    Am I correct in connecting these two? If so, be warned!

    A little belated with a reply to this but I've been using IObit Uninstaller for a while now and have never experienced any pop-ups, although I have its Updater disabled in msconfig - whether having this enabled is the cause of the pop-ups, I don't know.

    However, SuperAntiSpyware lists IObit Uninstaller and its Unlocker program as PuPs so if you reinstall IObit and SAS, you should be able to use SAS to get rid of whatever is causing the pop-up and then disable its Updater, but I would opt for using AdwCleaner to get rid of anything like that and AdwCleaner doesn't list IObit as a PuP.

    It really is a good Uninstaller.
