    Uninstall third-party software

    I am puttering about with third-party software in Windows 10 and have a load of it I want to uninstall. Should I round up the usual suspects among third-party uninstallers, or does Windows 10 have a superior built-in alternative?

    If the program has an uninstaller you can use the start menu to uninstall. Just right click the program and select uninstall. I would not use any third party uninstaller unless on its home site it says it works with Windows 10.

    RevoUninstaller should be harmless, wouldn't you agree, Joe?

    As long as you're not using the free version with 64 bit programs......

    I'd not consider any third party product, that has the potential to mess with important parts of a system, to be safe until the vendor says it works well with Win10.
