You can find the Programs & Features section in the Control Panel of Windows 7 and Vista using which you can uninstall any installed software from your system. But it lacks in features and sometimes just does not work as you would expect. Instead you can use the free Revo Uninstaller to get rid of unwanted software from your system. Revo Uninstaller is a free Windows application that can help you easily and effortlessly remove programs from your Windows system.
You can download Revo Uninstaller from its website. The download is available as in installer but you can also download the portable edition from the PortableApps site. The download is around 3 megabytes in size. If you downloaded the portable edition, then you can just extract the contents and start running it without having to install anything.
Using Revo Uninstaller is pretty easy. It shows a list of all the installed programs on your system. If you want to uninstall a program, then you can double-click on its icon and the related uninstaller would execute. You can also right-click on the icon of an installed program and select Uninstall from the context menu. This context menu also shows many other options like opening software’s help link, opening its update link, searching Google for it and more.
The Hunter mode in Revo Uninstaller makes your life easier. If you want to remove a program but cannot find it in the uninstall list, then you can use the Hunter mode. The Hunter mode shows a cross-wire on your screen, you have to drag it and drop on a shortcut icon, window or taskbar icon of the program you want to uninstall. Revo Uninstaller would automatically start the related uninstaller for that program.
Revo Uninstaller also includes many other tools like AutoRun Manager (to manage apps automatically starting with Windows), Windows Tools (where you can run the important system tools like Services, System Restore etc. easily), Junk File Cleaner (to remove garbage files from your system), Browser Cleaner (to clean browser history) and MS Office Cleaner (to clean MS Office recent documents history).
Revo Uninstaller is an innovative software uninstall utility that comes packed with many other cleaning tools. It is a complete package for removing unwanted software from your system. The Revo Uninstaller Pro edition (which is not free) also includes some extra features like forced uninstaller and real-time install monitor.
