Full Answer

Revo Uninstaller is a powerful freeware program that searches a hard drive for all of a program's general files, auto start files and registry entries, removing them entirely. The tool first searches for a selected program's built-in uninstaller and runs it, if available. If Revo cannot locate an application's uninstall feature, it manually removes all the program's files from the registry. Although the program is not as thorough as manually removing registry entries, Revo is entirely adequate for most users.

GeekUninstaller is another free and functional removal tool. The uninstaller allows users to view a program's registry entry, making it useful for more advanced users to understand a program's installation details. GeekUninstaller also allows users to quickly view a program's website from the uninstaller interface, making it easy for users to determine an unfamiliar program's origin and whether it should be uninstalled.

MyUninstaller acts as a replacement for the conventional Windows Add/Remove Program feature. The tool offers more in-depth information on programs, including company, software version and registry details. MyUninstaller also allows users to organize programs by installation date, which makes it easy to remove new software.
