[Windows] Cleanly uninstall programs with Simple Uninstaller

simple_uninstaller [1]Often on Windows when you uninstall a program, it isn’t completely uninstalled. True, the program itself has been removed from your computer but chances are, the program has left behind files, folders, and registry entries. Some programs leave more junk behind than others. In some situations, the junk is left behind purposefully, such as for saving your program settings in case of reinstall. More often, however, junk is left over simply due to poor programming — a developer that doesn’t know how or doesn’t want to clean up after their program upon install. That is why clean uninstallers [2] were invented and Simple Uninstaller is one such clean uninstall. Let’s see if it is worth your time.

What Is It and What Does It Do

Main Functionality

Pros

Cons

Conclusion and Download Link

If a program cannot even properly run then I doubt it provides good performance when clean uninstalling. Nonetheless, maybe there is something quirky on my test machine that causes the program to continually crash. Who knows.
