I've been using Revo uninstaller (free version) and like it. I'm now looking at buying an uninstaller and have heard good things about Total Uninstaller also.

Does anyone have both of those programs i.e., the paid for versions, and if so, which do you you prefer, or perhaps there are other shareware alternatives that are even better?

I sometimes also use ZSoft but it takes around 3 minutes or more for the pre/post scans, and sometimes if I'm installing a lot of programs to find out which will meet my needs I tend not to use ZSoft but rely on Revo to uninstall the programs I choose not to keep.

Thanks.

I was a fan of the free Revo Uninstaller having tried many others, can't remember which, but I had the opportunity to purchase Revo Uninstaller Pro at a 50% discount. I was absolutely delighted with the it.  It is faster, gives you more options, including an apparent re-install function which I have yet to need.

I posted the link in dotTech  in November, 2011. Guess what?  As of 10 minutes ago the offer still worked. 

The direct link to the offer is:http://www.revouninstallerpro.com/winsecretsoffer.html

They offer a 30 day free trial, so you could try before you buy at 50% off.  (Current discounted price is: $19.62 or €15.11 or £13.02.)

Cool

Thanks Ashraf, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to presented by "jayesstee".

 

Thanks jayesstee. After not seeing the advertisement I finally realized I had to disable AdblockPlus and there it was. Revo currently have an offer of 30% off, but even so you saved me about $7 on that, so thanks very much.

 

Cheers,

I'm a big fan of IObit Advanced Uninstaller. Download from either CNET (http://download.cnet.com/IObit-Uninstaller/3000-2096_4-75161625.html) or Softpedia.com (http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Uninstallers/Advanced-Uninstaller.shtml).

If you have a 64 Bit OS, it takes care of both 32 Bit and 64 Bit programs, browser addons, toolbars, and Windows Updates. It also allows you to export a txt listing of all your installed apps. Its clean and simple, doesn't require it be "on", and has no installation (its a standalone executable, launch it from hard disk or flash drive). All this and its 100% freeware.

for the reviews i cared about, most were informative and helpful like the uninstaller review (i did a quick check and this may be the only review on the entire Web that has real-time scanning as #1, or even mentions comodo). others im not really sure. and still others i knew were looking at the wrong things in that kind of app like the video player review were there was too much focus on memory when it doesn't really matter much. since the quality of reviews are not consistent. im highly doubtful that the gmail backup review is the best pretty much because it's outdated. if that (possibly nonoutdated) program was definitely 1) easiest and 2) simplest, it would likely be mentioned in other (recent) reviews (yes, the uninstaller wasnt, but gmail backup has a lot more reviews on the Web), though i still have to review all the links…
