Morning fellow techies Smile

 

I tried to put this question in as a comments section of the 10 free program essentials, but when I clicked on reply, it gave me gibberish so I got scared  Surprised and ran away to here.

 

Sooooo my question and comment is,

I got the program and I love it, however I was under the impression that it was "freeware", and when I checked it said I had to unregisted version and requested a # to register. Am I suppose to get a # from  … ???

 

Did DL the wrong program, I DL Pro 2.1.5.?Confused

I believe Pro is the paid-for version.  Just uninstall it from Windows's default little uninstaller in the control panel and download this one:

http://download.cnet.com/Revo-Uninstaller/3000-2096_4-10687648.html

It's a major version # behind, but I don't think that should be a problem.  Enjoy Revo!

Oh, the site that was :(

Jeanjean (appreciation bows)

Can I assume that I can plug my USB into my sister's machine and it will gather her programs and allow me to get rid of unnecessary programs?

Revo Uninstaller Free is only for 32 bit O/S.

I use it to many machines. But I got a couple with 7-64 bit.

What would you recommend similar for 64 bit?

Hey, Ebony

"Can I assume that I can plug my USB into my sister's machine and it will gather her programs and allow me to get rid of unnecessary programs?"

Um,………….. hopefully the part about 'getting rid of unnecessary programs' would, of course be, um,

with her.….. permission!??! Wink Laugh

Hi Al,

Well that would be the proper, polite and courtesy thing to do  BUT she has the mindset of if it is on there, I want to keep it, 

Nevermind the fact that it came with the computer as a trial program and the date has expired, she is not going to buy it, and she does not know what it is used for, and when I tell her, she says, OH…..

Soooo I guess you are right, I will ask, …..and then I will make the call Laugh

Hey, Ebony

That's funny! Wink

"and then I will make the call Laugh"

Can I also assume that you are the 'big' or older sister?

Not everyone always appreciates our efforts to educate & help them!

So we do our best, & then march on!

Ahhh … tech support for family members, I know the feeling.  I get it from my parents and my in-laws.  I have so far been unable to convince them that clicking on any and every link they get in an email is a bad idea. Frown But then they come crying that their computer has slowed down (even if it has a faster processor and more memory than mine) and they can barely get Word/Excel/etc to load.  And it is inevitably some kind of malware.Yell Or other bloated garbage-ware that they allowed to start every time they booted their computer. Yell 

At least my parents allowed me to installed LogMeIn on their computer so I could fix it remotely.  I would highly recommend it if you need to do tech support on your sister's computer frequently.

@ Ebony

"Hi Palal

That's funny, too!

I have an older bro & sis, & a younger bro, so I get flack from ALL directions! I only started to learn computers about 6 years ago, when I went back to college after a non-paid 'vacation' of a few years. Then, I was a pain-in-the-a*s for always asking questions!

Now, they all want help [after I studied & experimented with computers in addition to school work. ] So, they still see me as a pain-in-the-a*s, but this time, it's because they claim I'm a know-it-all!! [of course, they don't say that until AFTER I've helped them!!]Wink

Your pal

@ebony – Revo Uninstaller Standard program is 100% freeware – so you must have inadvertently downloaded the pro version.  I am very happy with Revo Uninstaller – it deletes program files safely, quickly, and effectively, without any adverse impact on the user's computer.

In addition, I have the pro version of Revo Uninstaller, and this is also working very well for me – I got it at a discount (via email from the developer).  The pro version has some nifty additional features, settings, and options.  If you ever decide to go for the pro version, I highly recommend it.

 Hum… I have learned the hard way when it comes to troubleshoot your relatives computers. Bottom line, take control! ( that was my condition Embarassed )

I give them all limited accounts, they have access to only what they need!

And also with a little bit of training, I can proudly say it's been over 2 months since I've got a repair call.

Nice! Cool

There's a hack where you can make Revo Pro a registered program. I tried that, but when I wanted to load Revo, it toke like 20 seconds just to load up! So it's not good at all.

 

Other than that, when will there be a "Revo Uninstaller Pro Giveaway". I want that to happen… I hope.

@Joji: I don't think there will be a giveaway since Revo is already very popular.

Anyway, can you tell me the hack? I want to try it.
