MyUninstaller is a freeware Windows application that comes to replace the standard “Add/Remove Programs” tool included in the operating system.
Although it’s supposed to do the same thing and launch the programs’ uninstallers, MyUninstaller is very different from the old-fashioned Windows utility because it provides a lot more information on the installed apps.
The main window for example is being used to show entry name, product name, version, company, description, installation date, uninstall string, registry key, installer, root key and system components.
Right clicking on any of the displayed items obviously allows you to uninstall the selected software, but also to change installation, delete the entry, access installation folder properties or generate HTML reports for further analyzing.
One of the good things about MyUninstaller is that it provides a so-called “Advanced Mode” that allows users to uninstall multiple programs at the same time. While this is indeed a very good feature for those who wish to get rid of multiple apps at once, Windows could block the attempt, with computer performance seriously affected when dealing with bigger apps.
Of course, MyUninstaller runs on low resources and can work on any Windows version out there, with administrator privileges obviously required to remove apps on Windows 7 workstations.
All in all, MyUninstaller does what it says with a pretty user-friendly approach. Unfortunately, it misses some important features, including the possibility to remove the leftovers and clean the registry items that could slow down the system if left behind after the software removal per se.
