Read an in-depth analysis in our professional review for Uninstall Tool
We all know that the application uninstall feature that is included in Windows isn't exactly efficient when it comes to cleaning all the leftovers, so users should try other specialized programs that can tackle this issue.
Uninstall Tool is one of them, as it tries to help you completely remove the installed program, while also providing handy features to clean all the remaining files that could take up precious space on your hard disks.
The program is incredibly easy to use and comes with a very user friendly interface that provides instant access to its main features, namely the uninstaller and the startup manager.
Removing an application can be easily done using the standard function, but in case that doesn't solve the problem and you end up with some unnecessary files, you always have the option to open the so-called 'Force Removal'.
Just like its name says, this utility has been designed to delete an application entirely, scanning the computer not only for files, but also for registry entries that belong to the main program.
One of the things that are worth mentioning is that Uninstall Tool is very efficient and our tests demonstrated that it does a great job every time. Also, it is very friendly with computer resources, even when having to remove large applications.
Uninstall Tool provides information on the size of each program, so that you will know for sure not only how many tools are installed on your PC at a given time, but also the amount of space they take on your hard drive.
All in all, this is one of the best choices you can make when looking for a powerful uninstaller. The strong feature pack is doubled by the ease of use and speed in processing the program removal.
