The upper hand of a portable app
You are not required to go through an installation process, as it is portable. This means that, unlike installers, it is not going to add new items to the Windows registry and hard drive, without your approval, and no leftovers will remain after its removal from the disk.
Most importantly, by moving the program files to a USB flash drive or other similar external storage unit, you can take UninstallAV anywhere with you and run it on the fly, on any PC you come in contact with.
Although the interface you come by is not particularly appealing, it presents a pretty simple build, as all the options available are enclosed in the main window, along with a few boxes and several buttons. Both beginners and highly experienced people can learn how to work with it, without facing any kind of difficulty.
Options to tweak
This utility detects and displays all antiviruses, antispyware products and firewalls installed on your operating system and enables you to uninstall them with just a click of the button, as well as remove their entry from the Windows Security Center.
At the first launch, it is possible to get rid of all the security-related programs from the hard drive, yet you should know it is important to restart the system after each uninstall, to ensure that all the remaining files are deleted.
To sum up, UninstallAV is an efficient piece of software, dedicated to both power and novice users. The CPU and memory usage is low at all times, regardless of the process under way, the response time is good and the our tests did not pick up on any errors or crashes.
