    I tried it. Two things I noticed right away:

    I used the activate.exe file yet each time I loaded the software I received the notice that it would expire on 19May2009.

    When I loaded the program, it only detected half of the installed programs that Revo Uninstaller detected.

    That being said, I did not test it out by removing programs, and did not play with the options to tweak the software. I simply uninstalled it (with Revo, haha), because Revo seems like a better option. Not a thorough test by any means, but first impression wasn't too positive considering other free alternatives out there.

    Hi Folks,

    Note that on the thread.

    Giveaway of the Day - Cleanse Uninstaller Pro 5 - April 19.2009

    There is a fair amount of discussion, a bit unspecific at times, about whether this program changes any dates (Creation, Modified, Last Access) of files. A number of folks say so about the creation date, but a couple of folks say otherwise, one says that while Revo shows the "creation date" differently, it is not changed in Explorer's properties. Some of the confusion may be because of the multiple dates that are accessible.

    Also there is one unconfirmed report that Cleanse Uninstaller places its own registry entry in with each installed program. If so, it should be checked if Revo makes it easy to delete those entries on uninstall (either of the program which got the entry or of Cleanse Uninstall itself).

    I can only give the most salient concerns here. Since the program as discussed appears to be weaker than the freeware Revo Uninstaller and there is a date-changing concern that would make me want to do an image and/or system restore -- I have not spent any time trying the install myself.

    Shalom,
    Steven Avery
