    Hi @ all.

    I used the revo uninstaller for years but it doesn't suport 64-bit systems so i am searching for an unisnstaller which fully supports 64-bit.
    It should be freeware or at least shareware with a long test period... ;)

    I am running Win7 64-bit.

    Any ideas?


    Thank you so far.

    Best Regards.

    They don't come any better (or more expensive) than "Total Uninstall". It works on 64bit and Win7, it has a 30 days trial.

    i agree, its the best program to monitor an install then uninstall the program, but if ur uninstalling a program that hasnt been monitored by total uninstall when u install it, then REVO is the best in that department, but unfortunetly its not compatible on ur system, so Total Uninstall does seem to be ur best choice :D

    Hey.

    Thanks.

    I tested TotalUninstaller. It seems to be crap. I was pleased to see a monitoring function but it does not work very well. After every deinstallation of a moitored programm the cCleaner find something left.
    With revo i nearly got everything...

    I read about revo working on 64-bit too. What do you think?

    I don't understand how that can happen, it offers very granular control over the sensitivity of the Scanning Profile, Analysis Profile, Compare Profile etc you can even specify individual hive branches and directory paths to include/exclude.

    If i recall, out of the box it's set fairly mild so it's newb friendly and errs on the side of caution. So i guess if you used it like that it might miss some, but with it configured right i've uninstalled thousands of programs and i don't ever recall CCleaner finding anything it missed. If you spent the time setting it up properly, you will probably see far better results.

    That is a very unfair statement about TU. It is an extremely accurate and thorough application. My only criticism in the past has been that it is too thorough. It does however require that you read the help guide thoroughly and understand how to use it. There's also been some good advice about configuring and using TU on this forum.

    Thank you!

    Is it better (different) than cCleaner? I use cCleaner for years now and i am very happy about it. I tried several other Registry Cleaner but often they delete usefull stuff.
    cCleaner never deleted stuff that i need but anyway finds a lot. That seems for me to be perfect.

    @ TU: I installed it, activated the Agent and moitored two installations. Both Installations were not cleaned accurately and i had to clean the leftovery via cCleaner. Revo did it's job better in the past but i doesn't know if that is a 64-bit problem...

    From Revo support regarding 64-bit:

    "As you may know there is no problem to run 32bit application on 64bit Windows, because of the Windows-32-on-Windows-64 (WOW64) compatibility layer. Revo Uninstaller does not list the native 64bit applications installed, but only 32bit, therefore you can't use Revo Uninstaller for all applications on 64bit OSs. So, Revo Uninstaller does not fully support 64bit operating systems but you still can use it on 64bit.

    We continue to improve Revo Uninstaller and 64bit support will be added soon, so stay up to date and you will be pleased! In the next major release will be major improvements."

    Thanks Infinity! :thumb:

    What do you think is meant by
    ? (My english is not so good..)
    Does it mean that Revo will only find 32bit Apps?

    Hey all, i am back.

    Sadly Revo's new version 2.0 is not free any longer! :'(

    And i think they will provide 64-bit support for the Pro Version only which is paid. That ist ~ Snipped as per TOS ~ :blink: http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html


    So now i am searching again for a good uninstaller!

    It should be freeware and it should be able to analyse existing installations to uninstall them thoroughly without the need of monitoring there installation!

    Any ideas?

    PowerTols Lite is only a registry and windows cleaner. Not an uninstall tool.

    For Cleaning i am using cCleaner. :thumb:

    Right, I must be overwhelmed with work lol

    My answer : no good uninstaller at the moment.

    I will use Add/Remove win 7 function when needed ;0

    :) no prob.

    hmpf. yes i think i have to do it like that as well.

    I am ~Snip~ of about revo. They should provide 64-bit support in the free Version! All of the Features could be implemented in the Pro Version. I think that would be OK.

    Just trying to capitalize on the potential... same old story :0

    IMHO, we need to wait a few weeks/ months for decent x64 support.

    peace

    Ok cool.

    I think MyUninstaller will do the normal uninstall routine only, is that right?
    So no registry and file cleaning after the normal uninstall routine.

    Btw. i tried AdvancedUninstaller Pro: it is ********! They say that it is supporting 64-bit but it is not!
    It runs under 64-bit (as any 32-bit app) but won't deinstall 64-bit apps. So it is really not supporting 64-bit. :mad:
