Superb free uninstaller for programs you just can't remove
IObit Uninstaller 2 is an uninstaller program that helps you uninstall hard-to-uninstall programs from your Windows computer. It also cleans up the leftovers of applications that leave behind things in the registry of your device even after they’ve been uninstalled. Long story short, this tool helps uninstall tricky software programs.
IObit Uninstaller comes in two versions. One of them is free, and the other version is the ‘Pro’ version which is not free. The free version gets the job done, but it isn’t the most robust. The Pro variant completely removes bundled and unwanted programs, making sure your computer has no malicious plugins or adware.
The program is for every individual who cares about the performance and health of his computer and doesn’t want his system to be plagued with junk. This program would also help people whose anti-virus software program doesn’t come with an uninstaller built in.
This uninstaller program provides a couple of options to uninstall: standard and advanced. Standard uninstallation is the regular affair and it has nothing much to write home about. Advanced uninstall lets you finish the uninstallation with the help of a ‘powerful scan’ that gets rid of the registry leftovers.
The ‘forced uninstall’ option lets you state the target program’s file path. This feature comes in extremely handy if a particular program doesn’t show up in the list of installed programs. These are hidden items and could possibly be malicious too.
Besides the different features that render the program a breeze to use, there are quite a few other functions too that make the tool even better. You have ‘search’ functionality, ability to uninstall multiple programs in a batch, and there are multiple filters for installed applications so that you could pin down specific programs for easy removal.
There aren’t multiple configuration options with the program. You could export an application list, and manage previous installs logs. And that’s about it. Moreover, IObit Uninstaller 2 assistance is offered online only.
When you compare IObit Uninstaller 2 with Windows’ built-in uninstaller, there aren’t multiple advancements that the former brings to the table. However, its interface for the task is quite attractive – especially when compared to Windows – and it’s also a lot more effective. In other words, IObit Uninstaller 2 would even consider those programs that Windows’ uninstaller won’t.
The Action Center houses certain additional functionalities such as disk optimization and system performance boosting. However, these need downloading and installing of additional software programs. If you don’t need them, you need not download them as the actual uninstaller program works without them.
Yes, you may use IObit Uninstaller for reviewing and removing any latest Windows updates. However, kindly note such review could lead to your computer being exposed to certain security threats. By the way, IObit Uninstaller also helps remove browser plugins and toolbars.
