Completely erase unwanted programs

When you're cleaning up from making dinner or just tidying up the house, you probably like to make sure to get everything clean. Why would you leave even a bit of a mess when you're already in cleaning mode?

Unfortunately, Windows doesn't share that view on cleaning. When you uninstall programs, it often leaves bits and pieces of junk behind on your computer, such as empty folders, icons and registry entries.

These bits and pieces can build up over time and cause slowdowns and other problems. Fortunately, third-party programs like Revo Uninstaller can step in and help out. Revo Uninstaller cleans up all the crumbs, bits and bytes that other cleaning programs can leave behind.

When you open Revo, a list of all your programs will appear. This should remind you a little bit of Windows' stock Uninstall utility, and it works similarly to an extent.

When you click to uninstall something, Revo will ask how thoroughly you want to remove a program. The recommended setting is fine for basic users.
