Members often enough discuss or mention Revo Uninstaller. Does anyone have comments about their experiences with some alternatives, specifically Uninstall Manager (Ss-Tools, Inc.), and Free Uninstaller v1.1 (CBS Interactive)? These two are supposed to work in Windows XP and 98.

Hi, CafeJose, I found that Glary Soft Absolute Uninstaller, in my opinion is the best there is.
Better than Revo Uninstaller, Absolute Uninstaller, is exactly what it say, according the website:

Completely Uninstall

The Standard Add/Remove Program often can't uninstall applications completely .It often leave files on the hard drive ,associated desktop icons, Start menu entries and keys in the registry. Big registry and large number of unnecessary files make the system slower and slower. Uninstall Manager can clear them in seconds!

With Revo Uninstaller, it doesn't remove everything, therefore one has to go to the registry editor and manually remove anything related to that program.

Not true. After the apps' uninstall program has run, Revouninstaller displays the list of registry items to be deleted (at users choice) followed by a list of folders and files that can be deleted (at users choice).

In another post in a BC forum, a member quoted Perfect Uninstaller as uninstalling an app that Revouninstaller would not remove. I believe that is payware and I have not used it.
