I've been having some issues with leftovers from some software I'm trying to uninstall and I've been looking into Revo Uninstaller.  I saw it was included in Bleeping Computer's Downloads section and was thinking of giving it a shot, but the download through the author's site seems to be hosted on something with "rackcdn.com"  I tried looking it up online and found some results which made me concerned about downloading it through there.  Can any of the experts here offer any advice on the matter (or Revo Uninstaller itself)?

I have had Revo Uninstaller Pro on both of my computers for years.  It is a very effective uninstaller and personally I highly recommend the product, based on my experience with the product over the years.  My opinion does not imply any endorsement by Bleeping Computer, though you can surmise that if it is offered for download here that it is highly regarded.

 

You can go to their website, here.  I am not sure where you got your download link ... ?

 

I hope this helps.  Have a great day.

 

Regards,

Have you tried there downloads for here:

 

https://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html

 

I have noticed there free version directs to CNET but they do have a portable version on the REVO website.

 

Also there is a "Portable Apps" version below:

Thanks for the recommendation.  If the program was available to download directly from this site (like adwcleaner, etc), I would definitely try it. 

 

When I went to their website, I noticed the link for the free version of Revo Uninstaller leads to Cnet and clicking the link for the free Revo Uninstaller Pro trial brings up a window which notes the download comes from "rackcdn.com."  The same window appeared when I tried using the "download from the author's page" link at the Bleeping Computer downloads section.  My search results for "rackcdn.com" included a lot of claims regarding adware and other computer issues that I would rather avoid (assuming they are true). 

 

I'm hoping to hear from someone who has downloaded the program through there recently and can comment on any potential safety issues (or lack thereof).  I'm also curious about what the "Portable Version" is exactly.  Is it meant for mobile devices?

Commenting on the "Portable Version", it just means it does not have to be installed. It can be downloaded and run on your system, or used on a USB or SD Card used on multiple systems.

As to the mobile devices I noticed they do have a Android version.
