IOBit Uninstaller

July 31, 2018

This is one tool I find invaluable in my computer tool chest. IOBit's Uninstaller is both free and an exceptional piece of software. Windows does come with the ability to uninstall software with no problems. Unfortunately, Windows does not remove everything such as registry edits, and bread crumb trails left by the software. IOBit's Uninstaller will handle the task with ease.

The Windows 10-compatible IObit Uninstaller (also available for Windows 8/7/Vista/XP) has a clean interface that makes navigating the application's three main sections—Programs, Toolbars & Plug-Ins, and Action Center—a breeze. It's also quite visually appealing. Sure, a utility's attractiveness doesn't trump functionality, but it's a welcome bonus.

 

IObit Uninstaller lets you queue up multiple programs, but you must confirm the uninstall for each app before the removal process begins, much as you do with Comodo Programs Manager and Revo Uninstaller. That's a small inconvenience, but after that I discovered that IObit removed Geekbench, Steam, and other applications in a shorter time than Windows' built-in uninstaller. IObit also includes Force Uninstall, a feature that's designed to delete applications when they refuse to be removed in a traditional manner—very handy.

 

IObit Uninstaller's full 64-bit Windows compatibility means that your PC's 64-bit apps are thoroughly removed, leaving no junk files behind. IObit Uninstaller's been ahead of the curve in this respect for some time now; Revo Uninstaller only recently implemented full 64-bit compatibility.

 

Toolbars, Plug-Ins, and Community


IObit Uninstaller's ability to kick browser toolbars and plug-ins to the curb is what truly differentiates it from Comodo Programs Manager and Revo Uninstaller. I used IObit Uninstaller to remove an Amazon plug-in for Google Chrome, which is something I couldn't do using Comodo Programs Manager or Revo Uninstaller. In fact, Comodo and Revo didn't recognize the plug-in when I searched on "Amazon" using their respective search boxes. IObit's ability to remove browser toolbars and plug-ins isn't a common one. Of all the uninstallers I've reviewed, only Ashampoo Uninstaller boasts similar capabilities.

 

An Excellent Uninstaller
IObit Uninstaller 6 is easily the best Windows uninstaller utility I've tested. Despite some minor problems, its 64-bit-app compatibility, browser toolbar and plug-in removal, and well-designed interface make it a winner. It doesn't hurt that it's free, either. Ashampoo Uninstaller, Comodo Programs Manager, and Revo Uninstaller are no slouches, but IObit Uninstaller is the PCMag Editors' Choice for Windows uninstaller utilities.
