Advantages: Does a great job at ensuring you get a clean un install.
Disadvantages: If you try to delete too much (in advanced mode) you could make your PC almost useless.
Revo Uninstaller is a great little program you can download and install on your PC for free. Its very similar to add and remove programs, which comes with every windows installation however, it just does things a lot better.
( Before I begin I want to add a definition to enable everyone to understand this review)
Registry - This is the part of your computer you don't usually see. It stores all the information on your PC and how its configured. For example: Delays in shut down times, screen colours, font sizes and pretty much all the information your PC needs. Over time, the registry gradually grows in size and gets cluttered with invalid and unwanted data for example, from uninstalled programs, this is where Revo Uninstaller comes in.
*Revo Uninstaller not only un-installs unwanted programs from your PC easily and efficiently it. It also helps your get rid of any extra unwanted registry files and folders left scattered around.
*For me I always use the safe un-install option as I don't want to risk removing files which may be needed for other programs or processes. However, for more experienced users you can choose advanced mode which enables you to select and delete relevant registry keys to ensure the program is completely removed.
*There is also a very simple to use junk file cleaner which will safely remove unwanted files from your PC that you may not even know are there but they slow your PC down.
*One thing that has come in handy for me is that on my older PC I have had problems using the standard un-installer for certain programs due to broken installations. This was very quickly sorted by Revo as it searched for relevant information from the program I wanted to remove and helped me safely delete it from both the registry and my PC.
To sum this up Revo Uninstaller does a good job and it does it well. For such a small program and no expense paid it is definitely one I recommend.
Summary: Safe for all users, however don't go over the top.
