    Bulk Crap Uninstaller


    Anyone using bulk crap uninstaller Bulk Crap Uninstaller - Remove large amounts of unwanted applications ?
    This software seem outstanding and it can even remove windows features, that it can't de done with ccleaner or
    revo uninstaller, most important it is a free full functionally uninstaller. Feedback from users ?

    It's okay but a bit slow and clunky. Also configuration might be an issue. Mostly I just use it to search for a list of installers or uninstall commands rather then use it to uninstall anything. As for leftover scan some items have to be decided by the user. It doesn't get everything.

    Personal choice: Geek or Hibit. Then I have another program that runs in the background all the time that flags up leftovers missed by uninstallers.

    Used to use PC Decrapifier but, similar to BCU above, was always concerned about lack of control. Even with options beforehand, always the risk of missing something that was destined for oblivion.

    Much prefer individual removals (albeit a bit time consuming). Options ..
    - Win 10 apps : PowerShell command line Get-AppxPackage *appname* | Remove-AppxPackage
    - Geek Uninstaller (freeware)
    - RevoUninstaller (freeware)

    What crap does it remove that you can't already remove from Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features?

    Hello @teots,

    Bulk Crap Uninstaller is is one of the Decrapifiers that I have tried in the past. It does a pretty good job if you can get to grips with the setup, but it does require a bit of a learning curve.

    Now days, I prefer to use CMD Prompt or PowerShell Prompt, along with Revo Uninstaller and possibly a few others including REG files.

    IMPORTANT:

    When performing ANYTHING like this, it is always HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you create a System Image FIRST.

    I hope this helps.

    Since you asked:

    Here's the crap that crap Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features didn't remove.

    As already stated I only use BCUnistaller to get a list of uninstall commands rather than actually uninstalling programs with it.

    Uninstall Claws Mail via Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features:

    It missed these:


    Bulk Crap Uninstaller-uninstall-2.png

    Confirmed by::


    Bulk Crap Uninstaller-uninstall-3.png

    Bulk Crap Uninstaller-uninstall-4.png
    And missed these user settings:

    Bulk Crap Uninstaller-uninstall-5.png

    Then what happens if the same program is uninstalled via BCUninstaller?

    Bulk Crap Uninstaller-bulk-crap-uninstaller-4.png

    Bulk Crap Uninstaller-bulk-crap-uninstaller-5.png

    It still misses some stuff:


    Bulk Crap Uninstaller-bulk-crap-uninstaller-6.png

    Bottom line:

    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features is pretty useless at removing leftovers after a program uninstall.

    BCUninstaller does better but still leaves remnants.

    Thanks. I already use Revo Uninstaller Pro which would find all that stuff.

    Well I tried Revo and it did better but still missed a few items. (A minor issue)

    Found these:

    Bulk Crap Uninstaller-revo-uninstaller-2.png

    Missed these:
    Just a temp file and some prefetch.
