    about revo uninstaller


    so I've had it for awhile ,the free version, but sometimes I notice when I want to uninstall something it doesn't show in revo.
    searched it now and apparently revo free only recognizes 32 bit programs not 64 bit ? is this still true ,cause the searches I got was from like 2019.
    apparently there's another uninstaller that also does 64 bit , free . "IObit" uninstaller...
    anyone have any experience with it, is it any good ?

    Not noticed those issues myself, but then I only occasionally use Revo (v4 PRo, not the latest build).

    I find Geek Uninstaller (free version) faster to populate and use that routinely if uninstalling sthg.

    does Geek also uninstall EVERYTHING ,like leftover files . registry entries ect.?

    And thank you for your reply...

    I wouldn't be comparing it with Revo otherwise. And Google can help with questions like that...

    I use REVO (free)... it shows 64 bit programs. For example...

    now that you mention it , i went back and checked mine and it shows quite a bit of 64bit software...
    so now why some programs doesn't show there when you want to uninstall it ?

    Revo Portable (that I run) also fails to populate many of the Microsoft Store Apps (Like Solitaire Collection, Ultimate Word Games and a few more -- not that I want to get rid of them). So, Revo definitely has trouble scanning through the entire installation suite. It's possible something's getting in the way.

    Very strange.

    I have used Revo Uninstaller - Portable v2.3.5 for MANY years and do NOT have a problem. I must admit though, I do now tend to use Geek Uninstaller - Portable.

    I do NOT use Microsoft Store Apps as I have most things that I use as Portables in a specified root folder.
