    Microsoft absolutely needs a better uninstaller program, now let us see if it ever happens.
    Absolutely, would spare ones that do not want to use or don't know about third party uninstallers a lot of grief.
    Personally I don't want anything to do with anything from IObit, some of their stuff is almost impossible to get rid of.

    iOrbit is one of those software planting craps in PCs.

    I don't know, I prefer 3rd party solutions to OS problems - they usually come with added benefits, such as IObit's Uninstaller that looks for 'left over fragments' during the uninstall process. Not having all of one's eggs in one basket!

    As for the complaints about IObit, I've never had a problem with either loading crapware or in uninstalling software. It usually requires paying attention during the initial install routine, i.e., declining 'extra' software, an issue that afflicts most freeware these days.

    That's what we are talking about, for MS to make their uninstaller to work same as those applications, getting rid of tails etc.

    Like was stated before all that Windows program uninstaller does is link to the software's uninstall. I use CCleaner periodically that does a good job of removing registry entries that don't tie to anything. Any 3rd party uninstaller will never know the application like the creator.

    Problem IS with the creator of those programs, they don't make it so it gets rid of all the leftovers, by accident or by design. Very few of them uninstall without leaving traces all over the place, files, folders an registry entries. I haven't seen more than few % of programs that got uninstalled on their own without tails. CCleaner plays it too safe to be of any great use. On the other hand, you can use Revo to install programs thru it, it remembers any minute changes to the system and can get rid of every last bit left over. It would be real hit if MS builds something like that into windows since they are full of useless crap anyway. Adding something useful would be nice.

    The problem with Revo is if you run an 64 Bit system (as I and many others do), you have to buy the pro version to have it work. IObit doesn't suffer from that major shortcoming.

    Yeah I forgot about that, I have my Pro for couple of years now, it has been upgraded for free few times since.

    I installed IObit Uninstaller 4.2 yesterday. The only thing extra the installer wanted to add was the Advanced SystemCare to Optimize your PC with 1 click program. I unchecked the box and installed the Uninstall program. I haven't noticed anything else installed so far.
