IObit Uninstaller 4 is out, people. While there are a few other good uninstall utilities available for Windows (Revo Uninstaller for one), IObit leads with the most popular solution.
And for good reason too — this feather light tool very efficiently removes programs and software installed on a computer, and then scans for leftover files and registry entries and deletes those as well, leaving your hard disk and Windows installation clean and breezy.
It was back in November that IObit launched the third edition of this highly useful utility, and that version brought along full support for Windows 8.1. Fast forward about one year, and it is time for a very welcome refresh.
The company has just released the fourth stable edition of IObit Uninstaller.
And it comes with a lot of new changes, including support for Windows 8 and 8.1 Metro apps — handy if you have a few of these installed and want to remove them. The default Modern UI apps can be easily uninstalled, and same goes for third-party ones too.
These are listed in a special section in the third tab on the main windows, right next to “Programs” and “Toolbar & Plug-ins”. But only if you are running Windows 8 or above, of course. This panel will not show in Windows XP, Vista or 7.
IObit Uninstaller 4 also automatically monitors programs and detects any leftovers if you had removed them using any other tool, or the default built-in Windows uninstaller.
Free, lightweight and painlessly easy to use. Recommended.
Get it here. You never know when you might need it when a pesky program starts causing errors or leaves files behind after uninstallation.
You just never know.
