This excellent product from Innovative Solutions is now available to everyone as freeware. Advanced Uninstaller Pro not only provides sophisticated uninstall options but also includes many useful maintenance and management tools. This is the latest full version (10.6) including all features and with absolutely no limitations.
Thanks to its extremely intuitive interface, Advanced Uninstaller Pro is one of the easiest and most user friendly programs to work with. Main categories are listed down the left hand side and clicking on each one displays relevant sub-menus across the main window. Mouse over a sub-menu item and a brief description appears in the gray ‘tooltips’ display underneath.
Advanced Uninstaller Pro’s primary function is, of course, effectively uninstalling applications and it achieves this via two optional methods:
- 1. Is your traditional uninstall where the main program is uninstalled and the software then automatically and intelligently scans for leftover entries/items – very much in the same manner as Revo Uninstaller.
- 2. Is via an Installation Monitor tool which records all changes made during installation and creates a log of all information relevant to the setup – (this method does involve an element of risk, more on that later).
But wait, there’s more!! As you navigate through the left hand menu items and expand each category you will come across lots of useful tools to assist with general maintenance and management. You can see from the above screenshot what goodies “General Tools” presents, here are the other categories expanded to show available tools:
- Internet Browser Tools: Supports options for Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome
- Reports: Generates reports in HTML and Text formats.
Now, back to the matter of monitoring installations: You must bear in mind that the monitoring tool cannot distinguish between the current installation process and any changes which might be initiated by other running applications/software. So, when running the Installation Monitor tool it is imperative that all other applications must be stopped. Innovative Solutions has issued a cautionary guide HERE.
A full guide for the Installation Monitor tool, including links to operational instructions is available HERE.
