Revo Uninstaller

  Tony W. 09:42 30 Dec 2008

I used Revo to uninstall(discovered courtesy of Technotiger) Adobe Photoshop Elements photo editing program and selected the moderate option.

When it finished out of interest I went back and selected the advanced option it took some time to complete but it found an additional 4000 plus entries.

It seemed too many so I cancelled and closed down the program.

Because I want to update my version of Elements I am now wondering if it would be a good idea reinstall my old version.And then uninstall again but this time use the advance removal option.

Also when removing future programs with Revo is the advanced mode safe to use I know it takes longer but that does not bother me.

As always any advice very much appreciated many thanks.

Thanks for your Acknowledgement .... I use Revo for all my un-installing, but I only ever use the default settings. I have never used the Advanced settings and I have never had any problems with it. With many programs, I am of the opinion that it is best to just use the Default settings - Acronis True Image being another example of using anything other than the Defaults can, and often does, create problems.

Dear Technotiger

Thanks for your reply( pleased it was you).As you advise I will stick with the default options when using the Revo program in the future.

Thanks again for your quick response best wishes Tony.W.

Hi.I used it as well and was not impressed with it.[probably doing it wrong]But I removed a couple of programs with it and just to be curious after removing them I went to search and typed in the name of the program that I had just deleted and there was lots of bits and pieces still there that I had to delete manually.Is this normal or just me not deleting them properly in the first place.

Hi, possibly not doing it right -

When using Revo simply highlight the program to be removed and then click on Uninstall. When you are asked if you want to re-start your computer now, DO NOT, let Revo continue. When you are given the option to Select All and to Delete, DO SO. After clicking on Finish, re-start your computer.

IHMO it is not necessary to make any adjustments to the default settings - as I said earlier, doing it this way, has never caused me any problems whatsoever.

.... this might not be interpreted exactly as I intended, so ....

computer now, DO NOT. Let Revo continue .... etc
