Ashampoo Uninstaller is a powerful program which can fully remove stubborn applications from your system. And despite its name, that's not all - it also has a very full set of PC maintenance tools.

Select an installed program and Ashampoo Uninstaller goes to work, locating and deleting any associated files and Registry keys.

There are free tools which do the same, but Ashampoo also has the ability to monitor programs as they're being installed. This enables it to detect all the changes made, and ensures far more accurate removals later.

You also get the ability to create and compare snapshots of your system. These can't be used for uninstalling, but do have other uses, such as showing the changes made by an application whenever if runs.

Most of the competition don't even have this much functionality, but Ashampoo Uninstaller keeps going with more PC optimization tools than many suites. There are disk and Registry cleaners, an internet history wiper, a defrag tool, individual startup program/ Windows service/ font/ system restore point managers, an undelete tool, a secure file wiper, duplicate file/ invalid shortcut finders, and more.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, most of these tools can't compete with the best-of-breed freeware. The undelete module displays lost files, for instance, but can't preview them. Still, they're capable enough, and an easy way to get a complete PC maintenance library all at once.

Verdict

Much more than just an uninstallation utility, Ashampoo Uninstaller includes numerous tools to optimize the performance of your computer.
