Revo Uninstaller/ Junk file cleaner.

  muddypaws 16:00 08 Feb 2013

I have been using the uninstaller for many years, but have just run the included 'Junk Files Cleaner'.

Never gone further than the uninstall option before, but the scan has come up with 800 mbs of entries which are all ticked.

Has anyone used this option and just 'deleted' the lot as one does with the uninstall list?

I use Eusing reg Cleaner and CCleaner regularly, but there seems to be an awful lot of items in the junk list.

The reason behind the question is that I d/loaded Sandbox a couple of days ago, and used Revo to uninstall on level 5

and unusually

there are a lot of entries remaining.

I used 'Unlocker' to get rid of a few locked ones but still some left that are listed in the

Junk scan.

And see link for a section of it. Junk files

For instance what are the Flight Sim .db files for. Are they needed.

I have a clone Q drive so might be wise to uncheck the 'Q' entries I suppose

Yes you can delete these files safely,bit of info here about .db files. Gizmo.

But I have the Pro version of Revo so I will use the junk cleaner and then delete everything and see if I have any problems. I'll let you know if I have trashed my

Ran it,deleted the lot,no problems.

Can't even count now!! Free version.

Level 4 it is.

I use FSim often. They all seem to be .db files.

I should really have googled them, but thanks for the link.

Thanks for taking the risk on my behalf.

Will create a restore and delete the lot.

Done it.

All normal as far as I can see.

I haven't checked the 'Do not cache thumbnails' in your link.

I'll run 'Junk' again in a few days and see what re-appears.

Apologies I did it again.

Got the two of you mixed up.

Blame it on the three glasses of wine I have just had.

Jock1e , not working for me either and Java uninstalled.

Still not sure about Revo. Uninstall any Microsoft products or security software with it and you can come up against some problems.

I did do a couple of circuits at Gatwick in a VC10 in FS. Landings were a bit bumpy! (:-0 .

Never had any probs with Revo.

Will resolve--until it all goes to pot!
