Revo Uninstaller and Windows 8

Is anyone using Revo Uninstaller (free) successfully with Windows 8?

I've found with both a Laptop and Desktop that, when it is supposed to be checking the registry after the main uninstall, it just hangs and I have to click the "Cancel" button.

Yes. I have used it when setting up 3 Win8 laptops and found few problems. I seem to remember I had the same problem as you on only one occasion. I had removed several bloatware programs and the trial Antivirus before it occurred. I immediately did a reboot and carried on as normal with no recurrance.

I did use the inbuilt clean up tool immediately after the reboot though.

denso50,

Thanks for that. I've downloaded GeekUninstaller and will give it a try next time I have a program to remove in Windows 8.
