    When you use revo uninstaller does it remove files that are used by other programs? Would like to use it on my grandsons computer to remove a few items that add/remove did not get or remove. Is it a safe remover or does it remove everything regardless? thanks for any response.

    No, this is for general information purposes. The other thread has a response on it.

    Thanks for the information guide. All I want to use it for is to get rid of programs that do not uninstall fully, like I got remants of McAfee on it and I have never used it since I got the computer. Used the McAfee uninstaller(i think) and it did not remove all the components. Just little programs left over bits, nothing on registry as it is a no no. Had old programs on it that did not totally remove so would like to get rid of the remnants. Thanks for the booklet on Revo.

    For an antivirus, always use the special tools specifically designed by antivirus software developers to remove them.

    For McAfee, use the McAfee Consumer Product Removal Tool.

    I haven't used Revo Uninstaller in quite awhile, but I don't believe it'll display and allow you to remove the "debris" of any programs that aren't still in the Add Or Remove programs list.

    There are 4 options for Revo to uninstall. If you choose the 'advanced' option it will also delete registry entries, but you have to be careful which entries in bold to tick otherwise there could be a problem.

    I always back up the registry 1st with Erunt http://www.snapfiles.com/get/erunt.html , just in case.
