Zsoft Uninstaller
« on: October 10, 2007, 07:30:03 PM »
Just released ZSoft Uninstaller - freeware - to version 2.4.1

A very good application to uninstall programs. It allows to do a clean uninstall once that can analyse the instalation  before and after each installation. So with the analysed log it do a full uninstall and leave to get rid of the unnecessary files/registry entries.

ZSoft Uninstaller is also a good add/remove manager: e.g. you can hide windows update to be listed in main windows - and others programs that aren't needed always displayed.

1- You run ZSoft before installing a program. In this way it create 'an image' of your computer (files/registry);
2- You run the program installer. It is best to launch and close the program once before doing the after-install-scan (because many applications add news files/registry entries in the first run);
3- Run ZSoft Uninstaller after installation. It create a changed log that it uses later to do a clean uninstall.
- To uninstall I use firstly the uninstaller'program and after I uninstall with Zsoft analysed'uninstall (it find many things...).
- If the program installer need to reboot your PC (some programs needed to do that), then after rebooting you should to do the ZSoft'analyse.


Details/Download:ZSoft Uninstaller 2.4.1
FREEWARE
O.S.: Vista/XP/2000

It's clearly not an affiliate link -- the other #s are for different programs on the site :)

Welcome to the site majoMO, nice to have another indie coder stop by.  :up:

I'm never sure what happens to the other changes that are made to my pc while an application installed, ie background updates, other registry changes. When you use the procedure above I am always scared that I remove additional information added by programs and services beside the installation program. This was the experience way back when Cleansweep was the major utility in this area and caused numerous problems on the windows 98 pc.

If someone could shed some light on wether this is paranoid or not this would be appreciated. For example any registry monitor will show you the plethora of registry entries being changes just by opening windows explorer.

That said I heard good things about the program.

We can sort the list of available programs by descending order of date so that the most recently installed software appears at the top.  Useful feature.

I have the zsoft uninstaller on my work laptop - very useful to monitor stuff but also to uninstall things when windows is playing up and you cant open the control panel apps, which happened twice to me lately on vista.

I found it when looking for a tool as I didnt want to install software that I own a private license for on my work laptop.

When I look at it it does most of what things like the ashampoo uninstaller does, but freeware. Not as pretty but then who cares?
