Have you done any research (Tha Google?) before asking your question here?

Moreover, what are your current objects of interest?

Gets the job done and cleans too.

If you like, i could search for my "Installed products lister" that includes Windows Api calls for uninstallation.
I did not added anything else to it like "check product folder if empty" after uninstallation or anything else related to that topic.

I don't understand very well. I know the uninstaller comes with Ccleaner, but I don't like it.

Adopted. Simple. Direct and personally oriented.

That make the difference in this forum. We all have Father Google, but only a few have personal help.

Thanks a lot !. Best regards.

What I was trying to tell: I programmed an application that list all installed products and registry keys for selected product with an uninstall option.
Since you've found something useful it's obsolete  :P

Best wishes!

Understood.

By the way I had a problem yesterday with borlando engine.
I am not using Delphi but I have a portable version of goldmine and can't open the program yesterday because Borland error 8458.

I supposed that was a windows update or a interacting program.
Finally edit the register and search for the string 'Borland'.
To my surprise there at least four keys about the borland database engine.

I delete all those keys and now goldmine old version is running again.
I don't know what happens...

Yeah I think HiBit Uninstaller is very good, however I need something wich have an "install tracker" the best I've seen is Uninstall Tool by CrystalIdea.
Instead scan by missed uninstalled elements, this (also) track the instalation, log each file, register value added in the system.

Instead of looking for items missing from uninstalling, Uninstall Tool you can also track the installation process, saves a record of the files and other items added during the process. This is more effective than just "guess" what things are missing to delete, but we have also the option make an scan.
So Uninstall Tool is the best because have: Installation tracker + Uninstall scanner.
https://www.crystali...a.com/uninstall-tool

By other side, some time ago I sent an email to HiBit Software, asking if they could add the "Install tracker", and in fact it's a feature they are developing.
So let's hope at some point we get this :)

That feature i also programmed many years ago.... doing a registry snapshot before installation, same for installation folder, installation ended = create new snapshots, compare them and write differences in an own database.
It only worked for WindowsXP and earlier, Vista changed everything about "what i can do and what i can't do" i did not felt yet to update my logic :)

If many people want's, I could reinvent my logic to be WindowsVista+ compatible, to me it was just a fun project :)

I use the Geek uninstaller.  It's dead simple and fast and will scan for leftover files and registry entries.  It is portable.  It doesn't run any services, so maybe it doesn't catch as many things as others, but it's so straghtforward that it's wonderful.  It can remove windows 10 apps, too - even ones you can't uninstall.

I see that CrystalIDEA's Uninstall Tool is based on the code of Geek Uninstaller.

Do you rate it better than Total Uninstall (TUN)?

I just heard about this one:  Mirekusoft Install Monitor.  I haven't tried it.  Appears to work like Total Uninstall, but runs as a service, so installs are constantly monitored rather than needing before- and after- scans.  Comes with a startup monitor.

Are you sure is based on the code of Geek Uninstaller?
According to their websites, CrystalIDEA exists since 2005, GeekUninstaller since 2012.
In fact, according to its history of changes, the Install Tracker was added on November 12, 2011, a year before GeekUninstaller was published.

I didn't know about Total Uninstall, it looks pretty good, it would be good to check the level of tracking that both do, and see which one is better :)

And sorry for my late reply, I'm not very active on the forum.

Go to the Geek Uninstaller link referenced above by BGM, page down to the bottom of the page:

Then look at Geek Uninstaller's About page, which says in part:


Geek Uninstaller Pro

Pro version of GeekUninstaller is called Uninstall Tool and it's developed by CrystalIDEA Software company based on my code.

Throwing another uninstaller into the mix: BCUninstaller - haven't used it, (I use Revo Pro Portable).

Bulk Crap Uninstaller (or BCUninstaller) is a free (as in speech) program uninstaller. It excels at removing large amounts of applications with minimal user input. It can clean up leftovers, detect orphaned applications, run uninstallers according to premade lists, and much more! Even though BCU was made with IT pros in mind, by default it is so straight-forward that anyone can use it.

BTW, Revo Uninstaller Pro is $8.25 on BjD for the next 19 hours.
