A Better Way to Uninstall - ZSoft Uninstaller

Windows Add/Remove Programs is fine, as far as it goes. Problem is, it doesn't go far enough. It often leaves traces of uninstalled programs in various places on your hard drive, meaning you'll accumulate a lot of junk over time.

This freeware utility does a better job of completely eliminating all traces of the software you want to uninstall. But it does even more:
  • Analyze an installation so it can be completely uninstalled (also supports reboots of the computer as the process is split into two: Before and after the installation)
  • Find and delete temporary files
  • Delete entries from programs that are no longer installed
  • Hide Windows Updates
  • Hide entries from the list that you are never going to uninstall (drivers etc.) making the list smaller and therefore easier to manage.
  • Show more information than available through add/remove
  • Automatically find entries from programs that are most likely already uninstalled
  • Automatically find entries that are considered "crap-ware"
  • (Of course) search the list of installed software
