AppRemover 188.8.131.52 Editor\'s review Overview Even though security suites are must-have tools for anyone that has a computer connected to the internet, not all of them are very efficient at protecting your data. Whilst it is bad enough that you had your data compromised, installing a new security software utility on your machine can develop further complications that will not let you setup a new antivirus or anti-spyware because the old product did not uninstall properly. In case you are having problems with completely removing your current antivirus utility from your computer, then you should learn more about the AppRemover software. The AppRemover is especially designed to eliminate the frustration and the time you spend on clearing out all traces of the security software and preparing the system for the new one. What is great about it is that it can help you even in circumstances where you cannot uninstall the old antivirus program because you forgot your master password. Installation The AppRemover does not require installation and can successfully run from a USB key just as well. Moreover, the size of the program is rather small, only 3.34 MB, so you will not lose a lot of storage space if you were to keep it on the computer. Overall, this is a standalone software utility that, once launched, will start scanning the system for the installed and supported security programs in your system. The AppRemover is compatible with Windows 2000 and newer versions, and here are its supported security programs: AVG, AntiVir, Norton, McAfee, Panda, Kaspersky, Trend Micro, NOD32, PC Tools, and CA. In addition, you do need to pay attention to the supported products details, as they present different degrees of functionality. Interface The interface of AppRemover is quite intuitive. Once you launch the product you will notice four rounded buttons on the top of the display that indicate what the application is doing at that point. The first step is the detection, when the software will start scanning your system and detect all the security suites installed. The second button, Select Product, is commonly intended for users that have more than one protection software and, as its name indicates, it allows you choose the product that you want to remove. The next buttons indicate the stage of the uninstall process and the summary of the task. Because you might select a software security utility by mistake, the application includes the commands “back” and “next,” that enable easy browsing for editing and reviewing purposes. Moreover, once you select the antivirus or anti-spyware applications, you will be asked to confirm that this is the right product before the actual uninstalling process begins. Lastly, if the AppRemover does not provide full support for the product that you want to remove, when you reach the final step, you can choose to restart the entire process. Pros Taken as a whole, the AppRemover is a very useful free application and one of its most appreciated features is the detection of the security products on your machine. You would be surprised at how many times you see old files of products in the Windows Management Instrumentation that you thought were removed long ago. However, thanks to its capabilities, you will have nothing to worry about in terms of leaving any erroneous WMIs behind. Cons Its main problem, as reported by users, is that it has limited support for security software. However, what seems to bother most of the AppRemover users is the cloud of confusion regarding the WMI-only supported programs. Alternatives An alternative to AppRemover is the Revo Uninstaller software, a tool designed by VS Revo Group. Available in both free and paid versions, the Revo Uninstaller is able to perform the scanning and cleaning of security products with just as much efficiency. However, if you are looking for a professional application that includes features needed by expert users, then Glary Utilities Free (also available in a paid version) is a very nice choice. Conclusion The AppRemover software is a freeware that aims to eliminate the traces of old products that impede you from installing a new security suite. The main problem with this application is that it seems to have limited support. However, if you are trying to eliminate a product present in its support list, you will be very happy with the results. (c) 2005-2011 download3k.com. Review content is monitored.
