Uninstalling software can be a nuisance if you’re relying on the Windows 10 ‘Add or remove programs’ feature or a program’s in-built uninstaller. Sure they’ll do the job, but you’re only able to uninstall one program at a time and the residual files, empty directories and old entries in the Windows Registry, leave a mess behind. These remnants might not take up much space by themselves, but over time that clutter accumulates and it can cause errors if you want to install a new version of the same software.
Ashampoo Uninstaller 8 is a software cleanup application that features several prominent upgrades. Most noticeable of these is a new overview screen, which now contains fewer statistics, letting you focus on the numbers that matter (say, for instance, the total number of applications and plugins installed on your PC). It’s also enhanced the ability to automatically track changes to your PC so they can be easily reversed at a later date. Alternatively you can use this feature to create manual system images to return to particular point or count the size and number of additional applications you’ve installed since that point.
When you uninstall an application, the option to automatically perform a deep scan for residual files is selected automatically. After the software has been uninstalled, Ashampoo Uninstaller 8 will tell you how many files and registry entries are left over, and offer to delete them.You can also choose to have the files ‘wiped’ (overwritten with random data so they’re impossible to recover), though this takes a little longer.
If your hard drive is getting full, a quick dip into Ashampoo Uninstaller 8 can help you see if there are any applications you could remove. Installed programs are split into categories, including recent installations, logged apps, large programs, and suspicious or poorly ranked software.
Ashampoo Uninstaller 8 is a superb software uninstaller, and will be a real boon for anyone who enjoys trying new programs and is tired of spending hours cleaning up afterwards.
