"Free to uninstall any program."

Winner Best software in 2014 - Uninstallers.

Overview

Wise Program Uninstaller is a free and quite superior uninstaller, if compared to classical Windows uninstall and alternative freeware. When it comes to deleting residue and leftover files, Windows uninstaller is limited and sometimes blind. Wise Program Uninstaller does a pretty good job here, letting your PC run smoothly and fast.

Installation

Requirements: Win 8 / Win 7 / Vista/ XP.

Installation process is simple and does not require advanced skills. Be careful to read the installation wizard thoroughly. By default, the installation comes with a checked box to download more free software. Uncheck it if you wish. Basic options and metrics are displayed with the initial greeting. You can see the number of installed and running programs and the space they occupy at the bottom status bar.

Interface

The interface is pretty clean – you have all you need. There are no distracting or unnecessary buttons, or promotional features. Overall user experience is positive – GUI is user-friendly and quite elegant. Beginners will feel comfortable navigating the menu. When you right-click on an installed program, you can choose to go to the registry editor for this particular item right away.

A small “like” button in the right bottom corner doesn't hurt much, either.

Features

You can choose between safe and forced uninstall. Safe uninstall is the default option that removes files, folders, registry entries relevant to the program you wish to uninstall. Whenever you face a stubborn program that eludes being installed, use forced option. Wise Program Uninstaller also has an option to repair damaged installations. However, reinstalling may prove more efficient.

Main features of Wise Program Uninstaller are as follows: it's a freeware that supports Windows 8. It searches leftovers after uninstall and offers comprehensive removal tools. It repairs damaged programs, like Office, Adobe, etc. Multilingual interface is good news for non-English users. It features comprehensive help documentation available online. WPU automatically checks for available updates. The application offers a program search option.

Pros

Quality-value ratio is definitely top-notch for Wise Program Uninstaller. Freeware with a number of powerful options beats the Windows uninstaller in eliminating obsolete, broken and stubborn programs. You receive a notification when an upgrade is available and more functions are added or improved. You can see the remnant and location list.

Should a conflict occur between the Wise Program Uninstaller and the uninstalled program, it affects Wise Program Uninstaller, not your Windows System, which is a significant advantage, since you can always download this freeware again.

Cons

Wise Program Uninstaller does not create a log file of uninstalled programs, if this is important for you. Other than that we could not identify any negative points.

Alternatives

Revo Uninstaller is free for 32bit only. It uninstalls software removing leftover files and registry entries. IObit Uninstaller is a free tool that uninstalls and removes multiple programs and folders from your computer fast and easily. GeekUninstaller performs deep scanning after uninstalling and removes all leftovers. Free Comodo Programs Manager allows for uninstalling programs or drivers. It repairs installations, disables/enables certain Windows features and check Windows updates.

Conclusion

We definitely rate this light and simple freeware solid 5 stars. This nifty and smart application functions like a tiny digital terminator against unwanted software, eliminating damaged and elusive apps that drive you mad when you try to uninstall them with Windows uninstaller. Anyone who prefers to run a frequent and thorough PC maintenance will find this app perfect.
