Ashampoo Uninstaller is a comprehensive application with a wide range of extra tools that will help you keep your system free of all those traces and components left behind by many programs once they have been removed from your system. Its comparison system makes sure that no unwanted setting or file remains on your computer after you've uninstalled a program.

For those of us who need to install and uninstall various applications frequently, it is extremely important to have a reliable tool that would make sure that the registry and the file structure of our system looks exactly the same as it was before installing different applications. Regrettably, the default tools offered by Windows and programs themselves are not always good enough.

This program’s interface is divided into different menus – the first two are dedicated to safe installing and uninstalling, while the remaining ones are nothing but a wide range of extra tools and utilities that are intended to help you keep your system clean and safe. The uninstall process can be performed automatically (when an uninstall file is available and easy to locate) or manually, allowing you to access your registry in order to find all possible components and keys related to the program in question.

Ashampoo Unistaller will not only remove a selected application for good, but will also compare your system’s registry with the one your system had had before you installed the program you now wish to remove. Therefore, to make the most of this uninstaller, you are advised to save your system’s configuration before installing any new software tool. This configuration can be saved as a log file for future reference. This comparison functionality can be used at any time, allowing you to save your current settings, to create an incremental compare, or to compare two previously saved configurations.

Among the long list of extra features available, I will just mention the program's included Internet cleaner, possibility of recovering previously deleted files, or its “Delete files permanently” option. Besides, you can find and destroy invalid links, empty folders, duplicates, or temporary files. You can access your registry at any time without leaving this program, and manage your fonts or your IE add-ons, and perform various backup and restore operations. All in all, Ashampoo Uninstaller is certainly much more than a program for getting rid of unwanted software applications, and it is very much worth a try.
