Operating systems are prone to bloat from leftover files from program installations, and as we all know, Windows is certainly no exception to this.

While not perfect, an excellent aid to this problem is Revo Uninstaller.  Revo keeps track of installed programs and does a search for related leftover files as well as registry entries and provides the option to remove them if you so wish.


Some additional goodies in the program is management of startup items, shortcuts to maintenance programs such as Disk Defragmenter and Services, and search for junk files on your computer.

Available in many languages, Revo Uninstaller is a simple but very mature utility that is a universally recommended replacement for the standard Add/Remove programs list of Windows.

CCleaner has it's own little-known package consisting of an uninstall/startup manager and registry cleaner that I don't think most people ever notice. These features are on the left menu under Tools and Registry, respectively.

I ran Revo's Junk File Remover... it says I only have 116 junk files while Auslogics says I have 630, what's the deal?

The "Evidence Remover" tool sounds interesting... is it any more useful than running CCleaner with an NSA/Gutmann deletion? I guess it's still good for stuff you already deleted in a less secure manner.

Overall for a beginner it looks like Revo offers a very nice all-in-one package.

CCleaner for the Registry searches for unsused and obsolete entries (such as unused filetypes), which can miss items left over from an installation.  Revo's search is specifically for items from that install.
