Remove Your Data Safely
Few things are more aggravating than wanting to get rid of a piece of software that simply won’t go. The Add/Remove Programs tool doesn’t always work properly because it relies on other files in the file system to tell it what was done and what needs to be undone. When these files are removed, or become damaged, the Add/Remove Programs tool is lost.
Perfect Uninstaller doesn’t rely exclusively on log files to determine which files and program components are related and should be removed when a particular application is removed. Perfect Uninstaller goes about its work quickly and quietly. Before it makes any changes, Perfect Uninstaller backs up the system registry, so no important registry states are lost.
Perfect Uninstaller works hard to find all program components and remove them. You won’t find any forgotten files or program fragments, and you won’t get those annoying error messages that can crop up when you’ve incorrectly removed a program, or when a registry entry gets left behind.
Perfect Uninstaller doesn’t try to decide whether a program should be saved or removed. Simply install the software and locate the target in the easy-to-use interface. When your target application has been identified, click OK and off you go.
Perfect Uninstaller sees everything that’s on your hard disk. You won’t find any files that are “greyed out” or otherwise unaccessible. If it’s on your hard disk, Perfect Uninstaller can get to it and get rid of it.
This is a great way to ensure that malware programs like adware and toolbars get removed. Perfect Uninstaller works until the program is gone. If for some reason, Perfect Uninstaller doesn’t get everything on the first pass, Perfect Uninstaller has a Force Uninstall option, which provides brutal removal of the files you don’t want. No questions, no hesitation, just removal. Ultimately, that’s what you want, right?
Don’t put up with old software that you no longer want, and don’t settle for an Add/Remove Programs tool that doesn’t get everything every time. If you have old software hanging around on your computer and you want it gone, use Perfect Uninstaller to clean up your disk.
