Very nice app. Well written and very intuitive. I love these slim, hightly-focused applications that set out to accomplish one task and do it well. Thanks to the author for a very nice relacement for the bare-mimimum native tool.

If you are talking about just invalid uninstall entries, yes, Free Uninstaller not only can remove them, it flags them for you. If you are referring to miscellaneous registry keys/values associated with previously-installed software, then no, Free Uninstaller does not handle that.

Actually, the name "Free Uninstaller" is kind of a misnomer--it's really just a more fully-featured replacement for the Control Panel Add/Remove applet, and not an "uninstaller".

But I see that not knowing what Free Uninstaller could do didn't stop you from rating it. I think you should make your way over to the anti-spyware section, and give out some poor ratings for the programs that don't also defragment your hard drive or play music. Or better yet, give them bad ratings for features they do have.

Smartest Uninstaller Pro does the job for me now and also has a languagepack and will search for registrykeys and folders that are left behind after uninstralling and is getting ride of it. Does Free uninstaller also have all these features?

There are a slew of this type of utility out there. I've tried many of them, and 99.9% of them are crap. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this one not only worked properly, it had a nice feature set and usability features.

For example, the toolbar can be customized to an extent. Also, when an entry is double clicked, a details window opens, that shows all applicable information (including ARP cache info!). When you select an "Uninstall" option, Free Uninstaller prompts you to confirm--which is very nice, since some uninstallers DO NOT prompt you themselves. When you click a registry key, it opens Regedit at that key.

My only gripe is that columns cannot (completely) be hidden. (If you make them 0-width, they will not stay that way after restarting the application.)
