Nice to see the same and clear interface and no ribbon :)
Nice nice.

PS
Another uninstaller has the hability to add program to the uninstaller if doesn't appear in the list (eg. Alcohol). Can you add that option? ;)

Keep up the good work.

Hello, Rafei! Thanks, yes, we say no to ribbons :smile:

Do you mean adding manually a program in the list? How: select its executable file (folder) ?

This can be done in future if you can help us imagine the situation when such feature is needed.

What about a feature to allow more or less immediate re-installations?
Or a history log?

A history log file generated listing the details of programs that have just been uninstalled by "Utool3."

Or; perhaps a list of programs that have been uninstalled with some type of link to permit either re-installing it from the original data stored on the computer just prior to un-installation; and/or a link to the program's website where it and its updates might be available?

(Often I uninstall programs prior to updating them so as to get a "clean" install; occasionally I find I prefer the earlier edition and so need to re-install it; as well as often using some type of programs only occasionally; and would rather keep the limit of installed programs as low as possible.)

Your program does such a thorough job of uninstalling programs and is so easy to use I find myself using it all the time. Thanks for that!! :Yahoo!:

Actually we a log feature in the TODO list: remember all installations (with monitor) and uninstallations (with Uninstall Wizard), but actually it's planned for 3.x not 3.0 release.

Your program does such a thorough job of uninstalling programs and is so easy to use I find myself using it all the time. Thanks for that!!

Tkank you!
