I like this program because it gets all parts of a program out of the computer.  It even cleans the register. In just a few stepts.  Erdogan
This is certainly a fully featured program.  Overall the installation covers 25+ different applications.  The only question I would have would be, "Is the program as effective at accomplishing the tasks included as features as other programs designed specifically to do so?"  I cannot say from my limited experience with the program, but I decided in the final analysis to uninstall the program.

For sure, the interface of Advanced Uninstaller is clean and easy to understand.  In spite of the fact that there are so many functions represented in the program, they are categorized thoughtfully and in a manner that makes it easy to understand exactly how the feature makes my system better.  This is a BIG thumbs up for this type of software to have such a clean, well constructed interface.  I could easily see how this could lead many to keep the program.  The developers that came up with this interface aren't likely to abandon this title.

I am most impressed in theory with the installation monitor.  I don't know if it works as I did not give it a try, but if so, it's the first program of its kind that I have run across.  The monitor actually keeps a log of the changes made to your system when a program is installed and then gives you the ability to undo the changes with the press of a button.  If it is as effective as the idea is breakthrough, this is a killer feature.

Overall, although I am not going to keep the program installed, I am going to keep the installer...with a little reminder note in the file title about the installation monitor.  I just can't see how this program can measure up to the ease of use I get from having stand alone apps set to run on a schedule.  However, I like the idea of having the installation monitor around, too, just in case I come across a program that I want to install that I think could be dangerous, etc...

I give the program 4 stars, but I could see how some might like it better.  I would like to hear more on the effectiveness of the various features.  That would take a serious comparison study in this case...
Just like to add a word of caution when using the uninstall feature in this program from the "Installed Programs" menu.  I noticed some of the icons in the interface came up with a red x, and I determined that these were missing programs.  I decided to go through the uninstall process for some of them, there were only 4 or 5, and to the credit of the author I was given a choice on what to remove.  However, I chose to remove some things that I thought were harmless, but the removal had the effect of breaking my MS Office installation.  I had no functionality whatsoever.  I tried reinstalling Office and was rebuked and was finally left to perform a system restore.  I went back a couple of days and that restore didn't work, so I tried another and good news for me it worked.  I depend heavily on Office, so that would have been bad news if I weren't able to get it running again.

I think AUP read correctly that the programs I was uninstalling that used the files/keys in question were not present.  Just a suspicion, but my best guess is that I removed a shared key from the registry.  I knew of the programs that the keys were associated with, and I had deleted those programs some time ago, so the shared key idea is all I can come up with to explain the problem.  I was essentially just trying to remove some old vestages of programs.  Office is back and all, but this was a little too close for me...

Just a cautionary note about removing anything based on the red xs in the "Installed Programs" menu...
I would have thought the red Xs might have been a clue FS. :)

Jim, you are correct to say that I made a mistake.  But the AUI interface explicitly identifies WIC (Windows Installer) as an "invalid application" (red xs).  I didn't really want to get into the details in the previous post, but I researched WI before I removed it.  It was my choice to do so, knowing that there might be problems.  There are circumstances when it's worth a bit of a repair to me to find out what will happen if I follow instructions.  For me this was one of those circumstances.

This is a pretty good program, but to have tagged the Windows Installer as an "invalid program" was over the top IMO.  Still, it's all good.  I learned alot about that program and what the files in WI contain...and the repair was seamless.  No lost data, no lost programs.  I would honestly say this was the first fully seamless repair I've had using Windows.  I am taking the role of a normal every day user in saying so, although I know that full backups are the real solution to almost every system crash.

As for would I recommend the program...I would just say it's dangerous that the WI is tagged as an "invalid program".  It comes across that the author is trying to persuade users to remove WI and use his installer instead.  It might be better at removing programs, but there are features in WI that other programs use, and it's necessary to have it on board.

Good program but a little deceptive...and potentially dangerous.  This episode left me a little wary of trying the registy cleaner for sure.  Don't think I will.
I ask your forgiveness if this is not the appropriate website or forum to ask a question. I am not a program creator or reviewer even though I do use mostly all free software on my computer. This does look like a good spot to see what is new and might be of interest to me.

I am a subscriber to Dave's Computer Tips and I believe that I saw Advanced Uninstaller Pro10.6 reviewed there very recently. I put a Short Cut on my Desk to take a look at it later which I did.

I am an enthusiastic user of Revo Uninstaller and it has never once failed me. That leads to what advantage if any I would gain by going to Advanced Uninstaller Pro10.6.

Again. Please forgive me if this is not the website for someone like me to comment.

Would anyone be able to advise me as to how I can change my user name?

Try Comodo Program Manager and you will see is far better than this one,and its installation monitor is fully automatic.You just have to install whatever you want and at the end you'll see a pop-up from CPM.After that,you can uninstall the software completely.Awesome.
Thanks Joe.  I'll give it a go...

marko...this one is now gone Metro with version 11.0
