CCleaner includes an uninstaller.  I have used it for many years and it works very well and is routinely updated.

Hi, talen, sure it does. But in this review only uninstallers that have the feature of cleaning leftover files after uninstallation will be included. Otherwise uninstalling from Windows programs and features would suffice. 

This is just a workspace, not the actual review, so will be updating the actual review later on.
