Exclamation

I thought it had been made clear in other articles, 32 bit application removal programs will NOT remove 64 bit programs. Hopefully, advances that Microsoft have made in this area will render these things a bad memory.

Yes.

From my point of view I was merely interested in how reliable/successful/safe 32 bit Revo would be when used to remove 32 bit apps from within a 64 bit environment.

It seems that I missunderstood what you were trying to test. So, sorry about my previous post.
You could try out Uninstall Manager which is free and (if I understood it correctly) has 64bit support and even comes in portable version:

Thanks, hadn't heard of this one, though it looks very similar to MyUninstaller (NirSoft), which also supports 64 bit apps.

Though I know of NirSoft for quite some time now and am using a few of its utiliies, I hadn't noticed MyUninstaller before this thread.
As a user of it, does it do a thorough uninstall like Revo? I went to NirSoft's site, but I'm still not sure from what I read, mostly because of this (Quote):
"MyUninstaller simply run the uninstall module provided by the software that you want to uninstall."

It simply replaces add/remove with no extra features. Loads faster though.

That's what I was afraid of.
Thanks for the reply.

@26Dolphins

I find MyUninstaller lists all installed apps more comprehensively and giving more info than the built-in windows tool.
IMO it's much better than the XP uninstall tool but offers less advantages over the one in Windows 7.

Hi,
@Sope

I'm using the portable version of Revo Uninstaller Free, so I'm looking around if there're any alternatives to this one, not just a replacement for the built-in windows tool.

Thanks anyway.
