Details

ZSoft analyzes an installation and searches for leftovers after uninstalling a program. It also provides tools to find and delete temporary files and empty folders, and find entries from programs that are most likely already uninstalled.

Like many other program uninstallers, you need to tell ZSoft Uninstaller to monitor an installation before you do the install, otherwise the uninstaller doesn’t know what has changed.

ZSoft Uninstaller does this by taking a file and registry snapshot both before and after the installation and then does a comparison to find what has changed.

The before-and-after approach used by the product is not foolproof as other files may change in your system during the install which are unrelated to the installation. If you then uninstall, these changes will also be reversed with possible harmful consequences. It is not likely but possible.

In view of the consequences, I recommend using this kind of uninstaller only when the uninstaller provided with the program fails. There is no point risking problems when you don’t have to.
