Geek Uninstaller: Portable, Lightweight, Fast, Simple




Geek Uninstaller is probably the uninstaller that you need if you’re looking for portability, simplicity, efficiency, and safe uninstallation in one package. It has a simple yet nice and clean interface that allows users to browse through the list conveniently. It has force removal mechanism. It has ability to clean up the mess left behind by some programs after they’re uninstalled.

On its compact interface you can see the name, size and installation date of each program. There is no any other information such as the programs developers but at least you can right-click on any program to visit the developer’s homepage directly or google it to get some more detailed information on an install if you really need to. Below the list there is a full search box to quickly find an installed program but it is so small that probably makes it easily overlooked by some. And at the bottom you can see the total number and size of the whole programs in the list.

A program can be uninstalled either by right-clicking on it and select the “Uninstall” option, or by double-clicking on it, or by highlight it and then press your [Enter] key.

As for the context menu, aside from providing the ability to google any program and to visit the developer’s website, there are also options to remove a program by force when it cannot be uninstalled the usual way, to locate its installation folder and its registry entry.

After the uninstallation is completed, Geek Uninstaller performs a quick scan to find leftovers, and then displays the leftover files and registry entries for users to review and delete.

Note that it doesn’t automatically create a system restore point before uninstalling so you have to do it yourself if you want to.

It also has an additional feature that lets users export the list of the installed programs to a HTML file. This export function can be found within the File menu on the menu bar.
