UninstallView description

According to the official site of the developing company, UninstallView is a:

tool for Windows that collects information about all programs installed on your system and displays the details of the installed programs in one table. You can use it to get installed programs information for your local system, for remote computer on your network, and for external hard-drive plugged to your computer. It also allows you to easily uninstall a software on your local computer and remote computer (Including quiet uninstall if the installer supports it).

Regarding its system requirements, the app runs on any version of Windows and it supports both 32-bit and 64-bit systems.

Using the app doesn’t require an installation process or additional DLL files; you just have to run the executable file UninstallView.exe.

After finishing the scanning process, all the information related to your installed program will be displayed in the main menu.

  • Slow with most details
  • Medium with medium details
  • Fast with least details

Uninstalling a software

  • Uninstall Selected Software
