In addition to uninstalling, you can also use UnInstaller’s comprehensive “Before and After” comparisons to monitor and identify the secret activities of any program – for example hidden files and Registry keys. Just take a snapshot, run the application that you want to monitor and then take another snapshot. UnInstaller then compares the snapshots and shows you all the changes the program has made anywhere on your system.
Ashampoo UnInstaller 4 is actually a complete Windows maintenance package with over a dozen powerful tools. It comes with an advanced hard disk defragmenter, a file wiper, a file undeleter, an Internet cleaner, a Windows Registry cleaner, a Windows system restore point manager, file and folder backup and much more. See further below for a full list.
New and improved in this version
Ashampoo UnInstaller 4 is now better than ever before, with new features, improved functionality, two new utility modules and a new graphical user interface.
Uninstall performance and accuracy have been further improved, particularly for “staged” program installations. This means that programs installed in several logged stages, for example with multiple updates over a period of time, are now removed much more efficiently.
New Undeleter and File Wiper
A powerful undelete tool for recovering accidentally deleted files and a wiper for completely removing all traces of sensitive files from your hard disk have been added to the UnInstaller toolkit in this version.
Improved Hard Disk Defragmenter
The efficient hard disk defragmentation tool has received a major update and now includes boot time defragmentation, automatic “Pro-Active” defragmentation when the hard disk is idle and multiple drive defragmentation with optional automatic computer shutdown when the process is complete.
Improved Internet Cleaner
The Internet Cleaner deletes all traces of Internet surfing sessions from your computer (all browsers normally save records of everything you view). The new version supports all the latest versions of Internet Explorer and Firefox, and now also allows Firefox users to choose which cookies they want to keep or delete.
New graphical user interface
In additional to the functional improvements Ashampoo UnInstaller 4 has been given an attractive new graphical user interface that makes the program easier and more intuitive to use.
In addition to the new and improved features Ashampoo UnInstaller 4 continues to offer all the other tools and features that have made it so popular with novice and experienced users alike.
This small system tray tool identifies almost all program installations automatically, logging the entire installation process so that you can remove the program later with the Ashampoo UnInstaller.
Monitor secret program activities
Just take a “Before” snapshot with UnInstaller, run the application that you want to monitor and then take another snapshot. UnInstaller will then show you all the changes the program has made anywhere on your system, including Registry entries, new files, file changes and other changes.
Get insurance against changing your mind! Reinstaller reinstalls your removed programs along with all your individual settings so that you don’t have to go through the hassle of configuring everything all over again.
Drag & Drop Desktop Uninstaller
Just drag the icon of a logged program onto the desktop icon to remove it from your computer with Ashampoo UnInstaller. Great for getting rid of trial versions quickly.
Find invalid installation entries
Add/Remove Programs in the Windows Control Panel often contains invalid entries for programs no longer on your system. This tool locates and deletes these entries, freeing up resources on your machine.
Manage system restore points
Windows has a system for saving “rollback” backups of your system called “restore points” that allow you to return your system to an earlier state without losing your personal data (text documents, emails, browser history etc). The restore points manager shows you all your restore points. It also enables you to activate and deactivate automatic restore points, create manual restore points and load restore points to return your system to a previous state.
The Windows Registry is the central database where both Windows and most programs save all their (and your) settings. Lots of leftover junk data often accumulates here, particularly when you remove programs without Ashampoo UnInstaller. This tool helps you to identify and get rid of this cruft that is clogging up your system.
Fonts you don’t use can use up a surprising amount of memory and Windows resources. This tool enables you to view all the fonts on your system with detailed information on each font and remove fonts you no longer require.
