Deep Clean Technology and installation monitoring

Uninstall routines provided by applications are frequently sloppy with leftover files and Registry entries remaining on the affected machine, with some routines even deliberately preventing complete removal. Not only do leftover files and orphaned Registry entries take up space, but they can also cause system errors slowdowns. Ashampoo UnInstaller 8 addresses this problem with sophisticated search and cleaning algorithms. Through advanced installation monitoring, UnInstaller 8 always keeps an eye on the PC in a resource-saving manner, automatically scans for leftover files even during normal Windows uninstallations and removes all unwanted programs completely down to the last byte. Usually, the beginning and end of an installation are also detected, eliminating the need for manual intervention.

The four phases of perfect uninstalls

Ashampoo UnInstaller 8 adopts a four-pronged approach to completely remove applications down to the last byte. Each installation is carefully monitored to detect and log all system modifications. This way, even hidden or silent installations are revealed. The program also include the default uninstall routine and software profile, if available. Finally, a sophisticated deletion algorithm in tandem with deep cleaning takes care of unlogged installations.

Windows apps under control

Each Windows installation includes various Microsoft applications set as default for various file types without asking. Many of them are unwanted and just take up space. UnInstaller 8 puts users back in control and allows them to completely remove these apps even if they don't show up in Windows' own software management tools.

Faster more secure web browsing

Many browser extensions later turn out to be a security risk, with millions of users bothered by nasty toolbars and spyware disguised as useful tools. Removal can be tricky. Ashampoo UnInstaller 8 detects and removes even hidden extensions for a better, safer browsing experience. This takes the fear out of spam and malicious browser plug-ins.

Snapshots: a sonar for PCs

A myriad of files and Registry modifications are created during each installation. UnInstaller 8's snapshot feature is a powerful tool to visualize the differences between system states, e.g. before and after an installation. It provides a clear picture of system modifications made during installations and can also be an ideal troubleshooting utility should things go wrong. A feature especially users of previous versions will appreciate is the ability to create detailed installation logs from snapshots.

Ease of use for beginners and pros

Features are logically laid out and instantly accessible and complex procedures are broken down into easily comprehensible steps. Uninstalling an application now takes no more than dragging the affected program shortcut onto the UnInstaller icon to trigger the removal procedure.

Aside from the new "Uninstalled" and "Windows Apps" categories, new options have been added to further customize each category. Uninstall procedures have been optimized and visually augmented with new animations and transitions for a smoother user experience Batch uninstalls now feature a tile view to quickly browse through the affected programs making Ashampoo UnInstaller 8 the indispensable software removal solution for beginners and professionals alike.
