Geek Uninstaller is a portable and completely free software uninstaller program that's really small in size but still manages to pack in some nice features.

Corrupt software or programs that aren't uninstalling properly can be forcibly removed with Geek Uninstaller, which is more than what the standard uninstall utility in Windows is able to do.

More About Geek Uninstaller

Geek Uninstaller is both portable and supports almost all the features anyone would expect from an uninstaller tool:

  • Can uninstall programs in Windows 10Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, as well as in most Windows Server versions
  • Switch between uninstalling desktop apps and Windows Store apps through the View menu

  • Geek Uninstaller lists each program's name, the date on which they were installed, and how much disk space they're occupying
  • If you right-click any program from the list, you can view it in the Registry Editor, open its installation folder, and search the internet for more information on the program
  • A program entry can be removed from the list of software if it's no longer installed but is still being shown as if it were
  • The total disk space used by all the installed programs is shown at the bottom of the program
  • Geek Uninstaller can forcibly remove a program if the regular uninstaller method doesn't work, which will scan the file system and registry for everything associated with the program and then let you remove them

    My Thoughts on Geek Uninstaller

    Geek Uninstaller is perfect for flash drives because it's a single file that takes up very little space. This means you can carry with you to always have a solid program that can remove even the most stubborn software.

    I really like the export feature because the HTML file that's generated looks very nice. It's formatted in an easy to read layout and includes everything you see in the program - the name, size, install date, and total space used by all the programs. It also shows the computer name and date the file was generated, which is real nice to avoid confusion if you're doing this on multiple computers.

    Something I don't like is that some features like batch uninstalls (selecting multiple programs at once and attempting to remove them) won't work in the free version.

    This means if you try to use it, you'll be prompted to upgrade to the professional version.
