Hmmm, looks like we're in the "feast" phase of HiBit updates, after a long "famine" of nothing. Groovy. Latest version is 3.0.20 and is available via the UI updater.

HiBit Uninstaller 3.0.20 (2022-12-10)

Improved "Junk Files Cleaner" performance.
Improved leftovers search algorithm.
Fixed all reported bugs.

After updating to the latest version - my HiBit context menu disappeared. I have always installed various programs using HiBit. Now they don't see it in the context menu....

@Zero Knowledge HiBit Uninstaller does better than Revo? removes all traces of the program and regedit? how does it compare with Revo Uninstaller? Thanks!
Same experience as Digimor Crusher. I haven't used Revo in a very long time, many years, so my opinion is invalid on Revo. But HiBit is much better than Geek Uninstaller. Geek found 8000 entries :mad: to remove for Office 2016 :ROFLMAO:, HiBit found a lot more leftovers :cool:. I'm sure someone who uses Revo can chime in with their experience though. The simple reason I use HiBit is because it's free, Revo is not free. Simple.

The reason I use HiBit is IMHO better than Revo Pro which I think I still have a year left on a licence & had unsortable issues - HiBit is updated often something that Revo do only rarely & has had few changes - I would buy HiBit if necessary or donate.

I stopped using Revo back when HiBit was released. Back then it did a better job cleaning up than Revo did in my tests, and that was compared with the registered version. I have no idea if this still holds as both products have been updated many times.

Never used Revo, all I know is that Hibit works flawlessly.
Thank you!(y)

Thank you very much! I appreciate your feedback! Always nice to hear from other people who have used Revo Unistaller ;)

HiBit Uninstaller is one of the few programs I would recommend to any user. Really good piece of software.
When I was cleaning a friend's computer with advanced scanning, I removed a lot of junk software, then after rebooting Windows could not start. As I understand it, HiBit Uninstaller doesn't have smart enough protection against damaging system files in the process, so you need to read what it is removing - it's no longer a case when you can advise software to anyone. I also read about a similar story on another forum, now I've seen it in person.

It's happened to myself too. But it's important to note that with any uninstaller like this, you should never let them delete anything without first manually reviewing what they want to delete.
