In my experience nothing else is as good as Total Uninstall. I tested a number of uninstallers before buying Total Uninstall and it was a lot better than any of the alternatives.
@roger_m, how much better than Comodo Programs Manager? I've seen CPM delete 25,000 keys before and regulary in the hundreds for a large application. I guess I have been thinking of it as enough and not as a perfect app. Like I doubt it tracks program activity after installation to revert...or even after updates 100%, although it seems to catch the updates at least most of the time. I see multiple entries for a program (one with a red x for partially uninstalled)...

I've never compared both. I stopped using CPM, as every now and then it would stop working and would no longer monitor installs, at which point it would need to be reinstalled. It's possible that it was just an issue with running it on Windows 10.

OK thanks. I have seen that before. What I did was copy the data file (C:\fileimage.dat) to a separate location and then delete the file from its normal location. Then I would reboot into a CD/DVD boot environment and replace the file. After rebooting the program would begin to function again. As a routine, I also had gotten into the habit of setting the executables in the CPM program folder to run as admin. Don't know if this is the reason, but I haven't seen a failure with Comodo in I suppose 3 years now. It used to really get to me, until I found a way to restore the functionality...
