Ashampoo UnInstaller Suite

The question is, why should this be necessary at all? Why do you need a special program? Why can't you just delete an application in the same way you can delete a file? The full answer to this question could fill a book. In a nutshell, however, modern Windows applications are very complicated beasts. They include large numbers of files that are often saved in many different places, not just in the application's own program directory. In addition to this they also have even larger numbers of settings, sometimes hundreds, which they record in Windows' central database, which is known as the Windows Registry.It gets worse:

Many of the program files used by applications are often 'shared' with other applications. These files contain universal functions that many Windows' programs use for common tasks. Even though these files are listed as 'belonging' to an application, if you delete any of them when you remove one application, another application may stop working. The entries in the Windows registry are equally troublesome. Among other things, they often change frequently, because programs write and delete values and settings in the registry while they are working. And they too get written 'all over the place', not just in the application's own registry sections.

Ashampoo UnInstaller Suite works by creating two "snapshots" of your system, one before you install an application and another one directly afterwards. These snapshots record the entire status of your computer system, including all registry entries, the locations, dates, sizes and versions of all files and the contents of all configuration files. When you tell Ashampoo UnInstaller Suite to uninstall the application it loads this log file and uses the information it contains to restore everything on your system to the way it was before you installed the application. New files, directories and registry entries are deleted. Changed registry entries are restored to the values they had before you installed the program
