Revo Uninstaller Pro has a very powerful feature called Forced Uninstall. This feature allows you to remove leftovers of programs that are already uninstalled, incomplete installations and uninstall remnants of programs! It does not matter if the program, you want to remove, is not listed in Revo Uninstaller Pro or in Windows Add/Remove Programs Control Panel applet. Forced Uninstall gives power to the user but still keeps the safety and the accuracy of the results. It is very useful when the installation is corrupted and cannot continue further. Forced Uninstall is the best solution when you have to remove partially installed programs, partially uninstalled programs, and programs not listed as installed at all.
Another way to uninstall a program with Revo Uninstaller Pro or few programs at once is to use the Quick Uninstall command. The sequence of actions is similar to the regular Uninstall command of Revo Uninstaller Pro, but when it comes to the step where you have to review and delete the leftovers, the Quick Uninstall operation deletes the leftovers automatically reporting to you the number of deleted leftovers; and in case you have selected more than one program for uninstall, automatically starts the uninstall of the next selected program.

You have a full control over the traced logs.

The Export and Import Log commands let you share logs with anybody using Revo Uninstaller Pro quite easily thus being sure you are doing the ultimate uninstall of the programs you have installed. For example, if you have problems uninstalling Program A or just want to do a better uninstall of Program A and a friend of yours has installed and traced the same program and has a log, he can just export the log and send it to you. You can import it and use it to uninstall the program as just as if you have traced it.
