Comodo Programs Manager – Smart Application Uninstaller for Windows

Way back in 2008, I had reviewed five excellent alternatives to the Windows “Add or Remove Programs” applet. I ended up being particularly impressed with Revo. Last month, another new application manager – Comodo Programs Manager, caught my eye. You might not agree with all of Comodo’s business policies, but it’s hard to deny that most Comodo products are generally of very high quality. I took their latest application for a spin to find out if it lives up to Comodo’s reputation.

Comodo’s biggest strength is its ability to detect and analyse application installations, and completely roll back all changes made by an application. Quite obviously, this feature works only with applications installed after the Comodo Programs Manager.

Comodo also goes above and beyond what most uninstallers offer. Some of the other major features include ability to uninstall Windows updates, uninstall drivers and services, and even disable Windows features. I found the last feature to be particularly useful. Most users don’t require tablet pc components (handwriting recognition etc.) or windows gadget platform (for displaying Windows gadgets). However, these services are enabled by default on all systems. Comodo provides a quick and safe way to disable these services, and get a possible performance boost.

Comodo Programs Manager is an impressive application with some really compelling features. If you don’t like the idea of an active monitor running in the background, then Revo is still your best bet. Otherwise, Comodo Programs Manager is definitely worth a try. Other than a few crashes, which will hopefully be fixed in future releases, I didn’t find a lot to complain about in Comodo’s newest offering.

    Re-affirming what you mentioned about their business practices: I dislike their policies. Yet, I do use their excellent free firewall.

    Yes, their products are usually great, but I think I will give this one a miss, as I dont think it is really system critical.

    Seems like the Comodo Program Manager is something worth getting, I haven’t cleaned up my computer in such a long time and this just might be the ultimate solution to really help me clean out some programs.

    Till then,

    There are different uninstallers for windows available in the market. We should clean our computer once a while because many hidden programs make it slow.

    That is really cool. I have always known that when you use the basic uninstall on your computer that it doesn’t always get everything, and things can be hidden and undetected and just cr@p out your pc.
