    On the Kaspersky Lab Forums, they recommend to use jv16 PowerTools 2011 to clean your system after you have uninstalled an Antivirus and want to install Kaspersky's products.
    Since this advice is coming from a reputed company, do you think that jv16 PowerTools 2011 is actually good, doesn't harm the system and worth the 30 bucks?

    Thanks

    Software Industry Report is not a reputable source; it's been known to falsely promote useless shareware. I would avoid jv16 PowerTools 2011 and use Revo Uninstaller + CCleaner instead.

    Thanks for the great suggestion guys.


    What happens in this case....

    I format my computer, install the Revo Uninstaller, I know that it takes a snapshot of the registry / hard disk state before installing a program......so let's say I install programs....

    MS Office ....snapshot taken
    Kaspersky Internet Security.....snapshot taken
    Java 32 bit and 64 bit....snapshot taken....
    Firefox....snapshot taken...
    etc....snapshot...
    etc...snapshot

    now... if I use Revo unninstaller to uninstall Kaspersky Internet Security (let's say there was a new version) wouldn't that restore the registry to the point before I have installed Kaspersky Internet security? so wouldn't that affect the programs that I installed AFTER Kaspersky since an earlier registry was restored? Someone please explain to me how it does the magic as sometimes I think it doesn't makes sense but please correct me if I'm wrong

    PS: I just checked Revo's site and it is quite expensive I see, is there a good free alternative or is it worth teh cash?

    Well... you could've stuck with the free version of Revo Uninstaller; the only downside really is that it doesn't support 64-bit programs.

    I couldn't have then, I have a 64 bit Windows 7 and only use 64 bit programs

    Thanks for the recommendation bro. I was looking for something to buy as I love buying stuff :eek: but was out of ideas. I wanted a system utility that was useful and this seems to be it...

    would you please answer my question above about how it works with regards to the order of installation programs when you uninstall an earlier program?

    Does it just remove the traces of that program and not actually restore the entire registration to the point before which would obviously break the registry entries of the programs that were installed after...?

    Sad to say, there are still a lot of 32 bit programs. Take a look in Windows Explorer. You'll find a 'Program Files' and a 'Program Files (x86)' directory. Everything in the x86 folder is 32 bit.

    Yeah I know, and what about these 64 bit programs:

    • All Notebook Drivers (64-Bit) :rolleyes:
    • Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus (64-Bit) :rolleyes:
      [*]Adobe Photoshop CS5.1 (64-Bit) :rolleyes:
      [*]Adobe Illustrator CS5.1 (64-Bit) :rolleyes:
      [*]SUPERAntiSpyware Pro v5.0.1144 (64-Bit) :rolleyes:
      [*]PotPlayer v1.5.31934 (64-Bit) :rolleyes:
      [*]WinRAR 4.10 (64-Bit) :rolleyes:

    How can I have my uninstaller work with the above? :rolleyes:

    Kaspersky666, I have only used Revo a few times (free version). I chose java from the list of many installed programs, and it only removed all Java entries (in registry and program folder) it did not touch any other programs.
    I have never used the snapshot feature...
