There comes a point after two or three years of constant usage of a computer when the majority of third party applications on your system start annoying you. Some may have been small utilities that spread themselves over various parts of the system. Some applications might have become broken, or lost a crucial file, leaving the rest of the files to occupy precious space. Some annoying but innocent adware might keep giving you pop ups, the uninstaller to which you can find nowhere. Your Program Files and Documents and Settings folders become such a mess, you don’t know where to start, in order to get back the original clean and orderly system you had a few years ago.
Sounds familiar? The problems you have are some of the most common ones among PC users. The solution is simple: Revo uninstaller. In its simplest form, it acts as an alternative to the Windows Add and Remove programs window. Its advanced features are just awesome. Here are some of the things you can do.

Change Start-up programs:
Though you can add and remove programs from the start up folder in start menu, some annoying start up programs can’t be avoided this way. The Microsoft system configuration utility is the next option, but is not really high on user friendliness. The alternative is the Auto run Manager in Revo Uninstaller.
Found in Tools > Optimization > Auto run manager, this option gives you a complete list of all applications that start by default at start-up. All you need to do is untick the ones you wish to stop.

Erase Complete Histories:
If going to separate browsers to erase your tracks is too much of a bother, all you need to do is go to Tools > Tracks Cleaner > Browsers Cleaner. All installed browsers appear as multiple tabs, from which you can choose options such as clear history, delete cookies etc and click execute. This menu also has options to erase recent documents histories from Microsoft Office applications, in a similar sub-menu. Another sub-menu, labelled Windows Cleaner, has an entire array of options to delete recent file histories from many default windows applications, such as Notepad.

removing unwanted histories from your computer
