Quick Access to utilities:
Windows has a lot of useful options for optimisation, but with the increasing complexity of new versions, some of them have become quite hard to find. Worry no more, you will find a collection of all the essential windows utilities in Tools > Optimisation > Windows tools. From system restore to shared folders, everything in one place.
Did you know that much of your deleted data can be recovered by a determined person in a laboratory, if they have not been overwritten. This is because data is stored magnetically and at the time of deletion, only the reference to it, in the file allocation table, is deleted. The magnetisation still remains. So if your opponents are determined enough, they can pull out those files you deleted. Worry no more. Evidence remover, found in Tools > Tracks Cleaner > Evidence Remover, is for you. This option overwrites all sectors on the disk from which you have recently deleted data, hence ensuring that the deleted data become unrecoverable. You may also utilise the unrecoverable delete option in the same menu to directly delete file irrevocably.
Till now, you have been taking it easy on those pesky annoying pieces of software. When it gets time to get serious, it’s time for Hunter Mode. This mode is custom designed to get rid of those hard to locate pesky pieces of adware or other programs that plague your computer.
To access this, click on the hunter mode button in the Revo uninstaller main window. The window disappears and a rifle scope view (with crosshairs in it) appears near the top right corner of the screen, true hunting style.
Drag and drop this rifle scope onto any window, and a menu pops up. The menu gives you options to
Uninstall: Remove the programme and all files associated with it.
Stop Auto starting: If the programme automatically starts at start up, it is prevented from doing so next start up onwards.
Kill process: Equivalent to End process, found in task manager, except this time you don’t have to find which process it is.
Kill and delete process: End process and delete the EXE from which it ran.
Open Containing Folder: Opens the folder in which the EXE file from which the process runs is saved. This is especially useful if you have broken applications on your computer that run blank windows, and you have no idea what/where they are.
Properties: Brings up the properties menu of the EXE file, as you would obtain if you right clicked it and clicked properties.
Junk Files cleaner: One of the most powerful and customisable features of Revo Uninstaller, this tool will let you get rid of all those scattered pieces of useless files left around your computer, thanks to many applications developed by incompetent developers, just lying there using up your hard disk space.
To access this tool, go to Tools > Optimization > Junk Files cleaner. After a short delay depending upon the size of your disks, a list of files REVO thinks is junk appears. You may choose to clean this up. The list of files that appear in this can be modified by going to Options > Junk Files cleaner. Here you will find options to the specific file extensions that are considered junk files, and other properties based on which they are selected. You can also add specific folders and file types to an exclude list.
