We’ve already covered famous Uninstaller “Revo Uninstaller” in earlier posts. dUninstaller brand new entry in the Uninstallers category with unique features like batch, remote and automated uninstall.
dUninstaller is a portable tool, just download and run the program. dUninstaller reads the section of the registry where installed applications are registered with Windows. Within these registry entries is an “uninstall string” value that tells Windows (via Control Panel) how to uninstall the application. Batch uninstallation is a very useful feature, just simply mark the item and hit “Uninstall now” tab.

- Add any partial search term to your definitions to uninstall matching items, e.g. “toolbar” will uninstall EVERYTHING with “toolbar” in the name.
- Run dUninstaller.exe /auto from a command prompt or script for automated/silent removal of items in your definitions, excluding any items matching your whitelist.
