Software Reviews / Revo Uninstaller Pro - Opinions
« on: March 28, 2016, 02:52:31 pm »
Deleting files via Windows Recycle Bin still leaves physical traces on the hard disk. This is where Revo Uninstaller Pro comes in handy - the program has Evidence Remover which enables you to completely and forever delete anything.

The program has a 30-day trial period, and you can decide whether you like it or not. Other interesting features of the program include:

  • Revo Uninstaller Pro's compatibility with Windows 10 and 64-bit apps;
  • Revo's capability to delete junk files and unwanted registry entries;
  • A bunch of useful features that will appeal to advanced users.

However, the program's interface is not the most progressive one. And its functionalities could have been better if it could remove browser plugins and toolbars.

What's your opinion on Revo Uninstaller Pro? Have a look at its review here:

If you're worried about the current state of cyber security, you should definitely consider installing Secunia PSI, now known as Flexera Software Personal Software Inspector.

The program is a great protection against vulnerabilities and exploits, and the best part is that it's totally free-of-charge. And no, it is not ad-supported which makes it even better :)

Software Reviews / Remo Recover for Android - is it worth paying for?
« on: March 24, 2016, 02:55:25 pm »
Remo Recover for Android is a simple and effective program that restores files lost to corruption, deletion or formatting (of SD card). It is installed on a Windows machine which then has to be connected to the mobile via USB cable.

Because of it's simple and user-friendly interface, the program is very easy to use. It is also designed to recover various files such as photos, videos and documents, and APK files. However, if you want to recover contacts or SMS messages, Remo will not do the work.

Have you used the program? If so, do you like it? You can also recommend other software like Remo - both paid or free. :)
