Ease of Use: 
The lowest price: 26.15$
You can buy it at RegNow for that price.
Great interface. Search function. Creating system restore points. Useful set of tools. Registry backup.
Annoying startup process. Can't select what registry files needed to be deleted. Secure Delete tool not good.

Smarty Uninstaller - is this the perfect answer to the question of uninstalling software completely or is it just another uninstaller? I've tried several applications that claimed to be the ultimate uninstaller but most of them does not live up to the hype. The problem is that when you uninstall a simple application most of the uninstallers out there tend not to remove the files that the application logged in the computers registry and over time this will cause your computer to go terribly slow. So, I decided to give Smarty Uninstaller a try.

The 2012 version of this software will cost you around $27.95, however, you can download a free trial-version. When launching the application for the first time you will be asked to make a system restore point, which i very much like as it gives you some safety. There is also the option of creating registry backups.

Every time the application is launched it will scan installed programs and this do get rather annoying. Once you get past the startup process you will be greeted by an intuitive interface with a grid view at the top, just like you see it in Microsoft Office 2010. At the homescreen you can see all the installed applications on your system and at the bottom of the screen you get useful information such as the total number of installed programs, number of possible broken installations, Windows updates and hidden installations.

Smart Uninstall offers great functionality. Upon uninstalling Smarty searches the registry files in order to find related items and registry entries, however, you do not get to select the items you want deleted and the items you don't. Force Uninstall let's you remove the programs that the normal uninstaller failed to but use this option with caution as it does not give you any information on the items it deletes. So be sure to create a registry backup. You can get detailed information on selected software as well as the ability to create groups. There is also a set of useful tools included.


Smart Uninstaller does a great job of removing leftovers in the registry. The interface and search function are great.
