Application: Total Uninstall
Description: Total Uninstall helps you monitor any changes made to your system during the installation of a new program. It allows you to perform a complete uninstall without having to rely on the Windows Add/Remove Programs tool.
Total Uninstall creates a snapshot of your system prior to installing a new program. It then takes an additional snapshot after the installation has completed. It compares the two snapshots and displays all changes in a graphical tree view, marking all registry values and/or files that have been added, changed or deleted. Total Uninstall saves these changes and, if you decide to uninstall the program, it will reverse the changes to the previous state.
Note: This is an old, unsupported version. The links in the help file are for information only! It still seems to work quite well though...
Download Total Uninstall Portable 2.35 Development Test 2 [1+1MB download / 2MB installed]
Online Installer: This is an online installer that will download additional files during setup.
2.35 Development Test 2 (2010-01-11):
- Total Uninstall requires the same 'Run as admin' privs as Glary Utilities Portable to use. In Glary Utilities I added the UAC plugin to the launcher but for Total Uninstall I've just set "RequestExecutionLevel" to "admin". There's no difference in the end-user experience between the two. And no need to select 'Run as administrator'.
- As the downloaded "setup.exe" is not extractable by 7-Zip, the installer runs it (installing to the machine), copies the files and then runs the uninstaller (uninstalling from the machine). See below. This also requires admin but, as there is nowhere to add the plugin or set "RequestExecutionLevel admin" in the PA.c Installer, you'll have to right-click and run the Total Uninstall Portable installer as admin.
- Thanks to sl23, horusofoz and Chris Morgan!
2.35 Development Test 1 (2009-11-21): Initial release
When running, Total Uninstall Portable will temporarily appear in MSConfig/Startup. This is intentional. Do not remove!
Another reboot-able portable app...
Admin rights required -
The installer will download the ZIP, extract the setup file, install the program to the machine, copy the relevant files, uninstall from the machine and then clean up afterwards. Just follow the prompts and accept the defaults (no need to run the program/readme after install, just untick the boxes and finish).
If you already have a local install, you can cancel the download and it'll copy the existing files. Your local settings won't be touched.
The setup file is saved in 'Data\installer'. If you're sure you won't need it again, you can delete it and save some space (707KB).
7 Home Premium (admin)
XP Home SP2 (admin) - plus Cubase SX (for the reboot) and a lot of rubbish programs
