What is Max Uninstaller capable of? Is it safe to use?


You may already know from its name that it is a tool designed for removing applications on PC. But what makes it different from other utilities you can get on the Internet? You need a good reason to dig it.

How Max Uninstaller does its job

I shall start with how Windows does its job to uninstall a program for you.

If you just “dump” the program folder into Recycle Bin by right-clicking on it and selecting Delete, the program will not go away as you expect, even after you empty the Recycle Bin. Remember how you usually installed a program? It took steps, so does the removal process.

During the installation, hundreds of files, in most cases, are put respectively on the C: drive and the one you selected via the installer interface. So when you wish to rip the whole program off your system, steps need to be performed in order as well.

You have a couple of ways to access the Control Panel, where there is a list for you to choose which program to uninstall. Then you shall not see this program ever again running in the system tray or anywhere else on your PC. Did every piece of it really go away? Uh, probably not. Those stored in the C: drive may not be deleted this way.

“Where do I find them?” — the Windows Registry Editor. But you should note that wrong deletion could cause seriously bad consequences, and that’s where I shall introduce Max Uninstaller.


Using this tool, you are free from worrying where to start the removal and whether you have done it well. It manages the job all the way from Control Panel to Registry Editor, within minutes, and all you need to do is a few clicks. A time-saving approach to safely remove unwanted programs, isn’t that you are always expecting?

Take a quick look at how to use Max Uninstaller:

Considering some Max Uninstaller users have run into problems of false positive report, I feel like I need to provide solutions and clear the air for it, explaining the things you might be concerned.

What If Max Uninstaller is detected as a threat & got deleted right away?

There are three options:

1. Shut down your antivirus software temporarily until Max Uninstaller finishes its installation. If it still got deleted or disabled somehow after you re-run your antivirus product, try the next.

2. Exclude Max Uninstaller from being scanned by changing some settings of your antivirus product. (If you are using Norton, click here for tutorials.)

3. Report the false positive, solve the problem once and for all. (If you are using Norton, click here for tutorials.)
For users of other antivirus products, try to find the way on their official site. Once the report is sent, their customer service will soon get back to you. Max Uninstaller’s support team is also engaged in correcting the false positive. With your help, the process can be greatly accelerated.
