There are two good uninstaller freeware that I used; Absolute Uninstaller and Revo Uninstaller. For a fast uninstaller, I would recommend Absolute Uninstaller and For a slower but more accurate uninstaller, I would recommend Revo Uninstaller.

Using Revo Uninstaller, you need to open the uninstaller first before installing any application. It will scan directory & registry keys before and after installation; based on those comparison value revo uninstaller will used them for uninstalling the software in the future.

The disadvantage using above method for uninstalling is that user are required not to do any other activity while installing an application (ie: browing or any other activity that write new entry on files, directory, or registry). Because by doing it, revo uninstaller will pickup those as changes make by the installation and remove it when you uninstall the software that you monitor the installation using revo.

I used this type of uninstaller for trying out an application so that I can make sure that I can do clean uninstallation.
