I've been a big fan of Revo Uninstaller for years now, but just upgraded to Windows 7 and saw that it is not supported. What do I do?

Can I still use Revo Uninstaller with Windows 7 64-bit? I saw on the Revo site that this is not necessarily supported, so I don't want to have it messing with my registry without getting some advice first. If not Revo, what is the best way to uninstall in Windows 7?

Have you tried Revo under 64 bit? I use it all the time on 64 bit Windows 7 and it hasn't ever given an error or failed to uninstall anything. The only thing I noticed is that a few things don't show up in Revo's list to uninstall, but they are present in Programs and Features. I'd say give it a try, I've used it at least a couple times a week for the past few months and haven't broken anything. My guess is that they maybe just didn't have a 64 bit machine to test on.

It's not Windows 7 that isn't supported by Revo, it's all 64-bit operating systems. I've used Revo on Windows 7 32-bit without problems, likely due to a very similar code base between it and Vista. Total Uninstall does a pretty good job for 64-bit operating systems, the only thing is that it must be installed prior to other software as it monitors for all system changes during installs to make an accurate and more complete uninstall. It's free for 30 days, but it doesn't cost too much to buy. Your Uninstaller! is also another popular commercial choice. Both tools are great, unfortunately there aren't many good freeware alternatives for 64-bit systems yet to my knowledge.
