Program Uninstaller


Do you use program uninstaller on your computer to uninstall files or do you do it manually? What are your reasons for doing so?
I use the program installer to install or uninstall my programs as it’s faster using it and you can see all the files on there without doing much looking around so you see all the ones on there that you can uninstall if you don’t want it anymore.

Being a bit old school I tend to uninstall non-Windows 10 apps with appwiz.cpl, on my Linux machines uninstalling software can vary from removing the package with apt or yum to simply deleting the files and any init scripts.
