BitRemover

His host pulled the plug on his site because someone was so very friendly to post it on Usenet. That generated such an amount of traffic that other site owners experienced problems. The host wil reinstate the site if and when Thomas Hoen can guarantee it won't happen again. Which he can't off course.

 

He's working on a solution.

 

Maybe Iobit is willing to buy BitRemover to help Thomas out. :wink:

Hi all,

 

I had written Thomas Hoen, author of BitRemover, asking if there would be an update coming to support other and recent IObit programs. The last version he had released was on April 2010 - Version 1.4.2; and Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7 were the system requirements at the time for that release.

 

In his reply to my my email he stated, "At this moment, BitRemover hasn't been tested at Windows 8. I can not guarantee that it will work, and (because of changed folder locations) it will probably not work as good as on the tested operating systems." He also added that due to his studies he wasn't able to update it anytime soon.

 

So this leads me to wonder whether there have been any changes in any of the recent versions of IObit software, its registry entries, and/or files and folders that BitRemover v.1.4.2 is still being used to remove. And what of said BitRemover's use under Windows 8.

 

Regarding the complete removal of any traces of IObit software (both that which is presently installed and that which 'had been' installed) perhaps the necessary coding can be added to IObit's own Uninstaller so that it will do as well or better than BitRemover ever had. :idea: :wink:

 

regards,

Laurence

Hi LaurenceJ!

 

I believe BitRemover was co-authored?? It is certain that the software development has been abandoned.

This is a most likely a pipe dream... as this would go against previous behaviours.

 

So this leads me to wonder whether there have been any changes in any of the recent versions of IObit software, its registry entries, and/or files and folders that BitRemover v.1.4.2 is still being used to remove. And what of said BitRemover's use under Windows 8.

It is fair and accurate to say that BitRemover is no longer effective in removing all the remnants of modern Iobit softwares. There have been some changes in the Iobit softwares recently that BitRemover won't see... it will still remove some bits as many have not changed.

 

Sincerely,

-Mel

Live long and prosper!

Hi Mel,

 

Can you tell me why it is an unrealistic hope that IObit would develop their Uninstaller so that it can do (for their own software) at least that which (I assume) BitRemover did in its heyday? Surely IObit could if they wanted to, and if they don't want to, then, I wonder why.

 

It is fair and accurate to say that BitRemover is no longer effective in removing all the remnants of modern Iobit softwares. There have been some changes in the Iobit softwares recently that BitRemover won't see... it will still remove some bits as many have not changed.

Then perhaps another cleaner ought now to be recommended, rather than BitRemover, whenever suggesting to users to use a third party tool to completely remove IObit software left-overs (regarding the "Clean Install concept Clean Install").

 

regards,

Laurence

It is not an unrealistic hope Laurence.

 

It is a reflection of the behaviors of most all software providers. Understand that the guidelines were written years ago reflecting things that were relevent then. Most of the knowledge is pertinent still and some is not(bitremover maybe). The fact is that no other volunteers have stepped in to keep it current.

 

It is also to be said that within the threads the solution can be found for a truly clean install... and if you wish I can recommend a way to remove the bits and pieces.

 

You are a knowledgeble member here... and your feedback on this is most appreciated!:grin:
