We have all had those moments in the past where we have deleted a program from our windows pc only to find that there are still remnants of folders and registry keys that are still present even after removing the program. Sometimes Windows add and remove programs feature is just not good enough and you need something much more powerful.
This is where Mirekusoft’s Install monitor 2 comes in!
When I was told about this program I was a bit sceptical, my thoughts were “a program that removes other programs, how is this different to windows add and remove feature?” Upon installing the program and testing it out it was quite clear that this is a much more powerful too to that of the the standard add and removes program feature that Microsoft has and one important reason to have this kind of software in your arsenal of tools is for virus removal and malware removal.
Sometime you may think you have removed malware and viruses of your computer when they no longer are listed in windows add and remove programs list, however this may not always be the case as programs usually leave behind files and directories as well as registry keys. These make your computer much more vulnerable.
Mirekusoft Install Monitor will ensure that when you remove a program you remove it for good.
