I am so Happy I chose to use Comodo Programs Manager, at first site I did not think it would be useful, because I have been using others like Revo and Smarty Uninstaller, but after having it installed for a month I have used it 3 times already to remove unwanted Software I Installed that it automatically monitored, and it is Fast at removing the clutter installers leave behind, and does an excellent job at monitoring new installations without the need to to manually do a snapshot install every time I want to Install something like the others require.
I definitely recommend this software to Everyone, especially the ones who have a new machine or a have reinstalled windows. This would be the First Software I Installed before all others.
The only thing it lacks for people who have been using their machine for awhile is the ability to remove trash from software Installed before they Installed CPM.
Thanks Comodo Developers for all of your hard work, I greatly Appreciate it!
I want to share your enthusiasm but CPM is a little too “quiet” for me so far, i.e. I can’t exactly tell how good it is or isn’t at monitoring & removing. It will be nice when they add the ability to see what exactly CPM has monitoring wrt an installed program.
When an application is installed using CPM and CPM monitors the install, it records what files are created and what modifications are made to the OS. After the installation is complete, when you click on the monitored app in the CPM Programs listing, you’ll see a “Make Installer” button in the bottom of the info panel on the right hand side of CPM.
Clicking this button will create a self extracting executable that contains all the files, folders and OS modifications that were done during the installation. This EXE can then be run to quickly do what the original install did.
You don’t have to make all the configuration choices - they are all saved in the EXE.
You COULD use them to install on another system.
If installing on other systems, you don’t have to make the same config changes on all of them as it will use the same setrtings as the original install - ideal for LAN installs.
If you use CPM to uninstall a monitored app that was a time limited trial, it removes the normally hidden registry key that prevents a reinstallation, then you use the package to do a quick reinstallation.
Wouldnt be that against the copyright or against the licensing of the author?
Can this be used so instead of having 30 day trial for CIS PRO, we can have it free for a life time doing the procedure you mention? ;D
Thanks for replying, but I don’t have auto-updates in use either. Seems to me you can turn Windows Updates off or on as one sees fit. So I still don’t quite get why one would rely on CPM when WU seems the most accurate arbiter of your system/update status?
