Revo Uninstaller Free 2.0.1 is an update for the free program remover that gets rid of the advertisement panel that VSRevo Group introduced in version 2.0 of the application.
Revo Uninstaller 2.0 was the first update of the popular software uninstaller in three years. It introduced full support for 64-bit applications, a much requested feature as lack of it limited the program's use on PCs running 64-bit versions of the Windows operating system.
The new version improved the tools integrated in the application, changed the user interface, and added new features such as a details pane to it.
Another change introduced in Revo Uninstaller 2.0 was an ad panel that popped up on every third launch of the program.
It advertised Revo Uninstaller Pro, the commercial version of the program. While you could close the panel whenever it popped up, it would appear again on the third launch of the program.
Revo Uninstaller 2.0.1 does away with the ad panel. That's without doubt a good thing as it improves the user experience quite a bit.
While you won't get the ad for Revo Uninstaller Pro pop up in the interface anymore, you may notice that the company has added new promotions to the interface that advertise the pro version.
If you look at the interface of version 2.0.1 of the program, you will notice two locations that advertise the Pro version.
First through an "upgrade to Pro" button in the main icon toolbar at the top, and then as a text link in the status bar that reads "upgrade to Revo Uninstaller Pro".
Both options are less intrusive than the ad panel that the company used in version 2.0 of the application. Additionally, both can be ignored easily.
You may hide the main toolbar if you don't require it at all. Simply right-click on the toolbar and select "main toolbar" to hide it in the interface.
You can bring it back at a later point in time by right-clicking on the status bar and selecting main toolbar again.
The only other changes in Revo Uninstaller Free 2.0.1 are minor in comparison. According to the changelog, language files were updated and minor bugs fixed.
