Free apps are a great way to get more out of your computer without spending a dime. Even though paid applications often contain more features, there are a lot of free apps that surpass them in usability. However, free software often comes bundled with other free software, such as unnecessary browser toolbars and programs. Previously, we have covered some very useful applications that allow you to remove unwanted software from your computer, such as SlimComputer and Toolbar Cleaner. Should I Remove It? is another Windows application that performs the same function, but in a different manner. Instead of automatically deleting the software, it analyzes your installed programs and provides you suggestions regarding the ones you can safely remove.
The tool provides you with detailed information about each of your installed applications, giving you a clearer picture of what it really is. When going through the list of installed programs in the default Programs and Features utility from Control Panel, one often comes across software that one has no idea about. You can find more about such apps by Googling them, but you have to find a reliable source that properly explains the software, and it takes some research on your part. Should I Remove It? provides you with a Rating and Removal percentage right within the app. When you launch the application for the first time, it scans all your installed applications, checks them against its server, and provides basic information regarding each one.
You can click any of the listed software to get detailed information about the tool, or uninstall it from your computer. Clicking ‘What is it?’ brings up the details about the selected application in your default browser. The details include a description, program details, Windows versions it runs on, popularity, user rating, install base statistics by countries and PC manufacturers, and a lot more.
The Settings menu accessible from the top-right allows you to schedule the application to run once a month to check the updates of your installed apps and any new apps that you have installed, to help you keep your computer free of unwanted software.
Should I Remove It? works on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.
