Software uninstallation may seem trivial, but it’s not. Leftover files from uninstalled software clog up your PC and slow it down. Hence, installing a capable software uninstaller is advisable. 

Wise Program Uninstaller was developed by WiseCleaner (Lespeed Technology Ltd), a software company with offices in the U.S. and China. The company sells various system optimization products, and the Wise Program Uninstaller is one of its best-known products. 

Thanks to being entirely free, the Wise Program Uninstaller has won the hearts of many users worldwide and helped increase WiseCleaner’s brand value. We’re reviewing the software uninstaller based on specific criteria, including features, pricing, customer support, etc.

Plans and pricing

Wise Program Uninstaller is free. There’s no payment involved. Just head to WiseCleaner’s official website, and it’s readily available to download. 

The fact that Wise Program Uninstaller is entirely free is a significant advantage over its competitors. It may seem surprising but think of the uninstaller as a goodwill marketing tool for WiseCleaner’s other software products. Most rival software uninstallers have premium versions requiring payment, but WiseCleaner didn’t go that route.

Besides desktop applications, you can uninstall Windows system apps with Wise Program Uninstaller (Image credit: Wise Program Uninstaller)


The software’s core feature is to uninstall any software programs you select on your PC. Once you launch the app, it automatically generates a list of all the programs installed on your PC. You can choose anyone on this list to begin uninstalling. You can uninstall software programs individually or mark them as a group and uninstall them at once.

You have two choices when you select a program you want to uninstall; Safe Uninstall and Force Uninstall. Safe Uninstall uses the program's own uninstaller to remove it, whereas Forced carries out a deep scan to track any associated files with the app and remove them. You’re advised first to select Safe Uninstall and use Forced only as a last resort. Forced eliminates any probability of recovering an uninstalled app.

It’s not only software programs that the Wise Uninstaller lets you remove. You can also remove system components with it. Though, you have to be careful because uninstalling some system components can cause severe flaws in your PC. 

Custom Uninstall

There’s also Custom Uninstall, which lets you eradicate a program that you can’t remove routinely. This feature enables you to select programs directly from their root folder to uninstall them.

The Wise Uninstaller has a rate column where you can see ratings that other app users have given each piece of software. It’s an effective crowdsourcing tool. 

In-App Support

Lastly, the Wise Program Uninstaller includes an in-app support center that’s very helpful. You can message the company’s support team directly from the app to seek solutions to usage problems or make product suggestions. You’ll get a notification when the team responds.

Interface and in use

Wise Program Uninstaller is easy to download, install, and use. It’s free, so it takes just one click to download the setup file from the official website. After that, run the setup file, and installation takes barely a minute. You’re now prepared to use the app.

The user interface is a list of all installed programs on your PC and the ability to select them individually or in batches and uninstall them. There are no confusing menus or features hidden deep within specific menus. The software has just one core function: uninstall apps, so this interface is simple to understand and navigate.

WiseCleaner provides customer support only through email. It also has a detailed online FAQ page for every product. Having only email support is disadvantageous, as many rival software tools offer live chat or telephone support. 

The competition

Common alternatives to Wise Program Uninstaller include Geek Uninstaller and IObit Uninstaller. They offer similar features but cost money, while Wise is entirely free.

Final verdict

Wise Program Uninstaller is a practical, helpful tool to remove unwanted applications from your PC. It’s free and easy to use, making it one of the best of many software uninstallers.
