NEW FEATURE in D7 v7.6.10: Auto Uninstall
NEW FEATURE in D7 v7.6.10: Auto Uninstall (Maintenance page) Inspired by Xander
Sort of a ‘make your own PC Decrapifier’ feature.
Basically click the button and you will be presented with a GUI where you can selectively uninstall currently installed apps of course, or add them to an automated removal list (and of course remove everything found on that list).
The automated removal list will be used when in Auto Mode instead of showing you the GUI, and all apps on that list that are found to be installed will be uninstalled.
When a quiet uninstall option exists, this will of course be used instead of the standard uninstall string. When no quiet uninstall string exists, if the standard uninstall string contains MSIEXEC then the /passive /norestart parameters will be added to the uninstall string, to erase the burden of mouse clicks required to remove the offending app.
This new feature should be great once you build up a good list of junkware to automatically remove such as browser toolbars, registry cleaners, and the like.
The removal list will be stored in your D7Config directory as UninstallApps.txt so it will be copied/transferred/synced with your D7 configuration if you use those options.
We can also easily share our lists!!!
