KUninstall is a fast, portable uninstaller app for Windows

There are plenty of utilities for uninstalling Windows applications. I'm particularly fond of Absolute Uninstaller, Revo Uninstaller, and CCleaner. Heck, Windows even has a built in uninstaller, but it tends to be slow and has a habit of leaving files and registry settings behind after you uninstall a program.

KUninstall is a fast new uninstaller that has a few nifty features. First, it's portable, which means you can run the uninstaller without first installing it to your hard drive. Just unzip KUninstall to any folder and then click the executable. It will find a list of installed applications that you can sort by name, version, publisher, or installation date. You can use KUninstall to initiate a program's built in uninstaller, but you can also explorer the program folder and scan for leftover items.

As an added bonus, KUninstall has a process finder/killer. Just click the Finder icon and drag it to any running program. KUninstall will tell you which running process is associated with that program and offer you the option to close the window, kill the process, or uninstall the application.

The KUninstall download server seems to be getting hammered at the moment, but the program is also available for download from Softpedia.
