Absolute Uninstaller: Don’t Settle For The Default, A Better Solution For Software Removal [Windows]

And even if you know how to uninstall a program with the native Windows tool, it isn’t always the best way.

OK, go try and find the Chrome Memory page….perhaps you know where that is too, but how many steps did you have to go through to find it? If searching Google was one of them, stop counting – that’s too many steps already.
