Bulk Crap Uninstaller (BCUninstaller or BCU) is a free bulk program uninstaller with advanced automation. It excels at removing large amounts of applications with minimal to no user input while requiring next to no technical knowledge.

It can detect most software and games (even portable or not registered), clean up leftovers, force uninstall, automatically uninstall according to premade lists, and much more. Bulk Crap Uninstaller is licensed under Apache 2.0 open source license and can be used in both private and commercial settings for free and with no obligations, as long as no conditions of the license are broken.

In its basic form, BCU is easy to use by most users, but it also has tools useful for power users, system admins, and developers. Some of the most notable features of Bulk Crap Uninstaller:
  • Normal registered applications (same as Programs and Features and many other uninstallers)
  • Hidden/protected registered applications
  • Applications with damaged or missing uninstallers
  • Portable applications (might have to point BCU where to look)
  • Chocolatey packages
  • Oculus games/apps
  • Steam games/apps
  • Windows Features
  • Windows Store apps (Universal Windows Platform apps)
  • Windows Updates
Fast, automatic uninstall
  • Uninstall any number of applications in a single batch
  • Minimal to no user input is required during uninstallation
  • Uninstall multiple items at once to speed up the process (with collision prevention)
  • Console interface can automatically uninstall applications based on conditions with no user input
  • Quietly uninstall many uninstallers that don’t support silent uninstallation
  • Uninstall applications even if they don’t have any uninstallers
  • Uninstall applications by the window, shortcut or directory
  • Can handle crashing and hanging uninstallers
Other features
  • Find and remove leftovers after uninstallation
  • Clean Program Files directories from unused or empty folders
  • Manually uninstall any application, bypassing its uninstaller (Force uninstall)
  • Startup manager
  • Application ratings
  • A huge amount of data about applications is collected and displayed. User can freely browse, filter and export everything
  • Filtering with common presets or based on fully custom rules with Regex support
  • Verification of uninstaller certificates
  • The large amount of configurability
  • Can run user-specified commands before and after uninstalling
  • Can run on .Net 4.0 or newer, or, if not available, on .Net 3.5 with reduced functionality (will work on Windows 7 or newer with no updates installed)
  • Fully portable, settings are saved to a single file
Note: Requires .NET Framework.
