It uninstalls unwanted programs on your computer, but it does it far better than the uninstaller that comes with your PC, an uninstaller that usually leaves clutter strewn about. Revo sweeps the floor sparkly clean.
One element of Revo, however, presents a dilemma of logic and brings up religious issues. Open Revo’s screen, and there’s a list of all your programs, the stuff it can kill.
But there on the list sits the Revo icon. It can uninstall itself. How is that possible?
The Revo Uninstaller first uninstalls a program using the same program’s own uninstaller. Then Revo goes back and mops up, which is its true beauty. Its thoroughness.
Like a Mafia “cleaner” who arrives after a hit.
Revo’s claim that it can kill itself in the Revo fashion mocks logic. It’s as if it will not only shotgun itself in the head, Hemingway-style, but it will then get a mop bucket and wash up, perhaps calling the coroner and next of kin to boot. Will it pen a posthumous note?
I mentioned religious issues. Some major religions claim God has always existed, but we know that cannot be. Everything has a beginning. So God created herself, clearly. This is merely the flip side of ending oneself, and then sweeping up the pieces after the departure.
How can you create yourself? How can you terminate yourself and then tidy up?
This Revo paradox has been troubling me for years. I want to test it, watch it end its life and then sweep up its own body parts later. I want to witness that impossibility.
But I hesitate because Revo does such swell work killing unwanted programs. I want it alive, not dead due to my morbid curiosity.
I love my Revo, so I live with this eternally disturbing paradox.
