Ontrack® EasyUninstall™ 2.0 makes PC clean-up effortless

Improved performance, accuracy and support for windows me allows for easy removal of unwanted PC programs and file clutter

MINNEAPOLIS – July 10, 2001 – ONTRACK Data International, Inc. (NASDAQ: ONDI), a provider of data availability software and services, today announces the launch of EasyUninstall™ 2.0, a software program that allows users to safely, easily and accurately remove unwanted programs and files from their PCs.

Ontrack’s EasyUninstall 2.0 raises the bar for uninstall applications by offering improved features and advanced analysis not found in competing software products – making this the most user friendly uninstall program available on the market. The easy to use application enables users to remove programs with a simple right mouse click; clean up Internet files with an easy one-click command; and use back-up, copy, transfer and restore tools for all programs. In addition to these features, EasyUninstall 2.0 has improved faster scanning capabilities and a complete undo option if users decide a program should not be removed. EasyUninstall also contains advanced proprietary tools to concisely monitor new program installations by thoroughly analyzing dependencies, allowing for more accurate and complete removal later on.

“Over time users install more and more applications onto their PCs. Not only do hard drives become cluttered and unmanageable, but applications that are no longer needed can cause system performance and reliability problems,” said Jon Eisele, director, Ontrack PC utility software. “EasyUninstall 2.0 gives users a simple tool to safely monitor and manage their overcrowded PC content without fear of losing important data and program applications.”

EasyUninstall 2.0 works with Windows® 95, 98, Me, NT, and 2000 and sells for an MSRP of $29.95. This new software package, as well as Ontrack’s other software applications, are available online at http://www.ontrack.com/software/.
