Jv16 PowerTools is a comprehensive suite that includes all the usual PC maintenance and cleanup tools, and a few less common modules, too.
So of course you get a Registry cleaner, a hard drive cleanup tool and a Duplicate File Finder, along with tools to uninstall unwanted software, control your Startup programs, manage your Windows services, clear your application and browser histories, apply a few Windows tweaks, and more.
Less common modules include the Registry Finder, that makes it easy to locate Registry keys containing the text you define. And a powerful File tool allows you to perform all kinds of functions on the files you specify: encrypt, decrypt, global search and replace, split or join, mass rename, remove on reboot, and more.
There are some thoughtful touches here. Run the Startup Manager, say, and not only will it list your regular Windows startup programs, but it'll also tell you how much RAM they're using right now (assuming they're active), handy as an indicator of the system resources you might be able to save.
Other modules aren't so successful, though: for instance, the File Cleaner found very few files on our test PC, grouped them in a confusing way so it was hard to identify what it had uncovered, and didn't even give us a total figure for the drive space they were occupying.
It's hard to recommend Jv16 PowerTools entirely, then, but the sheer volume of options and features means it may be worth a look. Especially as the trial version runs for 60 days, so there's plenty of time to explore everything on offer here, and find out what the program can do for you.
What's new in 18.104.22.1683 (see changelog for more)?
Here is a complete list of bug fixes and improvements that we did since jv16 PowerTools 2017 – Version 22.214.171.1243 was released.
Fix: The Initial Setup or the Clean and SpeedUp My Computer can display a “Not Responding” error when started.
Fix: The software can display “Internal Error CAFF-3”.
Fix: The software can display an “Access Violation” error when started.
Fix: The software can display error “The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.”
Improvement: Reduced screen flickering while the software is working.
Improvement: The user interface now responds faster and has smoother feel to it.
Improvement: The software automatically creates registry keys to test it has full access to the registry. These keys are automatically deleted by the software but sometimes there can be a long delay with this process. The delay has now been shortened.
jv16 PowerTools is a little variable in quality - some modules are good, others far less useful - but the sheer weight of features means it's still worth a look
