Thanks to Techno360.Surprised [REMOVED]

IMHO, this is a good program to stay away from, anyway. Winutilities free, GigaTweak, Glary Free, there are lots of others which are not only (completely) free but much better (and safer) than JV16.

I'd also like to add that jv16 Powertools is not a very good program if you're running Windows 7, which now apparently accounts for between 10-20% of Windows users (depending on who you believe).

I once had a Vista laptop to which I had installed a copy of jv16 Powertools that I had got from an online promotion, and for a while I was quite happy with it – I thought it was quite Powerful, easy to get my head around, and worked very effectively for what I needed to do.

However, lately I upgraded the laptop to Windows 7 after getting fed up with the crumminess of Vista as a whole. Since then, I've found jv16 to be quite lacking. Though the program runs, and still offers the general maintenance tools, there's a significant portion of the program that simply is not compatible with Windows 7. Thankfully, most of the incompatible tools actually point out that they won't work with Windows 7 (the Registry Compactor, for example, politely states “This feature is not available with Windows 7″; while System Optimizer gives the error “The System Optimizer is only available for users of Windows XP and Windows Vista!”); but there are occasions where a tool simply fails to load, with no message whatsoever.

Maybe a future update will address these concerns, though. Then again, it seems we all agree that this tool is inferior anyway, so what does it matter?
