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?
