Fix: Directory Finder's Options tab incorrectly contains data from Registry Finder's Options tab.
Fix: Software Uninstaller cannot correctly detect certain popular software titles, such as Spybot Search & Destroy.
Fix: Software Uninstaller doesn't list software in the case multiple software share the same main executable with different command line parameters, for example Google Docs, Google Sheets etc.
Fix: The Mass File Renamer could add "(2)" at the end of filenames even if files with the same name did not exist.
Fix: Registry Information can show wrong numbers in some systems due to integer overflow issue.

Hi Geronimo,

Please be so kind and send to us via support ticket the contents of your jv16 PowerTools - Backups folder.
This folder contains possible crash reports of the product, usage logs, and other data which is very valuable for us to try to find out what could cause this problem. To send the contents of the Backups folder, please go to the installation directory of jv16 PowerTools - by default located at: C:\Program Files (x86)\jv16 PowerTools\ - and right click the Backups folder, choose to compress it as Zip file and after that, attach the Zip file to this ticket as an attachment.
Please notice that the Backups data contains information about your computer. It should not contain any privacy-threatening information but if you are in doubt, you can go through the data before sending it. Rest assured, we will treat the data confidential and will only use it to try to fix this issue.
Thank you for reporting this problem and I am looking forward to receiving the above data so our developers can look into this issue and try to fix it.

Went back to previous version 1774.
  • - New version 1811 gave errors several times when starting up the program also after changing language (have sent a bug report)
    - New version 1811 is noticeably slower than version 1774. Clean and SpeedUp my computer took only 2 and a half minutes to finish with previous version, while version 1811 did not finish after 5 minuters and I had to cancel it.

Unfortunately, I immediately repaired and re-installed PerfectDisk, and deleted version 1811, and re-installed version 1774. The backup folder is unavailable.

Still serious problems:
Running scan first time after update all appeared OK however cleaning took an extremely long time, I left things over an hour & the bar had not progressed, immediately after moving the mouse the bar sped up & completed scan.

On restart I could not access Windows & was left with a black screen, I forced shutdown & all looked OK but running JV 16 again the scan problem from the previous version was back - the scan didn't complete & program hung after trying to close the program with a not responding message.


I will now have to recover Windows from an image.

Indeed: each so called update / new version gives more problems than the previous one, although the developers pretend bugs were fixed and the program runs much faster :? Forget it!

What were exactly the symptoms? For example, did PerfectDisk display an error message and if so, what did it say.

We tested jv16 PowerTools version 4.2.0.1811 with PerfectDisk without any issues. Used Clean and SpeedUp My Computer most aggressive too and PerfectDisk was unaffected.

:D I just re-installed version 1811, cylcled it several times, and this time, there were no application conflicts. Probable conclusion , the initial installation was mismanaged.

Well this has to be the worst update I have ever experienced. Now using Win 10 latest update 1803 build 17134.167, your programme takes 30+sec's to open, Clean and speed up takes 30+ sec's to open. Broken short cuts if not told to ignore will remove all my desktop icons, that's if it even get's to that stage in most cases it stops resounding with windows and has to be closed with Task Manager. A total load of c**p.

Just in case you are wondering what system this lump of junk is on:- Z370, i8700K @ 5 Ghz, 32 Gb ram, Sumsung 960 Pro NvMe.

I await your comments.
