Change Log – What’s New
(compared to 184.108.40.2061)Here is a complete list of bug fixes and improvements that we did since jv16 PowerTools 2017 – Version 220.127.116.111 was released on Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016:
Fix: Running the Clean and SpeedUp My Computer with very specific system configurations, for instance Windows XP or Windows 8.1 with Microsoft Office installed, can cause Windows no longer to load the Desktop (if this has happened to you, simply restart to Safe Mode and restore the System Restore Point jv16 PowerTools automatically created for you, or use Windows’ Repair Startup feature.)
Fix: After clicking the button to update your data, the My Account window can only flicker and not display any information whether the operation worked or failed.
Fix: The software can display an error message “Cannot create file xxx. The system cannot find the path specified.”
Fix: The software can display an error message of “Cannot open file CVSData.xdat. The file does not exist.”
Fix: Running the Clean and SpeedUp My Computer can cause PowerTools to display an error message: Access violation at address 00021600.
Fix: The Clean and SpeedUp My Computer may disable parts of Corel WordPerfect office suite under some special circumstances.
Fix: In some cases, it is not possible to disable the Startup Timer. You can open the Startup Timer tool and choose to disable it, but the next time you open it, it will say the feature is enabled again.
Fix: Running the File Cleaner in Windows 8.1 with the most aggressive settings and with the option to remove unused fonts, can cause in some systems the File Cleaner to list system font files to be removed.
Fix: Check For Updates can show “n/a” as the latest product version.
Fix: The software can display an error message of “Cannot change Visible in OnShow or OnHide”.
Fix: In some rare cases, the Clean and SpeedUp My Computer may not list any of the found registry errors, if you perform the scan again, only then the found registry errors and leftovers are listed.
Fix: If the Clean and SpeedUp My Computer is set to run in a way it automatically fixes or deletes the found items (not recommended), it does not reboot the computer even if the “Restart computer after done” checkbox is checked.
Fix: Pressing Ctrl + Shift to enable Debug Mode does not work from the software’s main window.
Fix: When trying to disable a specific kind of automatically starting software in Windows 10, the Startup Manager can display an error message of Failed to Access “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupfolder\”
Fix: In some systems the Clean and SpeedUp My Computer can take a very long time to run (over 20 minutes).
Fix: Returning back to the results screen of Clean and SpeedUp My Computer from the Custom Fix screen can cause the Delete and Fix buttons to remain hidden.
Fix: When opening the About window, the screen can sometimes flicker and the program returns to the Main Window instead showing the About window.
Fix: Running the Clean and SpeedUp My Computer with the “automatically fix found errors” option shows a “Please select at least one item” error if no errors were found from the registry.
Improvement: Software Uninstaller can better detect software installed to the computer.
Improvement: Software Uninstaller is more accurate in detecting the full name and version of installed software.
Improvement: The Clean and SpeedUp My Computer, as well as the File Cleaner, can detect previously cleaned but backed up temp files from the backups directory of jv16 PowerTools X. There is no need to list these, and this no longer happens with this build.
Improvement: File Cleaner’s and File Tool’s Delete On Reboot feature now asks user to reboot the computer after use. Before, user was asked to restart computer only when PowerTools was closed.
Improvement: Added Japanese translation.
Improvement: The Main Window now opens up and loads faster.
Improvement: The Clean and SpeedUp My Computer tool now scans the system faster, especially in cases where the system contains a lot of registry errors.
