the following changes.

  • Bug fix: Windows warns about incorrect certificate when starting PowerTools – This is due to the certificate used to sign the program expired, the new version is now signed wit a new certificate.
  • Bug fix: The program can crash with Out of Memory error message.
  • Bug fix: The Back button in the main user interface isn’t translated. This fix does not require changes to the translation files.
  • Bug fix: The Select feature to automatically select all but one of the found duplicate files is missing from the Duplicate File Finder. It’s back now.
  • Bug fix: Disabling or Enabling startup items with the Startup Manager can lead to the progress panels to be displayed incorrectly (two panels overlapping each other).
  • Bug fix: Program doesn’t always detect real-time anti-virus products that can affect PowerTools’ performance. PowerTools should display warning if such program is detected. The warning should only show at most once a day when PowerTools is started and at most ten times in total.

  • Bug fix: The Startup Optimizer can in some specific combinations of installed software make the Windows shutdown slower.

  • Bug fix: Removed reference from the Maintenance Tool to the removed statistics feature.
  • Bug fix: In some systems, enabling the password protection made the program no longer start (the password input window never showed up).

  • Improvement: Improved the speed of the Registry Finder.
  • Improvement: Now ships with the Czech and Korean translations and the Chinese, Dutch, Polish and Swedish translations have been updated.
  • Improvement: My Account feature now automatically checks for a license after you enter your information, without the need to click the Update button.
  • Improvement: My Account feature now automatically informs us if you have bought a license but the license installation has failed, this will make our servers automatically generate a new license file for you.
  • Improvement: If you once disable Startup Optimizer, the default setting for it in Clean and Fix My Computer will now also be disabled.
  • Improvement: Improved the accuracy of the registry cleaning engine.
  • Improvement: PowerTools can now better detect and skip directories that seem like temporary directories but which are not. For example, if you use directory “C:\Temp” to store your temperature measurement documents, PowerTools is now able to detect that the data inside the directory is important and do not offer those files to be removed as temporary files.
  • Improvement: After applying a new license, PowerTools will now show more clearly that a license has been applied and that the program must be now restarted.
  • Improvement: Improved Software Uninstaller’s ability to find installed software from the system.

  • Improvement: Added the forum link to the main window.
