Release Notes

An updated version of jv16 PowerTools has been released. The latest version number is 5.0.0.527.

Change Log Since Build 513

Bug Fixes

  1. The previous version fixed the problem about Firefox bookmarks being modified or removed during System Cleaner. The original bug was rare, only occurring in some systems. The last version fixed it for many users but not perfectly. This build now fixes it for good.
  2. The program may fail to start on some systems. If this happens, you will only see the initial splash screen and nothing else ever shows up.
  3. The Initial Setup can take a very long time to run on some systems.
  4. Tools menu > Maintenance > Flush Cache does not trigger the Initial Setup to run again, even if it says it would.
  5. If you don’t have a browser installed, for example Firefox, the System Cleaner will still search for its cookies and history data. This makes the scan a few seconds slower than what it should be.
  6. System Cleaner can incorrectly say no items found even if some were found.
  7. On small screens the splash screen’s bottom texts can overlap the version number text.
  8. System Cleaner can ask for permission to close web browsers even if you have selected not to run any browser related cleaning modules.
  9. System Cleaner can search for temporary files even if the temporary file scan module has been disabled from Settings.
  10. The Ignore List may not work in cases of you want to ignore certain types of registry data, and the System Cleaner will therefore continue to list this data.
  11. Starting the System Cleaner can show confirmation text in English, even if you are using the program in another language.
  12. The program can display Stringlist Out Of Bounds error when starting. This is a very rare issue, happening only in some systems.
  13. Ignoring software with the Software Uninstaller via the Right Click menu does not remove it from the list, it is only not shown the next time even though System Cleaner removes the item from list immediately after item is ignored.
  14. Internet Optimizer can get stuck in the Starting … screen.

Feature Improvements:

  1. Improved the detection and the listing of browser cache data.
  2. System Cleaner’s information message boxes are now shown only if System Cleaner is open and active.
  3. Made the user interface for the System Cleaner settings clearer.
  4. Installing a new version of PowerTools over the old one causes in some cases of important (but not critical) cache files never to be created, as the Initial Setup has already ran when the old version was installed. Now, the program will detect if such cache files are missing and perform an Initial Setup again if needed.
  5. Increased the waiting thresholds of information messages in the application to avoid too many tips or other non essential message boxes to be displayed in too rapid progression.
  6. All the three main tool text captions are now visible. Before, only the default tool or the currently selected tool caption text was visible, which some users found difficult to use.
  7. The program will now attempt to detect a running setup of jv16 PowerTools and automatically close itself. This way you are not prompted with an error message of a file in use if you try to update while the program is still running.
  8. My Account’s Apply button is now only visible if needed.
  9. Aborting a scan can cause the user interface to get not responsive. Therefore, the Aborting scans feature is currently not available until we improve and fix it.
