Release Notes for Version 6.0.0.1133

Change Log Since Build .1120

Feature Improvements:

  1. Major accuracy improvement: Software Uninstaller finds on average 25% more data relating to installed software, and System Cleaner contains a new registry cleaning scan module.
  2. Major performance improvements: Initial Setup now runs on average 20% faster and System Cleaner about 10% faster.
  3. The dashboard now shows whether your hard drives are old style mechanical hard drives or SSD. For SSDs, it will also show whether the drive is SATA SSD or NVMe SSD.
  4. The program now attempts to detect Windows shutdown and if one is detected, the program handles that more gracefully. This applies to both the main jv16 PowerTools and the Widget.
  5. You can now enable and disable an automated reboot within the scan progress screen for system cleaning and uninstallation of software.
  6. Improved the overall smoothness of the dashboard and the scan progress UI.
  7. The widget will now blend to the desktop background smoother after the mouse cursor leaves the Widget app area.
  8. This version comes with many updated translations, such as: Dutch, Swedish and Russian. German translation will be updated soon, too.

Bug Fixes

  1. The program can display Access Violation and Privileged Instruction error message when starting, or when the Widget starts. This mainly happens with systems that have a third party application called WindowBlinds installed. This is a cosmetic issue, that is, it does not cause any harm to the system. Nevertheless, it is an annoying and it is now fixed.
  2. Uninstalling jv16 PowerTools can leave up to three Widget related files behind to the C:\Users\xx\AppData\Local\ directory. This is now fixed, and any previously left behind files will also be removed by this version’s uninstaller.
  3. The capitalization of some of the navigation menu items can be wrong when using the program in other than the English user interface.
  4. The Widget’s setting in jv16 PowerTools Settings window does not work properly. For example, you cannot re-enable Widget from the Settings if you have disabled it via its “Exit and never show again” feature.
  5. The tooltips shown by the left navigation panel mixes English with translated texts. This only happens a Non English UI is used.
  6. The dashboard can show gibberish (such as 0xB21A12) as the RAM manufacturer name.
  7. Automatic Updates. This feature has now been entirely re-written and it is now working. If enabled, you should automatically receive all the hotfix and small updates to the program from now on. Major new updates still require a manual download and installation.
  8. The program can display a cut message saying “if the download didn’t start, go to https://”. The message should include the correct address. This is now fixed.
  9. Software Uninstaller could incorrectly remove a shared software installation directory. For example, if you have Firefox and Thunderbird installed from Mozilla, uninstalling one can cause the incorrect removal of the shared c:\users\x\AppData\Local\Mozilla\ directory.
