Release Notes for Version 7.3.0.1369

jv16 PowerTools Change Log Since b1320

Feature Improvements:

  1. New tool: File Wiper allows you to delete files in a way the files cannot be recovered with data recovery products.
  2. New tool: File Deleter allows you to delete locked and otherwise write-protected files.
  3. New tool: Web Blocker allows you to block ads and websites of specific types, such as social media websites.
  4. New feature: The program now supports password protection. You can now define a password in Settings and if you do so, the program will require a password input before it can be used.
  5. The temporary file cleaning feature of the System Cleaner has been fully re-designed and implemented. You can now choose exactly how you want temporary data to be cleaned within Settings > System Cleaner.
  6. Major improvements for the performance and accuracy of the Software Uninstaller.
  7. Major improvements to the overall user experience for example by having the user interface to better communicate to the user what is happening.
  8. Improved the user interface of the File Finder, Big File Finder and Duplicate File Finder for easier and faster use.
  9. Improved the overall responsiveness of the UI.
  10. Improved the way the category selection works in System Cleaner. Before, selecting or deselecting a category could cause a long delay with ‘please wait’ box covering the screen. This is now much smoother and there is no ‘please wait’ screen needed.
  11. Added an option to disable all tips and warnings from the app. This is now available in the Settings.
  12. Added an option to hide the navigation panel category texts. This is in Settings > General.
  13. Added an option to change the program’s language to the Settings. Previously, it was only available in the app’s main menu, but a key setting like this should also be available in the Settings screen. Now it is.
  14. Improved the support for smaller window sizes in the Settings screen.
  15. Changed the default configuration of the Software Uninstaller not to list built-in Windows apps or any Microsoft related products. This greatly improves the scan speed of the Software Uninstaller and in most cases, there is no need to list these anyway. The setting can be adjusted from Settings > Software Uninstaller.
  16. Improved the way the program works with smaller screen resolutions.
  17. Added support for scroll bar for the navigation menu. It will be visible only when needed, that is, the app window size being smaller than the space required to show all the navigation icons.
  18. Added an option to keep completed modules in the scan progress screen. This is now enabled by default. Previously, completed modules were removed from the screen which could have made following the progress of the scan more difficult to follow.
  19. Double clicking a results row in System Cleaner now opens the item’s registry key in RegEdit or folder in Explorer.
  20. Improved the sizing and scaling of the System Cleaner’s category selector.
  21. Improved the way the program communicates what it is currently doing to the user.
  22. The program now explains better if the Initial Setup needs to be run again. This needs to be done if the system configuration has changed too much since the time Initial Setup was originally run, for example, after a big System Cleaner cleaning session.
  23. System Cleaner’s category listing now uses the same font as the rest of the UI.
  24. Duplicate File Finder now supports finding duplicates of specific size and/or duplicate files that have not been modified within a given number of days.
  25. Improved support for systems with multiple monitors.
  26. Finder, Big File Finder and Duplicate Finder now remember the previously used search from paths.
  27. Dashboard’s CPU and RAM usage areas now display a color key legend in every screen size.
  28. Clicking any button of a message box now closes the box faster.
  29. You no longer need to click Close to end the installation process of the app, it now happens automatically.
  30. System Cleaner and Software Uninstaller now display a popup tooltip panel allowing you to read the long result text rows easier.
  31. Improved the detection of software left-overs in Software Uninstaller.
  32. The program now starts with a fade-in effect.
  33. Comes with improved Finnish, Dutch and Russian translations.

Bug Fixes

  1. Cleaning the system with the System Cleaner could cause the cleaning process to complete so fast you cannot uncheck the ‘Restart computer when done’ option in the progress screen, leading to an unwanted system reboot. The process going to fast bug is now fixed, plus the Settings now contain an option to disable the restart altogether.
  2. Changing the search options in Finder, Big File Finder and Duplicate Finder did not always update the screen contents correctly without having to resize or maximize the application window.
  3. The dashboard could show an empty CPU usage value inside the circular element when the app starts.
  4. Going from Software Uninstaller to Uninstall Software screen and then clicking the Back button could cause the app to remain in ‘Please Wait’ stage until any new tool is opened.
  5. The program could start without properly initializing its main user interface until any tool is opened or the app window resized.
  6. Using the Dashboard’s Finder Panel’s top right corner button Right Click > Finder option to open the Finder tool, caused the tool open but with the UI incorrectly initialized.
  7. Scrolling the Dashboard’s list up and down immediately after the program had started, could cause the scrolling not to be smooth and the CPU usage to be high for a few seconds.
  8. In the My Account tool the Buy Now and Apply buttons could both sometimes display the default button frame, when naturally only one button should ever be the defined default button.
  9. Starting the Software Updater could have shown the Finalizing step too early, causing it to remain on screen for a long time while the tool is loading.
  10. The translations menu did not show the name of some languages, such as Japanese and Korean, in these languages, only in English.
  11. The UI of the Big File Finder did not scale very well for small app window sizes.
  12. System Cleaner results might not get automatically selected in some systems, even if the option was checked from Settings.
  13. The program could display an ‘integer overflow’ error message if the program was run in a system that had been running for over six days.
  14. The program could display an ‘access violation’ error message when started. However, this was a very rare bug and it was not system specific, meaning simply starting the program again would allow you to use the app.
  15. If you pressed Ctrl + S before the main program window was fully loaded, it could cause the app display an Access Violation error message.
  16. It was possible to double click the Clean And Fix All or Uninstall button of the Software Uninstaller while a confirmation message window was visible and this could lead to unexpected outcomes, such as an empty software uninstallation confirmation screen. This bug was entirely cosmetic.
  17. If the program was started on a non-English Windows, it would first start automatically in that language, then convert back to English and then back to the system language only when the main dashboard was shown after the Initial Setup.
  18. Software Uninstaller could list the same app twice, if it had a special character in its name. For example, ‘Forté Agent’ and a duplicate entry as ‘Forte Agent’.
  19. If you clicked the top right X button of the message box to restart jv16 PowerTools after changing its language, the app wouldn’t close or restart, but instead it remained on screen with possibly half translated UI.
  20. Clicking Software Updater from the main menu did not open the tool.
  21. Quickly clicking between Task Manager and some other tool could make the app to display only a blank screen and without any way to continue to use the app other than restart it.
  22. System Cleaner could display duplicate error categories in its categories listing.
  23. Fixed some typos from the English user interface.

Known issues

During the quality control for this version, we have also identified the following bugs or issues in the new version. These issues were found in our testing but are not yet fixed. These issues are:

  1. The text of the circular progress element in the progress screen, such as when scanning the system, can be sometimes drawn to the left side of the screen. This issue is evident if the window is resized during the progress screen being visible.
  2. Sometimes the program fails to correctly fetch the icon of a running application, causing the CPU or RAM listing areas of the Dashboard to show either a missing or incorrect icon.
  3. Using the Dashboard’s Right Click > Finder option to open the Finder tool, causes the tool open but with the UI incorrectly initialized.
  4. Scrolling the Dashboard’s list up and down immediately after the program has started, can cause the scrolling not to be smooth and the CPU usage high for a few seconds.
  5. In the My Account tool the Buy Now and Apply buttons can both sometimes display the default button frame, when naturally only one button should ever be the defined default button.
  6. Starting the Software Updater may show the Finalizing step too early, causing it to remain on screen for a long time while the tool is loading.

All of the above issues are cosmetic and will be fixed in future versions.
