An updated version of jv16 PowerTools 2010 released. The updated version contains the following changes.

  • Bug fix: If you start the Clean and Fix My Computer using a command line paramter or a desktop icon, its Search Words box could contain “memSearchWords”
  • Bug fix: The Explore function under the More Functions menu of the Directory tool works on the first selected item of the list, while it should work on the highlighted item.
  • Bug fix: The Filename field of Startup Manager’s top panel always says “N/A”.
  • Bug fix: Closing a tool window with the filter panel visible, causes the program to crash to “Cannot change visibility in OnChange” if the same tool window is opened again.
  • Bug fix: Double clicking the line between two columns can cause sorting to occur, even as it should only resize the column.
  • Bug fix: Clicking the Start button in the Anti-Malware sometimes checks the “Scan the following download directories” option, even if the user had it unchecked before clicking Start.
  • Bug fix: The drag and drop of directories only works with the Anti-Malware the first time you open the tool, opening the tool again causes the drag and drop support to be disabled.
  • Bug fix: Using the Right-Click > List Control > Remove from list feature can cause the program to crash to an Access Violation if the same tool is used again.
  • Bug fix: Opening the Debug Tool can cause the program to crash to an Access Violation.
  • Bug fix: Attempting to open the Debug Tool shows the “Debug Tool not available because you are not running a beta build” error message twice.
  • Bug fix: Opening the Registry Info many times in a row after clicking Abort can cause the program to crash.
  • Bug fix: File Tool’s “Always show these columns” feature does not always work, e.g. with File Cleaner.
  • Improvement: The Registry Cleaner no longer reports keys relating to Norton/Symantec products as errors, these keys are protected against modifications by the Norton/Symantec product.
  • Improvement: It’s now possible to resize the very last column of the result lists.
  • Improvement: Date format selection box of the Settings now uses “HH:NN” notation instead of “HH:MM” in which “MM” was difficult to distinguish from months.
  • Improvement: Reduced the size of the Registry Compactor (RegCompact.exe) by about 50%.
  • Improvement: Reduced the flickering of the File Tool during list update operations.
  • Updated translations: Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, Czech, Japanese, Russian
