Developed by Macecraft Software, jv16 PowerTools 2012 is a brand new version of their excellent utility suite for Windows. It comes with a huge number of improvements (see the extensive list here). With an amazingly small download (only 10.4 MB), the installation is smooth and simple with clear, well-thought-out dialogs. Set up takes only a few minutes to complete and you're quickly ready to optimize your system.
Another nice thing about the setup is the absence of any attempt to slip bloatware past you. This is something I've seen more and more and I find it sneaky and underhanded. Happily, this setup process is straightforward and has no such attempts included.
The program itself is not a resource hog like so many commercial suites, so once running you won't have trouble with resources running low. As it starts, the program analyzes your system, then restarts and brings you to the nicely laid out welcome screen and main interface.Since the program has scanned your system, it's able to give the results of its first checkup: Registry Health and PC Health. As you can see from the screenshot below, my PC has some issues!
The first thing you notice is the list of main choices of tool suites on the left side: Home; Registry Tools; File Tools; System Tools; Privacy Tools; and the three other main menu choices: Backups; Action History; and Settings. Clicking on any of these tabs reveals the specific tools available under that heading. The total number of tools available is quite remarkable and it's hard to imagine anything you'd need that isn't included.
A very nice and comforting touch is, when running any of the available tools, the developers allow you to choose the level of aggressiveness vs. safety you prefer, as well as giving you simple explanations of what each tool does.
A quick look at the Settings tab brings up several options for customizing the program to your needs and liking. You can tweak the interface, customize your backups, et cetera.
The program, jv16 PowerTools 2012 is available as a $29.95 instant download, which is a very reasonable price for such a comprehensive suite of tools for your PC. Alternatively, you can choose to download the free trial version and try it for 60 days before deciding. I think you'll enjoy the ease of use, the clear interface and dialogs, and especially the new health and speed of your Windows PC!
