"Registry cleaner and windows utility suite"

Overview

In essence, the jv16 PowerTools 2011 is a complete suite that allows you to optimize your Windows functions and utilities. In other words, the program is especially designed to take care of unnecessary functions that lead to OS latency and sometimes, strange behavior. Besides optimizing and maintaining your operating system, the application cleans and fixes your computer, can recover files and folders that you have deleted by mistake and provides complete uninstall functions that guarantee no left over logs will remain or corrupt your system registry.

Installation

In order to install jv16 PowerTools 2011 on your machine you will need to have a Windows 2000 operating system or better. Even though the installation kit only has about 10 MB, take note that the storage on your hard drive will depend on the features that you choose during installation. If you were to install all the available features, you will need approximately 30 MB. It is important to note that if you want to install the anti-malware feature, then you will need an internet connection too. Other than that, the installation of the jv16 PowerTools 2011 is smooth, fast and does not contain additional software or toolbars.

When you first open the application after installation, you will be able to choose the language of the jv16 PowerTools 2011. Since some antivirus programs will see it as a trojan, it is important that you follow the tip from the tutorial and add the program into your firewall exclusion list. Afterwards, the software will analyze your current Windows settings and components in order to provide you with some recommendations on how you can improve the system’s performance. Usually, the first application will take longer, meaning anything from two to ten minutes, depending on your machine. When this phase is over, the application restarts itself and you are ready to use it.

Interface

The jv16 PowerTools 2011 has an interesting and appealing interface. The main functions of the program can be easily accessed from the small vertical menu, located on the left side of the application. By accessing any of the main menu commands you will see a certain number of submenus in the rest of the display. Right underneath the main menu, you will see two percentage bars that are indicators of your registry and PC health. In the upper right corner of the display, you can access live support or the handbook, if you choose to install it.

Whilst the interface appears intuitive at first, it is actually intended mostly for advanced users that know what they are doing. It is worth mentioning that the results displayed by the jv16 PowerTools 2011 are quite visually appealing, as you can see graphic details, a summary and distribution. 

Pros

Amazingly for an application that includes dozens of functions and options, you would be surprised with the quickness of the analysis and diagnosis. Unlike other similar software, the jv16 PowerTools 2011 can help you improve your privacy by deleting your log history, and it is able to detect applications that are potentially dangerous. By setting it to scan the files you download, the application can help you detect dialers, rootkits, trojans, viruses and hijackers. As a side note, although it can inform you of malicious files you are currently downloading, it does need an antivirus supplemental program as its database is not updated on a daily basis.

Cons

Because it addresses medium to advanced users, you must know what you are doing before purchasing or using the jv16 PowerTools 2011. Not all users understand certain features, such as Registry Find & Replace or the suggestions to improve the overall system performance.

Alternatives

Two of the most common alternatives to the jv16 PowerTools 2011 are the Glary Utilities and TuneUp Utilities.

Conclusion

All in all, the jv16 PowerTools 2011 addresses people that want to customize and tweak their operating system so that they get the best performance and responsiveness from it. This application is remarkably good at finding deleted information from your computer, eliminating the leftover logs from programs you no longer need. It also provides easy access to fine-tuning your registries and OS.
