I used this for some time many, many years ago, today it's just not needed or IMO it's not even the right program for Win 7 & up. Registry cleaning with today's PC's makes little difference in speed & risks causing issues you may not even find for some time. If you have regular C:\ images fair enough if not avoid it. Many of the PC's I fix are messed up with so called 'clean/speed up' programs - Look at the past bug fixes & the times the accuracy of registry cleaning has been fixed.

better have a backup before you use this..... it works but it can cause problems

Their open source project to loot their end users has failed, leastways that's what they stated as an excuse for abandoning the project after collecting a nice amount of money which has just disappeared after all. They redesigned the icons in haste and are merchandizing the same old junk. The last OS that JV16 somewhat worked with was Windows XP.
Modern computing as well as new Windows systems and registry will not accept this old school cleaning and tune up softpack, it only causes damage. It needs a brand new approach to system maintenance which meets the system requirements that this tool fails to deliver and will never do as the development was halted many years ago and the company is only interested in ripping off their costumers.
To perform tune up by system cleaning, to fix system and registry errors please run proper analysis, contact technical support or visit Microsoft FixIt site that provides system repair patches for many different problems that will restore the damaged registry keys and errors to the original Windows settings without deleting or modifying any other values.

I'm surprised to see a new version of this released, given all the comments on the Macecraft forum and elsewhere that complained about the company founder absconding to the far east with money given to take the product open source. I never contributed to that, given that I already had a lifetime license. I haven't used it on Windows 7, as I haven't seen the need. For uninstalling crapware, I use IOBit Uninstaller (free and works well, but installs a trial version of other IOBit software that must be uninstalled itself). However, for my former Windows XP PC, it was the best registry tool (of a generally bad lot) I had tried. Several others, including Norton Utilities, had screwed up the system so bad as to require a reinstall from scratch. I didn't use agressive settings, however. My opinion nowadays is that registry cleaners in general, are unnecessary. With CPUs as fast as they are now, even a bloated registry can't take that long to process. I do think that using a registry is a bad design. A program should use it's own .ini file, resource file, or something similar, to store user and other program information. *Nix has the right idea.

I have used Power Tools for years without major problems, and just upgraded to this latest version (184.108.40.2064) using the Platinum lifetime license I purchased a few months ago. I did not have any problems receiving it.
But as with any registry cleaner, you have to be careful. I have never had a crash or problem with the operating system because of it, but I do have to exclude one special-purpose utility. That is what the exclusions are for. I think the registry compactor and a few other options are more trouble than they are worth, and there is no point in removing items that will be recreated on the next reboot, but you can just add those items to the exclusion list. So learn how to use it, and if you like cleaning registries, it is one of the more thorough ones out there.
