Just one warning if I may, please take it from me. The new version has a "Decrap my Computer" feature that promises to mass remove preinstalled bloatware.
This is a cheat, it only serves business purposes for better selling by promising to make your computer faster, but extremely dangerous. There is a little warning in the mass uninstall window, " Only use this option if you know what you are doing ! " i.e. they get rid of responsibility and leave you with the blame for destroying your PC. You can't be smart enough, you surely will kill your PC.
Please note that preinstalled software in your PC are integrated in your OS in a highly complex way and removing any of them without learning about the consequences might corrupt your system.
Some of them are Windows setting or system utility sotfpack, just the same as JV16 but comes as default specifically designed for your OS, and JV16 is busy to quickly remove it. But they are fully integrated. Please don't remove them even if you never want to use them.
Some others are associated one with another, and if you uninstall one you will kill three other important functions. Again, many of them are not even installed, just setup exe files and you need to check the agreement check-box to install and start them. They don't cause any problems, leave them there later you might need them.
Yet, if you want to get rid of them preinstalled software, - not all of them bloatware - please use the OEM original software uninstaller/reinstaller utility. It will uninstall the software or bloatware in a way specifically designed for your PC.
JV16 doesn't know how to do that.
The OEM's own default uninstaller will remove them by only removing what is not integrated in the system, only deletes unnecessary registry keys and leaves the critical values intact. It is designed for that as the OEM bears responsibility for their products.
JV16 does not, they will call you dumb who doesn't understand the system if their softpack breaks it.
Also, please use the OEM own , in most cases animated helper. It will tell you how to uninstall bloatware, which of them can be uninstalled, in what order, i.e. uninstall this one to first and then that one to second etc. This is the proper expert way that JV16 doesn't know how to do, as it is different for every and each PC.
Be careful making changes with JV16 because if it fails you and you uninstall JV16, you will encounter serious difficulties in restoring changes you have made with it. Use Windows and the OEM own, completely safe and compatible features, they come as default, and you can undo changes at any time safely.
Again, Macecraft is selling functions that comes as default for each PCs straight from the OEM.

This software is dangerous because it has been hopelessly buggy for long years and NOT because the users don't know what they do. We know what we do.
It has even messed up, as many earlier comments put it, the Windows system of experienced computer experts, too.
It is dangerous because it doesn't work well on W7 and W8 and even on XP it works with incidents.
And finally, it is dangerous because most of its functions come as default for Windows7 and Windows8, and Jv16 does the same thing only to mess with the much better default Windows functions to ask money for that.

It looks like @Hilbert (May 21, 2012) was on spot. Just read the news that Mozilla is going to abandon the whole Thunderbird project.

I went back to version 220.127.116.11 (20100228).
This new one consumes too much RAM, and I think it requires too much commitment from users as if it was made for advanced users, or I specifically I don't need many of its new features. I don't think Mozilla has any clear vision of what they really wanna do. They are heading for something but I don't know what.
I do not think it is very useful or user friendly, they might prefer their business plans to real software development.
I think it could have been a good idea to release two versions, a Tb basic and Tb premium, and leave the version 18.104.22.168 as it is and continue the security and technical support and updates. I use v 22.214.171.124 until I can and then I will change to a different email client.

@Uriel, or should I say Macecraft. Couldn't you come up with something new or better promotional comment? The last one was almost the exact copy of the many previous ones - the meaningless "I couldn't live without it, ...the wild cards".
Not just here, but when I look up any other review boards I find the same fake promotional post for JV. " I couldn't live without it" etc.
What kind of review is this? Macecraft, your softpack is just the same embarrassment as your unethical kind of marketing, yet you are unable to push the ratings higher.
Please, don't use review boards for marketing, pay the site owner for placing your ads in a professional way.
