"Good, but it was better before."

December 23, 2004

 |  Version: Jv16 PowerTools 1.4.1.238

Summary

I liked it as a RegCleaner much more. Now it has more options of which many are not really necessary. That is what I do not like with 'serious all in one' programs - they put a lot of options in, and many of them are not needed, since I use other programs for them. Thus I have a sort of unwanted 'overlapping' since I can do the same thing with two or three programs, but usually one does the best job and others are useless. RegCleaner was all I ever needed.

"BEST REGISTRY CLEANER TODAY"

January 05, 2004

 |  Version: Jv16 PowerTools 1.4.1.238

Summary

I used Version 1.3 (free) for 3 years without a system crash under Win98SE. Version 1.4 isn't free, but what good software is?
Very effective and stable program, which I highly recommend.

"version 1.3 is free--look for it."

September 16, 2003  |  By Ben Abrams

 |  Version: Jv16 PowerTools 1.4.1.238

Summary

They went from free to $30. The guy who said that $30 was too much was right. Screen takes a little time to figure out but this registry cleaner is better than System Mechanic.

"30 trial ran out in 4 1/2 hours"

September 08, 2003

 |  Version: Jv16 PowerTools 1.4.1.238

Summary

Downloaded it and used it once, went to breakfast then returned to examine the product further and it suggested that my 30 day trial period had ended. I uninstalled it & e-mailed the company a nice fix-it letter. Then I used another reg-editor to clean this ones tracks out of my registry shortly thereafter.

"Not too bad"

September 03, 2003  |  By fair_is_fair

 |  Version: Jv16 PowerTools 1.4.1.238

Summary

This is a handy tool and worth a few bucks. But 30 dollars is way too much. I would think 10 to 15 dollars fair. Guess I'll go with Regvac.

"Good untill they want money"

September 02, 2003  |  By generic

 |  Version: Jv16 PowerTools 1.4.1.238

Summary

I used to just use RegCleaner which was all I really needed- simple, no frills and gets the job done. I also had the older version of JV16 PT which apart from the different interface, had the same features, stability, performance, etc, plus the fact that it was free.

"Disappointing"

August 24, 2003

 |  Version: Jv16 PowerTools 1.4.1.238

Summary

This used to be RegCleaner by Jouni. That was a great product that I've used faithfully for the past 2 years or so. It was free, very simple interface, easy to use, no mess-ups, very thorough. I loved it and I recommended it to all kinds of people whenever they had registry problems. Then the guy got greedy. He made the whole program more complicated, with lots of features that all basically do the same thing. The interface is confusing and not at all user friendly. And worst of all, you have to pay for it after 30 days. This is mentioned nowhere. You download it, think maybe you can live with the new cruddy interface if it's still the same great program. Then you notice that down in the corner, there's a little countdown going on. I don't know how much he's asking, but it's not worth it. Shame on you, Jouni. I maybe would have paid for it, if you had left it alone. But now it's ugly and too complicated. Not worth a dime.

"Better than expected."

August 12, 2003

 |  Version: Jv16 PowerTools 1.4.1.238

Summary

This isn't free anymore, but that's okay..This program IS worth paying for. Tons of excellent features. My only problem is with the interface...Could be a little more user friendly. Other than that, I'm 100% pleased.

"creep"

August 05, 2003

 |  Version: Jv16 PowerTools 1.4.1.238

Summary

This is a creepware. Not that it's created by a creep- God forbid! It's free until you install it, then it starts creeping to become something else. Sounds familiar?
