    "Nice little app."

    April 05, 2013   |   By tydicea

    Version: PowerTools Lite 2013 2.1.0.1200

    Pros

    Free, does what it says

    Cons

    none that I found yet

    Summary

    After reading an article on ransom-ware wreaking havoc on the internet I wanted to bolster the security of my PC. This little app has an immunizer feature that helps protect your system from malicious websites by downloading a blacklist which it then adds to your hosts file. I also tested HostsMan which is more feature rich, but intimidating to a non-techie. Ease of use make PowerTools Lite a great addition to a PC's security arsenal.

    "Easy to use cleaner"

    November 20, 2012   |   By Taffy80

    Version: PowerTools Lite 2013 2.1.0.1200

    Pros

    I agree with the previous comments that this is really easy to use and it does it's job. I give extra plus for the ability to clean the MRU files with the registry cleaning; one thing less to do.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything specific as a con. Not a big thing, but would like to be able to change the color of the interface. It was possible in one software that I used.

    Summary

    Nothing beats a freeware, so I recommend this to everyone with a computer. I don't consider myself as a skillful users, but I do know my way around a computer. So far I have liked this software alot, and will continue using it.

    "Good cleaner"

    November 17, 2012   |   By Redstripepants

    Version: PowerTools Lite 2013 2.1.0.1200

    Pros

    I was suprised, that it actually found troijan from my computer (I haven't even noticed about that). Yeah, it's clean and simple, but I dont know how difficult those programs are to use, anyhows (comparing to other programs in the market). I must use this more to say anything more. Online-threats are noticed themselves less, tho.

    Cons

    Well, it costs. I don't know, how much better this is comparing to CCleaner for example. However, it's really cheap and I think you can get more profit of buying one. I must think about that, when trial is over.

    Summary

    After all, I can recommend this to everyone - expecially for those, who are not that good of using computer. I didn't noticed any system messing (like that one review told) but I don't know then. I like this and it's a good product!

    "Easy and simple product, does what it promises"

    November 15, 2012   |   By Synsan

    Version: PowerTools Lite 2013 2.1.0.1200

    Pros

    - Clean user interface
    - Many languge-options to choose
    - Easy to use and simple
    - Freeware
    I must say, that I have this program only at Windows 7 and it's working perfectly. I'm semi-skillful using computer, but even I try to keep it clean, it still was full of everything stupid stuff.
    All was clean by couple button cliks! Nice :)

    Cons

    I haven't found errors from this, althought I haven't been using this product for long.

    Summary

    I am very basic computer-user and for me this works. I can recommend this to all, who want to keep their computer clean. It really is easy and simple and do things very fast :) (and everybody need's this kind of program, there's always _something_ to clean)
    And, if using programs in english is hard, there's 18 different languages to choose!

    "Corrupted Program/Computer!"

    November 12, 2012   |   By scottls59901

    Version: PowerTools Lite 2013 2.1.0.1200

    Pros

    It's Freeware, and Easy to install (un-ticked add-on).

    Cons

    1. In Default supposedly Safe Mode Reg Cleaner, it corrupted my Macrium Reflect (had to reinstall).

    2. I tried their passive Immunize (adds 14k+ Bad site/blocks to the System Hosts file...).
    My system immediately got slower, and my KIS 2013 Safe Money stopped working in FireFox 15.0.1.!?

    a. I submitted a System Status report... to KIS forum, and they came back to say that JVT had corrupted my System Hosts file.
    b. I had to Remove JVT Immunization (Restore...)/reboot, and run MS Fix-It to restore my Hosts file to Default.

    My computer is fast again! :o)

    Summary

    I'll stick with CCleaner, that I've never had a problem with for years (I still back-up/Reg though).

    I Never Run As Admin!- Any Reg/File Cleaner, as they Have deleted Protected System files...!
