MaceCraft PowerTools 2009
I recently installed Windows again just because I wanted to use it’s Movie Maker. I edited the video I wanted and I just left it there for a month. I dual booted XP and Ubuntu Intrepid.
Earlier I booted again to Windows XP just to play some StarCraft BroodWar on Battle.net. I saw that although I didn’t have a lot of programs installed my machine was a bit lazy.
After a little research I came across jv16 PowerTools 2009. I installed it and cleaned up my registry, deleted temporary files and rebooted. I have to say Windows was running smoother.
Yes, with just a registry cleanup and temporary files deletion. I thought … hmmm, I came across a program Microsoft should have incorporated with their Windows.
MaceCraft’s PowerTools 2009 can do much more than just cleaning up your registry and deleting temporary files.
You can also:
- disable certain Windows processes which have no useful function
- get rid of the leftovers programs you unninstalled in the past ( yes, programs do that … they leave all kinds of junk on your hard drive even if you uninstall it via Add/Remove Programs
- manage Windows services from a much friendly interface
- wipe your hard drive ( even if you delete files, they still remain on your hard drive and can be recovered with appropiate software ). What I really liked is that you can wipe out only your free space and not loose the data you currently have.
- detect duplicate files
- make backups
- recover lost files
- and much more …
You can download the software and use it free for 30 days. The cool thing is that the trial doesn’t contain any advertisments or annoying popups and stuff. The setup is only 3 MB large, doesn’t require to much resources so you can use it easily on older computers too.
The month you’ll use it for free will surely make you purchase the software.
It’s price is $29.95 and the amount is way to low for what it can do.
