New tools
  • Startup Manager - Allows you to list all the applications which automatically start with Windows. You can remove applications from the list and add new ones, you can also disable programs (i.e. they remain on the list but don't any longer automatically start with Windows. You can later enable them again).
  • Registry Information - A tool which allows you to see exactly how much data is stored in the registry, as well as other information about the registry.
  • Registry Compact - Allows a quick and easy registry compact (also known as "registry defrag" and "registry compression").
  • File Tool - Opens the File Tool directly from the main window. You can then drag and drop files directly to the tool and modify them with the numerous features of the File Tool (such as Encryption, Wiping, Mass Renaming etc).
  • Directory Finder - Allows you to find directories based on a very rich set of search options. For example, you can list all empty directories, directories that contain at least N bytes of files, directories that contain at least N files etc.
  • Disk Wiper - Allows you to fully erase selected drives, the contents of individual directories, or to wipe all the free space of a drive. The exact method of wiping can be configured (i.e. how many times the data is written over) by the user.
Other new features
  • Internet update feature which shows the latest version of the product and tells instructions how to update to the latest version.
  • New features of the File Tools: Split and Empty. The Split feature allows you to split files to many parts, either by size (e.g. split a file to parts of 10 MB each) or by number (e.g. split a file to 10 parts). The feature contains very sophisticated file naming and simulation features not present in most other similar tools (which alone can cost up to $29.95!). The Empty feature allows you to reset a file (i.e. remove all of its contents), the feature comes very handy when you must flush hundreds of log files without removing the files.
  • The File Finder can now find files that have been modified/created/last accessed within the last N years, days, months, hours, minutes or seconds.
  • The File Analyzer can now automatically detect the language of the file, the following languages can be detected: English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Latin, Finnish and Swedish. Support for more languages might be added in the future.
  • Added shortcut to the Windows Calculator to the main window's shortcuts menu.
  • The speed of the Registry Cleaner is improved by 50% and the accuracy by 10%.
  • The entire Registry Monitor is rewritten giving it a performance boost of over 70%, also all stability issues of the feature are now fixed.
  • Many core functions are now optimized for maximal performance, especially on large sets of data (e.g. even the longest list of errors in the Registry Cleaner won't slow down the user interface at all)
  • The product's cpu idle time usage is minimized close to 0%.
  • Software Manager can now perform a full uninstallation, and doesn't only remove the software's registry entries.
  • Fixed many minor memory leaks.
  • Improved the startup time of the application.
  • Minor GUI improvements.
  • The product automatically removes non-used backup meta files and empty backups, which can be a result of e.g. interrupted backup creation.
  • Added the Full row select feature which allows you to select items without having to put the small tick to the check box of the line.
  • Highly improved printing feature can now handle even the largest lists.
  • Users can now configure which Internet search engine the product uses by default
