Never had any issues in 15 years of using jv16 powertools.
I think it was one of the best registry tools bar none. That is until they started to make it better. as a result of all that tinkering it is almost impossible to use. So slow it is hardly worth the effort. I have been using this tool since the early 80's when it went by the name of the original programmer.
