The application doesn't just detect problems, it can also fix them. With it you are able to repair Registry Editor and Task Manager problems and various typical errors.

Since malware components are able to alter the kernels structure of your system, the application allows you to lock certain privileges. For example, you can have PowerTool forbid the creation of processes and threads, disable registry editing and deny creating of any files.

The application also provides features that allow you to locate the scanned files on your computer, verify their signatures and dump memory, and even upload them online to be scanned for malicious content. As far as Startup goes, the application offers you a full list of all the process that run and enables you to backup a selected file or delete it.

PowerTool comes with a self-protect feature that you can certainly make use of especially since you can also have the application run in the background immediately after you login to your Windows account.
