Editors' review

System CheckUp gives you the tools to keep your PC running smoothly by scanning for errors and removing problem files. The app's intuitive interface makes deciding what to scan and what to remove as clear as possible, so users of all experience levels can be comfortable using the program.

Pros

Nice interface: The interface of this app features clear explanations for each Menu item. It also explains what it's scanning as it goes. No matter how experienced you are with this type of program, you'll feel confident you understand what's going on.

Specific deletion: This app also allows you to select specific files to delete or not after the scan is over. You can expand the Results categories fully to see each individual file the program has identified as a problem, and just selecting or unselecting check boxes lets you choose what to delete.

Cons

Trial limitations: The trial version of this program is really only a scan. There is no additional functionality, and if you want to fix the problems the scan detects, you have to purchase the full version for $4.95 and then install it.

Bottom Line

System CheckUp provides a nice set of tools that you can use to keep your machine running smoothly. And despite the fact that you can't see how well the program cleans your computer with the trial version, the low purchase price means you're not taking a huge risk if you decide to invest in the full program.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of System CheckUp 3.4.0.47.

    "Scareware, does nothing"

    December 07, 2013   |   By FleetCommand

    Version: System CheckUp 3.4.0.47

    Pros

    Nothing. Really, nothing.

    Cons

    Even on a freshly installed Windows 8.1 virtual machine, it claims to have found problems including "faulty Internet connectivity". Needs Internet connection but there is no telling what it sends or receives.

    Summary

    Too dodgy for a freeware that does nothing.

    "Something rotten"

    October 28, 2013   |   By Wilt

    Version: System CheckUp 3.4.0.47

    Pros

    I can't find any in particular, in view of the cons and the summary of my experiences.

    Cons

    I ran System CheckUp, which AOL provides its members. Lots of things found, but I needed to buy System Mechanic to fix it. So I did, but I could not install it and get it to run on my Win7 64-bit PC (tried twice). So I uninstalled it and then called Iolo tech support. They downloaded and installed and could not get it to run either. So then they run Malwarebytes and find issues, they abort the program and state that the problems found are the reason that System Mechanic will not run. He offers a service policy of $199 for one year of support, and he promises to fix the problems reported by Malwarebytes and promises to get System Mechanic running. He tries, over and over, to convince me. I hear other reps on the phone with other victims, being told similar stories, to fix different problems. Lots of spyware or viruses on my PC which is protected by Microsoft Security Essentials?! I end the call.

    Summary

    I search the web and discover the Modum Operandi of Iolo is to tell you they can fix whatever problem (even fixing a not-printing printer) if you buy their $200 service plan. There are many stories of this nature about Iolo on the web.
    As I had made a Win7 System Image nine days earlier, I restore it, my PC tests clear of viruses or other malware, using Malwarebytes and also checking with a full scan using Microsoft Security Essentials. So I have a hard time believing that Iolo was able to find all these issues with System Checkup and also with Malwarebytes! SCAM operation, I can only conclude....RRRRRRRUUUUUUUNNNNNNNN!
