Editors' Review

+

System Mechanic Free helps you maximize your system's performance by addressing a number of common issues. Through this app, you can tune up multiple aspects of your computer to maximize both loading and processing speeds.

Pros

Lots of info: When you first open System Mechanic Free, you can take advantage of the various video tutorials and articles available to help you get a feel for all the software's features. The app itself also presents you with lots of useful information about what types of problems you may be experiencing and allows you to select which you want to fix individually. And it also provides warnings about potential security issues and makes recommendations about how to fix them.

Speedy: All of the processes we tested in this app were carried out quickly. The app also shows you how you can get your machine to start up faster by managing the number of apps that open when you turn the computer on.

Cons

Choppy navigation: This app's interface isn't the easiest to navigate. It's not too hard to find the features you're looking for, but they're not always where you expect them to be, so it can take a bit of poking around until you get used to the layout.

Bottom Line

System Mechanic Free is a good tool for speeding up you computer and helping you keep it running smoothly. While the navigation could be better, all of the tools you'd expect are there, and the amount of information provided about your system and its problems makes this a good choice for inexperienced users.

"One of the Better General Utilities"

November 30, 2016  |  By dchun3271

2016-11-30 21:13:46  |  By dchun3271

 |  Version: System Mechanic Free 15.5.0.61

Pros

Fairly easy to install and use Bought mine at a local Fry's for $39.95. Unlimited installation. Has all types of utilities to keep up your Ram, hardware, etc. maintenance. Comes with their System Shield anti virus

Cons

Had download the System Shield from the iolo web site since the CD version was not compatible with this Windows 10 version. System Shield does not play well with other antivirus such as McAfee or Symantic. NO more rebates given.

Summary

Been using it for years so I no complaints

"easy to use, great price"

November 26, 2016  |  By Sonicbodhi

2016-11-26 20:04:27  |  By Sonicbodhi

 |  Version: System Mechanic Free 15.5.0.61

Pros

I've always found System Mechanic to be easy to use, and very useful for keeping my pcs streamlined and running efficiently. I would recommend this product to anyone that doesn't want the headache of running down problems manually. The price is right also, as the company offers many promotional discounts as well!

Cons

Would like to see startup time optimized as it can take a while to initialize, esp. on an older system. My laptop is about 3 years old and not powerful compared to my pc, so sometimes it takes a bit of time to initialize. This is not a real biggie, though, in my opinion.

"Beyond Windows"

November 22, 2016  |  By Vrandyhome

2016-11-22 04:17:36  |  By Vrandyhome

 |  Version: System Mechanic Free 15.5.0.61

Pros

Program Accelerator truly re-aligns files better than Windows defragment (which only compacts files). Vast array of tune-up tools that deep deeper than Windows tools.

Cons

You need to properly "configure" tune-up tools so that they do not get too aggressive.

Summary

A valuable option to have and explore for operating system tuning.

"Best PC maintenance program I have ever used"

November 18, 2016  |  By robertk2

2016-11-18 20:54:27  |  By robertk2

 |  Version: System Mechanic Free 15.5.0.61

Pros

I have tried a number of other competing products and have settled on iolo System Mechanic because it works faster, better, easier, and with lower overhead than any of the other programs that I have tried. It finds more files to clear and clean, and does so faster than the competition, and gives you more control over what and how to control startup programs that slow down your computer. iolo System Mechanic just gives you a smarter, faster more controlled experience of how your computer functions. I have been a telcom support tech for a national company for over 18 years and I have found this program the most reliable PC maintenance program that I have used, and I recommend to all my friends.

Cons

I have not found any negatives so far.
