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.

"Good job at software maintenance but terrible support."

August 20, 2016  |  By Danny331911

2016-08-20 16:02:55  |  By Danny331911

 |  Version: System Mechanic Free 15.5.0.61

Pros

Good at operating system maintenance.

Cons

Support is deaf to complaints. Deceptive non-stop emails tricking you into adding time for upgrade. Upgrade that is included in purchase not available.

Summary

I been trying for sometime to download SMP 16 to upgrade from 15.5. But I always end up back with 15.5. Iolo support is useless and just tells me to do what I have already done several times to include completely uninstalling SMP 15.5 and then downloading again only to end up with the same version I just uninstalled. Right now, I'm fed up with iolo's constant emails that deceive me into adding time along with setting up double billing so that I'm paying twice for the same thing like *upgrading* from SM Supreme to Pro and ending up with a new subscription rather than the upgrade. Complaints fall on deaf ears.

"Stick With Free Version - Customer Service is Terrible"

 |  Version: System Mechanic Free 15.5.0.61

Pros

Start with Free and stick with Free.

Cons

Customer Service is Terrible. Upgrade was bad. Hasn't worked since. And I'm paid up till 2020. If I could go lower than 1 Star I would have.

Summary

Emailed their customer service numerous times for fix (over past month and a half) Nothing. Uninstalled/Installed program numerous times - Nothing. I even bought a brand new Dell computer and tried installing - Nothing. I have a service I have paid for till 2020 and - Nothing. This is all for their Standard version. I did try their Free PRO version and guess what - it worked. I told them that and maybe pro-rate my account to the PRO version - Nothing. Terrible Customer Service and Practices.
