"I have used better"

October 27, 2012  |  By TerrysComputerWorks

 |  Version: System Mechanic Free 11.0.5.2

Pros

Does clean the computer, and is free

Cons

Does not fully remove all errors

Summary

I put this cleaner head to head with another free system cleaner that I use and like. I ran this cleaner several times first to make sure all arrors were gone. Then I ran the cleaner that I always use and like. The cleaner I like found additional errors. Sytem Mechanic does work in cleaning your system of errors, it just dont clean them all.

"A very useful tool for system performance."

October 16, 2012  |  By EireFury

 |  Version: System Mechanic Free 11.0.5.2

Pros

This product is updated often with new and very useful tools for keeping your pc running at peak performance. It also has a fairly easy user interface that allows you to recover lost files and replace them to your system. It also has a function for helping the user to obtain updated drivers for system hardware that can be very handy.

Cons

As System Mechanic evolves, it is becoming more complex and a bit harder for a new pc user to grasp. As with many programs of this nature, a user must use caution with some of the more technical functions such as the registry cleaner. If you don't have a good understanding of registry files, it is possible to delete files that your system needs to run. This problem has been placated somewhat with the Undo Action function and a tutorial screen that novice pc users should take advantage of.

Summary

A great system tool that is constantly evolving and improving to aid in peak performance of your pc.

"Great Product"

October 10, 2012  |  By MLSOSKI

 |  Version: System Mechanic Free 11.0.5.2

Pros

Runs in the background, has comprehensive tools, works great!

Cons

None. It does what is says...

Summary

I've used System Mechanic for probably 2 years now, and its a great product. It runs in the background and keeps my computer running well! It has so many tune-up tools and capabilities and I've never had any issues with any of them. It explains your computer's issues, when they occur, very clearly, and then allows you to take care of them. If you use your computer a lot and do many different things with it, you'll want to have this software guarding your computer's ability to fulfill its purpose for you!

"Outstanding!"

October 08, 2012  |  By Robin_Sawyer

 |  Version: System Mechanic Free 11.0.5.2

Pros

Streamlined, effective, user friendly, non-intrusive, doesn't use up CPU or PF, customizable

Cons

Can't think of any.

Summary

I've used Iolo's System Mechanic for over 7 years now. I absolutely love the ease of use with All-In-One tools to optimize my computer with the click of one button, as well as the options to address localized issues within the individual tools sections. I can't really comment on their customer service as I've never needed to use their customer service. I'd tried other optimizers in the past, but once I found System Mechanic, I stopped looking.
