    "Can i give negative stars? HORRIBLE STAY AWAY"

    July 8, 2014  |   By innerweb

    Version: System Mechanic Free 12.7.0.43

    Pros

    gives you something to do for the next week trying to restore your computer after this "software" destroys your registry and renders your backups unusable.

    Cons

    well this is about as bad as software can get. not only does it not do what it promises but it in fact destroys your system. by rendering your registry not just empty but unreadable, it does a better job than any malware or virus out there of destroying the very thing you're trying to save by downloading it. irresponsible programmers like this should be jailed.

    Summary

    worse than bad. i would love to meet up (in a dark alley) with the ***holes who wrote this program and the jerks who put fake positive reviews here. come on CNET get your act together. people trust you to weed out the bad software. you really dropped the ball on this one.

    Updated on Jul 8, 2014

    anyone know of a good program to pull data off of a dead machine? tried ultimate boot disk and it is sort of working but slow and tedious.

    did i mention this software is bad?

    "Not to shabby"

    June 21, 2014  |   By Ed Sterling

    Version: System Mechanic Free 12.7.0.43

    Pros

    I have been running System Mechanic paid version for number of years with no complaints. It brought and old XP system back to life, I also run it on a Vista system and Windows 7. I like it better then CC Cleaner with its has a vast assortment of features.

    Cons

    The load up to run is a bit slow.

    "DON'T LET THE REVIEWS BY IOLO EMPLOYEES FOOL YOU"

    June 4, 2014  |   By TECHCRZY

    Version: System Mechanic Free 12.7.0.43

    Pros

    The disk makes a good Frisbee

    Cons

    Free to reel you in. Barely any features compared to any free utility. Paid version is expensive $29.99 a year. This program will mess up your pc! Don't let it touch your registry unless you have a recovery disk. No support what so ever.

    Summary

    CRAP-WARE TRUST ME.
