This system maintenance program gives you all the tools for ridding your computer of clutter and problematic files.

System Mechanic Professional has a very professional, intuitive user interface. We were able to jump right in and the process required us merely to click the Scan button to find any problems. The program very quickly recognized several registry, memory, and startup issues with our system. We liked that the program gave us the option of viewing and manually selecting the problems we wanted to fix before proceeding. A wizard is offered with almost every repair to walk you through the process. We half expected to receive a trial limitation message preventing us from fixing all of the found problems, but that proved not to be the case. Our registry and memory errors were removed, and our memory was optimized. The program offers its own Internet security options, but it worked well with the antivirus and firewall programs we already had installed on our computer.

A built-in Help feature is available should you need it. Updates are available for immediate download, but other than extending the trial period, we can't think of any changes we'd make to the program. Novice users should beware of any program that alters your registry, but more experienced users will appreciate this comprehensive optimization program.

"Ruined my PC!!!"

February 28, 2013  |  By ofirnak91

 |  Version: System Mechanic Professional 11.0.5.2

Pros

thought it was good :(

Cons

While wiping my free space the program stuck when got to 99% for several hours (not responding) so I forced it to stop with start task manager - completely ruined my PC. missing files (ieframe.dll, NVIDIA/PhysX folder...) which I CANNOT replace/drag/uninstall/delete/replace with new installed new ones!!!
Tried EVERYTHING with friends (experts) support nothing changed.
CAN'T delete files (pictures, movies, system files) remove files, launch games, install and launch software - NOTHING!!!
Now I have to format my beloved PC :(
BTW - this is not a virus or any other vicious-ware, I Have ESET NOD 32 antivirus plus I checked with other online antiviruses.

Summary

STAY AWAY!!!

Updated on Feb 28, 2013

"Awsome Utility!"

February 08, 2013  |  By GoatReview

 |  Version: System Mechanic Professional 11.0.5.2

Pros

Ease of use. Value for price. Unlimited home licensing for all of your PC based devices.

Cons

Application of tuneup definitions not always accomplished immediately.

Summary

4.9 out of 5 Stars! One of THE best overall utility softwares available today! The bundled applications included with Iolo's System Mechanic Pro far exceed in value for the purchase price!

"Russian Roulette with this program"

January 02, 2013  |  By OIF2Sniper

 |  Version: System Mechanic Professional 11.0.5.2

Pros

Free for thirty days.

Cons

Disabled my computer fully.

Summary

First of all I used this program two computers ago and it was a dream to use.
I just built a new computer and had just finished updating windows, installing all my programs and games and was loving my new system. Decided to install System Mechanic to optimize my internet and clean up my registry, remove junk files stuff like that. It was a flawless experience......until I restarted my computer. Lets just say it didn't start-up anymore. Repair disk was unusable. it definitely deleted something that was crucial to system start-up. I had to reformat the drive reinstall everything EXCEPT System Mechanic and everything is great again. Will this work on your computer? Maybe. Or maybe just shoot yourself in the face now.

"There is no better system tool on the market"

December 23, 2012  |  By submariner571

 |  Version: System Mechanic Professional 11.0.5.2

Pros

Like I said.. it does it all and I haven't had any problems when I had windows 7 or XP.

Cons

None I can think of.

Summary

Windows XP and 7 it has performed flawlessly. Windows 8 is kind of new still checking it out, but so far so good!
I have put Sys. Mech. Pro on some older and slow machines and it boosted the performance and speed by at least 75%!! I wont use anything else!

"Major functions disabled after end service plan"

October 11, 2012  |  By surfer10k

 |  Version: System Mechanic Professional 11.0.5.2

Pros

Very complete tool box
Good UI

Cons

Yearly 30 dollar price tag. After one year I decided to opt out of the service plan. Now I no longer have access to basic tools. Iolo states that I need a service plan to for example, use the context menu tool. Ridiculous. This after having paid $59.99 for the product.
I could understand them no longer updating the product, but disabling functionality for a product that I purchased ??

Summary

Don't buy.

"HORRENDOUS - STAY AWAY"

September 29, 2012  |  By andie0627

 |  Version: System Mechanic Professional 11.0.5.2

Pros

I used to be good

Cons

It wrecked my computer! It took days to put back together and it's still not right after that (purchased beginning of Aug.2012). It takes over your system, deleted my most important files that could NEVER be recovered. Lucked out that I had a paid back-up service and got some of them back. It disabled the Windows recovery, didn't recover on it's own - couldn't get my computer back using it. I am fairly techie but it was a beast to get off. I'm running Win.7Pro and all hardware is current and WAS working well. I used to like the program years ago so bought it when I received a newsletter from iolo (makers). The support was horrible, I finally got someone in North America actually working on it (supposedly sent to senior staff) and after sending a system snapshot and later telling them I wanted a refund because I was scared to ever use it again, they stopped replying and I never did get any help with putting my system back together.

Summary

NEVER, NEVER AGAIN. BEWARE!!!
There was not an option to select no stars, that is the only reason I chose one. It wouldn't let me finish otherwise. BTW, I love CNet, have for many years. Thank you for being here!

I meant "it" used to be good, not "I" ;-)
