Editors' Review

+

System Mechanic Professional is a full-featured program to help you keep your computer free of problem files and other junk that can impact performance. With an intuitive interface and plenty of options, this program is accessible to users of all experience levels.

Pros

Good explanations: As you work through the program, you'll see plenty of thorough explanations about what types of scans it performs, what types of files it's looking for, and why. This makes it much easier to determine what you want to remove from your machine and how doing so will impact performance.

Full evaluation: Unlike many similar programs, the trial version of System Mechanic Professional gives you the ability to fix the errors the scans find. It's a full-featured trial, and the only limitation is that it expires after 30 days, which is plenty of time to determine whether you want to purchase a license for $69.95.

Cons

No individual selection: When you're viewing the scan results and deciding what to do, you don't have the option of saving specific files. Instead, you just have to trust that the program did a good job of differentiating between items that you need and those you do not.

Bottom Line

System Mechanic Professional provides comprehensive tune-up services for your PC. And because the trial version allows you to access all features of the program, you can really make an informed decision about whether or not to purchase the full app.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of System Mechanic Professional 12.7.0.62.

"Not as good as they say"

December 17, 2015  |  By tinkjt

2015-12-17 19:43:15  |  By tinkjt

 |  Version: System Mechanic Professional 14.5.1.37

Pros

Interface ok

Cons

Did not catch all the errors. Ran Iobit Advanced System Care 9 free after running all the programs on System Mechanic Pro. Iobit found 222 registry errors, 638 privacy issues, 351.4 mb of junk files, 7 internet problems, 2 shortcut errors, 9 performance issues, and 2 browser security issues. You decide which one is best.

"Good performer....now with ADWARE at no extra cost."

October 20, 2015  |  By Woopimow

2015-10-20 18:22:02  |  By Woopimow

 |  Version: System Mechanic Professional 14.5.1.37

Pros

Does what it claims to do and does it well (as far as I can tell).

Cons

Now contains a fraudulent and misleading advertising campaign (pre pay for a discount on next version).

Summary

It is such a shame that an otherwise outstanding app has been compromised by such a pathetic attempt at scamming money from customers.

"Free <br />Found it to be adequate for a couple of years"

October 04, 2015

2015-10-04 09:06:24

 |  Version: System Mechanic Professional 14.5.1.37

Pros

Easy to use interface. Does help out slightly

Cons

Was my favourite for several years. However lately got tired of how slow my computer was still running. So decided to try a different product.
After reading many reviews went with AVG Tune Up 2015. Free 15 day trial. Ran System Mechanic first. Then AVG. AVG found over 1,000 items that System Mechanic had missed and cleaned them all out computer now running far faster.
Going to cancel my subscription to this product.

Summary

If your looking for a free product go with this one.
However if you are willing to shell out $40 definitely bypass this and get AVG Tune Up. Far superior product
System Mechanic is rated as 21
AVG is number 8

"Purchased because Dell endorsed it."

May 12, 2015  |  By bafire14

2015-05-12 19:03:55  |  By bafire14

 |  Version: System Mechanic Professional 14.5.1.37

Pros

Made a lot of changes to system but everything I read says don't change your system.

Cons

Seems to slow down computer and make tons of changes. I uninstalled it but it still lingers. I did pay for the professional version and now wish I hadn't. It seems to make to many changes

Summary

Not really sure this product does any good, registry was changed with every scan or multiple changes were made at the same time to registry. No one will give an honest review and Dell states they just "Sell it" and they do not endorse it. However it comes on the newer dell products as an add on.
