Editors' Review


System Mechanic is a full-featured system maintenance program for your computer that fixes problems and keeps things running smoothly. Through this app, you can analyze your system, identify areas for improvement, and fix errors, all with just a few clicks of the mouse.


Analyze and repair: As soon as you open System Mechanic, you can begin to analyze and repair issues that could be slowing down your computer. Once the initial scan is complete, the program displays a summary of issues detected. It also warns you if you don't have malware protection installed and recommends startup programs that could be eliminated.

Optimization: In addition to managing your hard drive, this app can also optimize your Internet configuration to maximize browsing speed. This can vastly improve your browsing experience and generally increase your productivity and effectiveness.


A little slow: Scans and repairs were completed a little slowly compared to other similar programs. But both were completed thoroughly and successfully, and wait times weren't inconveniently long.

Awkward navigation: The interface offers somewhat awkward navigation, with what seem like extra steps to move from one window to another. But once you get used to the setup, you'll find your way around without too much trouble.

Bottom Line

This is a good, free program for keeping your system running smoothly and for identifying and removing threats to your computer. If you'd like to unlock some of the more advanced features, you can pay for and upgrade to the full version for $49.95. But for users of most experience levels, the free version will work just fine.

"Rel 14 is not a version you wan to use"

November 25, 2014  |  By da134

 |  Version: System Mechanic


I have had good results with previous versions of System Mechanic but since I installed Rel 14 it has been a disaster.


After installing Rel 14 I can no longer run the program. It fails with a program error and will not boot. I have been six weeks now talking with the Iolo Tech support with absolutely no results. Tech Support & Customer Service have the same message - They have passed the problem to the System Developers and when they have a fix I would be notified.
I have been using System Mechanic for several years with good results but the response of the Iolo company to the program error on a scale of 0 to 10 is -30.
I asked if they have a back level of the program in their download file and the answer was no. They are completely useless in helping resolve any issue.
On top of it I tried to log on to my account and was not successful. Their response was that "My Account" software was being repaired.
My observation is that this company is on it's way out. Nothing works. You get excuses and no answers. To me that is a sure sign that the company has issues and may not be in business much longer.


Don't use Rel 14 of System Mechanic.

"The best release of System Mechanic to date!"

August 09, 2014  |  By GCG1000

 |  Version: System Mechanic


Incorporates significant improvements in its comprehensive set of utility functions; 'Live Boost' being the best .


SM should incorporate an option to auto repair problems problems found during its 'System Analysis' function, so user intervention is not necessary. Layout and GUI are somewhat awkward for the new user. Requires careful attention to iOLO's tutorial.


Good value for the most complete maintenance package available for Windows.
