"It works."

July 22, 2007  |  By Coyney

 |  Version: System Mechanic 7.1.7

Pros

Not being a "nerd" I am probably not in the "nockers" league, but I was able to work it out and that must say something. It improved my computers performance and isn't that what it's supposed to do?Maybe I'm missing something.

Cons

It dosen't come with a pensioners discount.

"Absolute Nightmare - Suggestion - leave well alone!"

July 21, 2007  |  By andy900

 |  Version: System Mechanic 7.1.7

Cons

The two times I've tried Iolo's System Mechanic it completely froze my computer, rendering me unable to do anything but a forced manual shut-down and restart in safe mode to uninstall it. I should have learnt the first time but it completely froze me out in two different version numbers! To be avoided at all costs!

"For the Birds!"

July 17, 2007  |  By graham.hyatt

 |  Version: System Mechanic 7.1.7

Cons

I've allowed 1 star because I cannot insert a negative score. This is because Version 7 will destroy your system. It's not just junk, if you accept its findings of (false positive) malware, and allow it to deal with it, it will do damage to your system. I wrote them online - they will not provide a useable email address - back in January/February and followed up 3 times, the last in March, for which I got the response on March 9, "This automated response has been sent to you because you currently have an open product support issue. It is not meant to take the place of a response by our Customer Service staff. Your product issue will still be handled." They've not been back to me since.

System Mechanic 6 was fairly good, and I re-installed that. Don't touch Version 7, or you'll regret it ...

"Junk for Vista"

July 07, 2007  |  By z95b10

 |  Version: System Mechanic 7.1.7

Pros

Nothing

Cons

It WILL NOT WORK with multiple accounts under Vista. Iolo WILL NOT support their product. Iolo WILL NOT refund your hard earned money. The only reason it has one star is because they won't let me give it none.
