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.

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of System Mechanic 12.7.0.68.
