i used this software twice ;when i purchased my first laptop but after the subscription expired i didn’t try it again for several years because as u say it consumes a lot of system resources, but the most annoying thing was getting calls from Deli India as well as other places in India. they wanted to get me signed up for their remote PC care. offering apps to safe guard my PC and a plan to remove virus and malware infections . one year $150.00 two years $250.00 Etc. the apps they offered in the deal were all free apps u can get for yourself online and they had all my information. IP , phone number, address all my info i gave to system mechanic. and were monitoring my PC and modem. When i had trouble with the software crashing i called the number on the box for help and guess where the call ended up ??? U GUESSED RIGHT ! Deli India It’s been over seven years and i still get calls even after changing my tune up software and internet provider They won’t take no! for an answer. I think those who try this should be warned about this. Nice software, bad business policy.
If you’ve never used a system cleaner before, you might find System Mechanic less intimidating then CCleaner. It doesn’t offer such an overwhelming array of checkboxes, and it starts scanning automatically without you having to spend time configuring it.
Unfortunately this simplicity comes at the expense of some transparency – temporary files, cookies and broken registry entries are all flagged as ‘issues’, and even selecting ‘View details in wizard’ doesn’t offer as much information and guidance as you get with CCleaner.
Your PC will also be given a ranking – our test machine which was brand new was branded ‘Critical’, which might cause first-time users to panic. Allowing Iolo System Mechanic to resolve the identified issues (a process accompanied by a nice little cardiograph animation) upgraded its status to Good, though the software also recommended several additional optimizations that required a premium license. The additional options along the left-hand side (Toolbox, ActiveCare, LiveBoost and Security) are also unavailable to users of the free app.
Iolo System Mechanic is a convenient way to clear up temporary files and broken registry entries without delving into Windows’ own maintenance tools, but CCleaner remains our go-to optimzation tool thanks to its transparency, ease of customization, and greater selection of tools. For some odd reason malwarebytes thru up a warning as did Kaspersky after researching it seems ity was a warning that the software constantly “phones home to IOLO”
Beware. When I tried this years ago, I had to register with a phone number and was constantly bugged by IOLO’s foreign call center about problems they “detected” on my computer long after that computer had died and been replaced with no installation of System Mechanic.
I have used the Pro version of this software for years and years and NEVER had any problems with it. It has never “created viruses or malware” for me but maybe I’m an exception? For me the Pro version is excellent software and I will continue to use it. It has never harmed my computers in any way and over the years I’ve had it installed on at least 4 machines – no worries! The regular and Pro versions have the same base engine only the Pro version has more bells and whistles.
I’ve used System Mechanic for over 6 months now on Windows 10 and also my Windows 7 computer. The only problem I’ve ever had was that it stopped working on the Windows 7. I simply fixed it by re-installing System Mechanic. It’s very efficient and works well in the background
System Mechanic is only a 6 month license here, which is not, based on my experience with it and that of others, necessarily better than a kick in the pants. Without a recent full system and data backup System Mechanic is *DANGEROUS*. Yes, the Glary suite of tools is comprehensive, safe and stable. Even the free edition is worth working with. http://www.glarysoft.com. I also very much like Kerish Doctor http://www.kerish.org. which I’ve had on my machine a few weeks. It is most impressive with it’s intelligent, automatic, accurate system error correction and suite of tools. And everything, which is a great lot, that it can do hands off, can be done, if one desires, hands on. The user is in control with the settings.
