Finding problems other programs don’t

System Mechanic scans your computer and offers solutions. The most common problems will be disk defragmentation, unwanted startup programs, and registry repair.

LiveBoost monitors your computer, focusing on maximizing performance based what you’re doing. If you start working in Photoshop or start gaming, System Mechanic recognizes the program and optimizes system performance for it.

Internet Security recognized that I already had Comodo Firewall and avast! Antivirus installed, displaying these programs.

PowerTools is a set of utilities that perform specialized tasks. There are also privacy tools that can securely delete files.

A second life

Trying to run any type of photo or video editing software and the computer slowed down dramatically.

After running System Mechanic it found a lot of errors in my computer. A big one was how badly my hard drive was fragmented. I also found that my registry had a lot of errors, even though I use CCleaner to fix registry errors periodically.

After the first optimization, my computer ran much smoother. It was more responsive and opened programs much faster. LiveBoost keeps the system running at optimal speed for any task.

System Mechanic also runs in the background and it was surprising to see a minimal impact on system resources.

Worth the purchase for older computers

System Mechanic’s optimizations have a noticeable positive impact on performance. The standard tools offer all your needs, but the advanced Toolbox features can offer even more customization if you’re willing to learn about each one.

You don’t have anything to lose by trying System Mechanic on an older computer. The in-depth tests the program runs finds and repairs many problems you didn’t know you had.
