1 out of 5 eggsSystem Mechanic brakes Vista

Pros: I work for the Microsoft Answer Desk. I love this software. I get easy sales at my work to fix the problems this software causes (specificly when used on Vista) because of how bad the software is.

Cons: On Vista Iolo mistakes the needed Windows installer service as junk and deletes it. Preventing any updates from installing and makes it so you can't install any new software for the computer. after a few times of fixing it I got really good but I would never recommend EVER using this program I have multiple customers contact me each day with this problem.

5 out of 5 eggsI HAVE HAD NO CRASHES in my computer for 10 Years

Pros: I If you have a computer with any version of Windows Operating System, you do not have any other alternative to buy the System Mechanic Professional, if you do NOT want to have costly crashes in your computer. The Reasons are:
1. You Protect, Clean and Tune the most inner part of your computer THE REGISTRY. The REGISTRY TUNER is very effective. Then your Registry is Backed up.
2. You Clean and De-fragment your Computer Memory keeping your computer fast and responsive.
3. The Program Accelerator will file ALL your programs in the appropriate format to keep your computer working very fast and efficiently.
4. You will ensure Personal Privacy with the Privacy Cleaner, which protects your private data by erasing browsing and search history in your computer. This is a most against hackers.
5. It will automatically detect and clean your System Clutter which is generated the minute you turn on your computer. This will keep your computer working very efficiently.

Cons: There are more advantages than drawbacks. I have used this Program for over 10 Years, and I am a very Satisfied User. I would recommended to any member of my Family and Friends.

However, I have found that sometimes it does not remove old Registry files that have been removed from my computer.

Other Thoughts: If you want STABILITY in your computer that MICROSOFT does NOT give you, you have one alternative = SYSTEM MECHANIC PROFESSIONAL.
Do NOT waste your time looking anywhere else. I am a user for over 10 years and I have NOT had any crashes since I started using System Mechanic Professional.

1 out of 5 eggs>> FAIL !! <<

Pros: Lots of features.

Cons: Worthless.My son's comp got hosed by the worst virus/malware infection we've ever had while 'protected' by this software. So , even though I got a 3 user licence for 15 bucks, its still not worth even that.

Other Thoughts: I have had a policy of not running ANY anti-virus type of software on my comps for 20 years because they are often as bad as the virusii themselves. This still holds true. Your better off just running a firewall and being careful as to what you click on or open. And ONLY running an antivirus if/when you see suspicious behavior from your computer.

3 out of 5 eggsNot "All In One" solution

Pros: As far as keeping your computer clean, it does a nice job. If you've got Vista or 7 and have the side bar active, it has a nice little "red to green" meter to let you know to push a button. It is light on the OS and doesn't bog things down... sorta (see cons)

Cons: The anti virus is a little cumbersome. On my wife's laptop, I wound up switching to Microsoft Security Essentials. Iolo will start a scan right when you're in the middle of some task resulting in slow performance. Also (and this is the main reason I'm writing this review) the "Search and Recover" is a piece of junk. Search and recover is VERY PICKY (by their own admition) about what it will discover. The result of this is that when I plugged in a HDD for a client that needed recovery (previously formatted), it said that there were NO (0, zip, zilch) files to be recovered. NONE! When I used "Pareto", it found about 60,000 files and many of them were in perfect condition. Happy client. Also I've never had Drive medic help one bit.

Other Thoughts: I enjoy using Iolo Pro because it has good uses, but I think for the heavy duty "rubber meets the road" stuff that matters like saving your computer from a virus, or recovering data, or fixing your MBR or restoring a corrupted OS, you're better off shopping around and using multiple items.

3 out of 5 eggsBetter alternatives

Pros: Does a reasonable job of keeping computer tidy

Cons: Often double boots computer, as it goes through its thing.

Free Ccleaner plus standard Windows software can do everything important that System Mechanic does.

No version number listed on box. You must install it to "discover" what you have.

Other Thoughts: I used System Mechanic for several years.

No longer want it, even if it's free.

5 out of 5 eggsMust have PC utilty

Pros: I have had the standard System Mechanic for over 5 ears now, I happily renew my subscription every year to keep my PC running in top shape. Whenever I reformat my hard drive, this is the first utility I install to run a 'Deep Scan' and repair many hidden errors.

Cons: Never had any issues

5 out of 5 eggsMust have

Pros: Complete system maintenance in one program. I have use SM professional for as long as I can remember - I do not use the antivirus/spyware so I can't comment on that part. - But for regular system maintenance and repairing errors in your system there is no better IMHO.

Program has FREE updates for one year and they keep your machine up to date with any new "problems" .

Cons: not free? yearly renewal but WORTH IT

Other Thoughts: I love SM professional, one click and I can repair my WHOLE system if there are problems. LIke I said before I have used this program for a long time ( somewhere around 10 years? - basically since its release ) and I have it on all of my PC's and use it often just to keep the systems clean of junk and problem free.

I recommend SYSTEM MECHANIC PROFESSIONAL HIGHLY but only the PROFESSIONAL version the "other variations" I do not recommend. GO PRO or don't BUY IT !

5 out of 5 eggsiolo System Mechanic Professional

Pros: I'm retired now and simply want my computer to work without hassles. System Mechanic Pro performs every maintenance task I can think of, which I would eventually need to address manually automatically for me. With or without user custom defaults.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I've used System Mechanic from XP, thru Vista to Win7 without a glitch. I highly recommend it.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely Best of Breed

Pros: See Thoughts Below

Cons: None to Date

Other Thoughts: Not a worry with System Mechanic Pro 10.5--not even with Windows 7 or XP Pro. The management of registers and clutter keeps my kennel absolutely spotless. I can't comment on the virus protection: I still use Norton 360, but there are no conflicts that I've seen. Watch for some vendors to be selling out Version 8. The best result is to buy directly from Iolo--and the service is super. By the way, it does cover all laptops, not just 3. I use it on 5 at the moment and 3 of them were running like new, even after one crashed.
