Not so good 01/29/2013
This review is from: iolo System Mechanic Premium - Unlimited PCs (install it on all your home PCs)
Works better than Norton Utilities, but that is a very very low standard of performance for computer maintenance!
This program comes with a set of other programs that it wants to install on your computer. One of them is their antivirus. After the computer scan it was directed (available options) not to interfere with my installed anti virus/firewall but System Mech. set a parameter in the computer to disable my anti-virus/firewall at boot up, each and every time. Somehow it over rides the Windows boot start up commands.
Instead of making a product that works well on its own, iOLO seems more intent on installing and then selling you its other software such as its anti-virus.
The program will not comply with the after scan options you select. It does its thing and you live with the consequence, like it or not.
Thankfully I have a full system back up for restoration.
