This review is from: iolo System Mechanic Premium - For 3PC
Pros: I have been a customer of Iola's System Mechanic for several years, and use it on my two desktop and one laptop computers. I like the way you can elect to let the program automatically scan your computer or manually choose a variety of functions to review and improve. I am especially fond of the automatic registry backup. Recently one of my desktops failed to load due to a registry error. Dell stated the only remedy was to wipe and reload the hard drive. I then remembered the registry backup function in System Mechanic, and was able to access the backup in safe mode and restore the computer using a registry backup. What a lifesaver.
Cons: Occasionally the registry defragmenter/compactor will get caught in a loop and run at each startup.
Other Thoughts: Great product for both novices and nerds. I routinely purchase System Mechanic as gifts for my friends with computers.READ FULL REVIEW
