Iolo System Mechanic 10
4 January 2011
Summary: Verdict: Iolo's System Mechanic 10 is a competent utility that can, in most cases, revitalise your rig. The software is very easy-to-use and doesn’t require any real expertise so it’s great for novices as well as for hardcore users.
Pros: Easy-to-use and intuitive interface, comprehensive repair tools.
Cons: The application will need to restart your PC a fair bit to get its work done, you'll need an Internet connection to activate it.
Summary: The focus on utility and choice makes System Mechanic 8.5 useful, and it presents itself in a way that's as clutter-free as you wish. If you want one-touch optimisation, this is your path to happiness. But if you can't keep yourself from tweaking everything that's tweakable, you'll be a very happy geek. System Mechanic remains the best bang for the buck, even at its full price. Norton Utilities pales by comparison.
Summary: It is a fact of Windows life that your computer’s performance will decrease directly proportional to the use to which it is put – much to the delight of those who develop software to remedy this situation
