Iolo System Mechanic 12.7: nice uilities, real-time drag
16 May 2014
Excerpt: Since back in the day, when Norton's CrashGuard consistently crashed it itself rather than made Windows more stable, I've been skeptical about programs that promise to "improve" Windows in real time. Iolo's System Mechanic 12.7 does nothing to change my mind.
Excerpt: A good thing to do if your PC is slow and cumbersome is to install a system optimisation tool, and there are few as good as System Mechanic 8.5. Like other system tools, System Mechanic will remove temporary files, clean your registry and defragment your hard drive.
Pros: ActiveCare 2.0 is great addition and DriveSense is much improved in 8.5.
Cons: You buy SM7 and need to download 8.5 to get the full benefits.
