Summary: read the reviews on the web i have been using this program since 2009 and have no complaints except advertising thats why only 4 stars
Pros: scrubs hdd and ssd, repairs them, runs automatically, repairs registry, etc, just set it and forget it
Cons: cons not every test good for example : program realigning makes the pc run terrible if it not run on a regular basis and unless you renew your subscription and keep it running your pc will run terrible until you do or run a backup or reinstall windows
Cons: If your not very smart you think you can Defrag SSD Drives. I called them about this and they said it was ok for SSD. Wrong!! While you can deselect c SSD Boot drive it will not keep that selection. You can set your pc for no updates. This software overides that setting. After the update it start...
Cons: I have worked in the I.T. sector for more than 15 years, own an I.T. company and can absolutely say that this product is a joke. Do not waste your time or money on this product. We label this product as junkware and can actually bog down your system and in several cases we have seen it try to "re...
Pros: I've been using this software utility since version #4 and ever since I've never experience any issues with the software itself, keeps my computer clean and fast. Many have been the changes that it's gone through and added features are always a plus. There's the "Professional" edition but I rathe...
Pros: Solid-state hard drive defragmentation, easily turn off annoying programs, protect your pc without blocking everything like Norton tries to. Speeds up your pc ... Does what it says. It's cheap and works great.
Summary: Will not accept another Rebate Offer at New Egg. New Egg needs to clean up Rebate Offers or lose customers. New Egg needs a System Mechanic for Rebates.
Pros: Product keeps your computer system running smoothly. Would not pay more than $10/year for service. Renewed my subscription using New Egg Rebate Offer for Iolo System Mechanic. Not impressed with processing time of New Egg Rebates and will avoid them at New Egg. Does 4 months processing time sound...
Cons: Ordered product on 12-1-14 with a Rebate Offer. Checked on the Rebate Status, it should be mailed be 3-30-15. 4 months is an excessive time frame to receive a rebate. BEWARE OF NEW EGG REBATE OFFERS (super slow processing time).
Summary: I never had issues where it destroys the OS or causes the evil blue screen. In fact, my friend and I have had good results with this software package.
Pros: Software bundle has a lot of features which iolo claims can speed up your system and unclutter it. Sale price of $10 w/ $10 rebate, so the price is unbeatable! Unlimited systems for a 1-year lease.
Cons: Net speed optimizer does not work on versions of Win 7 or 8. Can clean too many files, so use common sense. Competes with AVG Tune up so one software will undo things the other one does.
Cons: From the moment I installed it, the program keeps asking me to upgrade for a reduced fee. It is like I installed an advertisement. Additionally, I installed the program on 2 computers and the program crashed on both. It seems to be working ok on one, but not the other.
