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: Bought at the local Walmart store. Installed on a machine with Windows 7, loaded OK. After installation it asked for the Actvation Code which is on a card inside the case, after entering the code I was redirected to their internet site which told me the activation code had expired on 2-14-2015!
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 have been using System Mechanic for years but in the last year or so System Mechanic developers have clogged up the pipes of their software. What was once a great computer repair tool now creates its own errors along with damaging your windows system and registry.
Summary: The program may have helped to clean up my computer a bit but did not got rid of the virus situation and I did have to take it to a computer repair shop. I also did insert the disk in two older down computers where it did not even start to run, maybe the computers were running on versions to old for...
Summary: Would not install correctly on my computer. Missing commands in software they know they are selling a bad product! Was on hold with customer service for a hour. They didnt solve the problem was trying to get me to pay addition money to solve their problem with their software! Returned!
Summary: This program is horrible. It slowed my computer down drastically and didn't do much more. When I completely uninstalled it, then everything was faster. At least as fast as it was before I installed this junk. Very disappointed.
Summary: At first, it seemed to work, I used it on two PCs. The one that has nothing (programs) on it, is still fast at doing nothing. However, my main PC with programs has reverted back to the same sluggish operation that I bought this for. I went through the toolbox, but that didn't help.
Summary: I didn't get a chance to use it because they sent me the wrong keys for it. The one's they sent didn't work. When I requested a different download or different keys, they didn't respond to my problem.
