7 March 2015
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! What I just bought it on 3-6-2015 how is that possible. Called the 800 number found on their website and the rep said that he could not do anything about that.
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. Their speed boost program lets you choose different levels of power. If you choose ultimate and keep it there windows will start generating BIOS warning's from overclocking.
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 the System Mechanic, no problem, but I did not like that it did not to the newer computer what I was hoping 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! Get Webroot installed with no problems.
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. Hoping a new installation would help, I requested that they send the DVD I ordered on 12-20-2014. I purchased this software from Iolo, but they have no in-house 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.
