System Mechanic analyzes your computer for errors and promptly fixes them.

This utility program has been a commanding force since it was first released. So many people complain of lagging Internet speeds and performance issues that it's only natural a program like this would experience popularity. Older computers especially will benefit from a clean-up program like this.

The process begins with a thorough scan of all computer files and identification of any issues with them. Once this is complete, there is a disk defragmentation that begins to clear the clutter off your disks and get rid of unnecessary startup programs. People often download programs that outlive their usefulness and don't realize how to thoroughly cleanse their system from all pieces of that program. The registry can become particularly cluttered.

There's a "LiveBoost" feature that helps to monitor performance and then help speed it up. Speed is almost always the primary complaint of older computers. If your computer is running slow, System Mechanic with their "LiveBoost" can really help. The only downside to this program is that so many of the advanced features will be difficult for novice users to fully take advantage of. They're not particularly laid out well and things can get way too technical for the average computer user. Other than this, this is one of the most powerful cleaning tools on the market today.

Pros

  • The scans feature some of the most advanced tests in computing today
  • Even hidden errors won't be missed
  • Really does increase performance of older comps and newer comps

Cons

  • Things are a bit too convoluted and technical for the novice user
  • Could definitely use an overhaul in the interface department to help less advanced users
