System Mechanic Review

Active Care: Here in the Active Care settings you can view and change a list of tools that System Mechanics will run in the background when you are away from your PC, where it will analyze and repair problems that it finds.

LiveBoost: Here you can see and disable any of the tools used to do real-time boosting for your Processor, Memory, and Drives. You can also configure it to your liking.

Anti-Malware: Here it will let you know if you are protected or not and give you the option to disable the anti-malware monitoring if you so desire to. (Though I don’t know why you would) And of course, give you the chance to learn more about their internet security software that you can buy to enhance the performance of System Mechanics.

Firewall: Again here it will let you know if you are protected with a Firewall (Windows includes this in their operating system) and once again you can disable it from here and learn more about their firewall software.

The last two tools mentioned are more of a sales pitch than anything else, though it does let you know if you are covered or not with security software, should one of your programs fail to work.

    At the point when will individuals wake up and understand that Iolo System Mechanic is an aggregate trick. To begin with, when I moved up to the new form it quit working totally. It has now been 6 weeks and Tech backing couldn’t mind less. They have done nothing to help me get my project reactivated. As a result, they stole my cash as the project no more works.

    Second, notwithstanding when the system is working it does for all intents and purposes nothing. Truth be told, there are numerous reports, and it transpired likewise, that the system really harms essential capacities like Internet pace. It additionally impulsively needs to “advance” the hard drive creating pointless wear and tear.

    The system puts on a show to do a great deal of work when in reality it is doing nothing. Test it yourself. Run a full enhancement. At that point reboot your PC and rerun the same enhancement. It will play out the same improvements and report precisely the same as it did some time recently. In the event that it was streamlined some time recently, why is it being upgraded in the very same way once more? This is evidence the framework is an aggregate trick and really does nothing.

    In the event that you need to squander your cash on this trick garbage item proceed, yet don’t say you weren’t cautioned.

      Hi Carlton, sorry to hear that the Tech support has not helped you with your product, they don’t do themselves any good by not providing help to their customers. I will say that System Mechanics does do one thing, and that is it cleans out the junk files if nothing else.

      I will take you up on running the program and then reboot my system and run it again to see if it reports the same issues. If it does I will update my review and report the issues at hand.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your experience with System Mechanics.

    This is the first time I heard of System Mechanics, as a neat freak of course I have my junk cleaning program of choice, CCleaner. Have you heard of it?

    I was quite interested in this program until I see Carlton’s comment. Have you rebooted to check the speed? I’d like to know how well this works to consider it.

    Thanks for sharing!


    1. Kim (Post author)

      Hi Anh, I also use CCleaner, I find it does a better job in removing errors in the registry that the System Mechanic. And yes I did do the reboot thing and ran it again, It did not show anything that needed repair.

      I don’t know about Carltons experience with this software but I have found an increase in the performance of my own computers. I even did some searching on the reviews of this product and came across all good reports. My best go to site is and even they have rated this high. you can check out their article here I hope this has helped in your decision.

      Now if your computer is running fine with using CCleaner, I would stick with that.

      I’m glad you stopped by and if you found this helpful, why not share this with others. 🙂 Thank you, stop by again.
