When I received the opportunity to take Iolo's System Mechanic software for a test drive, I jumped at the chance. Having an older desktop that I prefer to work on, I figured this program could only help it!
It was easy to install. I just downloaded it, clicked the yes button, and off it went!
I came to the screen above and had it scan my system. After a couple minutes, a screen popped up telling me what was wrong with my system. Basically, I'm just loaded down with junk from stuff I've downloaded, surfing the web, and the like.
I had System Mechanic repair all. A few minutes later, it had done it's job! I then chose to run the CRUDD remover. CRUDD stands for Commonly Redundant or Unneccessary Decelerators and Destabilizers.
CRUDD remover might be my favorite feature of System Mechanic. It scans your system and finds all the redundant programs that you have installed. For example, I discovered that I had 8 search toolbars installed. Rather than uninstalling these programs for you, System Mechanic simply shows you what similar programs you have and lets you choose which ones to keep or delete.
After running CRUDD and the initial tasks, I received a good status on my desktop. I didn't run all the in-depth tools that System Mechanic offers, but Old Faithful is now purring like a kitten, in just about an hour of time.
List Price $49.95
I'd definitely recommend this
