It's easy to be overwhelmed when shopping for utilities for your new laptop, as most software stores feature an entire aisle full of packages with fancy titles. And simply having a good antivirus package is not enough anymore. What is a savvy computer owner to do?
Enter Iolo's System Mechanic (www.iolo.com), which is really many programs rolled into one, all synchronized to work together to keep your laptop or netbook working like new.
System Mechanic 9.5 allows you to fix, clean, and optimize your system with one-click of your mouse. It first analyzes your system to find common problems, reports the issues to you, then allows you to click a button called Repair All to fix everything at once. You can choose either a Quick or a Deep analysis to start your optimization - depending on how much time you want to wait before you see results and how many issues you think your machine has.
A winner of many awards including Cnet's Editors Choice, System Mechanic's features a registry cleaner, disc defragmentation tool, a junk files cleanup tool, an Internet speed optimizer, a utility that cleans and recovers orphaned RAM or random access memory, and a Startup Optimizer that turns off unneeded programs that run at startup which slows your boot time.
The patent-pending Active Care program optimizes your PC during idle time, allowing it to run like a new machine all the time, without your valuable time being spent manually cleaning it.
If you want to be able to control these fix-it processes, System Mechanic gives you the option to do it yourself - utility-by-utility.
Although there are many good choices for utilities available, System Mechanic consistently ranks among the top, and at $39 for use with up to 3 PCs - it is a great value too.
