iolo System Mechanic 8.5


This excellent PC maintenance tool packs enough simplicity and depth for pros and novices alike.

One-click scan and repair ; Provides a system rating before and after repair ; Fixes System Mechanic 8.0's problems

Iolo System Mechanic 8.0 review


Iolo System Mechanic 8.0 is a tune-up program that aims to restore even the most poorly treated of PCs to good humour by fixing a battery of system problems and conflicts.

Iolo System Mechanic 8.0 isn't perhaps the miracle worker Iolo claims it to be, and many of its features can be accessed elsewhere, but it does do a good job of fixing the many startup and registry problems that afflict many PCs.
