And yet "Another" push..... from 90's Software.
It wasn't really good in the 90's either, Altho popular.......... 2*

It joins the Ranks of DvDFab, Nero etc.

Very buggy soft. Avoid it all costs.
After i installed it i could not remove it: system hangs up after uninstall, forced PC restart and windows don't boots anymore, unless you allow System restore to fix it. System restore fixes it but you have again this program in your PC :P

... so i had to re-install windows >.< ....
by the way, other programs like Yamicsoft gives you more options than this System Mechanic also there are some free windows tunning soft ...

System Mechanic Pro 9.5 - There are some oddities in the "System Shield" anti-virus section of this package that can cause you to lose files due to bugs when downloading. (They download then get deleted with NO WARNING)
This has been reported to Iolo, but the company are not interested in fixing these bugs as they are only going to happen to very few files and they don't think anyone will notice. I found one example file which (If you can download it) you can scan and prove that it is safe. (Even with System Shield!)
Try downloading;
http://download.softpedi...h/CPUFreeBenchMark2.zip
and you will see the bug - a zip file downloads, then the contents of the file are deleted leaving an EMPTY zip file!
Use this only at your own risk!
Iolo suggest excluding the downloads folder from the anti-virus scan!
How stupid would that be?

I purchased this software and it is a rip off. It didnt not recognize my antivirus - Kaspersky. I deleted it and tried to reinstall. It will not reinstall. The customer service is non existant. They have ignored all my requests for help. They got my money and now they have my revew. Avoid this company at all cost.

I have used ths version well for sometime and it does what it professes to do, including some minor internet speedups. The only problem is during the initial installation and if the Registry is already corrupted or there are highjacker hooks into it, the removal of them by SM Pro can be catastrophic (same with other A-V software). That is usually an indicator the OS is already too corrupted to fix and a fresh OS install is needed. The SM Pro suite will do a good cleanup other than in that one instance, although if SM Pro is installed on a dual boot system with a fresh OS, it can also clean the original OS with its many installs. Good software, but not a miracle worker.

Bought version 9 professional software today. Did not install virus component. Takes several minutes for software to open and my XP computer slowed to the point seconds would pass before anything would react to a button push. I uninstalled and reinstalled but only "system restore" saved me. Hate to have paid $35 for the priviledge of screwing up my computer. I don't know why it's not working for me but the fact is it doesn't. Tried a couple of the help topics but they appeared to apply to a software version I don have. Wish I'd bought a different product. In fairness I haven't contacted product support since it's a Friday night. Will repost if they help me figure out how to make it work.
