Dear Iolo Please find enclosed few print-screen photos. As your customer for few years (order reference number 10436****, 2019-09-11), I was not happy to start updating few times and during the process, I was offered to continue with upgrading. Another issue is product name. I subscribed to System Mechanic. Later in the process I revealed that “updating” was not related to the product that I had subscribed to, since your product list with “System Mechanic” in the product name consists of System Mechanic Ultimate Defense (New)63.96 USD System Mechanic Professional (New)55,96 USD System Mechanic (New)39.96 USD System Mechanic Business47.40 USD All product names have System Mechanic at the beginning. Obviously, I missed the product name and I thought that I was going to update my product. It is OK that you try to sell better (and more expensive) product, but do not call it at the first step “updating” and after few steps (and time) you change it to upgrading, especially not to your loyal customer. And, you are doing this too often and I am canceling it again and again. Simply, with good products you do not need such marketing policy. Sincerely yours Dragan Popović

Hi, we had a bug that was causing the constant update notifications. We've since repaired it.

If after now installing the latest one the problem persists, please let me know. Thanks!

Hi. I'm having the same issue too, plus the constant, annoying popup wanting me to upgrade to Ultimate Defense. Seriously considering a clean uninstall and going with CCleaner.

Enables my computers to run faster and better and protects them

Have YouTube demo to show what some of the features do for those of us who are not keeping up with the latest Tech info. What are the advantages of turning on some of the privacy Shield settings. What about running with another security program like Kaspersky?

Use of system mechanic

This is an excellent product which, unlike many other clean up programs, actually works very well. It works in the background, you don't have to keep checking your system. The price is very reasonable, and the system is updated on a regular basis.

Works well on my computer and laptop and user friendly. I also use with a virus scan.

Approval and recommendation. I use a different product for antivirus and privacy from theft and spam.

Software to trust

Always have used System mechanic since I first had a computer many years ago and would not be without it. It has protected all my computers from all types of problems with virus and malware.

User's recommendation: get it asap and keep it upgraded, you wont regret it.

Enables me to clean up unndeeded files and registry items while ignoring other undesired functioalities in the package.

Iolo has loaded this suite with many programs I do not want to use because I use other software which I prefer. Iolo should enable users to uninstall or ignore installation of programs in the suite which they don't want.Be selective about which programs in the suite that you want to use.

My outlook web mail is infected with either virus or malware.

Already scanned sys with your product, Malwarebytes and Avast Premium, but email issue not resolved. Purchased and installed Bitdefender premium. Bitdefender forced removal of all other security programs. Bitdefender found large amount of infected emails and removed them. But problems still exist. All or most of the infected emails appears to have come from crptocurrency sites that I had previously visited.Once my email problem is resolved, I will seek to re-install your product, if possible.

User's recommendation: I think that you have a great product, but might have weakness for email protection.

Uninstalling for new version

For some reason I can't get system mechanic to run. When I click the icon the screen goes blank and nothing happens.
