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.

Requested when uninstalling

been using for years works great even on windows 7 and helps get everything sorted to a point of running smooth again I highly recommend it though windows 7 8 and 10 don't like letting it be the main antivirus without manually turning it on almost every time

Favorable

My bank accounts were compromised. The bank recommended I take my desktop to the Geeks at BestBuy for disinfection. USTechSupport, part of Iolo Technologies, was able to do a remote deep cleaning at my desk - saving me considerable time and effort. Took about an hour and a half.

Ultimate Defense installed but inoperative in 2nd laptop

I purchased SM Ultimate Defense (invoice BV5233****; 01-29-2021) and installed on one laptop on top of SM standard version. I thought I had done the same in a 2nd laptop which had installed SM standard whose subscription is expired and when I attempt ti install SM UD, I received a warning that it is already installed. However, I have only installed SM std in this laptop

Upgrade

I don't have any problems with System Mechanic other than the fact that I seem to have to type in a minimum of 100 characters proceed with the upgrade. I just want to get it done as quickly as possible without this nonsense.
