Advertising on Desktops

I was trying to compile a build for a steam app and system mechanic advertised on my desktop using my remaining system memory ultimately causing the app creation software to crash midway into compiling. System Mechanic used to be good, then you lowered your standards...

Apology

So far, So Good

This is my first time trying Iolo System Mechanic. It has a simple interface and is straightforward on how to navigate. It doesn't take up a lot of space and so far no annoying ads popping up. So far, so good.

Awesome Product

Awesome product and you're not forced to auto-renew. You have that option but this is the only one I can opt out I found without calling numbers.

Privacy gaurduan

iolo wanted to be a premium service, but in the last 15 years has not made it past Norton's. All they do is block websites and not give solutions. This is not a service we need, as we need to navigate the web to connect with smaller companies to do business.I do not care for the Unhelpful pop-ups and lack of mitigations. Have to use a different computer to just get through to my clients.

User's recommendation: iolo used to be a premium service, what happened that they lost IBM and the general PC users?

Aggressive upselling

Iolo Technologies - Aggressive upselling
Update by user Apr 28, 2022

n/a

Original review updated by user May 27, 2022
System Mechanic Ultimate Defence is technically an excellent product, but the constant, highly aggressive upselling is so obtrusive that I'm considering junking the software. You can't call Iolo from outside the US (which is very unhelpful), so you have to use Live...

System mechanic Pro is awesome.

I am using the system mechanic Pro from iolo and it has never let me down in any aspect. Not only that the UI is simple and easy to use. So it doesn't matter if you are a tech geek or not. In the end I would say that it is the best 1 click optimizer.

User's recommendation: Recommended.

Detects bugs and fixes them

Im an old iolo customer. Iolo has always fixed my system problems and has always been a part of my system. However, since last month I have been facing issues. My software wont run in the background. I talked to one of the customer service providers and they asked me to update it. Turns out they were right. My computer runs smoothly now.

User's recommendation: Definitely worth a shot.

You said to use "chat" to resolved my issue with system mechanics I installed in my PC but no result or no answer. The short-cut icon never works.y PC

I installed system mechanics in my PC as a matter of fact I already make two payments because I am satisfied with the product but lately when I click the short-cut It will never appear in my PC monitor. Kindly resolve this issue before I do something else. Thank you.

User's recommendation: Not if I am not satisfied.

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.

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.

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.
